Could 20 minutes a day change your life? This Sunday Rev. Ann Ronan shared that a Buddhist nun who was also a Physicist shared with her that 20 minutes of meditation a day could transform a life. Rev. Ann never forgot that.
November begins our theme of Meditation.
I am a fairly recent convert to the practice of meditation and I must admit that I am always wondering if I am “doing it right.” I also sometimes wonder if I “should” be doing it … after all there’s work to be done, kids to keep track of, laundry to do and the never ending list of things that need cleaning.
I’ve heard that Ghandi would meditate extra on busy days … then I muse that Ghandi didn’t have a two year old … and I’m no Ghandi afterall.
So when Meditation Techniques Demonstrated by Deepak Chopra was shared at our service yesterday I was all ears. I came home and replayed the video to absorb even more.
