rx for refreshment
-my focus,just for this moment......
..."empty your mind of all thought.then admit to it a single idea,
and concentrate on it for a whole minute.let it be a simple thing
you can picture in your mind-a rose of specific color,an empty
bowl you imagine yourself filling with bright fruit;a tiny sliver from
a new moon.think of nothing else but that one thing and don't let
anything else intrude.the minute will seem like an hour,but at the end
of this concentrated thought,the tension and confusion will have
drained away,and you will be better able to cope with the present
troubles grow bigger as we spend more time thinking about them.
i will interupt such thoughts with a meditation whenever their weight
is too much for me.it will calm my thinking and put my difficulty into
proper focus. ~one day at a time
