Make meditation a priority; cultivate the seven transformative life skills.
Then, "Live life as if it's skewed in your favor." ~Rumi
Awaken the Force Within
The actor Mark Hamill portrayed the beloved character Luke Skywalker the Jedi apprentice, in the hit movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens. As the story evolves, Luke grew to become a guardian of peace and justice. He dedicated himself to personal growth, and the way of the Jedi. Once he developed these noble values, only then did he find the ability to tap into "the Force.”
What if you made a commitment to practice a deep meditation technique for just two months; and at the end of the two months you felt peaceful—even a little happier? What if you found it easier to keep your cool, and you found you were objective in times of conflict? And what if this gentle practice expanded your creativity by leaps and bounds, you felt more rested, and you experienced increased energy? Would you continue to invest the time if you knew that mediation would improve your heart health, memory and learning? That's an impressive list by any standards—and definitely a game changer.
1.) Boundless creativity. Meditators often agree that creative vibes flow in a big way during meditation. Creativity allows us to easily find solutions to solve problems, and to discover new approaches to both our work and personal life. Most of us feel fortunate to happen upon one great idea every so often. But what if your creativity was greatly improved? How would your experience be different if you found many ideas came to you with ease?
As one example, The Beatles rose to new creative heights during their practice and study of meditation in India. The product of this creative expansion was the White Album boasting 30 songs (doubling the usual number) on one single album. This album quite possibly represents the peak of their creativity. The Beatles reached number one on the charts in both the United Kingdom and the United States. Initially there were mixed reviews, but since those early reviews, the White Album has been viewed as one of the greatest albums of all time.
The hippocampus is the area of the brain that governs learning and memory. Neuroscience has documented physical improvement in the hippocampus with regular practice of meditation, in as little as eight weeks. In other words this area of the brain actually grows.
7.) Tap into the Force Within. Have you ever tried to work through an important life decision in a crowd? It usually doesn't work very well, right? Conversely, if you've ever visited a redwood forest alone, early in the morning, while the mist is still nestled in the trees, when the forest is so silent, you can hear your breath as you walk—that's the space that you can find real answers. Realistically, many of us don't have access to a redwood grove, but mediation practice can bring us to that same silent peaceful space of deep and true connection within.
Meditation is a gentle self-cultivating practice, a valuable tool that can deliver improved health, happiness, emotional intelligence, creativity, and inner peace. There is absolutely something profound to be gained. After all, mediation has been practiced around the world for over 5,000 years.
