Slowing Down

One week has gone by on my month of R&R and the first layer of static and tension has gone. I’ve sat in silence enough now that all noise seems "louder" than it used to. There is more space between my thoughts. I’ve stopped "rushing."

An added bonus is my family members (some have four legs) are responding to the quieter me with more love and attention. My dog seems to enjoy sitting to meditate now. (Before it was only Mikee the cat.) The horses enjoy letting me hug them. Tim and I laugh more. Life is good and getting better.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
