Being a book lover from long ago, you might say I’m in seventh heaven owning a book shop! So many wonderful books… On the other hand, I do think it’s possible to read too much! I believe we need time to assimilate what we read otherwise it just becomes information overload. I chose The Quiet Heart by Dr Peter Gruenwald for the first book for The Honeyclock Book Discussion Group and took it home about a month ago to have a bit of a look. Normally, I would finish a book this size in a day or two, maybe a week if I was really busy – but not this one! Talk about needing time to assimilate! Very early in the book, Dr Gruenwald describes his ‘Heart Breathing’ exercise, a type of imaginative meditation technique. Straight away, I have incorporated this into my morning meditation. I found it remarkably easy to begin, and also to maintain. It’s simple, and yet I find myself wanting to really get the hang of it before I move on further in the book. One of the next things is a Core Values Worksheet – it looks really good and I’m looking forward to working with others on it.
