Do you feel that?
That gnawing sense of incompleteness
that is telling you that you are not enough?
Not good enough. Not pretty enough.
Not smart enough. Not thin enough.
Not “whatever” enough.
We all have that critic who lives inside of us.
No matter if you have become entranced by societal angst, anger, shame, fear, sadness or depression, self-loathing, or any other number of states that do not support your higher purpose, there is a way out.
The key to breaking these trances and dispelling such critiques lies in presence of the mind, body, and soul.
Meditation is an ancient practice stemming back to 1500 BCE and is tool for training the mind, becoming present, cultivating compassion, and stepping outside of the story to better understand ourselves and the world around us.
Buddhists call the untrained mind the “monkey mind” as it is constantly swinging forward into the future and back into the past, rarely experiencing the present moment.
This is where much of suffering stems from.
Anxiety and fear are states that are most often projected on future events that may never come to be, ultimately causing undue stress.
Shame and depression are typically derived from past events that cannot be changed.
Presence and concentration are the key to breaking these trances, coming to the present moment where most troubles do not actually exist, and seeing these feelings for what they truly are; states.
Over the past 49 years, I have guided thousands of individuals in learning to pick up this powerful yet simple tool to awaken to the present moment and live a more heartfelt and peaceful life of presence, compassion, and understanding.
