The Bridge Over the River Ganges by richardcgreen The Bridge Over the River Ganges by richardcgreen
This Summer, I've been reading a book entitled MINDFULNESS for Dummies.
It's about being with the present moment, leaving our thoughts alone, whether they be negative
thoughts about past failures, future events, etc etc and, in meditation: FOCUS ON OUR BREATHING.
Getting into a habit of meditation is not so easy as it seems. I've been trying for 15 minutes
per day. It's quite amazing how our thoughts roll on and on...Just...breathe.

I feel like a minuscule figure at the foot of that statue in this painting. Very zen.

I love your comment Desmond. I think you, in fact,
read what I wrote, and I appreciate that. I wish I were
BETTER at meditating and Zen, but I've been working on
it for decades. I shall give it to my son, for his little room
in Seattle. He's really into Mindfulness and Zen... and is a
very accomplished meditator. If that's possible....after all:
it's just sitting, as they say.

Kind regards and a special THANKS to you, sir.

Yes, he is one among the popular hindu god, know for self-control and as destroyer. Google about him, you'll find a lot more. Its a vast history.
