That’s My Story

“That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.” You’ve heard that one before, right? I have said this many times, thinking how clever and cute it was.  It tacitly smacks of deception though.   Lying to yourself.

Now I have been prompted to turn that idea on it’s head, thanks to this blog article.  That’s my story and I’m not sticking to it.  Because it deceives my true nature.

In fact, now that I practice meditation, I have been turning many misguided ideas on their heads. In so many ways I have been living in an upside-down world.

I hope the article helps you deepen your own meditation practice.  ~TH~
