Daily meditation practice seems to be paying dividends. I use the instructions for meditations by Wayne Dyer to guide me for twenty minute sessions: this one in the morning and this one at bedtime where I nearly always fall asleep halfway through. I've found it easier to focus on the present moment through concentrating on sound rather than the breath as I've done in the past. My mind seems to wander less.
I've already mentioned that I now sleep through the night for the first time in years. That seems to be one benefit that's arisen from the practice. I can't think of anything else that might have effected the change . Life still throws the same intensity of challenge, especially at work which seems more intense than it's ever have been. Yet in spite of this I'm not so worrisome these days and thoughts about what I've not yet done don't haunt me at 2am. I try my best and it is not possible to do more.
The other thing I've noticed is a sense of plenty. For if I stay attuned to being in the present I have everything I need for that moment 99.999999% of the time! It is only by worrying about the future that I experience a sense of lack.
Have a wonderful weekend good people. And remember not to look to far ahead!
