Through practising mindfulness and meditation you learn how to find your centre.
Your centre is that place within you that is calm and still no matter what is going on in your mind, your life or the world around you.
Your centre is like the depths of the ocean while everything else is just a ripple on the surface.
Your thoughts and feelings may obscure your centre from time to time, but it is always there.
Your centre is where acceptance and inner peace lie.
While you may experience highs and lows of emotions, your centre is constant and unchangeable. It is like an anchor in a storm.
By sitting in silence you become aware of your thoughts and feelings, and learn to see beyond them to your centre.
Although you find your centre by looking within yourself, it is not a specific point. You centre is a stillness that expands to include everything. It is the source of truth, joy, insights and creativity.
Your centre is a place you can start from and which you can return to.
No matter what is going on externally, keep bringing yourself back to your centre and beginning again.
Take a few minutes to be in the moment and look within to find your centre today.
