Little Good Things

Slow down. Pause. Sink in.

“Discovering real goodness comes from appreciating very simple experiences.” 
- Chogyam Trungpa

Sun of my face today. Pause. Just a few beats. God that feels good.

Little good things.

Design by our friends at The Muse Collaborative

Sometimes it’s all you can manage.

These two minutes, right here. On my back next to a park bench. Feeling the sponginess of the grass. Aware suddenly of the solidness of the earth, like I’m lying on the shoulders of an underground mountain.

Breathing.

Pausing. 

Not overriding – not moving on to the next thing. Staying right here. The good thing has already showed itself. It’s fully formed. Pause. Recognize. Sink in.

Little good things.

Wind in the trees.

Green shimmer through the grass.

That small act of kindness – right there, the way she opened the door for him.

Kids laughing as they kick the ball.

The perfect shine on that Buick.

Grinning gargoyle carved into a roof gutter.

Little good things.

Pause. Recognize. Sink in.

Here is a meditation about doing just that.

Enjoy!
Jeff


Have a meditation request?

Great – please fill out this form. Write a (short) bit of context about you and your situation, including what’s helped in the past, or where your curiosity comes from. Although I can’t respond to all requests, there’s still value in asking. The act of simply stating a situation – and naming what’s already been supportive – can be clarifying and helpful.

Once a month, I choose one question, write a response and a meditation. These make up the column Hey Jeff, which is available to paid subscribers only.

Thank you!


THIS WEEK ON THE MIND BOD ADVENTURE POD

We’re joined by Jamie Pabst, founder and CEO of Spiritune, a music therapy app that supports people’s mental health. Spiritune makes explicit what most of us know implicitly: music can shift our emotional and cognitive state.

What does “clinical-grade music” sound like? We listen to two 3-minute tracks, the first designed to move us from anxious to peaceful and the second from lethargic to victorious.

A true exploration of consciousness! Thank you Jamie!
