Bonus blog: Meditation - I am ageless and timeless

Saturday, March 30, 2013

I really felt the effects of this morning's meditation, and when the soft bell rang to stop repeating the mantra and open my eyes, they opened to see three generations of art.

I meditate different places different days, but in my multi-purpose room I have hanging a water color that my grandmother painted, a poem that my mother wrote, and a crayon drawing that I did myself a few years back. It was so apropos that on a day the meditation was on agelessness, these works of art would greet my return from the meditation.

I pondered whether my grandmother and mother, both of whom are deceased would know how much their art still touches me. And I have to feel that they somehow know they lived life well, and left bits of themselves for others... they touched the world and somehow made it better.

May all our lives do the same... leave something that makes the world a little better, in how we interact and bless one another.

Namaste. emoticon

    Art matters! And one of the ways it matters is extending the life of the artist . . .

    Beautiful. Awesome memories. My grandmother leaves us her one of a kind beadwork, very precious. Unfortunately, my Mom wasn't into anything at all so there is nothing of her. I would say her gorgeous garden, but when their house sells, the property will be raised to make way for those huge houses the well to do seem to like. They are in the only bungelow in a court of large two or more story dwellings.
Enjoy your Easter weekend!

    Loved this blog and am finding the meditations the piece/peace that I needed to make the difference. One of things I know but seem to have to relearn periodically.
