Judge In NFL Dispute Orders Meditation

By Paula Renaye

I don’t even remember how the subject came up, I think my friend was looking at an online news page and just reading the headlines on her phone, but the title of this post is exactly what she read to me: Judge in NFL Dispute Orders Meditation.

Really? I asked. The judge ordered football players and team owners to meditate? Really?

She looked up at me and we both cracked up.

But, seriously, what a cool idea!

"And your sentence is…you are remanded to the custody of (name a holy person or institution of your choosing) for three years of meditation, and, of course, community service. During your time served, you will pray, discover that the world does not revolve around you, contemplate the real meaning of life, own your role as a responsible adult, discover your higher purpose and determine how you are going to contribute to the betterment of yourself and the world at large."

Just think how different that world would look! I love it!

Of course, the correct word in the news story was mediation, which is what we should all be doing on our own anyway instead of acting like spoiled three-year-olds throwing tantrums about not getting enough candy. I not talking about professional sports squabbles either—I'm talking about all of us.

It's time that each and every one of us start right where we are—in our own bodies and minds—and make the changes we think everyone else needs to. Because only then will our individual worlds become better—and that's how we make it better for everyone!

If we all say "be the change" enough, will we?

Great post....although wasn't is mediation?

Regardless I really like the concept of being the change you want to see. So many of us are complacement and expect others to make the changes for us or for them to come naturally.

It really is important for us to take charge of our lives and be our change.
