Meditation to Change Your Life


It is the beginning of a new year, with all the possibilities and wonder of a fresh start.  I approach these first days and weeks as opportunity of re-fresh my life.  Meditation helps me focus on what is important. Meditation recognizes this minute of time as the only minute; full and rich in its possibility.

I am reminded of four virtues:

1. Reverence and awe for all of God’s creation: Thankful each day for all we are given by God.  Thankful each day for God’s love. Today I will stop to notice the beauty of all life and all people God puts into my life.

2. Integrity and honesty of self:  Reaching into my true self to find the most pure expression of who I am.  Far beyond society’s desire for who I am, and beyond my thoughts of who I am. Today I will know with certainty that I am a Child of God, a spiritual being moving in my human body.

3. Kindness to others: From Mother Teresa:  We cannot do great things, but small things with great love. Today I will see someone who needs my smile and I will stop and give.

4. Service:  I can’t say this better than Maya:  “I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.”- Maya Angelou

To begin anew every day, to begin anew with each minute.  It is a new year. Chose to be in the light of God’s love and virtue of God’s power, one minute at a time.

Peace and Happy New Year!
