Meditation and running

Running is probably the most natural way to exercise, well maybe swimming as well. Because I love to run, (those who know me would laugh at this – I know I don’t look like a runner), I become agitated when a day or two pass without me running. I was thinking about it this morning before I sat down to meditate. Meditation is the most natural thing to do. God gave it to all of us. I must constantly guard against the temptation to judge my meditation. “This was good” or “This was not so goo” or “I struggled so much this morning with thoughts”. I remind myself daily that this is the best work I can do, the time spent in meditation. Do not quite, just do it!
