mindfulness

I'm finally, FINALLY, after reading about it for how many years... probably 2 years... I'm finally setting aside time to start a meditation practice. So far I can make it about 10 minutes before either my cell phone rings, or I say, Okay, that's good, I feel great, I feel wonderful... I feel good I feel great I feel wonderful... And the funny thing is, I DO feel good, great, and wonderful, even the little bit that I've been able to do so far! When I open my eyes, I have this strange sorta "shifting" sensation,  like I'm "re-entering" or something... It feels... just good. It's like a precursor... I think it's telling me there is so much more I could have, if only I would commit. Also, I know I need to turn off that cell phone... that would help...I think there's something to it. I"m excited to do more today. I listen to John Kabot Zinn, Full Catastrophe Living, on CD, and it just makes so much sense to me...  the part about training yourself, formally and informally, to come back to the breath... I want that for myself, I want to be able to breathe, and not always REACT... just breathe...
