I have a whiteboard at home which allows you to write on the wall and then you can wipe it off with a damp cloth. Well, today I decided to clean my whiteboard as I’ve had things up there for months now. Well, let me tell you, it was not easy to wipe those words off the board. The marker seemed to cement itself deep into the white board, and I was scrubbing and scrubbing. I wanted to give up, but as I persisted to scrub, the marker slowly started to make its way off. It occurred to me that this is exactly like what happens when you are trying to create mental white space in your mind to reach a deeper state of clarity.
Meditation is a tool that guides us to our true nature. It is a gateway to connecting deep within which is the place of universal wisdom.
Life goes by pretty fast sometimes, and if you let it, it will run as fast as you are.
We live in a society that’s conducive to multi-tasking, busy-ness, and constantly being on the go. Taking a time out isn’t something generally taught or honoured, and yet it’s one of the most ancient practices, that have made recent medical acknowledgements for its effectiveness in reducing stress, depression, anxiety and to enhance mood and mental performance.
It is an interesting phenomenon but one I have found to be absolutely true: when you make time for mindfulness practices, it actually creates time.
Yoga is commonly known as a form of movement. This is certainly a part of it, however it is actually a small part of the whole system of Yoga. Yoga is a multi faceted practice which delves deep into practices of conscious awareness, mindfulness, and helps give us tools to live life in a clearer, more informed and intentional way.
