As part of my theme this month, the importance of taking time to be in the Presence, as desccribed in the June edition of the Ah-Man Newsletter, I want to share with you the following exercise.
First, I ask you to list all the things that are keeping you from meditating every morning, e.g., work, kids, school, husband, wife, car repair, airport, shopping, headache, email, phone call, meeting, sleep, iron my clothes, breakfast, traffic, etc.
Now ask yourself a question. Will any of those things bring you eternal happiness? Or Absolute Truth? Or inner fulfillment?
Yes, all of those things are important. We each have responsibilities and it’s our duty to meet them. But our first duty is to take care of ourselves…spiritually. When we have done that, everything else will fall in line.
