Carve Out Some Time for Yourself

The word Meditation can describe dozens of different approaches to contemplation.
When I was growing up, Meditation suggested a person, usually a Buddhist monk, sitting for hours in the Lotus position, silent and unmoving.

Today I know that meditaion can be moving, as well as still; verbal or song-filled instead of silent; and is certainly not restricted to any religion or denomination.
There is no longer any idea that it takes hours or a major life ...

Mindful and Mellow

     The word "mindfulness" is a translation of the term sati, which Buddhist teachings apply to the development of self-knowledge and wisdom on the path towards enlightenment and freedom fro...

Breathing in Three Dimensions

Posted by Jo Leath on Wednesday, February 15, 2017, In : The Miracle of Physical Life 
Breathing in Three Dimensions

    Our breath is a constant companion, quite literally from birth to death. The automatic rhythm is very easy to forget. Breathing happens whether we think about it or not, and in fact when we think about it, we change the pattern.
We can pay attention and adjust our breathing deliberately, and when we do, we can impose (and expect) particular outcomes.
    Understanding how the constant and consistent flow of breath works, and what it does, can help us to be more ...

Flowing the Knowing

Flowing the Knowing

    Last week I attended an even where Les Brown was the keynote speaker.
    I first saw Les Brown on a television membership drive about thirty years ago, and have been a fan ever since. I was thrilled and excited when I found out about his appearance in a place I could easily access.
    Along with two friends, and a thousand other people, I sat through a parade of secondary speakers, some of whom were inspiring and motivating.  One or two others were selling systems and p...

Breath and Presence

Breath and Presence
 
    Tenzin Gyatso is the 14th person to hold the title Dalai Lama. His reign began on November 17th, 1950, 65 years ago this coming week. The world has changed profoundly during his lifetime. Political upheaval sent him into exile in 1959, and the state of global communication we currently enjoy has made him well known and recognized here in the west.
We live with access to the thoughts and writings of innumerable people we will never meet or hear in person: some of them be...

Inhale. Exhale. Shift.

Inhale. Exhale. Shift.
   
     The Shift. It is word that could describe a single, simple thing. The Shift, however, is not a single thing, and it is far from simple.
     Shift is not an easy concept and it is not an easy process to describe. Saying that all aspects of The Shift can be defined and described in a blog post is a little like suggesting that one can discuss Life and all of its facets.
     A complex and multidimensional notion, The Shift can be understood holistically only when we...

Who Has Seen the Breath?

Who Has Seen the Breath?

     January is a time of new beginnings and startings over. Some conversations might feature blank slates, do-overs, and second (or third) chances. New Year may offer the option to put the past away and start anew.
     For me, this is a wonderful time to go back to the very basics of being here in the world now, and I don’t need a New Year for a new beginning: every day triggers a new possible future. Each day starts with breath in our body, connecting us to the mir...

Breath and Love and Inspiration

     Chi is one name for is the "Life Force" of all living things, and it is representative of all energy within the universe.
     Chi is a concept of traditional Chinese culture that has taken a foothold in Western society. Most often it is translated as “air” or “breath”.
     In this context, breath is Spiritual energy, and part of everything that exists.
     Our physical body does not function unless we are breathing. Breath and life are intertwined i...

2014: the key to the door to your future.

     Happy New Year. I am celebrating the new vibration that affects us all.

Have a Miracle Day

Posted by Jo Leath on Wednesday, August 14, 2013, In : The Miracle of Physical Life 

     Albert Einstein is often quoted as saying “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
     The truth that I see is that everything is miracle, and if you have not yet connected to that truth, then you have found one of the intentions that you carried into Life.
     We live in a society that claims rationality and reason, and denies the existence of anything it cannot weigh and measure and dissect...
