TAPPING INTO THE SOURCE

Yogi-posture, ramrod straight,

legs crossed in yin-yang shape.

Hands held gently at rest on the knees,

while fingers posed in mudras

help to focus energies.

Eyes closed softly,

attention on the breath,

allowing it freely to tap into the source.

Follow the breath,

it will show you the way,

the truth lies within you

beyond this illusory play.

  4. Thank you, Soulbro Dom. I’m glad you liked it. Sorry didn’t get to talk again tonight–my brother called from New York–he’s there for an extended time doing some contracting work and we ended up talking until 10:30PM. I’ll try tomorrow again to get in touch.
    Love you–

    Meditating to the miraculous illusion of the spheres
    Meandering between illusory synapses
    Moseying in the downward spiral
    Making magic on key
    Meet the music
    Mute me

    You make meditation sound so easy! I’ve tried and end up crying. And then I’m confused because I don’t know if I should be crying lol.

    • Marisol4you, you know meditation can bring up all kinds of emotions and I have cried plenty of times during meditation–let it flow! It will calm down–just keep going back to the breath between sobs!

      Sounds easy to just focus on the breath doesn’t it–but watch the mind take your concentration away over and over again–just keep bringing it back–that’s the process. Never beat yourself up that you’re not able to do it. Patience–it will happen–little by little.
