Last night the meditation went quickly, and I attribute this to the fact that it was after midnight and I was exhausted from two companies reporting. I just kept repeating “now” and the thought chain was mostly absent.
Tonight I returned home to a big puddle and Fang stuck in the middle of it with her feet on a lower shelf. I took the dogs out and cleaned up the mess after. I wanted to watch the election coverage but did my meditation first. I settled Fang in a dog nest and put some treats in Fido’s bowl before settling down. I sat with my feet up and hands folded. My inclination is to close my eyes. Whereas last night I focused on “now” tonight I focused on breathing. But that allowed my mind to wander. I listened to Fang snoring. I tried to align my breathing with her snoring. But there was a backdrop of Fido chowing down. That led to thoughts about this blog. And so the struggle went. The problem was the breathing was deep almost naturally and didn’t require much thought.
That said, the 5 minutes seemed to fly by. I look forward to these brief moments of attempted peace.
NB Due to viewing of election coverage, workout didn’t happen.
