During the last two weeks of the production of ‘Fire and Gold’, there were some stressful moments and delicate decisions to be made.It was the first time that I have manufactured a CD in China and this meant searching to find appropriate companies to duplicate the CD and print the booklet (my previous two CDs, ‘Melodies of the Nightingale’ and ‘Melodies of the Nightingale for the Family’ were manufactured in Hong Kong).At one point, I felt flustered as to which direction to take and was under pressure to make all the arrangements in a very short time so that the CD would be ready on schedule.
At this point, a dear friend encouraged me to spend some time meditating so that I could calm my soul in order to make the best choice.
The next morning, after I prayed, I closed my eyes and sat in silence in order to clear my mind.At first, all the possible options flooded my thoughts, but soon after that a sense of tranquility filled my soul and it became quite clear what I should do.It was such a feeling of exhilaration after the confusion from the night before.I am grateful for the reminder of a caring friend who understood the benefits of spending some time in silence.
Do you meditate?I would love to hear your comments.
Thought of the Day:
“Meditate profoundly, that the secret of things unseen may be revealed unto you, that you may inhale the sweetness of a spiritual and imperishable fragrance…” -Baha’u’llah
