California, Costa Rica, Aruba, Ireland; these are few places I’ve been fortunate enough to have explored. They allowed me to leave my troubles at home, while offering beautiful landscapes. However, there is one place I explore daily that is unlike the rest: my vast internal vista. A place inside my mind where stillness awaits and tranquility washes over me. The good news? WE ALL HAVE ACCESS TO ONE! It’s free and it holds all of your answers. You can check in at anytime and it will never betray you.
This is what I’ve learned during the infancy of my mediation practice. It’s only 18 months old, but it has given me more than I could’ve ever dreamed.
Through meditation I’ve gained access to a destination that improves my life each time I visit. It has unearthed space within me that I didn’t know was available. This space provides clarity, calmness, and has allowed me to flow where my internal current is pulling me.
Just recently, I was going through one of those rough patches life likes to dish out. I felt stuck in a mundane routine, and my light had faded. I needed to plug into my internal vista, and go on an excursion in search of guidance. It was there, that I discovered what was ailing me – FEAR. Fear is an intrinsic part of being human, and can be nefarious. Ignored for too long, it had begun to control me, and I was letting fear be the compass of my life. I had to take the wheel in order to regain my own alignment.
It was through meditation that I made a truce with fear. There is no use for it right now. I’m currently headed in a new direction, to an unknown destination, with peace by my side as my finest ally.
