A Western Buddhist's Travels

Sightseeing & detours on the path of enlightenment

But the day only has 24 hours!

Most of us have had this thought at one time or another, perhaps we are so frazzled by the pace of things it is an everyday thought. Time to take a short meditation break. As I have described the routine a few times, I will ask those not sure to either search my blog or use Google to find the basics of Buddhist meditation. If it is your first time set aside 20 or 30 minutes for this. I can already imagine a few are saying, but I don’t have time, you will soon have more time. After meditating, you should feel a little more peaceful, and slightly calmer. Great now that you have achieved this, look at that pim, day-planner, or calender on the fridge, and prioritize the things on your lists. Put family functions as the highest except when you need to be earning a living, to support your family. Next the chores that must be done, and on this give yourself some slack here, don’t be fixated on doing say the laundry always at the same time on the same day. If it is a nice summer day and tomorrow might rain, have a picnic, go for a walk on the beach wth your family, and do the laundry in the evening or tomorrow.

If we eliminate those things that are not truly important we can make time for the people and thing that are most valuable to us.
