Monday Meditation - The Endless Now

A word about the videos I choose for Monday Meditations.

As is true with most categories in the YouTube world, there's a lot of weird stuff out there.

Someday I aspire to recording my own meditations, but until then, every week, I sift through the selections of the beautiful, the boring, the scary, the ones narrated by that guy who did the voice-overs for 1950's sex ed films.

Many are serene nature scenes accompanied by 'ambient' music (which drives my husband bonkers). These are lovely, though it's a challenge to provide a relaxing experience, best elicited by closing one's eyes, without missing out on the scenery. The 'scenery' videos, however, do fulfill my intention to provide a short recharge break in one's day.. a brief change of rhythm which has the potential to diffuse stress and provide momentary relief from overwhelm.

Sometimes, I also like to throw in a 'guided meditation'... these videos contain spoken words intended to bring the listener to a particular state of mind, or achieve a certain goal. I prefer these for myself, though, it is often difficult to find a voice that's easy on the ears. A matter of personal preference, I suppose. 

Today's meditation is of the narrated variety, entitled "The Endless Now".

From the description: "Are you still thinking about something you did yesterday or worrying about what will happen tomorrow? This meditation will help you stay focused in the glories moment of the present."

Enjoy.
