Meditation, It’s So Much More Than Relaxation!

For sure, meditation achieves many of the health benefits as relaxation: decreased blood pressure, reduced stress, treatment of insomnia, and so on. However, there is one fundamental difference between meditation and relaxation: meditation has a dynamic component of awakening that is not found in relaxation.
Meditation is about overcoming all mental limitations and discovering the giant inside – raising the voltage of consciousness.
In everyone’s life there are special moments when, perhaps under the pressure of external circumstances, the mind becomes unusually acute and clear, thoroughly focused, rooted in the here and now. The senses are sharp and precise. In a silent knowing of yourself, you draw from inner resources that are normally out of reach.
Suddenly, life has meaning. You feel AWAKE. Meditation, the inward path of awakening is independent of outer circumstances. Thought processes become fluid and speed up. The heart flourishes. Extreme life – a continuum of peace that is beyond anything the ordinary mind can comprehend. A completely new world opens in front of you. You are.
Moments like these are to the ordinary life what the waking state is to sleep – hence awakening.
Join us for a talk on the power of awakening and how meditation can transform you and the life you’re living.
