Spiritual Practices48jUMwqGM | April 13, 2020 | 0 | Mind Journey
Spiritual is based on the premise that we live in this world,but we are not from it.Many of our problems lie in not understanding our fundamental identity. We are not human beings having spiritual experiences,we are spiritual beings having human experience.It’s impossible to realize this principle theoretically. We can attend hundreds of lectures and reday volumes of books;but this is inadequate without us committing to a spiritual practice,or Sadhana as it is known in Sanskrit.
Spiritual practice is the foundation of our happiness. It guides us in times of turmoil and grounds us in times of joy.
The simplest way to explain spiritual practice is to describe the hierarchy of connections. At any moment,we can be making three kinds of connections:
Outside ourselves: The majority of our time is spent in connecting with the world–networking ,relationships,our work.It’s all crucial,but can lead us astray if we have no inner direction. The fear of missing out ,thinking that the grass is greener elsewhere,and living a life out of balance are all symptoms of having incorrectly prioritized happiness outside of ourselves.
Inside Ourselves: Beyond our everyday lives,many look for solace within.People struggling with life,those trying to work on themselves to conquer the external world,those curious about their inner world,and occasionally,a few of those seeking the truth-these are the types of people who will take the journey within.
I practice Mantra Meditation. This means I spend some time focusing my mind or sacred sounds,chanting the name of God,by which we can free ourselves of anxiety. Modern science recognizes the huge benefits of mediation:relieving us of stress ,giving us a sense of purpose,thus enabling us to become more creative,amongst many other benefits. However,ancient eastern literature give us deeper insight.
Meditation is like a plane:It first takes you high,then far away and then further away imperceptibly. I see meditation like a plane because when you take off ,you immediately start gaining altitude.
We experience worry and anxiety in life because we take things out of perspective.
Meditation enables us to look down at all our anxieties,problems and worries though a higher vantage-point ,thus giving us a great sense of peace and calmness.
Meditation becomes difficult because of our mind.It is said that the mind is like a restless monkey,always jumping from one thought to another. It does not become peaceful just because you say so.It needs to be controlled.
There are many ways to connect to God.We may have our own ,which is great and we should go deeper into it.One of the most effective methods that has worked really well for me is mantra meditation
