The Journey Of A Christian Reaching For God With The Aid Of Buddha's Teachings

Today I completed my daily meditation at a decent time. I sat in a tradition meditation pose and closed my eyes. I sent my goodwill and positive intention to myself, the ones I love, to the ones I am indifferent toward, the ones I consider enemies, and to all conscious beings. Then, i began counting each slow inhale and exhale breath. Focusing on each breath, I allowed my thoughts to relax for 15 minutes. I felt much calmer.

I have noticed throughout my day that I am happier at work and trying to remain positive since I began meditating in the evening. I haven’t felt the need to watch television shows that I watched before. They just do not seem as important anymore. I don’t know if there is a correlation between my mood, outlook on life and watching television with meditating daily, but it is wonderful.

 

– Remember that happiness is in your hands –

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought.  If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him.  If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.” – Buddha (1)
