Life with a Meditative Attitude

Meditative attitude is an aspect of life. Simply closing your eyes and thinking is not meditation. In meditation you are always with yourself. When you are close to yourself, you are in meditation. If you are doing meditation you will go farther away from yourself. To awaken your meditative nature there are certain set of practices and one such powerful practice is that you observe your breath. If you cannot observe your breath, then count your breath. Make a permanent habit from today that you will never spend a day without counting hundred breaths. Count your 100 breaths and you will awaken your meditative nature.

What does it mean when your life becomes meditative.. That means your life will be full of power, creativity and strength. The environment is full of vibrations. When vibration touches your system it transforms into thought. Thought is power. I have the power to think and to create thoughts. We never use that power to think and to create thoughts. What we call thinking is not thinking. The power to think is the power of creation. With wisdom, we can think and wisdom comes with consciousness.

Discover higher consciousness by cultivating meditation. All matter is energy, energy is consciousness. When you are positive you feel healthy. When you are destructive, you start feeling different and weak. When your thoughts are positive and healthy, you feel strong. Don’t confuse your thoughts with ego, Positive thoughts are when you feel positive not just about yourself but about everyone around you. That again is born only with meditative attitude

Anger

Anger is a primeval impulse which doesn’t go through the rational part of the brain which is the Cerebral Cortex. Instead, the action flows through the area of the brain that controls our natural instinct. Anger by itself is a natural instinctive emotion but how to deal with it is a whole different ball game. So you don’t produce the next face buster. Anger is like food, it decays on delay and it can fester into resentment, hostility, hate and revenge.

Now all that can happen in a few seconds, hours or years. It is important to recognise where the fury transgresses or arise from. Sadness is nothing but anger turned inwards. The emotions are two sides of the same coin. Anger gets worse when you are drunk. Thoughts get distorted and you don’t realise what you are saying and often not even remember it.

The first step towards anger management is self awareness. When you start experiencing anger, immediately start alternative relaxation methods. From deep breathing to counting to ten, these are the most common relaxation methods in social situations. Surprisingly, a shower can work volumes. Just getting out of the house to avoid a confrontation which might end in due consequences does not work. Head out and jog. Running helps push happy chemicals instead of the emotion that is clouding your thought process. The best thing is to sip water slowly. Black humour is a great way to let off steam as well.
