"Looking for Love"- art journal page, April 2009
So last night, I had meditation class. We were 5 women plus our magnificent guide, Deb.
Have you ever felt the power of what 6 people all connected on one task in the present moment can have ? It is pretty awesome when you think about it.
When I first started meditation, I was a little worried that it was going to be super spiritual, a little too "granola" for me.
Instead I have found a place where I am so present in the moment and in the company of people who are all looking for the same moments of real living that I am.
I don't really "know" these women, except for Deb, who I have shared a little more time with, and yet by sitting in a circle with them, focusing on our breathing, and focusing on putting love out into the world, I feel such a sense of connection to them.
"We are all connected to everyone and everything in the universe." was the post Amanda shared on kind over matter this morning.
I am so feeling that today.
I am so grateful for that today.
Look for love. You won't have to look very far.
"Thank you for being here, for everything tonight, as always." said the Teacher to her at the end of class as people were slowly leaving the room.
"I missed you." she replied, after having missed two weeks of class.
"I missed you, too." said the Teacher with a smile.
"Can I hug you ?" she asked, feeling kind of like a little child, but with her heart full of wanting to make that connection.
"Of course !" said the Teacher, genuinely joyful.
The hug, tight and pure ! "I love this Lady!" she said to the room. "I love this Lady too!" said the Teacher, making their two hearts touch even more closely.
She felt like she let go too soon. She won't do that next time.
Maybe you can look for ways to strengthen those connections even a little more today. I know I will be.
Big hugs and Blogland Love to you, my beautiful Friends.
