Meditation 11/18

I spent about 10 minutes meditating this morning.  I wanted to lay in bed but then thought I’d be better off to spend these few minutes focusing my mind, cultivating mindfulness.  So I practiced body meditation, focusing my thought and awareness toward my body beginning at my feet and moving slowly to each area.  I found this meditation exercise in a book I bought a few months ago, but have only recently began to read:A Practical Guide to Buddhist Meditation by Paramananda. I think I will stick with this exercise for a while, it was very rich and probably a good beginning practice for this novice.
