Well it’s almost that time again! Oprah’s Lifeclass is coming back to OWN in a couple of weeks and I’m super excited (as well as my husband) but it got me thinking ….
Are we preaching to the choir?
I know that may sound extreme but it’s true. The ones who are listening already have their minds open and ready for new teachings but how do we extended that pass Lifeclass, pass our readings, pass our teachings, and outward into the world in which we are all a part of?
It’s time to get out there more and push the envelope a bit by offering free (or at least affordable) programs that instruct our society the meaning of mindfulness and awareness in the present moment. Working in a public library I see first hand at how effective this is. By leading a meditation group twice a month I have seen powerful, not to mention positive, changes in the attendees. They came in, most of them, not knowing one thing about mediation and the awareness they can achieve. Now with simple instruction, motivation, and the will to want a better life these people have focused their attention to the art of Meditation. They are feeling better about themselves body, mind, and soul.
Very possible that if this meditation class was not offered through the library and for no cost these people might never have this new outlet, this new practice. These people who have witnessed first hand the difference meditation makes are taking it to their friends and family who might not believe in or know the benefits of meditation.
So while I might be preaching to the choir right now, to you, please keep in mind the name of this write-up. It’s more important you leave with what you were taught only to go out into the world and live it.
So choir members go out there and spread love and light to those with closed minds, unsure friends, and yourself. Because even if they don’t believe it let us believe it for them even if it’s at a distance.
With much love to everyone,
