Going Without? Try Going Within

“We don’t see things the way they are, we see things the way we are”


When things aren’t the way in which you prefer them to be, what do you do about it? You fix them, right? You do something about it. You think it over then act on it. You may even call in assistance. You plan, you orchestrate, you audition, you interview. You push it, pull it, probe it, curse it, slam it, bend it, shape it, build it and make it come together.


Now life the way you prefer it is all better, whoops, got broke again. Back to the fix-it-drawing-board.


Did I mention that you sit for a while and meditate on the results you desire before you go slamming life together to fit? Sometimes minutes, sometimes hours? Oh no guess I didn’t mention that, Do you?


Our “Guides” in all their different shapes, styles, sizes and every conceivable way you can imagine are on duty 24/7 trying to “get through” to you. But when you’re entrenched in the “force it to happen” syndrome, they can’t get through, can they?


They have been all over us about meditation, not just a feeling that you may have missed, but written words, over and over. “They” know of the importance and benefit.  


Once you can sit in a room alone or in Mother Nature for longer and longer periods of time. The Stillness will begin to grip you, take hold of you. You will eventually get to where you look so forward to your "med-time" that you will begin to place the importance of it ahead of meal time, work out time, movie time, TV time, etc.
