Meditations

Work In Progress....

UPDATE as of May 2022: The manuscript has been sent to the publisher for the initial layout. It will still take time - but we are pleased with the progress.

The Bibles speaks of meditation in many ways. Of course, we pray as we must.  But then we run out of the door and our busy lives take over. The Bible also tells us to wait. See Psalm 27:14, for example. We need to take time to let all of the thoughts that are swirling around come together in a meaningful  way. That is meditation. And it is not easy. We have to make it happen. This book suggests an approach to help you do just that.

EARLY EXCERPTS: 

It is about being aware that we are not complete beings if we do not reach for something outside of ourselves. It is about being curious enough to focus on these things and remain open to learning what lies behind them – beneath them.

If you are seeking a truly meaningful and mindful understanding of life, it is essential that you learn to quiet your mind. It is then that you will be more open to receiving. It is then that the many thoughts that are swirling and churning around in your mind can come into focus in a meaningful way.

When you are hungry, you "feel the need to eat" - so you eat and that "need" goes away for a while....Your body let's you know! You do not have to put it on you "to do" list. This does not happen automatically for things like exercise or paying bills or starting each day in your secret garden. You have to make a conscience effort...an make new "pathways."

When you get a cut on your finger, it heals one cell at a time.  There is no way to rush it. You can hinder the healing process by letting it get dirt in it. You may be able to facilitate the healing process by putting Neosporin and/or a band aid on it. It is the same with the healing of our soul. We can’t rush it. But we can support and encourage it. We do this by maintaining our focus on God, by daily seeking the Joy, by sharing.

If you are seeking a truly meaningful and mindful understanding of life, it is essential that you learn to quiet your mind. It is then that you will be more open to receiving. It is then that the many thoughts that are swirling and churning around in your mind can come into focus in a meaningful way. Now is always the time to get up and keep going. It Is Always NOW!
