Forgiveness

This morning I practiced a guided meditation called “forgiveness” lead by Tara Brach. 11 minutes is something I can do. Thirty is too long. I’ll get there someday. At the end of the session, Tara read this poem:

Out beyond ideas of wrong doing and right doing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase “each other” doesn’t make any sense.

Out beyond ideas of wrong doing and right doing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.

-Rumi

What a great way to start the day. Unlike another morning last week when I attempted a similar session. Our cat, (mine when he is an angel, ours when he is not), decided he needed attention as soon I was nicely settled on the sofa. While I tried my best to be “present” in the moment and focus my awareness on the breath, our cat was climbing all over me. Would make for a pretty funny video, of which my husband wants to very much create!
