New Meditation Mantra

As I was checking out at Whole Foods this past weekend, I noticed one of those little magnets with a nugget of wisdom on it:

Yesterday is history,
Tomorrow is mystery, and
Today is a gift.

– Eleanor Roosevelt

I have been having a hard time focusing lately during meditation. My thoughts are simply refusing to slow down and take a 5-minute break, let alone a half-hour break!

This week I’m going to attempt to change that by thinking what a wonderful gift the present really is. It’s such a small slice in time between what was and what is to be. I want to learn to treasure it as if it were some rare object, revealed only once.
