As I work to deepen my yoga practice I am forced to acknowledge that eventually, at some point, probably in the near-ish future, most likely soon, I will have to embrace the concept of meditation. And that’s actually very exciting, as I do believe strongly in the value and benefits of a meditation practice. The issue for me is a logistical one…I’m fidgety, I can’t sit still, and getting my brain to focus on nothing, for an extended period of time is virtually impossible. The good news is…I take the words virtually impossible as a personal challenge. So tomorrow I’m going to try this whole meditation do-dad out and see how I fare. In order to inspire me I created my own version of a mandala today in my art journal. I once saw a group of Tibetan monks create a phenomenally beautiful mandala out of coloured sands over a number of days…this is nothing in comparison, but it’s a start at least. Wish me luck.
