The Difference – a meditation

Find a quiet and comfortable place. Sit with your back straight, either on a chair with your feet planted on the ground or on the floor with your legs crossed. Let your hands rest open facing upward, resting on your knees. Breathe.

Close your eyes and open up to thoughts that trouble you. Breathe in.

Let the feeling of discomfort be. Breathe out.

Breathe in. It is what it is.

Breathe out. There is another point of view.

Breathe in. I don't resist what is. 

Breathe out. I allow things to be.

Continue to breathe normally for a few minutes. Do not force your thoughts. Let the feelings be.

Open now to thoughts that comfort you. What are the feelings? Let them be.

Breathe in. A good thought changes my mood.

Breathe out. A good thought changes my point of view.

Breathe in. I am open to other possible thoughts.

Breathe out. I am open to guidance.

Breathe in. A new perspective makes a difference.

Breathe out. I am open to a new perspective.

Breathe in. I receive guidance.

Breathe out. I have a new perspective, a new way of seeing things.

Breathe in. I can make a difference.

Breathe out. I am the difference.

Stay for a few moments. Continue to breathe. Stay with this awareness. When you come out of your meditation, nothing will have changed, but everything will be different.
