One of the things that I have learned is that to stay on your path (whether it is a path of prayer, yoga, meditation or otherwise) you must have a strong intention. It is far to easy to distract ourselves with something else to do. When I was on meditation retreat, I kept a photograph of my family at the front of my mat. Each time I sat to meditate my intention was to heal myself so I won’t pass my burdens on to my children. This intention kept me going for quite a while.
Last week, Brian and I sat down and watch this TED video. It has been sent to me many times and has been mentioned in three different teacher trainings I have attended. But for some reason, it spoke even more clearly as a great intention for any practice. These daily practices we have introduce us to and allow us to spend time in our right hemisphere. Watch and see why this is so valuable… your life will be better for it!
