Sorry for the delay, with the classwork I'm running a little late tonight.
It's 10:20pm and I'm ready to meditate! I desperately need it after today's stress Thank goodness I got all the papers in before that deadline. The teachers take a full grade letter off for papers that are submitted late.
OK. Long breaths. Bob is playing Skyrim so I think I will go meditate upstairs where there are no sounds of screaming monsters
I did about a half hour of meditation, that was just what I needed. I did a candle meditation in my room. I lit a candle and focused on it. It flickered a lot on the beginning and I thought about getting another candle. But then I thought that this was part of the lesson, to deal with things that might normally seem annoying, and to learn to accept the way they are. So I began to think of the flickering candle as a twinkling star, and I was able to relax with it. And the candle settled down, and it was lovely
