Meditation is the one practice that will not fail you. No matter what is going on in your outer life, you'll find peace of mind in meditation. Why?
Meditation requires stillness. And in the physical immobility the mind and emotions have more of a chance to calm down, too. What happens is that our native peace arises and lays out the format to absorb stress in its spongy cushion of quietude.
When I'm having a hard time making sense of a problem or events around me, I withdraw into my inner sanctum for meditation. In the inner room I find the answers that I need, to find my place in the cyclone of events swirling in the waking world.
It is by finding my place and holding on to ethical living that I can slip into the groove that will lead me to the proper goal.
Action has reaction in kind. It snowballs for better or worse. When we choose to follow the path for the highest good of the situation and all concerned, we retain our peace of mind and ability to clearly think through problems.
When in doubt about the direction to follow, take time to meditate. Consider the options that come to mind and choose that which feels harmonious. Peace is too precious to knock aside by acting selfishly, and causing disturbance to those affected.
To review: When faced with a problem and unsure what action to take, sit in a quiet place and meditate. Allow options to surface in your mind, then after meditation record them in your journal for review and action. And, live an ethical life to preserve your sense of harmony.
