We live in a fast-paced, intense life, where everyone is seeking more joy, more money, better relationships, better health, a greater sense of purpose, and the list goes on.
In our quest for a happier life we ask many questions, we want to know the answers and we find many tools that we apply in our daily lives, hoping these will be the solution for our problems. But all too often the tools become obsolete and dull after some time.
Meditation is an awareness tool, which unlike others always brings us to a deeper understanding of life. If practiced on a regular basis it brings tremendous benefits to your body, mind and emotions as it works directly with the brain, its neuron connectors, the blood stream, and other organs.
Perhaps some of you have never heard the word meditation before or have heard it and understand it from a certain perspective or a certain reality. I just want to clarify to you that, for me, meditation is very simple. It’s not a technique or repeating a certain word over and over again but rather it is a state of mind that happens when you come back to a sense of joy and freedom within yourself.
For example, I was speaking to a few people some days ago and they were explaining to me how difficult it is to remain happy. For me, meditation is about bringing happiness into this part of yourself that listens. You cannot listen to the wisdom with a part of yourself that is angry or with a part of yourself that demands to be free of the pain or the suffering that may be felt in this moment. What we have to do is create a space that is joyous. The way to create this is to bring something much more deep into the picture, into the meditation. For me, this is to relax yourself. Relax. This is first thing you have to remind yourself of when there is stress, because what you’re doing is taking you away from the core of wisdom, from the core of your being. Ask yourself, “How can I create more relaxation around me? How can I create more tranquility, more peace?” When you do this, something begins to change, your focus begins to change. As you relax, your focus expands.
As you relax, you expand into a very interesting space and this is the space that I call meditation.”
You don’t have to do anything, all you have to do is let go, let go, let go, and go deeper, so that that beautiful nourishment, the beautiful light that is shining, moves down deeper and deeper, to all the points inside of your body, to all the energetic points. This helps you to relax, and as you relax more and more, there is very little space for all the emotional limitations that your mind or feelings may bring up during this very powerful moment of meditation or moment of transformation for this earth. As you relax, there is not space to hold onto anything that stops you from flowing with the harmony that is around you. This is the secret of this meditation.
