There are many ideas for morning meditations and rituals to set up your day. I love this simple idea that was given to me by an Omani student, taught to him by his grandfather.
On waking sit for two minutes in a chair to simply appreciate that you have a body, a physical presence and that you are here …
… Oh wow I have feet
look how they move
amazing how they fall out of my legs to the ground
toes so wriggly
Look at my fantastic hands
The shape, the complexity, the feel
My breath, my heartbeat, I am alive
This body is amazing ….
Two minutes appreciation of the wonderful amazing being that you are!
Good morning, here I am!
