The few days before and after a New Moon are a time for retreat. It is a time for us to retreat from the action of life and take the time to listen. So what better and simpler way than to listen to the sound of our own breath. Hidden within our breath is the most beautiful Mantra it is not one that we need vocalise as it is ever present.ૐ
As we breathe in Ham
As we breathe out So
But do not take my word for it, practise. Real meditation comes to those who practise. To discover the meaning in the experience requires vigor, vitality (love of life) and endurance.
Experience is not what happens to you;
it is what you do with what happens to you.
We all have our own personal stories, feeling fulfilled and peaceful in the midst of pain and difficulty requires creativity, courage and countenance. It is so much easier to be tragic rather than hopeful; it can seem to be much easier to give up trying and live without God. Discouragement and negativity simply require less effort and energy than do encouragement and faith. The creative process is not necessarily rapid, the creative path not necessarily easy, but creativity is the only way to enhance one’s experience. It is all our hard work that connects creativity to the cardinal virtue of fortitude.
Never Give UP
Never let anyone Fall
