Sometimes the biggest problems have the simplest solutions…
Our lives are filled with constant activities and distractions, we get pulled in a thousand directions at once.
With Netflix, YouTube, Facebook, the internet in general, and a constant connection it can be hard to “turn on, tune in, drop out” (as Timothy Leary put it).
Our age seems to be one of anxiety and anger, but it doesn’t have to be for you. It can be a clear and simple understanding that reverberates joy throughout all aspects of your life.
With a simple and daily practice of reflection and meditation, we can train ourselves to be in control of our emotions and touch into deeper understandings that help us to deal with the problems of life more efficiently.
It may decrease those problems or it may not, but regardless of the storm you sail through, you will be able to weather it with ease.
All it takes is to stop and just be for as little as 15 minutes, slowly training the attention to be at complete focus beyond any distractions that are arising in the mind. If you want to do more, do more! If you need to do less, do less!
But to just stop and be?
Well let’s just say, I hope you get a moment of that today.
Where are places in your world where you just get to sit and be in the moment? A park bench, a forest, your porch? I’d be curious to know.
