Today’s meditation brought me to a quiet calmness. I was able to envision “our sky” which was surreal, quiet, enveloping. Then clouds came, those distractions, thoughts of the days activities and sounds of my grandson, & the dogs.... They for the moment were clouds passing. Fleeting thoughts.... some huge cumulus clouds, others thin and wispy cirrus. The speed at which they passed was what made it so surreal. I will take time through my day, today, and allow calmness, through this meditative vision to keep me focused on my tasks at hand and to let those disruptive thoughts and sounds pass quickly, not allowing myself to perseverate to long, allowing me to stay calm. Yet on those tasks and thoughts that need the time, allowing the cloud to stay close, comforting, enabling me to finish my tasks with calmness.
