Meditation and Memoir

My daughter Kate and I had a wonderful conversation on Monday about the difference between fantasies, feelings, and actions.  I resolved to get back into the practice of meditation as a result of that conversation.  I am fortunate to work in a place that provides opportunity for meditation at work, so I have begun using the Meditation Room on a daily basis.  Like other disciplines, meditation should be done for its own sake.  However, we now know it also has positive health benefits.  My guess is that it can have positive benefits for work, also. In silence, the heart opens.  I believe an open heart and a shimmering mind are keys that help the writer unlock the doors of memory.
