A mind prison or Meditation

‘Two men looked through prison bars, one saw mud and one saw stars.”

So often my teacher would quote this in class. I now use it before I teach a meditation class.

We are born to this magnificent Earth. We take on the forms of matter and exist in time and space. These are our prison and we can be ruled by them. Caught up in the web of time. Or do you find trouble with being in the right space/place in the right time.

The first step is awareness, What is imprisoning you now.?

Which way is your mind being pulled? For the practise of awareness just come back to this breath moment. Watch the mind. Is it demanding you rush here and there?What thoughts are you creating that imprison you right now?

Some times we just need to step outside and see the stars. But if you cannot do that.

Caught in traffic or the office use your awareness, watch the thoughts and come back to the breath.

Namaste

About lorraine

After a nasty fall from my bicycle, coming home from high school, I began suffering from migraines. After a term of Chiropractic adjustments, which helped but did not entirely stop the migraine headaches, my parents in desperation sent me to yoga classes, The only available evening class in our area was filled with pregnant women. I felt out of place as a shy teenager, but persevered. adjustment,breathing, meditation and yoga proved the only therapy that bought relief from the headaches. Feeling well I got on with life, married moved from my home town and forgot the daily yoga practices and there benefits. Coming back to Yoga and meditation helped me manage during the time of my father's Cancer. and death. Later when my Husband became ill the natural decision was to qualify as a Yoga, meditation teacher to further assist others through the difficult times of illness and recovery or death. I have now been benefiting from the science and art of Yoga, Meditation for well over twenty five years.
