Meditation changes how I see the world. My vision becomes more accurate and uplifting when I meditate.
I slow down. I pay attention to things that I previously overlooked. I see squirrels playing in the trees and clouds floating in the sky. I notice when my son brings back the car with a full tank of gas.
Everything comes into sharper focus. I feel less distracted. It is easier to concentrate on positive thoughts during meditation.
I become more compassionate. I empathize with a coworker who arrives late for a meeting because they got stuck in traffic. I forgive myself for forgetting to pick up the dry cleaning.
I have a greater sense of peace when meditating. I readily adapt to changes. I feel confident that I can handle whatever happens. I am able to put some distance between myself and my emotions. I accept my fears and choose my actions carefully.
Sometimes, I just take a brief pause to still my mind. A few minutes of deep breathing while brushing my teeth or standing in line at the supermarket can be helpful. I release minor tensions. I remember to feel loving and thankful.
Throughout the day, I reflect on the insights I discover during meditation. They guide me as I wash the dishes or talk with my boss.
Today, I rely on meditation to enhance my vision. My world appears more beautiful and meaningful.
