Christmas - Day 8

"Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It's a way of entering into the quiet that's already there—buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day. ~ Deepak Chopra".

I came across this quote today and it is so so true. Anyone who is new to meditating will always ask "How do I make my mind go blank?" I always say don't be concerned with that, just let your thoughts visit and then let them leave. If you are having the thought, you are having it for a reason. I really love to meditate - it always relaxes me but sometimes it takes me to places and feelings I really don't want to return from. I really haven't been indulging as much as I should so tomorrow I am going to enrol in a regular meditation class and do some indulging.
Now my Christmas decoration I am going to share with you tonight are my "Table Top Christmas Trees" made out of steel pot scrubbers. You just get a heap of the cheapest steel pot scrubbers and pull them over polystyrene cones. I got the idea from a show called "B' Original" on TV. I really like them, they are a great rustic decoration to put out on my back porch.
