You are not your thoughts. Our thoughts take us away from being here now. If I am thinking about the past, or worried about the future, I am a prisoner of my thoughts.

The above quote is is from a post titled Mindfulness Meditation on my friend brightfeather’s blog, this time ~ this space. I do not meditate enough and need to make it a more integral part of my life. Regular meditation helps quiet the physical-mind chatter which in turn allows for a stronger connection with who we really are, and makes for more meaningful journeys. In general, it improves all aspects of our lives.
