Empty Room Meditation
All the walls are windows except the one at my back.
It is quiet.
I close my eyes, still my hands.
There is no thing in my head.
In 1992, I took a journal writing workshop with Christina Baldwin . I've been going through some of the exercises this week and re-doing them. The exercises are still relevant and push me in an emotional way. Totally different emotions than those of twenty years ago, yet I am still me.
"Imagine the space between your eyes and ears as an empty room. Take out everything except for one thing. This is the message. Thank the message."
Questions like these are in her books about journal writing.
Why is it a secret?
What would make it safe to tell?
Who else is this secret affecting in your present life?
There is usually a reason that things happen to us. What was the gift or the reason that resulted from this event?
Have you forgiven yourself?
