practicing presence. 21-day meditation challenge. @deepakchopra

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from Eckhart and Oprah, it’s the power of presence… or, acceptance, stillness, peace, awareness… Eckhart gives it a variety of names, hoping one will connect. All of them call for going within and meditation is our guide to getting there.

There are many ways to meditate. Eckhart says one deep breath can be a meditation. It doesn’t have to be complicated.

What’s most important is cultivating a practice. The more often you practice calming your mind, noticing your thoughts, not judging them, breathing into them, creating space around them, detaching your “self” from them… the more space you create in your life…the more good-ness will flow into that space… the casino spiele easier your life will become…

What’s really cool and absolutely perfect timing… is Deepak Chopra’s 21-day Meditation Challenge. It’s free, it only takes 15 minutes a day, and it’s a great way to try a meditation practice. (It started November 5th, but you can still join here.)

I know you’re crazy busy with the holidays…  but I’d like to challenge you to try it anyway.  Meditation will help you gracefully get through the holidays, feeling better than ever before. Just try it and see…

a-ha’s from A New Earth chapter 7 tele-chat


Eckhart kicks off Chapter 7, “Finding Who You Truly Are” with this …

 “Knowing yourself deeply has nothing to do with whatever ideas are floating around in your mind. Knowing yourself is to be rooted in Being, instead of lost in your mind.”

The a-ha for me was when he used a cross as a way to portray this. (It also made me think of the wall of crosses my friend has in her home.)

Eckhart says most of us live life along the horizontal – in the past, the future, focused on point a and point b. However, our true power comes when we incorporate a vertical dimension along that horizontal line.

When we firmly root ourselves in being, or acceptance, a depth occurs that’s missing in so many lives. Ego dissolves at the intersection of the horizontal and vertical. That’s where presence lives and we know that’s where the magic happens.

That’s also where you’ll find who you truly are. The truth is, no one can tell you who you are. It’s more of an essence to be experienced, not able to be explained.

We cultivate this essence in life’s little things, during traffic and sick days with your daughter.

It takes practice to cultivate this experience. Try it with life’s little things. You’re worth the effort.
