The medical assistant called me in. She tried to retrieve my record on the computer. It wouldn’t come up. She apologized and said she would have to take notes by hand. She was clearly irritated. I decided to do an abbreviated loving-kindness meditation, offering her my best wishes. Silently I said something like:
I’d like you to be safe
I’d like you to be healthy
I’d like you to be happy
I’d like you to be at ease in the world
For a long time now, I've been a fan of doing 21-day experiments as a way of kick-starting positive habits. The first time I did one, I decided to walk the labyrinth at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco on a regular basis for three weeks to see if anything in my life would shift. As a result, the inspiration for my iSkip.com website, which remains my personal passion today, came through.
In the 15 years since, I’ve done numerous other experiments on everything from writing in a journal every day to making dietary changes to trying out new fitness programs. So when I recently decided that I wanted to give a regular meditation practice a try, I invited my New World Library coworkers to join me.
