The Art of Meditation

Practice meditation regularly. Meditation leads to eternal bliss. Therefore meditate, meditate – Swami Sivananda.

In search of bliss, one can easily overlook the steps to get there… namely the meditation part.

So here’s to the fine are of meditation, and the practice thereof, and just in time for Lent.

Now, I probably should tell you that I have a long way to go to achieve Meditation Excellence. My meditation skills are in the Meditation Failure Category, honestly.

I am not taking no for an answer…

I am not taking no for an answer…

I long have been a fan of Mr. Olbermann for varied reasons, however when I found this quote on today it gave me a completely new level of adoration for him.

Therefore, I am starting week with renewed vigor on a number of fronts.

Here is to a week filled with a smarter class of people!

Musically speaking…

Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul. ~ Plato

It seems that part of Being Bodacious is having a “theme song.”

Apparently, I am less than bodacious than I thought since I find myself “theme song-less” and more than that, I am clueless as to what I should even pick for a theme song!

So the question becomes, does having a theme song (or the lack thereof) increase (or decrease, as it were) ones bodacious-ness or does it just not matter at all.

Truthfully, for me, life without music would be very empty existence.

However, does one need a theme song with which they identify?

I would like to think that I my life is not easily defined by one song.

Truthfully, my music choices change daily with my mood. From Beethoven to Mraz and everything in between – my tastes run the gamut.

However, StevoFC recently shared with me an incredibly talented new musician, Steve Moakler, and while it is not a theme song… it is great for Valentines Weekend.

Trained Monkeys

In my on-going search for employment, today entered a new phase. I applied a couple of weeks ago for a “relief rural carrier” (i.e. substitute mail carrier) with the United States Post Office.

Yes, that United States Post Office!

After filling out their extensive and exhausting application, progressed to an “online personality evaluation” – that would be a one hundred and eighty-question personality evaluation. A friend warned me to answer, “Ask your supervisor” for any questions in which I might have my own opinion about!

I must have answered correctly because a few days after that I received an email to inform me that my next step was to schedule my “postal exam” within the next ten days.
