Meditation Bliss

Meditation. Sounds simple, but it’s hard. Sitting silently still for 15 minutes without thinking about anything in particular is a challenge for me. 30 minutes even more challenging. I learned Vipassana Meditation today. While sitting still, you (silently) say to yourself, “Rising, Rising, Falling, Falling” (following your breathing pattern). As much as I tried not to “think,” I ended up thinking about a lot of things – the noises around me, my job, and other random, boring stuff. At one wandering point, I thought about the can of pumpkin in my closet and how delicious it would taste blended with all of the other ingredients I usually use (seriously, no joke). Overall, I’d say meditation was a success. I left with a happy, refreshed soul AND a new Bella recipe.

Meditation Bliss Bella Blend: Pumpkin, Spinach, 1/2 Avacado, Raspberries, Blueberries, Strawberries, Blackberries, Cinnamon, Water, Ice

(FYI: In Vipassana Meditation, when you feel yourself starting to “think” you’re supposed to say “Thinking, Thinking” and then go back to “Rising, Rising, Falling, Falling”)

If you’re intrigued and want to try meditating, this is where I meditate.
