What is your aim? What is the truth for you? I recently started a five week meditation intensive and the teacher warned that we may feel susceptible to old bad habits because when we start to align with our truth and develop healthy habits there is always the little voice of self sabotage. Man was I feeling it this weekend. I was craving sweets non stop, wanting to binge watch tv instead of practicing or meditating... and i kept wanting other small things that I have felt to be misaligned with where I want to go. So this morning I sat, and tried to meditate, and tried and tried and just kept fidgeting. So I made my meditation one of writing. I opened up my journal and asked myself those two questions; then let it flow. I wrote of the first sensation of putting chocolate in my mouth and the gratification in that moment but of the stomachs ache that followed eating too much. I wrote and wrote until my mind quieted and I knew what my next steps were. It's not about always being perfect, on point, in balance, it's about recognizing when you aren't and asking why until you feel resolution. My aim for the next two months is to integrate more purity and more quiet. What is yours?
