PM Meditation, transforming. Made the singing bowl sing briefly. Monkey mind rampant hard to pull myself out and remain on the bank of the river of thought.
AM My birthday so I slept in! 10 minutes went by fast. I centered, took a couple of belly breaths and said aloud, "I am doing nothing." I let monkey mind run crazy. Amazing to see the chatter, squirrel chasing bouncing from thought to thought. Until tonight-blessed day.
AM- Monkey mind was attached to body. I couldn't sit still this morning. My cat and dog also decided to join me. I maybe had a couple of minutes where ADHD thoughts ran without me and tried to get me to go along also.
AM - Calmer this morning. Lots of thoughts and daughter in background yelling for me. Until the evening. Oh also felt an emotion: happy/content. Usually just thoughts.
AM- Challenging mind wandered and took my body. A couple of times I didn't realize for some time the and body ran off!
AM- outside on patio, easy to let go and watch monkey mind run. Nice cool breeze and bright sun. Nature just being as I just sit to sit.
AM- In the studio this Saturday, while I sat I watched a squirrel be a squirrel. Lots of thoughts. Tonight I will try the porch of the studio, feels good being outside to meditate.
