I know sometimes it is tricky. Tricky to remember to do it, tricky to find time to do it, tricky to find a place to do it. And there are times when even you do accomplish the above that you find it tricky to quiet your mind.
But do not worry. With practice it gets easier. I found this quote while web surfing this morning. Really focus on the words.
but those few essentials are necessary in every method.
The first is a relaxed state: no fight with the mind,
no control over the mind, no concentration.
Second, just watch with a relaxed awareness
whatever is going on, without any interference
- just watching the mind, silently,
without any judgement, evaluation.
These are the three things:
relaxation, watching, no judgement.
As quoted by Wayne Dyer "You are not a human having a spiritual experience but a spiritual being having a human experience".
Meditation reminds you of this. Meditation brings you back to the real "you" and not the delusional physical body that your ego tells you that you are.
It is important to make that connection at least once a day. To remind yourself that almost everything around you is an illusion you have created, but that you are truly so much more than that.
If you make a conscious effort to remember that every day of your life, EVERYTHING else falls into place.
There is no struggle, anger, fear, anxiety, poverty, stress when you are your "higher" self.
You are timeless, ageless, formless, pure loving energy. There is not a single thing out of your control. You are always safe, you can never hurt, your are pure love and perfect energy. You are eternal and you are part of the one and only I AM..
So take some time to remember this today. Even if it is 15 minutes while you are on the bus going to work, or 15 minutes before you go to sleep tonight.
I have been working on putting together some excellent meditation techniques that work awesomely.
In the meantime however, take 15 minutes today to be still and silent. Breathe deeply from your diaphragm.
Breathe in to the count of 4, hold until the count of 4, breathe out to the count of 4, then be without breathe until the count of 4.
Try this a few times and see how it instantly relaxes you. This is a good place to start.
