Meditation Has a Secret: 5 Questions to Consider

Meditation has a secret.

It doesn’t work for everyone (GASP!).

Of course, this isn’t what we’re told about this powerful, ancient practice. The list of amazing meditation benefits for mind, body, and spirit are practically endless (and easy to Google). Need to get more grounded and focused? Stressed out? Experiencing pain? Want to connect to your inner guidance? Meditation is the cure for all your ills.

But if you ask the average person, they’ll tell you (likely in great detail) the TRUTH about meditation; how they can’t sit still or quiet their mind, they can’t fit it into their day, or they tried it and didn’t like it or didn’t get any effect.

It could even be said that meditation benefits all people, but not all people benefit from meditation. 

The true dirty secret of meditation involves the pressure we feel to always be doing something, and to do it as a means to an end, which creates for us a meditation practice that is more like a checklist than personal development. In turn, this can lead to some pretty undesirable outcomes.

Surrender

Suitcases

If we surrender to the new
What may happen?
We don’t know…

It may not bring us instant joy
Or immediate relief
Because we can’t see the big picture
Or its temporary nature,

It may seem to lead us down a path
Which feels permanent,
Like concrete in our souls,
We may work harder, longer,
We may think we’re broken for a time

And yet, if we choose the path of same
We know what happens there –
More of what we’ve always known

What is the decision?
Do we risk it?
Do we listen,
To the whisper
Of surrender?

Daily Bliss – August 11

The Angels remind us that leadership is not about being “in charge”.  It’s taking charge of ourselves–our emotions, actions, and healing and growth needs–and holding authentic space for others to do the same.  We have opportunties to be an example of this every day, if we’re willing to take the leap.

The Angels remind us to appreciate the gifts we receive, even if they’re wrapped in packages we don’t understand or wouldn’t have chosen.  So many time we throw out something valuable because it doesn’t appear so on the outside.  As Mary Oliver writes, even darkness can be a gift.
