One not too well known fact is that energy follows thoughts.
So for you to have a successful existence you must control your thoughts, and change your way of thinking so you do not put life against yourself.
Do not say “I can’t”, “I’m not good at…” or etc that describes you unable to do something, or do it well.
There is no point saying it, the only thing you can do is focus on making your biggest weakness your biggest strength.
If you actively do this, you will advance past the stars in whatever thing you wish to do.
They may seem like just another word or a small amount of energy, but it all adds up, the rain wears away mountains.
Try to actively avoid doing such things and see how your quality of life and general mental, physical and emotional health drastically increases.
Do you’re self a favor and stop making unnecessary obstacles for your self, you should be climbing rather than digging deeper into your comfort zone.
True happiness and knowledge is found outside of your comfort zone.
Starting or getting into the flow of meditation
Face it, if you are young then you most likely HATE meditation or just say you aren’t good focusing on it and, very few of you will do it constantly.
Meditation is much more important then you can imagine, scientist are finding many benefits for meditation all the time, NASA is studying it to see if they could use it in space travel, that and much more is going on this day and that isn’t even mentioning the metaphysical benefits and implications within it.
You either get into meditation or risk conforming with mediocrity.
That’s all there is to it, till today, there has not been anyone who has gone far without meditation.
Do not say it isn’t for you, either get into it or don’t waste your time being a halfway every way person. You either are in this entirely or you aren’t don’t waste your time when you could be doing something you want to do fully.
Now here is one method to getting into the habit of meditation, that should not be used consistently, not because its bad for you, but because it will become a crutch to you, you don’ want to need this method to do any meditation.
Now, you will need to buy a thin and long candle, the cheaper the better, yo, economy be tough, yo.
Preferably a light color, not to represent good or positivity but for another purpose which will be discussed right after this sentence.
I want you to get a black marker to put several evenly spaced lines on your candle, each space being as big as you are willing to meditate for, each marker is a goal.
Your weekly goal will be of a different color.
You will have to decide what your goal will be, bee (Buzz)it one inch per every 3 days, 2 days or one inch everyday
Once you go through at least 2 and a half candles each being 6 inches or more in height a month, then you should be able to meditate with out hassle every day.
Once you get to this point, then you will not need the candles, in fact you NEVER needed them, they just make getting into the habit of meditation easier.
Do it for as long as you wish, just try to add at least 10 minutes a month, you don’t have to add so little or so much, do as many as you are comfortable doing, but be aware that everything outside of your comfort zone bears the possibility of finding the fruit of Excellency.
Please by everything that is Sasquatch, do not be a bloody idiot and not have water at hand. It only takes one occasion to burn ye face off and in worse cases die and harm others with your stupid ass actions.
Fire is awesome, take it from another minor pyromaniac, but fire actually burns. AND will kill if tempted. So be smart, prepared and not mess with it more than you need to.
You are free to meditate with a candle once in a while if you wish, just NEVER do it constantly, because it will become a handicap and even in serious cases your wallet O: THE HORROR!
Be safe people, most of all try to learn~
Let us then learn how to produce an absolute vacancy of mind. Lie down comfortably on a bed or sofa or sit in an armchair and relax your whole body.
Close your eyes. Energetically dismiss any thought coming upon you.
Nothing at all is allowed to happen in your mind; an absolute vacancy of mind must reign.
Now hold on to this stage of vacancy without digressing or forgetting. At first, you will manage to do so for only a few seconds, but by practicing it more often, you will surely succeed better at it.
The purpose of the exercise will be attained if you succeed in remaining in this state for a full 10 minutes without losing your self-control or even falling asleep.
Carefully enter your success, failure, duration of your exercises and eventual disturbances in a diary.
Such a diary will be useful to check your progress.
The greater the scrupulousness you use in doing so, the more easily you will undergo all the other exercises.
Prepare a working schedule for the coming day or week, and most of all, indulge in self-criticism.
