The Secrets of the SweetSpot Weekend Meditation

Mantra: Om Yam Ritam


Sutra is pronounced soo-tra and literally means a thread or line that holds things together. I have crafted my own set of personal heart-opening sutras 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. By implementing this pre- or post-meditation ritual over the past few years, I have learned to make more conscious, nourishing choices in my life. I call them the Five Secrets of the SweetSpot. They provide me with an evolving foundation for reflection, growth, love and deeper understanding.

Each morning, after I have sat in stillness and silence for about 30 minutes, I drift my awareness to five personal expressions of the universe:

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