Meditation has always been a mystery to me. For years I wondered how just sitting quietly and living in your head could be helpful. That is becaue my head is not a quiet or restful place to be! The buddists call it Monkey Mind.
In the spring I started going to a weekly meditation group. The first few times I really struggled but I was assured that even meditation takes practice. Finally it started to become easier and I found that every time I went to the group it was like a re-set button on all the stress and tension in my body and brain. Now I can't even imagine life without mediation. We have had a break from the group because the woman who leads it has been away and ill. I now have to take the leap and do some independant mediataion and that scared me a bit - not sure why, but it does.
Through meditation I have also discovered Metaphysics. I have always know the word but less about the overall philosophy. I am still learning and there are so many things that I don't understand but it is interesting.
Lots of M words today!
My overall favorite M word is mom.
I also love the word making because I love making stuff.
