Meditate not because you’ll feel holy, but so you’ll know that there’s no difference between the times that you sit and the times you don’t.
Zen-Denial Levin

As we contact this Higher Principle of our own lives-which is Perfect and Complete, needing nothing, wanting nothing, knowing everything, being happy and satisfied-and as we daily meditate upon this Indwelling God, we shall acquire a greater mental equivalent. — The Science of Mind



Most of us know meditation is beneficial to our wellbeing; it centers us to move though the day, connected to our source. Sometimes there is a “yes but” feeling that we’ve missed the mark, not doing it correctly.

Enjoy the process of meditation, let go of being perfect. Meditation means be in the moment, “be here now”. Yes… there are times when we meditate and we find ourselves drifting. Or our mental gymnastics seem to be running a marathon. Be with everything that is showing up. Gently call yourself back to center. Give up your idea of what a perfect meditation should look like or feel like.

This moment is perfect. Call yourself back to a gentle restful place. Give up preconceived notions of how or what meditation needs to be today. Remember the luscious feeling of Spirit. However we show up is just perfect. Give yourself permission to go deeper into source. Today we are opening to who we are in the moment. Today our meditation is the best it can be. We’ll explore tomorrow’s mediation when it arrives

Today in meditation I breathe as I return to the quiet. I breathe and watch as my breath follows the pathway to my source. I follow my breath to my center… I love the process of connecting with Spirit… I return to peace.
