Prequel to Real Happiness 2012 Challenge

It’s such an honor to be a part of the meditation challenge again this year. When it was over at the end of February last year, I was reminded of when I was a child and felt that mixture of melancholy and excitement when school ended for summer break. I missed the routine and comfort of knowing I had a place to share my experience on the cushion while realizing it was time to take off the training wheels and give it a spin on my own.

 I haven’t been the ‘best’ student, often neglecting my practice out of pure laziness. (There’s really no excuse not to make the time for myself.)   But I’ve never lost sight of how profound the experience of meditating can be and how it helps to reinforce the beauty of simplicity and presence.

 I’m ready. Let’s go.

  1. As I read the post, I had to admit to myself that I too have not meditated regularly, and its time
    to renew my practice.
    A noted avatar in India, Bhagawan Nityananda said “The heart is the hub of all sacred places.
    Go there and roam.” So I’ll renew my practice, and enjoy roaming in the heart.
    Thanks for post.
