This course may help you master the basics of meditation, covering the fundamentals of passive and active meditation to expand your creativity, improve your mental fitness and help you achieve your physical fitness goals.
Throughout the course it will be beneficial to understand that meditation is, at bottom, thinking. To meditate is to think for a prolonged period upon a subject of particular importance to you. There is in general, no need to adopt a yogi pose etc. You can meditate standing up, or just find a comfortable chair.
In the back of your mind keep these thoughts:
- Reality is what you think it is. You create your own experience of the world around you by the words you use to talk to others and yourself. Change the words you use – especially if you use critical words when you self-talk, and you will begin to change your experience of the world. Begin by making a list of affirmations to say out loud in the morning.
- Understand your limits. There are no real boundaries between you and your goals, your mind & body or between you and your nation. And when these things work in harmony, victory can be easily gained. But you should be humble in the face of nature. Each of us has had the ‘rules of the game’ set by our genetics, the inherited traits we gained from our parents. These include what we are physically capable of (strength, speed etc), and what we are mentally capable of (personality, intelligence and skill etc.). Knowing this can free us from the ‘perfectionist trap’.
- Energy goes to what you focus on. Those feelings and thoughts that occupy your mind form the foundation of what will happen in your life. If you focus on becoming fitter throughout your day, you have every chance of achieving that goal. If you give it some small though once in the morning, it is unlikely that you will get as far.
- The power of now. You cannot be bound by the past as you cannot change it, you only have the power of now to shape your future.
