A Chilly Start to July

The first day of July was cooler than the first day of May, and even, this year, chillier than the first day of April. Sometimes this loss of heat happens in the middle of our lives or the life of someone we know. The body systems cool into some debilitating disease. The heat we generate by running around in our lives begins to dissipate.

Wait! That's not how it's supposed to be, we protest. As if our small minds know better than life how to live it.

Seeing things the way they are. This is the purpose and the challenge of meditation.

This summer day is cool, even downright chilly. Life reminding us that our energies too may cool at any time. That's the reason to take advantage of our good fortune right now and meditate. Today and every day.
