i have a friend back in SC who is going through a really hard time. i have council led in the past on the importance of meditation and how i think it may help him turn off the noise that is constantly filling his head. several times he has tried, and been unsuccessful in actually feeling like meditation is benefiting him. this evening i received an email from him, sharing how this weekend something clicked for him and he was able to sit still in silence for 10 minutes, and that his mind was totally clear and his worries seemed to melt away. he shared that after his first successful attempt on friday, he woke saturday feeling refreshed and less stressed. he gave it a try again saturday and sunday and is feeling amazing results.
meditation has been amazing in doing just that for me. it allows me to turn off all the negative and positive thoughts in my mind just for a few minutes and feel the power of the present. his email reminded me that i need to practice what i preach and find the time each day to clear my mind and just be still.
