Is Your Mind Driving You Crazy?

buddha

John Cali

Buddha once said “The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.”

Until I started meditating many years ago, my mind really was driving me crazy. I can still get distracted, but I’ve found meditation to be a powerful tool for quieting my mind—and body too.

Our modern world holds many distractions. This is not necessarily a bad thing. Many of those “distractions” serve us well. The problem is, especially with the internet, we have all these things literally at our fingertips 24 hours a day.

I don’t know about you, but I need to take a break from technology now and then. I could not do this work I love without technology, but it’s refreshing to just turn off my computer and have some quiet time to myself—to meditate and to just be in the present moment.

Here’s Spirit.

Spirit

Being fully present in each moment of your lives is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, and others. Your presence is truly a gift.

We realize your modern world can be a very distracting place. All the more reason to practice presence—full presence in every moment of your waking awareness.

Obviously you are physically present in all your waking and sleeping moments. But how often is your mind, your focus off somewhere else?

All you really have is the present moment. All of what you call past and future, all of your life, all of your reality are contained in the present moment.

So you might as well be there—fully, consciously, deliberately.

You owe it to yourself to be here now, in every moment. You owe it to your loved ones.

You will find yourself more relaxed and at peace in more and more of your waking moments. You will be happier and healthier.

And, odd as it may sound, you will find linear time becoming more expansive. You will accomplish more in less time.

Those are only a few of the many benefits and blessings you will gain from such a simple thing as being fully present. Be fully present in the moment—every moment.

Many folks tell me they have a hard time meditating. Often it’s because they have a distorted notion of what meditation really is. In its simplest form, meditation is just being in the present moment. Deepak Chopra explains this clearly in a short video:

In the early 1980s John took a spiritual development course, and was introduced to his first spirit guide, Lydia. After Lydia arrived, three other guides also came to him: Archangel Michael, Tamarra, and Chief Joseph. Today these are John’s four main guides.

Besides his four main ones, John has various other guides. The entire group is really a multidimensional collective consciousness. John refers to the entire group simply as “Spirit.”
