On Seeking The Silence
Within every obstacle there is an equivalent or greater benefit.~Napoleon Hill
How would it feel if you rose to each obstacle with calm determination...completely free of anxiety and depression...ready to face each challenge with a smile?
How would it feel to look in the mirror and see yourself as unstoppable, invincible, and even a force of nature?
This can be much more than an exercise in imagination. You can experience this level of personal power and the profound sense of accomplishment that comes with it--and you can accomplish it through meditation.
When you meditate you slow down all your autonomic responses. You cut the fight or flight switch. You watch your anxiety, and remain detached. You watch your depression, and remain apart. The one with the life issue, the one with the sorrow, is not the one who watches the play of emotions.
In meditation, a watcher personality emerges, a consciousness that transcends the world, a vast spaciousness, a void that is paradoxically full.
If your agitation is strong, you may have to sit for a while, then, slowly and inevitably, you're forced to lose your grip on panic.
When this happens, when you're no longer living the problem, something shifts inside you and you find yourself still enough to see your own greatness.
In this vast stillness of your own beingness, you can plant the seed of your new desire, and replace the sorrowful event with its exact opposite.
Every tragedy in our life is an invitation to expand beyond the limitations that it sets upon us, and what you find is that you are indeed unstoppable, invincible, and even a force of nature.
