gifts of meditation
Online courseThe foolish man seeks happiness in the distance; the wise grows it under his feet. - James Oppenheim
physical health -
Stress, tension and negative emotions silently erode your life force. As you
decrease these negative influences through your meditation, you will
experience profound positive effects on your physical health, from increased
vitality to a greater sense of general well being.
decisions - In
the whole history of the world, you are unique, and you have uniquely
special path to follow in life. In the silence and stillness of meditation,
you will perceive more clearly the still, small voice within that can guide
you safely along your life’s path. By bringing you closer to your life’s
purpose, meditation sets you free to become more truly and uniquely yourself.
be happier -
Have you noticed that in the past you might have been getting to ‘happy’
but not any ‘happier’. We tend to seek happiness outside ourselves – where
we are, what we possess, who we are with - but meditation helps us to
realise that real, lasting happiness is an experience which flows from
within and exists independently of our outer circumstances. As our
meditation evolves, we become increasingly happier.
Growth - At the
very core of your existence lives a being of great beauty, wisdom and delight.
This being is none other than your own highest self. Jesus Christ spoke for
all faiths when he declared that the “kingdom of heaven is within.” Through
meditation you will grow into your highest self, and all its inner wealth will
be yours to use in your day-to-day life.
brings outer peace
- Everything starts from within! As you develop more inner peace through your
practice of meditation, your outer life will become more peaceful as well.
Little things start to happen as your life is touched by the expanding inner
fragrance of meditation: problems fall away or are resolved more easily; your
dealings with people become deeper and more fulfilling; and you will develop
new and greater outer capacities.
Creativity - The
essence of real creativity is the same revelatory experience encountered in
meditation. Imagine developing the skills to source your infinite creativity
at will. Rather than your creative moments arriving at their leisure, with
meditation you will be able to discover and explore your infinite potential
when you decide.
- Meditation will have a positive effect on the quality of your sleep. As your
mind becomes calmer, you will fall asleep more easily, your dreams will be
more soulful and you will sleep more soundly.
