Life is Truly Magical
Life is utterly magical! The moment that you deeply relax beyond your mind's agenda, you can feel it! This magical experience of life naturally occurs when we release all doubt, worry, and concern for what is ahead. When you trust that you will be taken care of, you are creating room for the magic to enter! Hasn't your life been provided for up until now? You've had enough food, water and shelter...yes? The more you can relax into this trust, the easier it becomes to FEEL this feeling inside. You are always being provided for by the Universe. It is always going to take care of you, so you can relax now and truly rest inside.
"A person returning to their higher self is like a raindrop returning to the sea." ~Deepak Chopra
Truly resting inside yourself will eventually free you from the incessant mind chatter. This resting within is otherwise known as meditation. This word "meditation" may have some convoluted concepts attached to it, so please unravel any misconceptions as they are revealed to you. Meditation is not about mind-control, affirmations, chanting some mantra, channeling some wild experience, or concentrating on a flickering candle flame for hours. It's a deeply relaxing, yet expansive mind-freeing playful inner experience of alert witnessing consciousness. It is not something you do, but something that naturally happens to you through relaxing into the stillness and silence within. This stillness and silence are the passage-ways that open the doors to this magical world around you. Meditation is that one golden key that WILL allow you to find that magical path in your life.
"The goal of meditation is not knowledge, but an alteration of consciousness. The highest result is pure harmony, a simultaneous and equal cooperation of logical and intuitive thinking." ~The Buddha (Siddhartha Gautama)
Inherent in every moment is this intelligent conscious energy that is here to bring out our greatest joy and purpose here. Every time you rest in this intelligent conscious energy, the Universe rewards you with total ecstasy and freedom. To discover this, one must first quiet the mind. However, since the mind is wrapped in deep societal conditioning, constant information data input, and emotional turbulence from relationships, finding stillness can seem like an impossible task. So be patient with this process!! There are about 60,000 thoughts flowing through your mind in one day, which means 60,000 opportunities to find the gap between each of those thoughts. Finding stillness can be as easy as placing your attention on the gap between this word...and the next word, and holding it there. When the mind eventually stops, everything stops with it, and a pure silence spreads to every c ell throughout your body. This experience creates a place inside you of peace, and a magnificent surrender to the divine within, where you may easily discover the true meaning of your life. All problems are magically solved from this place as well as all disease and fear are dissolved from within the core of this deeper stillness.
"Love is the cosmic glue that holds our Universe together." ~Carolyn North's 4 year old grand daughter
There are two basic ways to achieve stillness of the mindbody. The first is through a burning desire to be still and the second is a constant awareness of the silence that exists beneath the mind chatter. You can alternate between both of these if you cannot decide. The key is to practice everyday especially if you don't see or feel any results. Beginner meditators usually don't feel results for several months, so patience is key. Meditation is all about the surrender of the mind and its agenda. It's about releasing your attachment to this world, your body, your identity and all the suffering that comes with it. It's about discovering something much greater inside yourself than who you thought you were. The wait will be truly worth it when you tap into your soul and get a taste of infinity. This is how you discover your magical path and the amazing peaceful power within you!
