Good Luck, Bad Luck, Who Knows?

In this meditation, we'll practice strategies to embrace the unknown in life, even when it scares us.

Let's start by finding

a comfortable posture.

This could be sitting down,

lying down or standing.

It feels safe to do so,

you can close your eyes.

We'll take one deep breath

together to further settle in.

So breathing in through the nose.

Slowly out through the mouth.

Inviting the jaw to relax.

As well as any tension

that might be in the face.

Inviting the shoulders to be at ease.

As well as the hands and the belly.

One of the quickest ways we can

soften and relax the mind is by

softening and relaxing the body.

They are deeply connected.

And very often, if there's tension

in the mind, there will be tension

in the body and vice versa.

So just practice giving the

body some space to let go.

As the breath settles

into its natural rhythm,

we'll spend a few moments collecting

our attention on our breath.

And with each exhale, feeling ourselves

relax a little more deeply and feeling

our awareness get a little more precise.

The theme of this meditation is

good luck, bad luck, who knows.

This is an orientation we

can take toward our moments.

It's one of equanimity, balance.

So I just want you to bring to

mind an image of a still pond.

This is a great visual to

understand the mind of equanimity.

Clear, balanced.

And as you look at this still pond

in your mind, see if you can feel

its qualities of clarity, ease.

And knowing that the depth of that

stillness is not just on the surface

of the pond, but all the way down.

Can you feel how you might have

the potential for that as well?

The depth of your being that isn't

caught in the superficial thoughts.

It's not completely consumed or

compromised by pain, emotions or events.

But that is able to stand in your life

with steadiness and ease, balance.

With each breath, feeling that stillness.

Good luck, bad luck.

Who knows?

This is the mind of a wise being.

Taking life as it comes, blending with

it, and then meeting the next moment.

So let's take one more

deep breath together.

In through the nose.

And out through the mouth.

When you're ready, you can

allow your eyes to open again.

Great job.

As you go about your day today, see

if you can bring this imagery to

mind and really embody the qualities

of good luck, bad luck, who knows.

Thank you for your practice.

And until we talk again, take care.
