“As a lotus flower is born in water, grows in water and rises out of water to stand above it unsoiled, so I, born in the world, raised in the world having overcome the world, live unsoiled by the world” - Buddha
I was finally able to make it to mindfulness meditation last night at our local Buddhist temple.
I went to the temple earlier to get my picture, sitting in the center of a lotus design that is in front of the temple. The temple is such a beautiful location. It's hard not to feel peaceful and tranquil in their surroundings. I found it really beneficial in helping my mind calm-down and de-stress with what is going on currently in my life. By being more mindful, and focusing on the present (and not the past or future), I can better manage what is going in my life and be more observant.
