There’s a quiet stream by a large oak tree, the sun is shining, you don’t have any place to go or anything to do, you are relaxed, at piece with yourself, with the world. That’s meditation, but only a part of meditation. A second important part of meditation is the path to the quiet stream.  The path to this quite stream isn’t filled with self loathing or doubt because you keep finding yourself deep in thought. The path is quiet, but also filled with distracting thoughts like beautiful little birds fluttering down to try and get your attention. Those thoughts are an important part of meditation, they are key to getting to know your own mind. What kinds of things do you typically think about? Work, your family, stresses in your life? As the thoughts come into your mind gently let them dissolve.  You’re not the least bit disturbed by the birds as they swoop in and pull your mind away from your journey to the the quiet stream. You simply brush them gently away and continue on your way.

There are two simple goals to meditation, giving your mind a rest and taking some time each day to get to know how your mind works. They go hand in hand like jam on toast.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source.

Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.
