"Although I speak from my own experience, I feel that no one has the right to impose his or her beliefs on another person. I will not propose to you that my way is best. The decision is up to you. If you find some point which may be suitable for you, then you can carry out experiments for yourself. If you find that it is off no use, then you can discard it." Dalai Lama...

calm and relaxed!!

I was surprised by this as I have not thought of myself as a morning person in a long time.I have had ME for so many years that I have lost the natural rhythm of my body and getting up has become the hardest thing to do.Sleep has ruled my life for so long, lack of it and need for it have been constant companions.

I have always preferred the mornings, I love the emerging light and the stillness, it has a different feeling to the night,with the promise of the new day full of possibilities.I enjoy being on my own with a cup of tea and looking out over the garden, thoughts of the day to come and what to fill it with.

Thinking of being calm and relaxed also reminded me that in the hustle and bustle of our day I have no time to meditate.If I got up earlier I could spend 10 Min's in the quiet of the morning.This is going to involve some very positive thinking to get out of a nice warm bed on a cold winter morning!!!

In looking for the positive in my older son's going to school now, one is the early morning. I've taken to keeping my camera with me as i drop him off because the morning sunrise light is so lovely. And it feels cozy to be up when many others aren't, the world seems so quiet and crisp. I love enjoying a cup of tea and looking over my garden too - that's one of my favorite parts of spring/summer!
