I want Mondays to loose there dread therefore I am going to be sending you a special Energy Guru tip each Monday. So we have power Mondays.
What is the most touted and least understood word we use?
Take a deep breath and sit quietly for one moment and listen to the answer. What is everyone striving for which can never be reached by striving? What do we want for the world and yet can’t seem to have in our own lives? What is above and beyond any price tag? Come on you know it. It is a distant longing in your being. This longing is encoded within us. Yes, that to which we all long to belong, but more than that. Did you just think I was going to hand over the answer to you? Let’s awaken it. Let’s experience it.
Try this with me. Don’t just read this, read it and do it, otherwise you will never get the experience of it.
Breathe out that stress…
Roll the tongue and stick it past your lips. If you cannot roll it, just make an “O” shape with your mouth with the tongue protruding slightly beyond the lips. Breathe in deeply through the mouth. Exhale slowly through the nose emptying the lungs all the way.
I know just sitting still is one of the most challenging things that any hueman can do. Yet it is of paramount importance. Start with a chant or a prayer and move into silence.
How do you feel now? If you did this for 1-3 minutes instead of just reading it you will feel more relaxed, more at peace. That which we want, march for, long for in the world, we also long for in ourselves. That word has just been used…. PEACE.
We can do all we can do to create more peace in the world all those things are great, gracious, and inclusive. Yet, if we don’t know how to create that state inside of ourselves, how can we think it will translate to all? Peace is an epidemic. It is contagious. Just go sit with some holy (whole) person, anyone will do. It can be the Dhali Lama, your parish priest, a movie that is uplifting or yourself hopefully, and you will experience peace. The place where your mind is calm and not jerking you all over the map, sit until you have this experience.
