"Do you love you mind?" Deepak Chopra asks this question in one of his books. Most people answer with a strong NO, saying " Its negative, running all the time, busy, out of control, I feel trapped by it..." Many of us try to and feel a need to control our thinking, have a need to control and manipulate other people and situations. Living this way causes us to suffer greatly on many levels and bringing about anxieties, feeling of disconnection, possibly depression or illness. Manipulation, control and denial bring about pain, chaos and disorder. A Suffering person gets trapped in negative perception of his or her own creation.
| "What you resist persists",|
It's time to stop fighting; its time to stop resisting! It is time to surrender and embrace the totality of who we are. Ego is not the enemy. Mind is not the enemy. It is a part of us that is awaiting our acknowledgement. Any change that we desire for ourselves begins with acknowledging and accepting where we are today.
Now we look at ourselves honestly.
Humbly, we open our minds to new ideas,
dissolving limited thinking, replacing our old, false
beliefs with new ones. We move forward, applying
new understanding and taking ACTIONS born out
of this new and expanded awareness. We stop
fighting, instead we surrender and embrace the
totality of who we are.
Throughout the day we take a moment, pause and
breathe, letting the thoughts simply be there,
without judgment, without identifying with them.
We let the mind, body and spirit unite in this
moment of NOW... we look at the situation,
examine our motives... we allow the answers and
clarity to magically show up...
According to Dr. Borysenko, "meditation is broadly
defined as any activity that keeps the attention
pleasantly focused in a present moment." In such
state, mind is calm and focused.
Not reacting to memories of the past or
preoccupied with future concerns, two major
sources of chronic stress in life.
Meditation is about embracing ourselves and the
world, not wishing it away.
There are numerous meditation techniques that
are very helpful. However, the point of meditation
is simply to be still, breathe and go within.
Its not about controlling or shuting the thoughts down.
Its about being the observing presence,
reconnecting with peace, love and joy of living;
the essential nature of human being.
Benefits of meditation are endless. Research
shows great improvement in overall health
and well being in those that meditate regularly -
more energy and clarity, more joy, more vitality,
less compulsive thinking, more peace and
balance in day to day life, regardless of religion
and beliefs. Meditation is not only about
relaxation; it is a multistage process happening
on many levels.
