Meditation Class Follow Up
Know that with a steady practice of meditation you’ll notice the benefits of meditation unfolding before your eyes.
I received an email from an attendee at the Chopra Center who took Primordial Sound Meditation at La Costa. He emailed me and said he still had an “overly busy” mind in meditation and expected his mind to truly quiet down after a couple of months of practice. He was relieved to hear he wasn’t doing anything incorrectly and that having lots of thoughts actually equals lots of stress release. Your meditations, like mine, will often be quite busy and that’s OK.

Some quotes on meditation:
“The most direct and consistent way that I know to bring peace into every aspect of your individuality is through the regular practice of meditation. Take time on a daily basis to quiet your mind and calm your body. This helps you take peace beyond a mood you are trying to maintain to your essential state of being.” David Simon, M.D.
“Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It is a way of entering into the quiet that is already there -buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day.” Deepak Chopra, M.D.
“The secrets of the Universe are only secrets to the noisy mind. So meditation practice is simply about making enough quiet space inside to allow the wisdom of the ages, all the peace that surpasses understanding, to flow through us freely. It’s a slow, steady, process of opening and emptying, in the faith that when we make ourselves ready, our own completeness will be right here – and has been here within us all our lives.” Bo Lozoff, We’re All Doing Time.
