To meditate, emptying thought entirely, but especially wishes, fears, and opinions, is my goal.  If I give my energy to the universe in this way, the universe prospers.  In these times, the effort to focus seems almost impossible, but I trust it nonetheless, and continue the attempt.  It helps to keep at bay the bipolar nature of news media, which uses my head as nothing so much as a racquet ball!

Concurrently, taking care of the creatures, the life, in my immediate surroundings is helpful.  Feeding birds, tending gardens, simply being in nature, whether in a park or one’s yard, is calming.

Namaste, Joan
