I’ve been pondering something all day. I have been reading Meditation as Medicine by Dharma Singh Khalsa, as Heidi has recommended several times. As a “B” blood type, I am supposed to use meditation and visualization as part of my lifestyle. This is the one area I have never delved into. I have thought about it, and maybe gone to a class or two, but never took meditation seriously.
Anyway, as I’ve been reading this book, the author gives lots of proof that proper breathing and certain breathing exercises will help to cure some diseases and lessen ones dependence on drugs for health. And I’m getting into all this. It makes sense. And I started practicing the first breathing lesson this morning.
Then, as I’m getting ready for the day, one of the songs we have been practicing in chorus keeps going through my head. It’s an old Peggy Lee song from 1946 called “It’s A Good Day”. I wish you could hear the song while it plays in my head – it would help you understand my ‘AHA!!’ moment here. Anyway, the song goes: “It’s a good day for paying your bills
And it’s a good day for curing your ills
So, take a deep breath, and throw away your pills
‘Cause it’s a good day from morning till night!”
So, do you see my ‘AHA’ moment? This stuff is universal and timeless. A deep breath will cure you. Even the pop lyric writers in the 1940’s knew about it. IT WAS NEVER A SECRET!! Maybe I just opened my third eye this morning.
Oh well. That’s enough thinking for me today. And it has been a Good Day!
