We are living in a time where everything has been speeding up at a vastly accelerated rate, almost as fast as the speed of light and not all of it good!
We have been experiencing a loss of inner connection that can only be remedied by deep spiritual meditation. We need to ‘unhook’ ourselves from the whirlwind of worldly demands that are constantly crying out for our attention.
Our fast-paced society has brought more turmoil and strife both inside of ourselves and out there in the world than ever before. Wars and violence, economies in recession, banks and businesses going bust, homelessness and broken relationships on the rise…
Inner conflict, depression, feelings of powerlessness and despair, disconnection, isolation, sickness and disease…
Have a headache? We’ve been conditioned to “take a pill!” Have an allergy? Fix it with antihistamines. Cancer? Chemotherapy is such a serious option.
Something is missing
In a way this is good news. Why do I say that? Well because it drives us to look deeper within ourselves for answers and deeper meaning
The familiar more traditional ways of dealing with the world no longer satisfy. They are longer fitting or relevant. We are being shaken out of our complacency
We are starting to wake up. We are beginning to move away from the old mechanistic view of the world … the quick fix approach. There is a call for a deeper understanding of how everything fits together, of our connection to a much bigger picture
The ‘quick fix’ doesn’t satisfy
Sticking a plaster over the problem doesn’t solve it. It just covers it up for a while. Now that we know this more and more of us are starting to view the world more organically. We are taking a more holistic approach. We want to go deeper. We want to reconnect with our natural and abundant inner healthsprings. The energy of awakening is upon us. We are finally being called home to our true selves after having spent a long time away, a long time separated from our true joyful nature and natural source of well-being.
The challenge is how to answer that call to awakening that comes from so deeply within
Many of us have already spent years chasing after the promises of a materialistic life, thinking that is where our happiness lay … the money, the cars, the dream home or looking for the ideal partner to love and be loved to cherish and be cherished.
We have come to realize that true happiness cannot be found in the focus on lack, the continuous wanting – and that relationships based on neediness are not the key to true fulfillment and joy.
We are searching for a feeling of satisfaction, completion, fullness and joy
The only thing that material acquisitions bring are a short term temporary relief. Then once again we go back to being alone, empty, unfulfilled or numbed out.
Sooner or later we are driven to reflect.
The best way to reflect is first to, jump down off the hamster wheel and allow yourself to slow right down. This is the essence of meditation. Slow down and relax deeply. Focusing on your breathing can really help. Turn your attention inwards to the abundance that is already here, that doesn’t even depend on what is happening on the outside. Abundance has never actually ever been away.
Our true happiness comes from the inside and doesn’t depend on outside circumstances at all
Our joy, peace, delight, completeness … are already here, inside of ourselves waiting for us to reconnect, reclaim and radiate – from the inside out – to easily manifest our true desires and bring peace to the world.
One of the best ways to slow down and reflect deeply is through the practice of spiritual meditation
By spiritual I simply mean connecting with the divine essence of our being
It is about connecting with the essential qualities of love, peace, unconditional acceptance, trust, gratitude, purity, abundance and more.
Meditation is about slowing right down, deeply relaxing and turning our attention, our focus inwards. It is about developing the practice of self awareness and allowing ourselves to open to deeper truths and to the transformation it brings.
