In my research travels I came across a quote recently that is worth noting here.
“Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It is a way of entering into the quiet that is already there – buried under 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day”.
This is very true in my experience. Underneath you are already whole, complete and perfect as a being. It’s all there, buried under years of built up traumas, negative experiences, well meaning parents, misdirection, unconscious friends and relatives etc.
Mindfulness meditation work redirects you to develop better habits with what’s most important – the real you. The free, alive, healthy, embodied you. And it is all there within you. The gold is sitting there inside. But you have to go in to free it.
The Self Healing Mindfulness Meditation classes I regularly run aim for just that, to build the time you spend where it really counts – within your inner body. Accessing more of who you really are, clearing out more of the old outdated unfinished patterns and emotions and giving more freedom to your cells to do the work they know how to do, but can’t because your thinking mind gets in the way.
That quote by Deepak is a nice reminder of who you really are. The more reminders we have each day, the easier it is to change old outdated habits we have been brought up with.
Talking about reminders, Eckhart Tolle is coming to Melbourne Australia November 18th this year. For a one evening talk. I highly recommend attending! Tickets through Ticketmaster.
