The Meditation and Mindfulness Movement is really picking up Momentum. Davidji quotes Lao Tzu saying, “When I let go of Who I am, I become Who I might be.” What a relief! As an American- I (Who I am) and my fellow weird ones are becoming much more relaxed about expressing who we are, our organic essence. It’s amazing what happens when we Breathe. You are reading one of the perks of this becoming (Who I might be). I find myself being more and more in the world than of the world. That is something that had confounded me for decades.
The year started with the MINDFUL REVOLUTION cover of TIME magazine (2014Jan23). In the following months Science tallied hypothetical, statistical, empirical, categorical type data with analysis ongoing. Initial findings indicate potential limitless beneficial consequences in adopting a meditation practice. The evidence is overwhelming. Our brains improve. We become Mindful. The simple act of sitting quietly and comfortably for a few minutes a day and breathing… Breathe In/Breathe Out, returning our focus back to – breathe… breathe… breathe… we’re mindful. We find ourselves noticing and comprehending much more. Our creativity is sparked, and that is always a wonderful thing! — The year ends on a high note with Anderson Cooper presenting a ’60 Minutes’ segment on meditation and mindfulness. Andy Kelly aka The Boston Buddha and United States Congressman Tim Ryan are outspoken teachers and advocates, encouraging everyone to develop and benefit from a daily mindfulness practice. Andy explains that meditating 20 minutes a day is ideal in cultivating mindfulness. Being mindful has enormous benefits for our entire country, and the world. We are redefining the mainstream.
Our Millennial/Gen-Y’ers and their children are at an advantage. Meditation and mindfulness, along with the realization that energy flows where attention goes, offers huge potential for us. Even though there may seem a lot of ugliness surfacing at the moment, the mass consciousness is evolving. From outrage and helplessness into anger and frustration, that’s a step up! We know better now. Cultivating a meditation practice makes way for us to continue the relief process. It allows us to engage genuine well-being into every category of life. That shift is happening now. A quantum leap is in the works.
We are coming together as a People. We are attracting and aligning. We are bright forward thinkers. We appreciate a peaceful world. We believe in kindness. We are the river carving out the canyon. And, we’re picking up momentum doing it one drop, one person, one breathe at a time. We are becoming a Meditation Nation. It’s only natural.
