Morning Meditation

I like the Plum Village app on my phone that offers dozens of different guided and also silent meditations from the center where Thich Nhat Hahn resided. This morning I stumbled on a 20 minute silent meditation preceded by a lovely "Morning Chant". After hearing the chant I found myself just falling into a deep sense of peacefulness such as I so rarely feel during my meditations. Like everyone, I can get caught up in "trying" , in feeling bored, in trailing offing in long minutes of random thinking during meditation. But, for whatever reason, this morning I was completely captivated and transported to peacefulness by this chant. The words are;

In stillness we sit.

Our hearts are at peace.

A smile is on our lips.

This is a new day.

We vow to go through it

in mindfulness,

so the sun inside

can rise and shine

in every direction.

May you have a peaceful and mindful day.
