I’m not a big fan of huff post but this article is well worth the read.  It shares simply that the benefits of meditation can be derived in other ways.  In other words, you don’t have to sit in the lotus position to meditate – and I completely agree. Kudos, Carl Phillips (@FrictionlessLiv)

I’m a big proponent of connecting with nature.   “Look deep into nature and you will understand everything better” – Einstein.

Wherever you are, whatever you are doing – be in that present moment.  Let the rest of the world disappear.  Simply be in that present moment.  There is only now.  Let that moment be the only thing.

Despite all the chaos that is going on all over the world, despite the despair you may be feeling, helplessness, hopelessness, frustration, fear or anger – be in the moment.  Just now.  In the midst of the chaos, this is a way to find a sense of calm and peace.  Even if it is just for that moment. For as long as the moment lasts.

Someone asked a Zen Master, “How do you practice Zen?”
The master said, “When you are hungry, eat; when you are tired, sleep.”
“Isn’t that what everyone does anyway?”
The master replied, “No, No. Most people entertain a thousand desires when they eat and scheme over a thousand plans when they sleep.”
