Meditation is a thing. I was walking through New York a while back, and I passed a transcendental meditation studio. I believe there may have been a picture of Oprah in the window or something. Maybe, maybe not….I’m not sure how meditation has grown to become so chic. I do know that it is an effective form of loving one self in what is a crazy, chaotic world. Have you ever read the book Siddhartha? It’s a classic, typically provided to high school students. It was when I was in high school. Sid was the Buddhist Zen master seeking Nirvana. Basically, Nirvana is peace. Isn’t that something for which we are all looking?
Now, try to hold back your eye roll or pardon my ASSumption, but I’m a Christian. I may not have some traditional Christian views, but for me Jesus is, “the way the truth and the life.” There’s a popular song that has a lyric that says, “You are God, and that’s just the way it is.” That’s pretty much my view. I share that part of myself, because words are important. They can breakdown and shatter relationships or they can build them up. Typically, they do both.
Anyway, meditation is important. I encourage you to look into it. While you are at it, look into focused prayer. I like it the best, and I believe it may be more the transformative choice.
Speaking of healing, I was in a car accident a few years ago. Both legs were broken, and initially there was uncertainty about my walking again. Yoga is one of the reasons why I am walking as well as I am. Check it out.

A while back, I was at an epilepsy symposium. It was interesting. I was surprised at how basic much of the information provided seemed to be given that there were people there getting continuing education credits if I remember correctly. I am grateful there are people that are interested in learning more about epilepsy. April is mental health awareness month apparently, and given the stigma attached to epilepsy there are those that often consider epilepsy a mental illness. I have a different, more positive perspective on the matter. Happy Cinco de Mayo! Drink responsibly 🙂

Does it make you feel powerful to know something that someone else doesn’t know? Sometimes, it’s nice to be in the know. It can make you feel important, valued. That used to be a source of pride for me. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes secrets are meant to be kept between people and there is a “time and place for everything under the sun,” as we are taught. Yet, when it becomes a pupped-out chest sort of pride swilling menagerie….something has gone afoul.
I’m fond of that scene in Men in Black where K is recruiting J and K says something to the effect of people are foolish, panicky, and unpredictable. That’s not an exact quote. He goes on to say that, “a person is smart.” Isn’t that the truth? (I mutter with a sigh and somewhat sarcastically too 🙂
I know I can be foolish. I know I panic from time to time. I know I can be unpredictable, but that is part of what makes humanity wonderful, bearable, and embraceable. Don’t you think?
Nobody is perfect.
