Today's Positive Focus is all about meditation.
This subject is a very simple one. You don't have to be in a certain place, position or geographical location. It doesn't take a brain surgeon or a scholar to figure out what it means. Yet, taking time daily to meditate is the one of the most important spiritual investments one can make. The next important investment is allowing life to unfold before you and appreciating it as easily opens up without fear or worry.
Whatever you have in your life, be it good, bad or different, embrace it! Seek and find a solution to challenges. Set goals. Ask for help if you need it. All that you desire and require can be found through meditation and prayer. Life is not about getting everything we want, but wanting what we get! It's not striving to gain things, but learning to appreciate things, but most importantly, the people in our lives.
Meditating is an act of the will. It is self-discipline. It's a useful skill that will change the outcome of one's daily life. It's the art of being grateful, joyful and happy within. Inner happiness creates a stable, secure and well balanced life. This one simple act each day can work wonders. Five minutes a day or more is a good place to start. Meditation is a pause in the mad rush of 'busyness' that we inflict upon ourselves.
As we think about life today, take a few moments to meditate, show gratitude and be thankful for our many blessings. Even our failures benefit us. We will notice a pattern and design forming within as we meditate on uplifting thoughts. Nothing will be too great to handle when you meditate, pray and direct your thoughts to the source greater than ourselves. Look around, be apart of the ongoing process of living day by day.Start to meditate. Begin today.
Meditate on God and his love for each of us. This acknowledgement will keep everything in proper perspective. Please enjoy every moment. Live each day as if it were your last. Breathe in fresh air, fresh thoughts and a fresh new life! Meditate on what matters most. You will soon see hope and possibilities where there were none before.
Have a good day!
