Good morning! How are you? I hope you’re feeling good, because I’ve been feeling less stressed out about little things.
Since Monday, I have incorporated something peaceful into my morning routine- mediation. I’ve done yoga or any of that type of stuff, but I’ve always been intrigued by ways of clearing one’s head and relaxing the body.
I sat down on my floor crossed legged, shut my eyes, and took my mind off all negative emotions and thoughts. To help set the tone, I found some relaxation music on YouTube and let it echo throughout the room.
For about ten minutes I was inhaling and exhaling slowly. In my head I visualized being in calm area. My imaginary getaway was a vast field with green grass. The fan in my bedroom was now the the wind whistling through that greenery. As I sat in the grass, listening also to the harmony of birds and insects, I gazed at the sunset sky, looking like a peach with its light orange and light pink glow.
After serenity, I pulled myself up from the carpet, saying to myself, “Ready to get the day started.” For the rest of the day, I experienced no stress or frustration whatsoever. Even when a small plate fell to the ground at work, I didn’t get worked up about it or scold myself like I usually do over small things such as that. Instead, I took a few breathes in and out, reached for the nearest broom and dustpan, swept up the shards and big pieces from the floor, and went about my work as if nothing happened.
That same day around 1 pm, me; and all of staff and faculty at my job site went outside to behold the solar eclipse everyone had been gossiping about. It was such a beautiful sight to look upon. God never ceases to amaze me with all his wonders and miracles. Seeing the glowing outline of the sun behind the moon made the phenomena look like a human eye- the moon a pupil and the sunlight a sclera.
This is just my imagination going wild, but wouldn’t it be remarkable if a solar eclipse was actually God making one of eyes visible for a short time, letting us know that He sees us and that we should take comfort knowing that despite all the garbage we go through that He is looking out for us, even when we don’t want Him to?
What did you think of the eclipse?
Are any of you into meditating?
Have a good day and God Bless.
