Friday Philosophy…Of Meditation and Daydreams

It’s been a hectic week. I’m sure that was obvious from my “radio silence” on here. Between appointments for the kiddos and music lessons and working and writing, well, it’s a blur. So I thought I would shift gears with my Friday philosophy, and share thoughts on clearing the mind and dreaming. You know: relaxation. 🙂

“Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It is a way of entering into the quiet that is already there – buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks each day.” ~ Deepak Chopra

“We tend to think of meditation in only one way. But life itself is a meditation.” ~ Raul Julia

“You get ideas from daydreaming…” ~ Neil Gaiman

“A daily dose of daydreaming heals the heart, soothes the soul, and strengthens the imagination.” ~ Richelle E. Goodrich

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about a poem my mom hung up in my first apartment, called “The Desiderata.” The first line just keeps running through my mind in the midst of all of the mayhem:

“Go quietly amidst the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence…”

The silence of 5:00 a.m., listening to the entire house sleep around me. 🙂

Blessings to you all, and never give up!
