Ultimately meditation is about stepping into the silence of your own self so we can hear the quiet whisper of our hearts. Meditation provides a pathway for connection to our intuitive intelligence. From this place of being we know who we are and we know what we want.
How can we begin to listen to these subtle impulses when we are confronted by the many stimuli on TV? How can we truly hear when we need to pay attention to the road in front of us while running? Just because one can be mindful while walking or listening to music doesn’t mean it’s meditation. Meditation requires stillness and most people are afraid of this. But why? What could possibly happen to you in the silence? You are only sitting with yourself after all.
