Mental Workout of the Day:
Today’s workout will be contemplation. This exercise can be akin to meditation in the process and the end result, however your mind will be much more active than in quiet meditation. Set a timer for 10-15 minutes and find a comfortable sitting or lying position. Close your eyes and consider a possible query you have been contemplating as of late. Bring this to the forefront of your mind and begin to look at this from a different perspective. Ask yourself why you are contemplating this. Ask yourself why this affects your life. Ask yourself why this is important to you. After you have done this, you can then ask if you can do something about this query. Is it possible to change what you are contemplating? If you are just contemplating the vastness of the universe, you can ask yourself, “Why is the brilliance of the universe important to me?” When you have found that answer, ask yourself if it is truly important to your life. If it happens to be a discrepancy with a lover, friend, or acquaintance, do the same process. Just ask yourself these simple questions and see if they can’t shift your perspective if that is what you are searching for.
“Infinite Spirit, thank you for the unbounded blessings you have given me. Thank you for the gift of breath, of sight, of speech, of sound. Thank you for the gift of eternal love, but most of all for the ability to see you as All that I experience.”
