Summer Sun Meditation

Thursday, July 6th, 2017

Sit quietly…with your spine straight…breathe slowly in and out through your nose. Allow the exhale breath to last a little longer. Keep breathing until your whole body relaxes. Breathe through each part of your body. Notice what area of your body needs more attention and send your breath there.

Allow an image of the sun to come into your awareness. Allow whatever color of the sun come to you that feels really good. Sense its presence just above you. Invite the rays of the sun to come into you. Allow the sunlight to brighten every thought and feeling. As you breathe in, sense the warmth of the sun and as you breathe out, sense the light of the sun. Bathe in the sun.

Connect with your own sun – the light that is you. Imagine sending this light out to someone you love so they can also bathe in the light. Spend some time bathing in the sun. When you are ready, slowly let the imagine of the sun go. The light is always there within, ready to shine. Bathe in the light of you in all ways.

Bring the light into your heart. Know that the light is always available, always there, and always ready to be shared with those around you.

Welcome Home. Welcome to your light.

Happy Summer!

Quiet Places Within

Friday, May 26th, 2017

I notice the sky. I see fully the sunlight that bounces off the brick buildings.

I notice the clouds. I take in the shapes that fill the limitless view above me.

I notice the birds. I feel the expansive wings that encircle my very beingness.

I notice the trees. I feel the arms of the universe surround me.

I notice that beauty encircles me, light fills me, and nature supports me.

I live in a world of sounds that teach me to be alive and present.

Less Grit. More Love.

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

As I begin a Mindful in May Meditation Program, I am reminded how my view of meditation changes everything. I am looking forward to sitting – just sitting. I am looking forward to chanting. I am looking forward to listening and being. For a while, my meditation practice was feeling like a chore to be done rather than a practice to be experienced. From that perspective, it was easy to skip the meditation “chore” and come up with excuses. It is humbling to go back to the meditation cushion. It reminds me that I am always the student and the teacher.

Life isn’t about gritting through it. It’s about the fullness of every experience. When we grit through our meditation or any spiritual practice, we lose out on experiencing the deeper connections that reside within us. We cheat ourselves on creating deeper connections with others.

What are you gritting through? Are you willing to let go of the grit and open to more love?

Less grit. More Love.

Go ahead – go back to your daily practice and experience the delight of deeper connections.

Bridging Our Inhale and Exhale

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

Breathe gently in and out.

Allow the exhale to be a little longer than the inhale.

Release any tension, worry, or anxiety with each out breath.

Allow light in any form to arrive with each in breath.

Notice how your body feels while breathing the full inhalation and exhalation.

Just notice. Be aware. Be the inner note-taker.

Welcome all the thoughts. Know the exhale will take them.

Greet the critic and the judge. Embrace them.

Breathe in and out slower and deeper.

Relax into the fullness of the inhale and exhale.

Breathe all the way down to your feet. This breath will anchor you.

Breathe all the way up to the top of your head (your crown chakra). This breath will open you to your divine connection.

Take a fuller breath. Tune into the wisdom of your heart-center.

With each breath, bridge your heart and mind.

Be the observer, the anchor, the wisdom, and the breath.

Your breath takes you where you need to be ─ right here in this moment.

Welcome home.

Be Audacious

Saturday, February 4th, 2017

audaciousWhen we connect to peace and happiness, we can discover Universal Love and Universal Compassion. We need to make the decision to go there – go to what brings us peace and happiness.

Take a few moments, and just let go and take some time to focus on what generates joy in our life. Notice that when we focus on joy, peace arises naturally. As my Buddhist teacher, Kadam Morten says, “Peace is the nature of our mind. When we pay attention to peace, it expands.” My teacher will often recommend that we hang out with our peaceful mind.

Personally, when I sit in meditation, I am reminded of my peaceful nature or my Buddha-nature. I can let go of delusions – of self-grasping and ignorance. When I open my eyes, the work of remembering that peace within continues and I must make the decision to go to the peaceful places within myself. As Kadam Morten says, “I can have a heart pervaded by peace, joy, and compassion.” He challenges us to wish for enlightenment for all loving beings without exception (bodhichitta – enlightened mind). It is a practice I am working on daily.

As Kadam Morten often says, “It’s audacious to identify with your Buddha-nature.” The idea of striving for enlightenment for the benefit of all as a way of being can feel too much. So, we start with ourselves. We carry love in our hearts as a way of being. The sun doesn’t think about radiating light – it just does it. We don’t have to think about radiating light – we can just be light. We can transform situations into peace and fuel the path to enlightenment.

We can be audacious and identify with our Buddha-nature.

Meditation on Relaxation

Thursday, December 8th, 2016

Spend a few minutes enjoying meditating on relaxation. Notice what happens when you take time to really breathe in and breathe out. Spend five minutes tuning into your mind and body – relaxing and welcoming more inner wisdom. Let go of the “busyness” that normally runs your life and make time for you. From that place, you can give more fully and with more attention. When you let go, you make space for more joy, more peace, more compassion, and more love to enter. Enjoy this meditation with Mary Anne Flanagan, Toning the OM. This was filmed at Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx.
