Tune in

Tune in

Since a few years I meditate and I truly love it. For me it’s the gap in time where I’m fully aware of life at its best and where I’m connected with all there is …

Deepak Chopra, one of my great teachers, defines meditation as tuning in and getting in touch with it all:

Everyone thinks that the purpose of meditation is to handle stress, to tune out, to get away from it all. While that’s partially true, the real purpose of meditation is actually to tune in, not to get away from it all, but to get in touch with it all. Not to just de-stress, but to find that peace within, the peace that spiritual traditions talk about that passes all understanding. So, meditation is a way to get in the space between your thoughts. You have a thought here, a thought here, and there’s little space between every thought.

According to wisdom traditions, this space between the thought is the window, is the corridor, is the vortex to the infinite mind – the mystery that some people call the spirit or God. We don’t have to use those terms, but it’s your core consciousness. And the more we learn about this space between thoughts, we find certain things to be true of it:

  • It’s a field of infinite possibilities – infinite possibilities, pure potentiality.
  • Everything is connected to everything else.
  • It’s a space of infinite creativity, infinite imagination.
  • It is a place where there is something called the observer effect, or the power of intention, which means intention is very powerful when brought to this space and it orchestrates its own fulfillment – what people call the law of attraction – so those are wonderful qualities of your own spirit.

In meditation, we get into this space so we find infinite possibilities, infinite correlation, infinite creativity, infinite imagination, and infinite power of intention. That’s what meditation is really about. ~ Deepak Chopra

Embrace the stillness

Fairytale Prague

We make a grave mistake to embrace the Extrovert Ideal so unthinkingly. Some of our greatest ideas, art and inventions ~ from the theory of evolution to van Gogh’s sunflowers to the personal computers ~ came from quiet and cerebral people who know how to tune in to their inner worlds and the treasures to be found there. Without introverts, the world would be devoid of:

  • the theory of gravity
  • the theory of relativity
  • W. B. Yeat’s The Second Coming
  • Chopin’s Nocturnes
  • Proust’s In Search of Lost Time
  • Peter Pan
  • Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty Four and Animal Farm
  • The Cat in the Hut
  • Charlie Brown
  • Schindler’s List, E. T. and Close Encounters of the Third Kind
  • Google
  • Harry Potter

[…]

I highly recommend Quiet. The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by great Susan Cain! Such a treasure that I’ve found in the lovely Shakespeare & Sons Bookstore in beautiful and magical Prague …

Mind the gap

Mind the gap

Pay attention to the gap — the gap between two thoughts, the brief, silent space between words in a conversation, between the notes of a piano or flute, or the gap between the in-breath and out-breath. ~ Eckhart Tolle

There always is something in between, simply try to focuse on that from time to time ~ to shapen your awareness.

It’s time to get still

Quiet days in Prague

It’s time to get still. It’s time to connect with YOURSELF, your inner wisdom, your inner loving guide through eternity.

Why?

That’s simple. Because it’s your birthright to know that YOU and ONLY YOU are the creator of YOUR OWN life ~ as Lao Tzu said:

Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

You may have read or heard that quote before ~ but do you know what it really means? Think about it ~ and enjoy the moment when you get still and listen …
