Jim Haug, a friend, wrote a wonderful overview of meditation. (Enjoy it here.)
There’s a bit in it about finding whatever space you can to let yourself subside, even if it’s in a restroom.
There are nooks and crannies and crevices even in a busy day where you can alight for just a moment to renew. Be it in a car, a bathroom, a stairwell, around a corner, in a little used area, there’s always somewhere you can duck into for that moment of renewal.
What can you do in a minute or so?
- Breathe, languorously
- Ask a question of yourself — of your Self! — about something of importance
- Daydream — it’s healthy, it’s good, it’s freeing, it’s energizing, it’s the fount of creative living
I’ve saved the world —
my little world —
more than once from a bathroom.
