We often talk about how a daily meditation habit can bring with it some great health benefits, such as less stress, beating anxiety and depression, and curing insomnia. One benefit that can easily be overlooked in all the medical research however, is inner peace.
Practicing meditation can bring with it a sense of inner peace and contentment. But unless you make it a regular habit, it can easily be a roller coaster ride of ups and downs…
You might have been to a meditation retreat, only to find yourself getting a punch in the face when you went back to “the real world”. In the same way sitting down for some days of meditation power sessions can do wonders, but only short lived bliss.
Now, mind you – don’t picture yourself as a GURU, always in a state of bliss and full of inner peace!
What I am talking about is that regular meditation makes it easier to get back to center, and “refocus” – and act from there.
In a hectic work or school environment, acting from a calm center is not always easy. But meditation can help us “take a step back”, be silent for a little moment, breathe deeply and get back in touch with that center.
So next time you find yourself in a hectic or stressful environment that can prompt some bad actions, see if you can take a step back and just be silent for a little bit while breathing and closing your eyes (if the situation permits).
Then take it from there..!
“The more regularly and the more deeply you meditate, the sooner you will find yourself acting always from a center of inner peace.”
– Swami Kriyananda
Do you find it hard to always act from a center of inner peace?
