Another way to meditate

This is really from Elizabeth Lesser and I thought it worth passing on as it has a slightly different approach:

"Disengage from the ego.
Develop a simple meditation practice. Every day, spend some time sitting in silence. . . . Sit with a straight back and relaxed body. Feel the nobility, patience, and strength of the posture. Allow your identification to broaden out beyond the ego with its constant thoughts and its shifting likes and dislikes. Just observe everything. . . . This is the practice of meditation."

I think it good once in while to "just observe everything" even if you are used to doing Centering Prayer which lets go of thoughts during prayer. Sometimes we need to sit in silence and observe where our mind goes. Just a suggestion for today.
