Meditation Top 10

winter08 051.JPGWhy meditate? Here are my top 10 reasons:

  1. Because it makes me happier
    overall. There’s nothing sophisticated about this, but if I had
    to pick one, this’d be it.

  2. Because it has transformed my
    asana practice. Without meditation, I strive to be in a state of
    love in practice. With meditation, I am in a state of love.

  3. Because I’m a more patient
    partner, mother, and friend on every single day that I meditate.
    Patience is a challenging gig some days.

  4. Because I’m homesick when I
    don’t meditate.

  5. Because there are moments of
    high-flying, intoxicating bliss during meditation (as long as I
    don’t go in expecting that).

  6. Because the world can be insane.
    So can I. It feels good to build a raft of sanity every morning.

  7. Because it’s humbling to meet my
    stubbornly busy head every morning while hoping to find a quiet
    head. This wouldn’t matter except that I sense it’s good for me
    to be humbled by something every day.

  8. Because my busy mind is stupefyingly
    exhausting.

  9. Because each day I like
    myself as I am is better than the days I spend trying to make up for
    what I’m not.

  10. Because I want everything yoga has
    to offer, inside and out.

I’ll bet you have your own compelling
reasons to meditate or to want to meditate. I’d love to hear them.

Thanks to yoga for what’s inside.
Thanks to you for the conversation,
