LET YOURSELF BE QUIET
My meditation teacher used to say that if you meditate in the same place every day you will create an ambience in the room that will be calm and peaceful. Others stepping into your home will themselves feel (often quite unconsciously) those subtle vibrations, and automatically relax. A meditation place can be as simple as a cushion, or chair in a corner of a room. Meditation paraphernalia such as candles, flowers, or altars can be soothing but they are not necessary. You may begin to notice an almost tangible presence of peace and calm as you sit to meditate in your specially chosen place. If that happens just be there and meet the stillness. With your eyes gently closed absorb yourself in the peace and serenity of that atmosphere. At these times let the meditation technique go and just bathe in the subtle vibrations around you and within you.
