I kinda wanna start singing, ” You say it best, when you say nothing at ALL” but I won’t…
Have you ever had that time when you cannot concentrate at work during the whole day, but you wake up in the middle of the night and, all of a sudden, you come up with a groundbreaking marketing strategy? How about that time when a bright business idea comes to your mind while you’re taking a shower?
Ever wondered why the best ideas come to mind during those times? It is because of silence. We think the most and get the best clarity when it is silent because we are away from things that could distract our train of thoughts – you know like our mobile phones, the television, our social media accounts, our email, etc.
Meditation is very important when it comes to bringing out the best of us. Everyday, we get preoccupied with our daily responsibilities. We are too busy to stop and meditate because we have deadlines to meet and tasks to complete, so we force ourselves to create and think. When it is silent, however, it is just us and our thoughts alone, so we get to discover and see how far and wide our mind can actually explore. When we meditate, it is actually when we can think.
On my bucket list is The Vipassana Meditation Camp which is a great avenue for you to understand the power of silence and use it to your advantage. It is learned by attending a 10-day residential course with a qualified teacher where the student is free from distractions so that the reality within can be observed. This ancient technique of meditation focuses on the connection between the mind and the body, helping you dissolve mental impurities and realize how you, as a person, are connected to your environment. Vipassana Meditation develops a person’s awareness, self-observation, clarity, self-control, and thought organization. Learn more about this amazing technique and enlist yourself for a life-changing camp by visiting their website.
So when you are cramped up and pressured to think… sit down, relax, go into silence, and breathe. You’ll be surprised with what pops out of your mind. After all, the answer is already in your head… you just have to listen to it.
Till next time, #staySharp.
