Relaxing into the Ordinary Magic of Now
Through the practice of mindfulness, we learn that much of our time is spent in being anywhere but here and anytime but now. We are trapped in a cycle of searching for a different now, a better now. Meditation helps us bring our mind and body together “on the same page.” We realize that we already have everything we need to relax and enjoy life, right in the palm of our hand. We all possess the confidence and resiliency to accommodate any situation that we face with wisdom and clarity. As we cultivate our practice of meditation, we learn to make friends with our mind, and it becomes a powerful ally instead of a constant nuisance.
