There are so many things I would like to do such as yoga, pilates, buy more books, buy more gifts and so forth. I don’t like money I have no desire to possess heaps of it, but I hate how not having it really restricts you from the stuff you want to do.
Today I attempted to meditate, I thought I would do my first session for ten minutes. I soon realised that meditating for ten minutes as a first attempt is ambitious to say the least.
I struggled with focusing on the here and now, on my breathing and keeping my mind clear. I found thoughts regarding the past, concerns about the future creeping into my conciousness polluting my present.
I decided that completing five minutes instead of ten is a more realistic expectation and decided to focus on the image of a pebble, and the path of the pebble in a stream. Focusing on this image and trying to stick with it for five minutes felt great. I felt a little light headed and like I had stretched my lungs too.
Perhaps sticking with five minutes for this week is a good idea.
