DancingMom BS: How do you meditate? (27) RE: BS: How do you meditate? 02 Dec 01

Depends on what I wish to accomplish at the moment; to calm myself, to give thanks, or to seek out an answer to a problem. Focusing on the breath, or a word or phrase or line of music to repeat helps me avoid mind wandering. With eyes closed I focus my inner vision at a spot sort of between my eyebrows and and create an image or a sound there. Sometimes I just think about someone I love or something that brings me joy. I do a walking meditation (eyes open!) too, and as described above by the others so beautifully, walking in a favorite spot in the woods, on the beach, or in the yard is wonderful. I take in as much as I can through my senses; I see, hear, taste, smell, and feel as much as I can and give thanks for it. Thanks for letting us know about the Harrison Family's wishes. I would love to somehow give something back to George, who gave me so much. Or pass it on. Sharon
