Burning Daylight

Daily Draw: Tao Oracle ~ Hexagram 52 Keeping Still

Non-action, still mind. The closest I've been to created meditation is corpse pose at the end of a yoga practice. But a consult with the dictionary this morning also gives: contemplation, thought, thinking, musing, pondering, consideration, reflection, deliberation, rumination, brooding, reverie, brown study, concentration.

I'm reminded by this card, if we give life some stillness, the brain will fall in line. I probably do most of those definitions daily. Probably because I make a point of stillness in the course of a day. Non-action? Not so much, daylight is burning, get on with it.

  1. O my, I am meditating so many times throughout the day! My mind is the most quiet when I do something, so non action isn't my cup of tea either. :)

  2. Playing with the kitties is a meditation. Your mind is fully involved with them and the added relaxing bonus of them purring.

  3. With that title, I just knew you'd be discussing John Wayne. :D

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
