Can you even read that line without singing along? (sorry Millennials, look it up on you tube)
I love John Lennon. Really, I do. He was my imaginary boyfriend in the 4th grade. Oh jeez, that's wrong. It was Paul McCartney. I love Paul and John. Really I do.
I digress. I wanted to talk about meditation! How are these related you ask? It's the revolution thing. I interviewed Chad Foreman (fb/Meditation Masters) for my recent telesummit. He talked about Meditation being a current revolution. It's a revolution of the mind. We are beginning to find that our over-scheduled, constantly connected, monkey minds need a break. Everyone is doing it and it's more than just a fad. Researchers are publishing more studies everyday that tout the beneficial effects of this ancient practice. Even meditating a few minutes a a day grows the gray matter in your brain. It normalizes blood pressure, reduces the level of stress hormones, relieves muscle tension, improves sleep, relieves anxiety, decreases depression, and generates optimism and self esteem. Celebrities are doing it, politicians, sports figures, CEO's and kids. Are you? NO? Why not?
One of these?
I can't stop thinking...It's too difficult..I'm too busy..I'm too stressed...I'm not spiritual...It will compromise my 'edge"...I'm not a pretzel...I'm not shaving my head or buying crystals...it's kinda weird...
All of these excuses are just that, excuses and frankly not true. Why are you listening to that overworked busy brain that often times gives you bad advice? With all the crap that's going on in there clearly you can't trust it to be on point all the time.
I'm inviting you to join the Mediation Revolution. No uniforms, secret passwords or danger. I'm offering peace, calm, spaciousness, relaxation, joy, compassion, purpose and love. But most of all quiet and an opportunity to connect with the one beneath your thoughts in the silent space of your soul.
You say you want a revolution...we all want to change the world. Like Ghandi said "Be the change you wish to see in the world".
Now there's a revolution.
