Renewal

Sitting on my desk  is a ‘renewal Request’ for a magazine subscription.  The word Renewal caught my ‘Word for the Week’ attention, and I reflected on my Saturday guided meditation.  Experiencing, in little less than an hour, a deep relaxation and a profound energetic centering is a rich renewal.

To make new, to refresh, and to make strong, these are the primary definitions of renewal.  A vacation, a mental-health day, a lunch break, prayer and meditation, restful sleep, exercise, bathing, deep breathing, all these are some of the ways we renew our whole being.  However, to have the fullness of these experiences requires focus and intention; mindfulness.

It is not easy to achieve this renewal in a world, culture and society that is moving at breakneck speed, and, which is more often than not, chaotic and dissociative.  All the more reason to take a few moments to focus, intend, be mindful and renew.
