I had a great time hearing about my followers and friends adventure in completing. Together we can make a difference. Even though Earth Day has past, it does not mean that we should stop caring for our environment. I still plan to clean the area around my apartment from time to time to maintain the cleanliness of my home.
So what comes next? What will the May’s challenge be? This month, I am going to challenge myself, but you are more than welcome to participate, to meditate every day for 30 days straight for at least 10 minutes a session. Everyday in May, I am going to post a quote from Buddha and/or Jesus in order to help motivate myself. Since I am untrained in meditation, I am going to use a guided chakra meditation. Chakras are not Buddhist, however the idea of focusing on specific body parts to increase meditations are Buddhist in nature. I am hoping that within time, I will be able to change and learn more about meditation so that I can use other forms of meditation including true Theravada meditation, which is sitting in silence.
May you all find the courage, patience, and understanding to join me in my journey to increase our mindfulness, concentration, tranquility, and insight. If you are a Christian, increasing your mindfulness, concentration, tranquility, and insight can help you to gain a better understanding of God and yourself. If you practice another religion or do not practice at all, meditation can also aid you in decreasing anxiety and stress in this highly stressful world. So join me in the month of May for May Meditation.
