How many times have you told yourself that you want to meditate but you just can’t find the time? Your daily routine is already set, too many responsibilities...it feels more stressful than relaxing to try to fit it in?
Meditation is a tool for relaxation but it is also so much more. It’s a way to get in touch with our innermost feelings, look them straight in the face and transform into positivity.
Through our sustained efforts to focus on positivity during meditation, we gradually shift our mind to become a repository for joy, creativity, and an explorer of expanded consciousness. We spend more and more time being productive and at ease, and less and less time on that which drags us down. How's that for a time saver? (The article continues under the picture).
How meditation really works
Think of your mind as an ocean full of waves. Thought-waves. In your effort to still these waves in meditation, you will see more and more of what lies underneath in the depth of the ocean. Emotions and negative patterns are floating in the shallow depths. The deeper you go, the more beauty you will find. Eventually, you will find inner treasures so magnificent that nothing in the external world can ever compare. This sense of contact with a deeper, beautiful Self is at the root of lasting, inner peace.
Yes, meditation is a time-saving device
Most human beings waste an inordinate amount of time in conflict with self, others, or life itself. With a sustained daily effort, meditation will give you a sense of inner peace and purpose. You will be more relaxed and build resilience to tackle life's challenges with an inner calm and strength, gaining the ability to face up to that which holds you back and muddies the waters. You will get to know the person you truly are including your best traits, strengths, and purpose in life.
There are many kinds of effective meditation practices on offer these days. No matter what kind of meditation practice, it has a wonderfully positive effect on people’s lives.
