May 21st: World Meditation Day

Did you know about this? It’s news to me. A local yoga and meditation studio here in West Vancouver just sent me an invite to join their special session today. In London, England they are setting up recreation centres and parks for group meditation. There is a Brit who is hosting a meditation session in London this morning and flying to Vancouver to hold a group session at our Museum of Anthropology tonight.

Kind of wonderful for more and more people to de-stress and enjoy mindfulness. Our appointment with life is in the present moment. If we do not have peace and joy right now, when will we have peace and joy – tomorrow or after tomorrow? What is preventing us from being happy right now? As we follow our breathing, we can say, simply, “Calming, Smiling, Present moment, Wonderful moment.” (Thich Nhat Hanh: ‘Peace Is Every Step)

How appropriate that our North Shore Sangha meets tonight and will meditate together with people around the world.

Enjoy your day!

Janet
