“There is only on way to maintain an unshakeable inner tranquility. We cannot think ourselves into that state; we cannot achieve it through the beauties of nature or music or art or other outer experiences, no matter how peaceful they make us feel. It comes only through deep, devolution-filled meditation that takes us beyond thought and emotion, anchoring us into the calm center of our being” - Sri Daya Mata, Intuition: Soul-Guidance for Life’s Decisions
I have been meditating more and more this month. It changes everything inside me when I do. However, It has taken me over a decade to embrace meditation as a tool that I can use all day long. I used to meditate for a few minutes every morning and every night. There is nothing wrong with that, in fact, it was a huge accomplishment for me! I just find that when I weave meditation into little moments throughout the day (the times when I would usually check my phone, but meditate instead), my whole day seems to flow with Grace (and when it’s not flowing, I can be more accepting of what is).
