Day 71: Zen moment

19 Mar

We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.

Dalai Lama

Truer words were never spoken.  All the stress in our daily lives…money, time, people…all of it can be impossible to deal with without a calm and quiet mind.  When stuff goes wrong, I take a zen moment.

Normally, my zen moments consist of deep breathing and quiet meditation.  Sometimes there’s music involved.  Sometimes there’s a hot bath.  Sometimes I even follow guided meditation programs.  It may sound silly to those who haven’t tried it, but a few minutes of silence works wonders.

Today’s giggle is the beginning of some portable zen.  Basically, I decoupaged a plastic makeup container.  Tomorrow, I’ll fill it with things to help me meditate on the go.

I hope I can find some things to fit inside.  I think this will really come in handy.
