I struggle with meditation. Silencing my mind. This afternoon I stood at my kitchen sink catching up on the endless flow of dishes we dirty in our home. Dishwashing is one of my preferred chores because I find it relaxing, like meditation. There’s something about playing in the water, and enjoying the fragrant aromas of dish soap. Most often I receive downloads of inspiration, or clarity on situations in my life. Today I felt a sudden silence.
“What’s the puppy doing?!” I thought.
I turned around, and there he was lying on his belly with his adorable paws sticking out past his face on the carpet nearby. What a relief I felt! Silence with a puppy has been unpredictable. I must admit however, it has been the greatest blessing having his silence in our home.
