Why Think?

Thoughts are always of the past, they can never describe the present. The very act of describing takes thought and removes us from the present. –  www.NamasteNow.com

thoughts

Why think all the time? Why not stay in the present more often?

What Is True Meditation

Meditation is a universal ‘Yes’ to everything.Francis Lucille

true meditation

Sit. Accept everything as it is. If thoughts come, let them come, and then go. Just sit. Feel something? Just accept it. Just sit and say ‘Yes’ to everything. Keep sitting. Feel peace? Experience it. Sit. This is meditation. Standing now? That’s fine, continue accepting everything as it is. That’s meditation.

affirmations

Today I AM accepting all, as is, I AM.
