Recently, a friend and I were talking about meditation. He said:
“I don’t see why I would start meditating, I’ve lived this much of my life just fine without it.”
I realised that this might be how many people who haven’t integrated meditation into their lives are thinking about it.
If I offered you some cake, or a beer, (or pizza…), and you hadn't yet tried cake or beer (or lasagna…), so you decide to turn it down, (because after all, you’ve lived this long without it ;) ), your future self might be quite shocked! Your future self may try to communicate with you - as a distance voice in your head saying:
I believe that most of us are receiving just the tiniest percentage of the gifts the Universe has to offer.
The number one reason for this? We have such a hard time letting go. We are too often trying to be in control. And what happens when we are trying so hard to control a situation? We hold tight, we manipulate, we lose sight of being an observer and soon enough we can't see straight.
What happens when we let go? A space is created - a space for possibility. This openness to possibility allows us to communicate with the Universe.
