Putting something in new words and painting a new perspective of it, can work wonders on how we view something. Just read how Deepak Chopra turns meditation from being about quieting the mind, to be all about “entering into the quiet that is already there”…
“Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It is a way of entering into the quiet that is already there — buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day.”
– Deepak Chopra
Now 50,000 thoughts – that’s a LOT of thoughts!
Don’t believe it? Just try and sit down and count your thoughts for just 1 minute, and then see how many thoughts pop up.
Deepak hints that the quiet we are seeking is already there, but it has to compete for our attention. And our thoughts are winning that battle day in and day out.
The wonderful thing about meditation is that a regular practice helps us both “tap into the quiet” for some well deserved “me time”, and with regular practice also makes it easier to think less and “just be” more.
Sounds great? Start tapping into your quiet today!
