Connie’s motivational quote today is by, ~ Buddha
“Buddha was asked, “What have you gained from meditation?”
He replied, “Nothing! However, Buddha said, let me tell you what I lost: Anger, Anxiety, Depression, Insecurity, Fear of Old age and Death.”
If Buddha is correct, then meditation should be a tool that is easily utilized, to help us let go of these negative emotions, that aren’t serving us in our lives. So why isn’t it so easy?
Zen, Meditation and intuition are words we hear with such frequency but not sure if we all know how to tap into our intuition to create a Zen like existence in all areas of our lives. Does this description make you visualize a Buddha monk in silent meditation; with nothing around him but a sand garden, beautiful lush green trees and of course a gentle babbling brook or some other gentle water sound in the background? Are all these items needed to set the proper mood for deep meditation? Do you any of you have these elements, at your fingertips, so you too can mediate like a Buddha monk? Of course the answer for most of us is no.
So how do we create Zen in our life and bring the peace and tranquility that meditation provides while existing in our ridiculously busy, stress filled lives?
