How often have you run into a friend coming around a corner at the exact moment in time to intersect with you?
“This cannot be a coincidence, for each moment is exactly as it should be,” says Moving Art filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg in a short film about friendship. These are called synchronicities, or meaningful coincidences that we can use as guideposts in our lives.
Use this visual meditation to reflect on these moments of synchronicity in your life!
Meditation expert Sharon Salzberg brings decades of meditation experience to the table to teach people how to focus by staying still while in motion in their busy lives.
“Consider for a moment who all has been in any way involved in your being here in this room right now watching this online,” she asks people in her interconnectedness meditation.
“We’re here because of relationships, encounters, connection. So, who all comes to mind? This moment is actually like a confluence of all that interaction, all those connections, as is every moment. We might feel so alone and so apart, but the truth is our lives are embedded in this greater fabric.”
Sharon currently offers guided meditations, courses and retreats in nature where it is easier to unwind and connect to the seasons.
Her wisdom helps bring guidance on many subjects including working through thoughts, finding compassion and kindness, as well as working with the breath through activity-based meditations.
In her upcoming book, Real Change, Sharon shares practical advice on how to embody the fundamental principles of mindfulness and loving-kindness meditation to create a better world for all.
