Quiet time is often taken for granted. It was given to you to reflect on your life, and see what’s the next best move. The goal of meditation is to focus and quiet your mind, eventually reaching a higher level of awareness and inner calmness. Most people don’t understand true meditation. They think it’s some superficial practice that’s ineffective.
“Everyone meditates, but when you focus on it in silence, it’s loud and clear, instead of a whisper.”
I’m not saying meditation can solve all of your problems, but it can provide the answer. And those answers can motivate you to improve your life. Meditation heightens your awareness so that, for example, if you are in a crummy job or a lousy relationship, you may become so intensely aware of how bad you feel in the situation that you want to change it.
It may come as a surprise to learn that you can meditate anywhere and at any time. I believe in meditation happening naturally; not forced meditation. You don’t have to put your hands together or sit in a child like pose to meditate.
