In today's post, I have decided to do something different. Instead of starting with my morning meditation and then taking you guys through my day, I have decided to do a review on how TM has helped me in coping with my break up so far. I know some of you out there are going through a grief much worst than mine. Some may be facing a bigger much worst circumstances than I am that I cannot even begin to imagine. Through sharing my experience with TM I hope it can make you face your situation better and keep your spirits up like how it is doing to me.
To me, TM is god send! Compared to the first few days of my break up, these days I am waking up with a smile feeling grateful for whatever good things that are in my life right now. I am also walking around with this calmness and assurance that everything is going to be all right. I have a new found faith in god, I walk around knowing that the promises he put i my heart he will bring it to pass, in his own way and on his time. I stopped worrying about how or when it is going to happen, I realise that all I have to do is be in the moment and enjoy myself in the now. Previously, I can only read these statements but I cannot feel or act it, but now with TM, everything is different. Despite the situation I am in I can find the humour in things. I walk around with my eyes open. Open to the beauty of god's creation. Suddenly the trees, the sky, the animals look more beautiful. The colours of everything around me is more vivid. I find people smiling at me for no apparent reason. I am more forgiving and I do not take bad situations personally anymore. I am able to laugh things off. Work stress seems so much more manageable. There is this nagging thought that everything will fall beautifully in place. It is certainly easier facing challenging circumstances with TM . It is not even that difficult to do. Just 20 minutes, 2 times a day and your life becomes so much better.
I am also beginning to feel more for others. just more than a week ago, I was the most selfish human being on the planet. Everything is about me, me , me, me. My problem, my break up, my grief. Now when I start my prayers, I pray for others. Hence, this blog.
If you are facing a difficult or a trying time, try Transcendental Meditation. Give it a try, keep your heart and mind open. I pray that it will help you in your difficult time as it does me. Now, compared to a few days ago, I have more positive thoughts than negative ones. Even when negative thoughts try to creep in I could manage it well. I can replace them with positivity easily. I find that I am doing more and more things from the heart, except for my work, which I am performing more efficiently but still not as sincerely as I should. The world seems like a better place and the pain has disappeared for most part of the day( until the effect of TM wears off, however it seems to last all day these days).
These days, at certain moments I have these awareness that everything is connected. That is all I can say about that. I shall elaborate more when I understand what this is. TM has no doubt improved my memory and I have more clarity and organised thoughts. I am beginning to pay my attention to my intuition, will update you if this is going well. I am still new at the whole intuition thing. Not sure if I am identifying it correctly.
I am certainly a changed person.
