Good Morning Everyone,
Sick Day Mini Blog™ - Woke up after 4 hours sleep but felt pretty darn good - So good I felt like posting this Mini Blog™ Still congested but on the mend. Thanks for all your well wishes.
I saw a post about how a fellow musician friend to mine has started to meditate and how it has helped him - I posted on his thread...
How I meditate...
I’d like to share what I’ve been doing with meditation, quietly for around 25 years. Like I do My Chi™ and iYoga™, my own interpretation of those ancient arts. I also do what I call Myditation™. Myditaiton™ is completely free form and there is no wrong way to do it. Where you have to be careful with iYoga and My Chi. You can pull a muscle or receive a mechanical injury (sprain - strain - even break) It’s good to take a few intro courses first and as always...CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE DOING ANYTHING YOU SEE HERE.
I don’t sit in an uncomfortable position but rather lay down either in bed or on a mat on the floor. White noise helps - either nature sounds - very simple music usually of my own composition - or my own chanting or mantra. I then listen; I listen to God. I never try to stop thinking or force my mind to be quiet that’s very hard for me to do, almost impossible. But after a while of listening and chanting or humming. It happens - I achieve that right before you go to sleep Brain Wave - the big one you ride to enlightenment and calm. I sometimes end up in a place where I no longer have parkinson’s. I know it’s only temporary, but I take it when i can. - - -
I hear the white noise, the music etc, but I listen to God , After 30 min or so I’m a new man - To me prayer is talking to your creator and meditation is listening. You can’t have a relationship without both. But remember - meditation is different for everyone. Find what works for you.
PS... MyDitation is not a registered trade mark as the ™ implies - that is only a parody of our possessive and our not so eager to share society.
just say yes!
meet Andy Ward King, a professional musician and artist until a diagnosis of parkinons dsease at age 49 forced him into an early retirement., he now uses his music, his art along with the whimsical world he has created in this blog as therapy to ( as he puts it ) outsmart his brain and make the daily battles with parkinson’s a little bit easier, to give him that all important reason to get up on the morning, to make his life worth living. Andy has learned how to say NO to gving up \ NO to depression and apathy \ NO to following willingly the road of decline that stretches before him. he learned that to say no to all of these things all one has to do is say yes. Andy has learned to just say YES to life/\\
