Today’s meditation “Explore Your Inner Garden” came to me during a writing retreat at Kripalu Yoga and Conference Center. I was working on another book (the one I plan to publish next) and the whole garden metaphor came up as an inner landscape we can use to tap into our creativity and explore at will.
When the idea for The Joy of Writing Journal came up, I stole my own idea and put it in this book first.
Here’s a snippet of my exploration:
I immerse myself in the center of the pond…Drenched, I feel the water within me resonate with the pond water, as if all the crazy energy of being a human in a modern world dissipates and the water within me takes on the freshness and aliveness of the pond.
Listen to today’s meditation and root around in your own inner landscape.
Then write! Does the inner journey spark anything in your other creative projects or a writing piece you’ve been working on?
Share a snippet from your writing, if you like. Remember, we’re not editing or polishing, we’re delighting in the rough and tumble of the journal. So allow yourself to share something brambly and unfinished.
