Discovering your authentic self

The key to a blissful life filled with love and peace is to live a life true to yourself. With the conditioning of modern society and the pressures of our daily grind to make a living, our minds get consumed by the lifestyle society expects from us. Where we live, what car we drive, what clothes we wear, what we eat, how we behave is all determined by society’s standards. To be truly free, we have to release ourselves from society’s expectations.
The only way to discover your true self and to receive direction in our lives is to clear our minds from all our worries and anxieties. A simple life, free from all the complications of modern society, will enable us to live a joyful life. To attain clarity on the path we have to follow, we need to fill our minds with positive energy and to the only way to achieve this, is to take time out of our busy lives, surround us with nature and meditate on what really makes us happy.
Meditation is the most powerful practice in the world. There are many things in life that are beyond our control. However, it is possible to take responsibility for our own states of mind – and to change them for the better. Meditation is the most important thing we can do and it is the only real antidote to our own personal sorrows, and to the anxieties, fears, hatreds, and general confusions that beset the human condition.
Meditation is a means of transforming the mind. Meditation practices are techniques that encourage and develop concentration, clarity, emotional positivity, and a calm seeing of the true nature of things. By engaging with a particular meditation practice you learn the patterns and habits of your mind, and the practice offers a means to cultivate new, more positive ways of being. With regular work and patience these nourishing, focused states of mind can deepen into profoundly peaceful and energized states of mind. Meditation has a transformative effect and can lead to a new understanding of life.
There are many different meditation techniques, but all meditation has one common goal – to rid our minds of fears and anxieties, to bring us to a state of calmness and peace and when our minds our calm, intuitive revelations on how we should live our lives will manifest itself. If you’re new to meditation, start off slowly, remember it is a process. Start off by taking just a few minutes in the morning for yourself. Find a quiet place, where you won’t be disturbed and just concentrate on your breathing. Imagine on every inward breath that you’re inhaling peace and happiness and every outward breath that you’re exhaling al your fears, anxieties and darkness in your life.

From this simple start you will naturally progress to a deeper form of meditation and you will receive clarity on the path you should follow. You will discover your purpose in life and what you should do to make this world a better place for every living creature.
