Monday Meditation: Breathe
Remind yourself to breathe throughout the day. Deeply.
Feel your chest expand. Notice the air fill your lungs.
How does this feel?

"Using the breath to bring us back to the present moment takes no time at all, only a shift in attention. But great adventures await you if you give yourself a little time to string moments of awareness together, breath by breath, moment to moment." - Jon Kabat-Zinn

From Karen's eSpirit message this week: On Sunday you will meet the character of John the Baptist, in the scene where he baptised Jesus.... The drama takes place in the wilderness where the river Jordon flows.
Here are some words written by Jan Richardson to help us prepare:

When you come to the depth of your thirst,
its dryness, its dust;
when you arrive at the far reaches
of a desert within:
may the God of the wilderness
bring forth a river,
may you be open to the drenching
of the water of life.

Meditation for New Year's Day:

"Happy New Year" by Steve Garnaas-Holmes

As this year ends and gives way to a new one
think of it as a gift you have received.
In the joys and struggles, delights and losses,
grace has made its way into you.
Give thanks even if you don't know what for.

Whatever regrets you have for the year just passed,
hand them over now. Without judgment,
place them in the hands of the Forgiving One
and let it all simply become part of your story.

Whatever hopes you have for the year to come,
trust it as another gift.
Be prepared to welcome the moment
each moment, with wonder and love.

Whatever resolutions you make for the new year,
know that a deeper current than what you want
or what you resolve is what God is doing in you.
Attend, and follow.

The new year will bring you grace.
May you receive it deeply.
