Sitting in my office this morning, back to a warm radiator with a great cup of coffee in hand. The fiancee has nabbed a bargain on eBay buying one of these fancy pants coffee machines that do it all for you, grind the beans, heat the cup, I think it will even drink it for you if you’re in a hurry.
Love it. Coffee fuels industry.
There was a time when I thought coffee was the devil’s drink. Not quite the devil, but you know what I mean - I thought it wasn’t a good thing.
I thought it was bad because everything I had read regarding meditation and yoga and all things spiritual and all the people on the internet who were the same said “herbal tea”.
Herbal tea this, goji berries that, gluten free everything.
And herbal tea is alright, actually. But I won’t go near those berries.
The point is: I wonder how many people don’t meditate because of the herbal tea idea?
The idea that they have to change something about themselves in order to be involved or to get it.
The truth is that the giving up of anything isn’t necessary, at all.
Sure, you make changes and arrangements to practice, but whatever you do needs to work for you.
Meditation should be a simple practice to reveal the best version of yourself to yourself.
To allow you to be mentally “fitter”, more resilient, more fluid, more able to focus and let go when required.
How much simpler can I make it?
Great efficiency and effectiveness comes from that. Great peace and happiness too.
You may make changes in your life - but only because you want to, not cos you “have” to.
In fact, the only thing you need to be willing to give up is limitation itself.
ie: The ideas and concepts and beliefs that you hold in your head that stop you from fully enjoying each and every moment.
OK? So don’t hold onto an idea that meditation needs to involve anything else.
You don’t need to drink herbal tea if you don’t want to.
You don’t need to chant or burn incense or sit on the floor.
I personally make myself a little nest on the couch with my blankie.
It’s got to be something that’s enjoyable, something that you look forward to doing.
For me sitting on the floor meant meditation was something I was glad was over … but you may be different.
So enjoy - enjoy each and every moment.
Of course my meditation weekend will be extremely enjoyable.
We’ll cut through the nonsense and get to the heart of the matter for you, giving you the exact tools and understanding you need to rise above all limitation and stress.
