3 Highly Effective Meditation Tips for School and Office
- 14 February 2022
When we choose a spiritual path and dare to speak about it, this question is often thrown our way. It is because many assume that spirituality and material life are polar opposites.
Meditation is not an exercise in a closed room, in a lotus position. It is gaining full control of your mind, of your gross and subtle sense perceptions so in every interaction you influence every situation by creating a gap between action and response, not the other way round.
3 ways in which spirituality/meditation prepares us for success in material life.
1. Self care because you cannot serve others from an empty vessel
2. Inward focus clears the clutter in your mind and allows you to discern between right and wrong, good and bad making you an astute decision maker
3. We overcome the tendency to judge, criticize, compare and complain. This makes us effortlessly solution oriented and gives us the ability to separate the action from the doer.
So spiritual people don’t go and live in isolation in forests, they lead big organizations, create strong supportive work cultures and enable everyone around them.
