Mindful stretching & 5 min token sit, soooo relaxed
Zazen plus metta for an unwell relative and other people I know who are living with very difficult circumstances at the moment. Even metta bursting out today for the people I find it the most difficult to be with. Visiting one of these people today (possibly what last night's unsettled sit was a ...
20 mins guided meditation ; The Bondage of Self accessed at http://www.owenbecker.com/podcast/nyc-class-3-16-2013.mp3. Feel better now having sat. Best wishes to all.
Despite having had a lovely day of calm, this sit was anything but - mind was distracted, couldn't get a comfortable position for my injured knee and the sit ended with a mass of head shaking. But then as soon as the timer went off, calm and focus returned. Usually for me this sort of distractab ...
The Celestial Sanctum (Practice) Moon Phase: First Quarter Little ecstasy, no peace and little refreshment. Hands "crossed". Thoughts on Meditation XLII: Happy New Year!

The Celestial Sanctum (Practice) Moon Phase: First Quarter Some ecstasy, no peace and no refreshment. Hands "crossed".
An early morning sit at the zen centre before work. As soon as the bell sounded to start the sit, the thought of “what are we doing here?” popped into my mind. A reasonable question – leaving home around 6 to cycle in the icy dark to sit with others looking at the floor in front of us has pretty ...
Token AM Sit: 5 min breathing to keep a place holder. Fasting: broke fast, healthy vegetables time :)
My entire life I thought it was a sign of weakness to feel sad or cry. Even writing it now makes me feel weak. That is ridiculous. I am human and I am hurting. The fact that I expressed that to the person who hurt me tonight means I'm growing. That in and of itself is amazing. I am amazing. And ...
Stillness, contentment and gratitude.
