Happy new year! First of all I would like to thank you for your continuous support and your meditation practice. It is people like you that make this world a beautiful place. It is through your presence that you uplift others, restore what’s broken and heal old wounds. Life is truly precious and it demands our full attention and devotion. If we live it in order to get somewhere else we are much like dancers that try to get to the end of the dance thinking about getting to dance at some point. The purpose of life is to be alive, not to think about how you are going to live once you’re finished preparing for it.
“Life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans”, John Lennon famously said. There’s much truth in this statement. As long as we are waiting for our thoughts to find fulfillment we miss out. Most people have a rude awakening towards the end of their life – and it is mostly based on the deep realization that they haven’t truly lived. This mail is calling you back into what’s most precious! May your 2018 be a deeply fulfilling year in all aspects. May you be there to truly enjoy it, learn from it and grow through it. Here’s to an awesome new NOW!
Our Two Weekly Audio Teachings
Here we list our two recordings from last week’s classes. The classes are held every week at the Phuket Meditation Center and are for free. Everyone is welcome to join! You can find out more about the free sessions on this page: Free Meditation Classes. We hope to see you soon 🙂
EPISODE 139: Challenging Emotions
Stop and Feel, Breathe Deeply, Change your Thoughts about the Situation. These three steps are a very direct and powerful tool to shift the way you think and feel. Our thoughts and emotions are at the foundation of our actions and our actions cause direction in our life. So it makes sense to know how to shift our state in good ways.
EPISODE 140: Emotional Healing
Instead of repressing, suppressing or avoiding our emotions we should learn how to receive them. Receiving our emotions is a way that can lead towards healing and personal as well as spiritual growth. Those who avoid emotions and disregard their language are in for an endless repetition of unsolved issues.
