… and when you’re ready

I have loved hearing that phrase in previous guided meditations from Sharon. At the end of the session, Sharon says, “And when you’re ready, open your eyes…” I never really feel like opening my eyes, but this year I hope I’m ready.

This year I am hoping to make sitting a more regular, steady part of my daily habit, reclaiming some time back from screens and pressure.

It was reassuring to return to the breath. While Sharon introduced the session I found myself stretching — things are creakier and stiffer than they used to be — and remembering previous attempts to hold off distraction. It was a comfort to start into the breath, though new worries crept in to keep me company this time. It’s just one breath, indeed, and the whole world is in that breath.


May all beings be happy ♡
