Attitude and Meditation Make a Difference
When we keep a positive attitude and meditate regularly, we are more likely to see good solutions.
A simple chore is boring to some and joyful to others. How can this be? The action performed is the same. The difference lies in one's attitude.
When performing actions with only thoughts of how we alone will benefit, we don't find lasting peace, contentment, happiness. Self-centeredness causes our mind to continually think of ways to please itself. No feelings of joy are felt because the whims of the mind preoccupy our time.
A caring attitude with those around us brings up our heart feelings, as a warmness we feel in our body, and in our uplifted, expanded attitude.
When we perform our daily work with the attitude of caring, we feel good. The attitude of caring draws energy into our body. The more caring we become, building up our level of happiness, the more we see the wisdom of our positive actions.
Meditation is the quiet time we spend with our permanent self. It is an attitude of being open to self-improvement. The more we meditate, the more comfortable we become with our eternal self and role in the universe, improving relations with all.
In deep meditation we forget for a while that we are occupying a physical body while on earth - we get to break free and enjoy eternal bliss right at the moment.
After a period of time, the feeling of bliss creeps out from meditation and stays with us. That is the wonderful blessing of meditation.
Meditation to us imparts
Bliss seeping up
From deep in our heart.
