How in the world does one go from having closets, dressers, baskets, and shelves to having ONE book bag, ONE carry-on suitcase and a COMMUNAL bag for five people. Well, this is the feat we are undertaking and it is proving to be an arduous task. We have sold, given away and thrown away so much, yet there still seems to be more.
Moving is never an easy task. And condensing your life to a suitcase and a carryon is definitely a feat. Yet, I think more challenging than those, is the realization that relationships will be left behind as you journey forward.
My first thoughts of meditation was what is this woo-woo stuff / how in the world am I going to be able to sit still and be quiet / I have too much going on to meditate / how is this going to help me. All of this filled my mind, yet I figured it would not hurt to give it a try.
Meditation is essentially the art of focusing your attention. Whether you focus on your breath, a mantra (or scripture) or use visualization; meditation is simply being intentional with your focus.
