QUIET TIME................................





~~Quiet Time~~

Still the mind
Slow your breath

Breath in
Breath out

So Simple
So difficult

Mind always racing
Soft breath
Hard breath

Breath in
Breath out

So simple
So difficult

~~

  5. Love the poem Jo
    and that picture is stunning.

    I especially love that Buddha lamp.

    Meditation to quiet our storm.
    I often need a reminder to quiet
    the mind.

    Of course I just woke up on
    my lazy boy chair, yawn, that
    was totally unintentional.

    lol

    hugs and blessings

  7. I too love the photo Jo...

    I don't force my meditations,
    I just 'am' with it.
    Letting thoughts come and go
    at will until I am calm and
    at peace...then it is quiet
    and still. Breathing in
    and breathing out...much
    like taking a power nap,
    He He He well, as Sharon
    describes above.

    May the Blessing of the
    Morning Star light your
    way this day...
