Hello, Open Heart Project. Welcome to a new week! I hope that, no matter how great last week was, this week will be better.

Before today’s 10-minute sit, I offer a few thoughts on how to expedite the meditative process. Spoiler alert: it’s not about doing anything.

This month, I’ve really focused on simplicity and its gifts. What can you do this week to simplify your life? What can you take off the to-do list, remove from your schedule, declare unnecessary?

This is especially important to those who may be struggling with the political or social situation in their country. It is very easy to become overwhelmed and we must preserve our strength and focus. So, if this is you, rather than wondering how you can change everything that is wrong, focus on changing one thing that is wrong. Whether it is by starting a political party, making a phone call to an elected official, or giving yourself a rest from it all because you’re about to burn out…it all counts.

What can you do this week to simplify your life? Leave your ideas in comments. Always love to hear from you.

With love, Susan
