Why is meditation worth your effort?
There are so many answers to that question. There are physical and Mental health benefits as well as spiritual and emotional perks. I meditate for all these reasons but here, I offer my deeper impulse. To do that, I must first share my take on things.
I carry a belief that we all come from “Source”. (God, Goddess, The Great Grandfather/Mother, Yahweh, whatever you are comfortable calling him/her)
At some point, you, as a part of Source (a soul), integrated into your physical being during gestation. You brought knowledge with you but you’ve likely forgotten as many of us do.
You then inherited the understandings of your bloodline past and present. It’s in your DNA. You absorbed further concepts as you grew in your Mother’s womb, being fed by the blood of your Mother’s experiences in the world.
Once you were born, the world around you informed you and you gathered theories from family, friends, community, school, tv, radio, the web, etc… this life on planet Earth.
All these perceptions circulate through your body and mind. In time, some may be eliminated as waste, usually those that feel blatantly and consistently wrong to you, others will settle deep into your marrow and the rest keep circulating until if and when you’ve decided where they belong.
When you meditate, it enables you to cut through the impressions circulating and distracting you and find your truth in your bones. The truth that’s always been with you. The truth that’s spoken by the elders from ancient wisdom.
It’s ever present. You’ll often recognize it when you hear it from others. But to access this knowing you must sit still and commune with yourself and Source.
If you’re like me, your biggest block to meditation is your impatience. You may feel you’re wasting time, “I should be doing something!” ringing loudly in your ears.
The truth is you accomplish more in a few minutes of meditation that you do in hours of running around doing stuff.
Take the time; make the commitment. You won’t regret it. And we need you now.
