Seeing someone's face after they have successfully meditated for the first time is a gift. Today I had a couple of students who decided to stay for meditation class after yoga. They were nervous and unsure but willing to try.
As the two of them and one other student settled in for meditation I knew in my heart it was what they needed.
After the class was over, all three were almost on the verge of tears. They felt the peace that I had been telling them about, they understood how special stillness was and what it meant to be mindful and aware. The four of us knew that mediation would be a tool to help them in their recovery.
There are days when I think that my words, efforts and energies are in vain. There are days like today when I think maybe this time I helped someone. These are the good days.
