Meditation comes in all forms. I by no means am an expert in meditation but I’m trying to learn! According to Wikipedia, “Meditation is a practice where an individual uses a technique, such as focusing their mind on a particular object, thought or activity, to achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm state.”
You know how at the end of yoga class when everyone is laying on their backs and the teacher is reading some touchy-feely passage from her book?
Well, I’m deaf so that doesn’t really apply to me.
So when I was on my recent trip to New Mexico last week with my ladies, at the end of the class I was determined to quiet my mind and meditate for those last 15 minutes. Here is what went down:
*Out of the blue I had the sensation of the best damn sugar cookie I ever bit into with big sugar crystals on top*
(thinking to myself)
“Where the hell did I get that cookie? What makes that sugar cookie hard and the chocolate chip cookies so soft? Is it baking soda? Baking powder? Oh man, Springerle cookies. So chewy. I wonder how hard those are to make? I might be better off just buying them. I bet Jody knows. Plus I need the pin to roll them out.”
Needless to say, when I “woke up” I was relaxed and happy. I mean c’mon, I meditated about cookies!!
