Wouldn’t it be easier to live in a world where you could control how your children behave in public, the quality of work produced by your employees, or receiving exceptional service at a busy restaurant? It’s impossible to control how other people act in your presence; however, it is possible to take a steady approach and look at circumstances differently for your own benefit.
By participating in a rhythmic relaxation, meditation allows ease and flow to enter one’s life by the steady stream of breathing in and out. When you have the chance to clear your mind from all things unwanted, you’re able to step aside from your own conflict. Bob Roth, writer of the best selling book, ‘Strength in Stillness: The Power of Transcendental Meditation’, shows his readers how transcendental meditation can provide relaxation and strategic clarity by his depiction of ‘The Ocean Analogy’. During a heavy storm, the surface of the ocean may show high and uneasy waves; however, at the very depth of the ocean, the bottom core provides stillness. Transcendental meditation allows anyone to gain from this type of ease when accessing from the depth of their inner core.
The process of meditation can also be described as slowing down a fast moving train going in the wrong direction by thinking or believing in thoughts that are not pleasing. Taking the mental shift to slow down the train and move its wheels in the opposite direction can alter the energy to more rewarding circumstances.
Practicing meditation for 15-20 minutes a day can access a new level of calm energy. In simpler terms, mediation can access insights while also stopping thoughts that do not benefit you.
Live a happy and healthy lifestyle and always find your best self in your career.
