I could go on about its benefits, but if the benefits I've just mentioned above aren't powerful enough to convince you that you should be meditating regularly, nothing will
But I suspect that, if you're not meditating regularly, it's not because you don't intellectually understand its benefits.
So, if you're not meditating regularly, why not?
I understand you're normally busy. You may have problems you're struggling to deal with. You may have kids who take up a lot of your time, or a demanding partner or business or job.
But, if you're going to be confined to your home for the next few weeks or possibly even months, that excuse no longer holds water.
Perhaps it never did even when you were really busy. Maybe the true purpose of this pandemic and consequent lockdown is to make us all question how we live
and what we normally do
with our time every day.
This is a Spiritual Reset
, a time for Reflection and Contemplation
that will lead to much-needed personal and societal Rejuvenation and Transformation
Don't get me wrong. I'm not blaming you. Our society is not set up to encourage people to spend time meditating. Quite the opposite in fact.
We're conditioned to believe that hard work and continuous busyness are the keys to success in life and business (there's no accident the words are so similar!), and if we're not continuously busy, we're somehow not a worthwhile member of society.
And of course, let's not forget the continuous pressure of having to earn money to support you and your family.
Trust me, I know these pressures well. I have a family and I've experienced the stress that family life and lack of money can cause.
But now, although you have time at home, you may be stressing even more about paying your bills because you've been prevented from working.
But these are the very reasons you need to meditate. Meditation allows you to Escape from all the Stress
and Find Peace of Mind
no matter what's happening in your life for the time you're in meditation.
Then, when you come back to your life, you don't feel the same way about your apparent problems because you're in a different state of mind.
What's more, you can often get answers to problems while you're in meditation.
Again, I know this from personal experience. I've been meditating pretty much every day for over 20 years and its profoundly changed and improved my quality of life.
Meditation has also helped me get through some very challenging times in which I could have spiralled down into depression or even psychosis, but it helped me let go of the darkness and find the Light in my own mind again. If you're going through some challenging times right now
- maybe you're feeling depressed, overwhelmed, stressed out and anxious about the state of the world and your life - you're in the right place to start healing these conditions
and finding your way back to the Light in your own mind that is the source of your Happiness, Peace
Or maybe you already see the Opportunity for Transformation
this time presents and are willing to learn to embrace the Challenges that Life Throws at You
and Enjoy Your Moment-by-Moment Experience
