"Whisper words of wisdom...."

Fit in a Year - Week 9

By: Ann-Marie Giglio

Are you having trouble quieting your mind during your running or walking practice? Regarding meditation, an old Chinese Zen Master once said, "Some of you are taking me literally when I say, 'Don't think,' and you are making your minds like a rock. This is a cause of insentiency and an obstruction to the Way. When I say not to think, I mean that if you have a thought, think nothing of it."

You know.  Let it be.

And then simultaneously turn your attention to what you are doing. If you're running or walking, pay attention. If you are meditating quietly, tune in to your breathing and posture --- even if you're at your desk.

Sitting at work or walking a trail, we can't change the economy.  We can't change the laws.  We can't change our lovers.  We can't change the past.  Or the future.  But we can pay attention to the only thing we really have:  the present.  When you do this, when you really zero in on it, you open yourself up to everything.  Everything.

So next time you're out, keep your core centered, your intentions aligned --- and let it be.
