How to Live

Each of us has our own unique path.

In the Vedic Tradition, we say that each individual has their own dharma, their own purpose and role within the process of Evolution.

The more we live our own dharma, the more frictionless life is.

So when we experience less friction, that’s how we know we’re on the right path.

Frictionless does not mean non-action or non-effort. In fact, there can be quite a bit of activity involved. However, it is performed in an inspirational way.

As meditators, we locate our path through the mechanism of following charm. Charm does not require ratification from our intellect. Instead, it is something we detect on the intuitive level.

Rearranging Reality

Reality is not weak. It is our perception of it that is weak.
Specifically, it is a weakness of perception that yields anything other than Unity, or Oneness.

A wave is already connected to the Ocean. The Ocean is the source of the wave. Without the Ocean, the wave simply wouldn’t exist.

Ignorance and Realization

Whether through accumulated stress or the mechanism of social conditioning, we may have become habituated to the practice of ignoring subtle changes.

Meditation: The Coherent State

Luckily we don’t have to take steroids in order to improve our brain functioning. Regular meditation is all the juice we need.

When water boils, the water molecules move helter-skelter, quite rapidly. But when water freezes, the molecules arrange themselves into that near-perfect, matrix-like crystalline structure we call ice. De-excitation – in this case induced through the cooling process – gives rise to greater orderliness.

Meditation: The Problem with Transcendence

Everyone who learns Vedic or Transcendental Meditation loves the experience of transcendence (where no more thoughts are entered into the head and you are just sitting in pure silence, contentment, and bliss without reacting to internal or external influencers). It’s new, it’s different, and actually quite unique. It seems like the more we meditate, the more transcendence we should experience.

But there is a problem with transcendence.

Finding Our Edge. . . Finding My Edge

 Many times people run away from feelings or emotions that are confronting. Fearing judgement from others. Fearing judgement toward one’s self. In the developed world, we are conditioned to blindly shuffle from one indoor task to another without taking time to lift our heads and make eye contact or physical connection; without putting down our forks in between chews, without questioning why we must have Monday office meetings or obey silly laws or eat the food given to us. We are taught to stop crying, stop feeling, and suppress our emotions that help us to understand the truth within ourselves. We keep minds and bodies busy to avoid the awkward silences that may challenge us to be alone with ourselves. That is confronting. Silence. Cause then we would have to perhaps face our own demons that hold us back from growth, authenticity, truth and imperfection

The Whole Purpose of Meditation

Every thought we have is a stream of energy and intelligence. We know thoughts are energy because they can be measured as electrical impulses via an electroencephalogram (EEG).  And, we know thoughts have intelligence because each one is about something very specific.

Too Much Thinking

Present moment awareness is a state of Being and not a state of the intellect.

In fact, countless amounts of suffering are caused by one common condition: too much thinking.

One who is living pure Being (one result of a stress free physiology) doesn’t wonder, doesn’t speculate, and doesn’t hatch contingency plans.

When we truly live in the present moment, action occurs spontaneously and in accordance with the need of the time. It is action which promotes the greatest Evolution to the whole.
