Had a good birthday yesterday ~ but I'm always glad when the day has passed and I can get on with life. As much as I love all the good wishes, I prefer to hang out in the mind-state of being referred to as "no one special to be." So now I can go back to that place, as much as I am able to on a moment by moment and day to day basis.
Speaking of that place of not being anyone special, yesterday was my five month anniversary of daily meditation. Twice a day, and often three times daily, I meditate. It is its own practice. I'm not trying to get anywhere, not trying to become anyone other than who I am, not striving to change anything about my life or the world as it is. Just aiming to be present. The practice is its own reward.
