Evening Meditation

Truleigh Hill, South Downs

One evening a week I attend a local meditation group.  It's said that the goal of meditation is "to focus and quiet your mind, eventually reaching a higher level of awareness and inner calm".  I can certainly vouch for that and agree that it can have many positive effects on both mind and body.

Not everyone finds it easy to meditate, as it takes a little practice to start with, to just shut out that "inner chatter" and actually keep still. But sometimes just enjoying absorbing ourselves in a single activity and "being" in the present moment can have similar effects, such as listening to music, baking a cake, being in a garden, climbing a rock, crocheting a granny square or taking a swim.

For Mr Cocopopia, its going out for a summer evening bike ride.  Here are some of the photos he came back with from his ride last week ...
