I’ve been slow on the blogging, mostly because I’ve hit a coasting speed and haven’t had anything earth-shattering come up, and also because life has been what it is, and has left little room for blogging.
However, I ran across this little gem of an article, and am feeling quite satisfied with my spiritual path.
I knew a guy a few years ago who had major stress and anxiety problems, and pretty much cured them through meditation. This article brings up some pretty familiar concepts, such as detachment from material desires, self-knowledge, and “being with” yourself. It’s interesting how these ideas are becoming more and more mainstream.
I also feel that the article does a really good job of articulating why finding my place, spiritually, is so important. I had a really rotten day on Tuesday, and I came home baffled at my “misfortune.” When I examined it a little closer, I realized that I had not spent time meditating or doing a daily puja (I’m trying to work out morning exercise and it’s throwing my schedule off) in several days. I made the time to do those things Wednesday morning, and have had a much better week since! I should know by now that my life runs more smoothly when I involve God in it (God’s always involved, but it helps me to remember that).
So enjoy the article, the fruits of meditation, and what’s left of your Friday!
