In our world today, one where it feels like almost everything is uncertain, trusting feels difficult to do. Whether it's fearing for our safety as citizens or the bubbling anxiety over everyday decisions, it can be hard to trust that everything is unfolding how it's meant to.
"The thing about meditation is...you become more and more you."
It was about this time last year when the idea of Anchor came to me. I was driven by this deep desire to learn more about meditation after I noticed how a simple 10-minute at home practice made a huge difference in my sleep, my pain, my stress, my relationships, and my overall sense of well being.
But, a little something was missing. I needed a community to share my practice with.
"What if we recharged ourselves as often as we did our phones?"
There is power in quietness. In stillness. In pausing and reflecting.
In our world today, it's easy for us to constantly be on the go. We are often running from work to the gym to cooking dinner without a breather. And, when we finally have the chance to slow down, we are so drained from our constant movement - we don't have the energy to reflect.
So, here's a challenge for you to think about: What would happen if you took some time to recharge?
In the quiet of meditation, we notice that between every thought there is a space. It's in that space where our freedom of choice resides. In being with ourselves, we find the pause, the space between each thought. This is our place of calm, wisdom and strength.
