Meditation is the antidote for the toxicity that comes with urban living, you know, the busy, ambitious, hyper-competitive, technology obsessed modern society that worships nothing but power, status and success sbove all other known virtues. Its toxic because virtues of loving-kindness, compassion, consideration and self-care and care for other beings and our planet 🌏 take a back seat to our Ego needs to feel important and successful. The mind of a modern man is always worried, stressed, hyperactive, aggressive and self-centered. If you can relate than understand there is no magic 💊 pill but there is the antidote - the equalizer! Here is a toast to inner-peace, harmony and balance!
In meditation we observe the fluctuations of the mind non-judgmentally, letting thoughts come in and out without attachment, only then can the mind settle and the heart become tranquil. Become a passive observer of your thoughts, and instead of clinging to what arises focus on watching the inflow and outflow of breath. Do not try to control your breath, become timeless and fully absorbed in the activity of being, not-doing. Yes, you are watching thoughs 💭 💭 💭 drift by, while directing your attention on the breath, but, after a short while of training your mind and body to sit still it becomes "not-doing"
Through the method of this 'mindfulness meditation' your sit will gradually become either less effortful, or completely effortless and timeless. Then you will start to experience the true bliss and power of this method. Imagine, your mind sharp, clear and totally charged with fresh energy, kinda like a fully charged smartphone 📱 ready for a full day of activities. Your body may also benefit by coping with pain better, or it may let go of previously unconscious muscular tensions, your digestion may improve, and you may feel a boost of daily energy.
