Okay this is not going to be a long meditation.
As you may have noticed there has been a slight lack of posting here at The Conservative New Ager for the last week or so…
I am juggling my regular work duties with a massive assignment, plus having to go to daily seminars to keep my teaching credential up to date (FYI: All classes you are required to take to keep a teaching credential are utterly worthless and will never make anyone a better teacher…but they will cost you hundreds of dollars and massive amounts of time. I’m so glad we spend so much time putting such useless burdens on teachers).
In other words: I’m swamped. My brain is tapioca and while I would love to go into great detail on the nature of the ego and how to kill it, don’t have the time nor mental coherence to do so.
But I have time to breathe. Slow long breaths. No thoughts. No ideas. No mantra. One or two long breaths that expand not just the chest but the diaphragm as well. And sometimes that is all the meditation we need. So, while I might suggest you go back and focus on one of the more detailed meditations this week…remember every time that you are stressed that before you dive into any assignment to take a long slow breath and clear you mind.
We sometimes forget how calming and effective this simple action can be.
