Don't put your Self down
- As you look within, it is inevitable that you
will see things about yourself that make you sad,
embarrassed, and even disgusted. Please be kind to yourself.
You didn't know what you were doing. Do not carry
around the weight of guilt. Drop it. Forgive yourself.
And if you see yourself continuing to return to
self-loathing, do not get mad at yourself for continuing this
now obviously upsetting behavior. Just let it go
without inner commentary. Resolve to never repeat the
inappropriate actions and go on with your life. Fill yourself
with purity and joy using prayer, meditation, and
affirmations - whatever works to bring you peace. With each
breath, you are being forgiven and given a new fresh
start. Don't return to what took your peace away. Know
that you are in the process of evolving and will be
continually finding things and actions that have been causing
you to suffer. Witness the process without punishing
yourself in any way. Always love your Self and you will
surely live happily ever after.

> this meditation group...Thanks for starting it.. Lora THi Lora,
I would suggest visitng the website for the meditation society
http://www.meditationsociety.com/. There are lots of techniques
listed there. Try a few different ones until you find one that is
easy to follow. Perhaps the first thing to try is to just sit in a
quiet place, close your eyes, and focus on the sound and feeling of
breath. Just breathe natually. Notice your thoughts, but don't hang
onto them. Just watch them come and go. Watch and listen.
I hope this helps. Meditation can seem difficult when you are first
starting out (and even after you have been doing it a while for that
matter). Just try it and be patient and perserve. The hardest part is
the actual committment to sit down and do it. Just sitting quietly
and watching your breath is more beneficial than you may imagine.
