Sitting with feeling

I’m trying to start a regular meditation practice.  It’s always interesting to see the things that go through your mind as you’re trying to follow the breath.  This morning a lyric from long ago came into my head.  Sometimes people think that everything will be good if they do certain things.  But life isn’t like that.  Why meditate?  Will it make things better?  It helps us be present.  It isn’t that we’ll feel good.  It’s about making time to feel.  So I thought I’d share the wisdom of  Crosby, Stills and Nash…

“You are living a reality

I left years ago

It quite nearly killed me

In the long run

It will make you cry

Make you crazy and old before your time

And the difference between me and you

I won’t argue right or wrong

But I have time to cry…”
