Bless you Gentle Reader, how are you today and how’s life treating you and your family? A warm welcome to new readers and massive hugs to my regulars. I appreciate you taking time out of your full day to pause, reconnect and share in the yogic circle of light we are creating. Today’s post, Sitting in Silence, is a poem I’d like to share to reflect part of my journey and why I meditate.
Regular readers will know that for the longest while I’ve been quietly working on creating my first online meditation for beginners’ course- Breathe Freely. In a recent post, Prayer of Thanks – almost there, I shared my enthusiasm and excitement that Breathe Freely 7 Easy Meditations for Beginners to Help You Reduce Stress and Live a Healthier, Simpler and Happier Life” is getting closer and closer to being born. My mum has a saying ‘if something is worth doing its worth doing properly
Her words have guided me through this whole process and I pray the end result will reflect the love and dedication myself and my behind the scenes working buddies, my webmaster, Warren Samu and proof reader and editing documents Vicki Harris have also poured into this work of love.
Yoga Poem- Sitting In Silence
Meditation has played a major part in my personal healing. In a previous post “Tired and Overwhlemed…” I shared with you my story and how I got into meditation.
Today’s post is a poem, which expands upon this.
I wrote it a while back. My daughters were a lot younger and life was full-on. At times I felt like I was suffocating and struggled to breathe as I fought to bring order and calm into my life. Writing and meditating were the only times I felt I could be myself and let go …I am sure there have been times in your life when everything felt too much and you too wanted to be alone, maybe cry and scream out for help. If you are going through that now, take a moment to breathe, find a quiet spot and imagine yourself on your dream holiday island and savour Sitting In Silence
Sitting In Silence
Sometimes…I need to live with solitude
To be by myself, to live alone by myself
For it is in these quiet moments that I find myself
Reconnect with myself
During this time
I am who I am
A child of the universe
A creation from the Supreme Being
A Being with no beginning or end
Just a Soul.
A re-incarnated Soul
living in this time.
During solitude I experience what is necessary
What is needed to be aware of who I am and how I came to be.
So that is why I sit.
In silence, with solitude
Day in day out
