If you have never tried meditation this is the time to give it a go. The world is so full of opportunity we just have to look for it. Meditation helps to clear the mind so that we can see the opportunities more clearly. Sometimes we are looking in all the wrong places or not looking at all. The key is to free the mind from all of the habitual clutter of thought and allow emptiness to settle in. It is the emptiness that makes room for new enlightened thought. The most creative appreciative and allowing thoughts come when the mind is clear. Remember it is a practice; be kind to yourself and give yourself time to learn.
