Meditation initiates a relationship with ourself.
Ask yourself: "Am I honoring myself, my feelings and needs?"
Feelings are meant to be honored.
Are you honoring yourself?
We are taught our feelings don't matter and we should stuff them and ignore them.
This is a guaranteed way to bring us to bitter, resentful, emotionally unstable and immature adults. It's because we have ignored an essential communicator in our bodily systems: feelings and emotions.
Through meditation it is possible to bring up the emotion, sit with it, and acknowledge it, learn from it, and then let it go. This is what emotional maturity is all about. Emotional maturity is the next stage in human evolution.
Meditation lets us wake up to the truths and realities of the world.
It gets us out of our little heads which are full of illusions, grandiose, made up ideas.
We carry Infinite Light within us. But can we integrate our reality so that we take actions that express that Light?
Imagine you have a cabinet overflowing with files.
Or your laptop is filled with software, apps, files, downloads and more files.
Everything is completely out of order. There is order to your chaos.
But deep down you feel incredibly overwhelmed.
Meditation organizes and deletes those files in your mind, freeing up space.
More time to create, more time for now.
Also, a lot of people say, “I am happy. I am happy just because. I am happy because of xyz!”
How many of us are really happy for no reason?
Before you answer that question…consider the following.
If I asked you to quit sugar for 30 days, would you be able to do it?
What do you think would happen to your mood?
Or what if I told you that you lost your job, and you have to start living within your means, like really live within your means; sell all your clothes, and say goodbye to eating out at fancy restaurants 2-3 times a week, or even once a week.
What if your partner or significant other leaves you, through death, or their own choice?
Would you be happy then?
This is to paint a picture. Are you sure you are truly happy inside ‘just because,’ or are you happy because of all the fulfilling things that are in your life at this moment in time?
A great way to test a person’s happiness, or your own happiness, is to take away all outside circumstances that would make the person happy. And see how they react.
Take sugar, entertainment, stimulants, and all outside stimulus away. All of these things that you strive to obtain to make you happy, will eventually leave you. Once you fulfill your desires of obtaining everything, you will realize that you are still, at the end of it all, missing something. So what do you do?
We as humans are programmed to attract circumstances in our lives to distract us from pain. Why do you think this is?
If the person needs outside things to make him happy, this person will compensate in some way, take actions and behaviors that make that person feel ‘more in control,’ and ‘feel happier in the short term.’ Similarly, the person may engage in activities that are harmful, but that provide immediate alleviation or distraction from the pain of the void they feel inside, namely, bringing in harmful relationships, creating drama, eating too much sugar, drinking alcohol, taking drugs, overspending, and other destructive habits to keep the person temporarily distracted and ‘happy.’
Again, this is not to be depressing.
This is to bring a universal truth that has been swept under the rug, so much so that it is now taboo to even discuss it.
Since when did we stop acknowledging our about pain? Since when did we start to try to hide the fact that we all are experiencing it and that it is there?
By sweeping pain under the rug, you set yourself up for lifetimes of forgetting your essential nature. It leads you down a path that is so far from your true self that you no longer remember what it feels like to be connected to your consciousness.
