With the hustle and bustle of everyday life it’s easy to get so wrapped up in monotonous routines that we miss just plain old living. This morning’s meditation given by Makini Henson came from Ecclesiastes 8:15 during our 7am prayer call which said that we should take time to eat, drink and be merry! In other words, enjoy the air you breath – actually think about the breath – feel it – immerse yourself in the breath as it engages with your soul. Go out and enjoy the earths beautiful landscape with all its vibrant colors and the array of shapes and sizes. Smile just as much on the inside as you do on the outside allowing your body to accept and let loose your inner child. Run, jump and skip. Play ring-around-the-rosey or duck, duck goose. Go dancing, skating or grab your hoola-hoop. When you eat, don’t inhale your food as you are accustomed to doing – as most of us eat but never take time to savor every flavorful bite. Do not gulp your water, apple juice or soda but take slow sips allowing your tongue to absorb the liquids particle by particle.
