What are ‘muditation moments’ ?

‘Mudita’ means Joy.

Unlimited, ever expansive – Joy is available at all times, everywhere. It warms our heart, silently whispers within, sparks up our eyes and shows us the miracles of life. In people, places, animals, nature, concrete, work, here and now, in our entire being.

The awareness of this joy actively flowing through the whole of existence bubbles up in many forms. Muditation moments are simply the expressions of this overflowing joy.

This joy is not a mood. It just IS the joy of Being Alive and perpetuates through the hardest circumstances we may be faced with. It gives us feet that tap to any catchy tune, makes us smile at just about anyone on the roadside, talk to animals, hug trees and gaze at the moon and sunset as if there is no tomorrow. Yes, it is the joy of NOW that holds this infinite power and potential to experience the richness of this precious life.

My dear friend Taruna came up with this fantastic expression ‘muditation’. Almost every time we met, we sat and meditated in some way or the other for some time. She very gently enquired every time we planned to meet in her melodious husky voice, “Are we meeting for coffee or muditation?” and we laughed endlessly.

We keep on experimenting with things around us and aspects of our own selves in the search for joy. Many of us try ‘meditations’ of all types. Soon to discover that meditations and practices of training the mind and body are simply tools to assist sensitize us to experience this omnipresent joy with just a little shift in perception.
