Just a Minute

In other posts, I have talked about the importance of meditation and inquiry, suggesting that even five minutes a day can make a dramatic difference in how we view the world.

Turns out I have been topped. Martin Boroson has built a meditation model around what he calls One Moment Meditation. The idea is that we can get the benefits of meditation in as little as one minute (and ultimately, one moment), repeated a few times a day.

I've tried this. And I like it a lot.

Just the idea that we can take a one minute break anytime we want is incredibly refreshing. We can do it before sending an email or after receiving a difficult one. We can do it before a call or a presentation. And we can touch that inner silence that is so healing.

This is not a quick fix. What it is, I think, is a quick entry into a meditation practice. Where, like with most things in life, our ability to touch that peaceful space will only improve.

With practice.
