Seeing and connecting with peace from a deeper place.
I got present to the fact that I had been using my meditation as a drug to erase or change how/what I was feeling. Whenever I found myself nervous, upset or anxious about something, I would sit and meditate with the goal of erasing those feelings. Now, I am practicing just being present to what I feel without the intention of erasing or manipulating things. Rather, I practice expanding my vision to see that whatever is on my mind is just small bits in the landscape of who I am, my soul, and the deep peace and stillness within.
