Especially in these turbulent times, when it seems nobody is immune from the fear, depression, and stress in the world, we can feel overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.
Even with a regular meditation time, then, it’s easy to still feel pulled off-center through the day as that precious energy gets leaked away.
I do the best I can in a small space, but sometimes have to move things
Gosh, no! Does that help?
Beautiful and spotlessly clean
A little lived in – if you don’t mind dishes in the sink, it’s fine
Well, it’s been a while since I saw the cat, but she’s there somewhere
I have a supportive structure and routine that keeps me focused and still leaves room for spontaneity
I try to get into a rhythm but life’s so busy and distracting it’s hard to be consistent
I’m a free spirit – don’t bog me down!
I try but it doesn’t always work
No way, I’m lucky if I can find a minute to breathe
Twice a week or more
Once a week
Once in a while
Didn’t know people did that!
Yes, I have a great community that inspires me
I know a few people but don’t see them often
I feel alone, and don’t have people around me who support my growth or ‘get it’
Wow, seems like all of it!
I try to keep focused but there are areas where I get really drained and frustrated
Never – I’m free and light as a bunny!
Completely – on the meditation cushion I feel half dead.
Somewhat – I’d like my energy and focus to be better
Very little – I feel in balance and full of energy for exploring life
Energizing, inspiring. Wow, what a great conversation!
We talked for 6 hours and didn’t say anything. I’m tired now.
This conversation left me bored, exhausted, anxious, depressed..(fill in your own blank!)
My mind is like a million chattering monkeys.
Some chatter and wandering – with moments of relief on a good day!
Like a clear blue sky with small, occasional clouds floating peacefully by!
