Hello Anne, Thanks for the reply. Interesting story. Funny that I just got an email message about your post today. I was just thinking about this stuff again today. Coincidence? Hmmmm...
Anyway, I was thinking about how to be more centered in everything I do. I've been trying to follow a suggestion I read in one of my aikido books, about being aware of your center at all times. While I meditate, I try to focus on my center/hara/one-point, whatever it's called. Not an easy thing to do. I was just thinking about posting a question about this meditating on my center. I'm wondering if anyone else meditates this way and the results they've gotten. My goal when meditating is to strenghthen my mental focus, increase mental clarity and general awareness. What do you think?
