In this present day, when we are running from pillar to post. Mind is occupied all the time with various thoughts. In the midst of all this, if we get a chance or find a moment to sit quietly, when mind is not working. Sometimes, like a lightening flashes through the thickest cloud, even the heaviest delusions can be removed from our mind. We are ready to create. All creativity requires some stillness.
The practice of breath awareness any time of the day Makes us scowl less, feeling joyful and gay. We can choose any comfortable pose Observing our in-breath and out-breath As it passes through the tunnel-like pathways in our pyramid shaped nose Rubbing our palms together, we place them gently on our eyes Coming back to the NOW moment, feeling fresh and energized Meditate as much as your current age Perched on a mat, in a clean and quiet space You can choose any given time of the day To spend some time alone with your breath, Keeping your fuzzy thoughts at bay Practicing it daily through sunshine or rain Will give you the much-needed zest To live life to the fullest time and again. --Geeti The Medi-Buddies Book is now on Flipkart :)
What do we do when we disagree with our boss ( be it in the office or at home )? We have to learn to let go of our fixed ideas. The opposite of fixed ideas is openness. If we think that boss is wrong, then we should be compassionate( considerate and tolerant ). If he is right then we should be open to change. We should try to always learn and grow. Keeping our own longer-term well-being in mind of course. Meditation teaches us openness .

It happens with some of us that we begin one task, then get seduced by some other option, and lose our focus. We drift away from what is difficult. When the task is incomplete or not done, we get worked up. some times we get involved in arguments, exchange fiery words. Meditation teaches us to govern our emotions, words, and deeds
As our practice continues, over time, we begin to accept who we are. And when we are true to ourselves, we begin to attract friendships and partnerships in which people value our true selves. This is liberation in relationships, to have the freedom to be ourselves, but always being ourselves.
A number of times we hear remarks like 'He is so generous' or 'she is so responsible'. Why not me? We all possess virtues like love, care, compassion responsibility, generosity, etc. some are able to exhibit it instantaneously and others may think twice. In many cases, we miss the moment and land up regretting it. Meditation gives birth to compassion, responsibility, generosity, love, and care deep in our hearts.
When I first heard an interpretation of Om Mani Padme Hum from my mentor Dr. Newton Kondaveti , I felt that a deep truth had been revealed to me. He said in one simple sentence - "You are the jewel". The words are simple, but the message is profound. We have to understand that everything we influence - our families, our relationships, our careers are influenced by who we are. And if we want to bring love and care to these aspects of our existence, we have to start with our own consciousness, and our own perception of them. We have to understand that - we are the jewel. If we shine, only then can we give light to others. Meditation is one of the ways to shine - deep, bright and eternal. -Saurabh (Art: Geeti Bhojnagarwala ) #meditation #beameditator #meditationforchildren #meditationforkids
