One of the tools that I use to help keep me centered is meditation.
I meditate 3 days out of the week for 20 minutes. I usually meditate with soothing music playing and in a dark room. This helps me relax my mind after such a busy day which usually starts at 6:30am. Admittedly it is hard sometimes and it takes bit longer for me to relax into it. When those times happen I spend the first few moments just focusing on my breathing. I take deliberate breaths in and out until I feel my body relaxing and my mind opening up.
Master’s constant teaching for me is to learn how to just be. Be where I am at the moment and nothing more. I have the tendency to be all over the place and many days in the future. It has taken me sometime to really appreciate the times that I have for meditation because I kept thinking that my time could be better spent doing many of the hundred other things that I had to do.
What I realized though was that meditation actually helped me be more focused. Instead of running around doing many thing all at once I do one thing at a time giving my full time and attention to the task as needed.
Importantly when I meditate it reminds that I am doing this at my Master’s command. Each time I kneel in position I am submitting my will to my Master’s will.
For me, my submission to Master is one step at a time. I become my Master’s slave always and in all ways.
