The experience of your mind is the experience of your life!
It’s so nice to be back in New Zealand.
We’ve received incredible support in Europe by old and new friends without whom teaching overseas would not be possible.
I witnessed people transforming with the practices of yoga and meditation, and I am not surprised, because these techniques are highly effective when applied regularly — transforming lives from the inside out.
Some participants have asked me how I’ve been able to listen to so many of people’s problems throughout my teaching life. It is very simple. My own teacher has shown me how to grow roots inside — so I can connect better with the outside.
Which brings us to today’s topic…
I never saw a seed sprout without first growing some roots.
As the roots move deeper, the plant grows wider— strong and beautiful.
We find the clues for proper freedom within two aspects of our lives— The inner and the outer… the leaves and the roots.
The inner aspect can be known and experienced by the use of Meditation, a practice that has become widely misunderstood by the general culture—
When your eyes are closed, the mind can still run to the kitchen.
So remember that internalization does not depend on having your eyes closed.
Meditation is learning how to internalize with an objective vision, a way of seeing the restless mind and how it interferes with our attention.
Learning and utilizing proper internalization is of prime importance in bringing us to the discovery of the inner space.
Only from within can we change our perspective towards the external.
Many people in this world are trying to find the solution by going out through the senses… yet, we are discovering that being constantly externalized can quickly turn into a prison of frustrations and growing confusion.
While from our inner space we can realize that the bombarding conditions of life are no longer a threat to our peace and progress.
In short, the mind becomes our tool and stops acting as our master.
Therefore, learning how to internalize is the way to gradually begin applying deep relaxation, peace and efficiency to our everyday lives.
Remember, that the way Out— is by going In.
Wishing you an ‘in’sightful October,
