A key benefit of meditation is slowing down the mind enough to hear the multiple layers of our thoughts. With this heightened awareness of how we process information we can then make subtle shifts that over time create a substantial difference.
Learning how to passively observe my breath for my meditation practice has made me much more capable of letting go of control and trusting in the way things fall into place. I try my best. I relax and I trust. I patiently wait and things come together like magic. Life is like the breath: it just flows.
It has taken me a long time to get to this place. I’m glad I did the work to get here. I’m happy to continue to do the work so that I can better appreciate this cosmic dance called life.
