Every morning when we start our day. Scores of things cross our minds. Today I have to do this, this, this. Then comes a wave saying, I will do everything at my pace. This momentary thought brings peace. Then the whole day is spent in blissfulness. All the intended works are done, with no stress. A moment of peace throws you into the ocean of happiness.
Can there be any other state of meditation than Lotus position, with the thumb touching the tip of the index finger to form a circle and remaining fingers stretched out firmly? Think of a situation when a person takes a jump from a cliff. He is beyond a thought of breaking his bones. Similarly, when an individual is walking on a rope, he is above his fear of falling. For a rafter, the foremost thought is to go with the stream. Time spent in the flow state, without fear of outcome is Meditation.
Did you ever hear a trapeze artist saying 'Now'. no, but when they are in action, now is the most important time. It's now or never. The most important person is the person who left the trapeze to be caught by the other artist. We seldom experience regret for anything that we have done. It is generally what we haven't done (missed opportunity) that torments us. So let's 'live' in the present moment wisely and earnestly.
Do external things distract you? The mind can go in thousand directions, but there is a need to stop letting yourself being pulled in all directions. Meditation gives direction to the mind. The mind will invariably find a direction to chase. Keep meditating effectively.
Some people avoid speaking up due to many reasons like we don't want to be wrong, we don't want to be embarrassed or spoil relationship. There is an old saying that "speech is silver and silence is gold". However, a number of times we have to speak so that we are not ignored or taken for granted. Can we overcome this hesitation? Meditation helps us in speaking reasonably and convincingly. Meditate effectively.
