I recently started to do my 3T’s
that is Two Times Ten. I meditate twice a day for ten minutes. I made it ten, because it seamed doable, especially in the morning, sometimes those are tough to make space for time. But I found that those ten minutes really help my day. In the morning it helps to put mind mind at ease. My days can be pact with things I need to do, and instead, I just start panicking. And at the end of the day I beat myself up for not getting it done. Instead, being in more centered state of awareness, I pick my priorities, and the rest will be just the icing on the cake, because there really is only so much time in the day, and it should not be just about work and things we “have” to do, but about what we want to do and enjoy it, and then people we have time to interact with, because that is what life is all about.
And we have to pause and look at the trees,
Listen to a Bird,
Smile at someone,
Listen to someone,
Accept an invitation,
Hum to a song,
Write a poem,
Play with a pet
Actually look at you backyard and what is in it
Take a walk and look around
Let someone go in front of you, in traffic
Call a friend
And as I was meditating, I thought of a flower, Oleander. I thought it was a bit odd, because she was not on my mind before, and so I had to paint her. I found out that it was a poisonous flower, but beautiful never the less. It reminded me of a beauty that draws you in, and then hurts. That happens, and I wondered, why she was called to me now, a message from beyond? That is probably all the images that come to me are, they come, leave a mark, and then they pass. They become pages in my journals, images on my canvases, and then I can let them go. Painting to me is somewhat like a meditation.
