“The beauty of love is that it gives us the courage to take risks, to go beyond the safety net and enter territories unknown.” – Rumi
I started meditating years ago as a spiritual practice and to reduce stress. Truth be told, like many of us, I spent my days vacillating between thinking about the next goal I needed to accomplish or ruminating on some past event. One of the first experiences of my daily practice was present moment awareness. Sounds simple, but tuning in and staying focused and centered in the present expanded my creativity and consciousness. Living consciously helped me cut through the unimportant and hooked me into a deeper connection with my heart, with love, beauty, and what really matters in life.
This week’s mantra: “In the center of love, I exist”
