In today’s episode, we talk about how to become a Zen Master. We will touch upon the importance of being present in the moment, accepting who you are NOW and how to set a clear goal so you can grow moving forward.
The Power Of Meditation
I have been meditating for over 5 years now. I started doing it exactly at the time when I discovered fasting. I found that these two strategies work really well together if you want to make some serious changes in your life.
Just like fasting is a detox for your body, meditation is a cleanse for your mind.
I firmly believe that human beings need to incorporate various forms of cleansing in their lives regularly. As we live our lives in this crazy fast-paced world, we get stressed out from the constant information overload and this issue needs to be addressed.
Why do I need to meditate?
To put it simply, to be present in the moment. That being said, it’s a tricky concept.
Why you might ask? Well, as I’ve talked before, you are here to be a better person, right? You want to improve your body and mind, right? You want to build lasting relationships and move forward in life, yeah? So why would you be stuck in the present moment?
Well, the thing is that you need to first accept where you are and who you are NOW before you can move forward.
If you don’t live in the present moment, you will always be looking out in the future and never satisfied with what you already have.
This is something you will learn once you start meditating.
You will see thoughts come and go. You will see all the noise in your head. As you get better you will learn to filter out that noise and get some headspace.
How do I start?
If you are a total beginner and you don’t know anything about meditation,
I suggest you try the Headspace app.
I’ve used it for about 4 years straight and it has been my go-to app for silencing my mind and getting to know myself better. I strongly recommend that you start with this app as its created by a former monk who really knows what he’s doing.
What you will learn when you first start meditating is proper breathing.
