To meditate is to be quiet and go within. It is a time to reflect and a time for gratitude. It is a time to slow down within ourselves so that we can reconnect with our spirit. It seems when times get hectic we tend to skip our quiet times, but this is precisely when we need them the most, to put us back on course, to pause and breathe slowly and become centered.
Then and only then can we continue with purpose instead of rushing around without a rudder, tossing about in the storm of the season's headlong hysteria. When we don't pause long enough we find that our spirit begins to cry out in angst.
