Spirit inside of you

The spirit inside
is greater than the sky  
positive energy spreads 
it's obvious, all around
you already know
no need to know the path
feel the spirit inside 
it will take you there

3 x 3 Meditation Practice

3 x 3 Meditation Practice

It's not in the books. It's in our hearts.
Spend 3 minutes, 3 times a day, in stillness. 
A total of nine minutes.
Doing this practice connects you back to 
being more-here-now as you live your whole life.
Pay attention to the "in and out breaths".
Watch the mind for three minutes without judgement.
Morning, early afternoon, and early evening;
or, just whenever. There are no fixed rules here.
Do this practice without judging how well you did;
a subtle and beautiful transformation will dawn.
