Recently I noticed how irritated I was becoming with our new printer which seemed incapable of doing the most basic of things, like printing. This got me thinking about my relationship to my possessions. I lived for five years with very few possessions whilst living in a Buddhist retreat centre, and I must say I was very happy indeed. I rarely missed the THINGS of this world.

And just about everything else you don’t want. 
 
The questions on a recent webinar I run seemed to be centred around difficult emotions such as fear, anxiety, guilt and a busy mind.

Mindfulness Meditation: wrapping up 2016 
 
(This blog was written by Ene Abah of Nigeria, you can read her blogs at http://belletammy.blogspot.co.uk
Sometime this year, I started to look more into meditation and mindfulness. I was looking to reconnect with myself on a certain level, and I knew what I needed to do. 
 
My god mother and her husband are mindfulness meditation instructors and naturally I turned to them. My god mother gave me two books written by her husband on the subject. And guess what! He signed them, whoop whoop!

There is a certain relief in change, even though it be from bad to worse! As I have often found in travelling in a stagecoach, that it is often a comfort to shift one’s position, and be bruised in a new place. Washington Irving 
 
It’s common to see meditation and spiritual practice as a way of changing ourselves, and this is understandable. If we feel unworthy about ourselves, we will want to feel worthy. If we’re unhappy, we’ll want to be happy, and if we feel stuck we’ll want to be free.
