on my ipod are meditations.
meditations, desert and om music, and spiritual lectures. that's it. :)
(my beloved brother and Thay; Thich Nhat Hanh, Wayne Dyer, Coyote Oldman, singing bowls, Jon Kabat-Zinn... you get the idea.)
one of my favorites is The Art of Mindful Living by brother Thay.
yesterday while reading to the children, i had the thought that they were ready for his breathing and meditation exercises.
so the first thing i did this morning (as the -i tunes- computer was being used when i had the thought yesterday) was put the exercises on a disc for the babes.
there's the breathing exercise, followed by a couple of minutes of Tibetan singing bowls and Japanese temple bowls, then Flower Fresh, Mountain Solid, Water Reflecting, and Space Free--each with singing bowls and temple bowls between them for a small bit of meditation time.
i'm pleased with the composition, i think the babes will enjoy having it.
i had the idea that we could go have breakfast over a book at the doughnut shop this morning, but as usual, by the time we got actually Out, we were needing something more substantial than a little sugary tidbit.
so we opted for breakfast at a little cafe,
and then to the aquarium.
(i can hear chimes ringing... :), such a lovely sound... )
(both of them)
and a wee bit of Still
all is well, here.
we'll see you tomorrow.
