Secrets of the SweetSpot Weekend Meditation

Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer. And let faith be the bridge you build to overcome evil and welcome good. ―Maya Angelou

Meditation is the pattern interrupt – the space BETWEEN our thoughts – that allows us to BE present and flow stillness & silence into the world. If we can embed a thought flow into us either before or right after we meditate, we will start to move in the true direction of our dreams – or as Martha Beck calls it, “our north star.”

I have crafted my own set of personal heart-opening sutras – the secrets of the sweetspot – from the myriad translations of the Buddha, Osho, the New Testament, Thich Nhất Hạnh, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Pema Chodron, & St. Francis of Assisi and merged them with my interpretations of various books of the Upanishads. I use these sutras, each morning, in a process that is akin to planting intentions like seeds in the fertile soil that rests within.

After your regular morning meditation, drift your awareness to these five personal expressions of the universe:

• Patience,
• Acceptance,
• Defenselessness,
• Compassion, and
• Abundance.

As the last moment of your meditation drifts away, repeat each word like a sutra over and over and over for about a minute and then drift to the next. Repeating these sutras after coming out of stillness and silence is a gentle process that eases your transition from a state of restful awareness into more active awareness. One powerful, tangible result is that these affirmations ripple through our awareness all day long and the practice will help you to be a more conscious choice maker.
