A friend sent me a link: HEADSPACE: MEDITATION MADE SIMPLE: just 10 minutes. live a happier healthier life. I replied.
You are replacing outer noise with inner noises spoken in your ears. It is a short-term solution.
The challenge, use a mantra to empty the mind and make space for the body to breathe.The mantra focus attention on your breath. You become conscious. Its like going to a laundrette, cleaning your brain of thinking. Thinking is an addiction, rationalizing everything. Like trying to straighten a monkey's tail. Empty the mind and you discover a deepening silence. In this silence you become aware of yourself changing. Stick with the discipline even when its tough going. The reward is confidence, courage, strength and love. ..for yourself. This LOVE is not self-centred but an aspiration to face whatever is blocking you from living your life to the full.
My friend replied: I am not using this tool. I am still using what you taught me years ago:"Be like a slow moving car and a fast turning wheel". A good description of Meditation.
Meditation is like a slow moving car. But a time arrives and you become aware of the changes in your life. You become more determined like a fast-changing wheel to clear out the habits, obsessions, thoughts that were holding you back.
My friend replied, You don't need to convince me. I trusted you when we met and I still trust you with all my heart.You taught me so much not to use any "electronic" tool for Meditation.
The love that emerges in meditation is a power that attracts you to persevere, to KEEP GOING. It is powerful. In the old philosophy it is called god.
26 years ago, Meditation was a major discovery.
