Friday treat

I’ve been slow on the blogging, mostly because I’ve hit a coasting speed and haven’t had anything earth-shattering come up, and also because life has been what it is, and has left little room for blogging.

However, I ran across this little gem of an article, and am feeling quite satisfied with my spiritual path.

The Power of Daily Meditation

I knew a guy a few years ago who had major stress and anxiety problems, and pretty much cured them through meditation. This article brings up some pretty familiar concepts, such as detachment from material desires, self-knowledge, and “being with” yourself. It’s interesting how these ideas are becoming more and more mainstream.

I also feel that the article does a really good job of articulating why finding my place, spiritually, is so important. I had a really rotten day on Tuesday, and I came home baffled at my “misfortune.” When I examined it a little closer, I realized that I had not spent time meditating or doing a daily puja (I’m trying to work out morning exercise and it’s throwing my schedule off) in several days. I made the time to do those things Wednesday morning, and have had a much better week since! I should know by now that my life runs more smoothly when I involve God in it (God’s always involved, but it helps me to remember that).

So enjoy the article,  the fruits of meditation, and what’s left of your Friday!

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
