Why the Army are learning to meditate

I love my life.

Just had a fine weekend - taught a Bright Path Ishayas’ Ascension course to a full house.

I love knowing that it doesn’t even matter how well I teach - if someone practices the techniques they are going to have so much come to them.

An end to struggle, stress, self doubt and self-sabotage?

I’m not sure what could be better than living life without such a load.

Ascension just gives you everything you need to rise above all of this, so simply, so effortlessly, it’s ridiculous.

This morning I’m getting ready for another course, one that I’m super excited about.

Jumped on a train last night, and here I am in Kent.

I have three days with the British Army - some bomb disposal guys are coming in for some time.

You think you have a stressful job?

If you’ve ever seen the movie “The Hurt Locker” you might have an idea of what stress is.

I’m excited because I know if these guys practice what I teach, they will come to a place where they have some tools and develop some habits so they can stay cool and clear regardless what they’re faced with.

There was some stats a while back that suggested there were more deaths amongst soldiers from suicide than in combat.

I don't know why this is so, but I know where ever there is stress, Ascension will help.

It doesn't make problems go away, it just makes things clearer. It puts things in perspective.

If someone were to keep practicing - and I've seen this in so many people over the years - the continued growth in clarity and perspective means that stress can become a choice.

Problems become challenges, not stress inducing nightmares.

How wonderful.

I’m excited because meditation has been used for literally thousands of years and finally we’re starting to catch up.

I’ll tell you all about it later when we’re done.

Til then just know, just have it as a possibility in your mind that stress could be optional.

Struggle could be needless.

You can have everything you want, and be free of all suffering, any anguish, any stress at all.

Wouldn’t that be nice?
