When you are unable to concentrate,
Feel distracted and mind gets hard to control,
In order to check the rising tumult of the soul,
Get in tune with your inner self and meditate….
Sometimes we generally feel low and cant pinpoint a particular reason for feeling that way. It is the accumulated stress and toxicity that is wearing us down but our close ones cannot really comprehend why we are feeling that way because outwardly everything seems normal.
I have always believed that noone should be given the key to your happiness and real joy really comes from.within but am always guilty of letting the external factors govern my moods and more often than not my innocent children bear the brunt of my grumpy behavior.
It is especially during such times introspection is required. We need to sit back and Observe the invisible and hear the Silence..
So in order to make an effort to practice and not just preach it and to calm.the inner storm that keeps drowning me in agonizing sorrow I decided to meditate…
I had not done this before but have heard a lot about the benefits of Isha kriya meditation and how it has changed the lives of thousands of people. So I downloaded a video and embarked upon this journey in the hope to find some solace..
Initially I found it very difficult to keep.my eyes closed or keep my mind free of thoughts. It was almost like light is turned on and lots and lots of cockroaches have started spinning in my head but after a while.of hearing SadGurujis soothing voice I didn’t even realize when my mind was free of the clutter and my focus was only on my breathing.
With each inhalation I said ,”I am not the body” and with each exhalation I embraced the thought, ” I am not even the mind”
After 15 minutes of meditation as I opened my eyes, my son hugged me and I really felt blissful from within..
I.am aware that such dark moments will keep coming and the external factors causing distress will not change…However I am hoping my way of dealing with them will change slowly and I will begin to handle the stress peacefully with courage,maybe even a little humour and dignity.
So whenever you feel low, just close your eyes and concentrate on your breathing. And surround yourself with people you love coz there is nothing more uplifting than knowing you are appreciated and loved by the people who mean the world to you.....
HAVE A BLESSED DAY!!!!
