Telephone Meditation

Do you ever find yourself cringing everytime the telephone rings?

By practicing mindfulness, we can learn to treat the telephone differently. We learn in Buddhism that the sound of a bell is a sacred one, and we should treat all bells, even ringing phones the same way.

The next time your phone rings, instead of grabbing it the instant you see who it is, let it ring 3 times. As it rings, take a couple of deep breaths in and out and then smile as you answer the phone and say hello.

You'll be amazed at how much different the phone call goes.
