My life in dreams

A little meditation for me


For the past two months, I have been experimenting and researching about mediation, the power of our thoughts and yoga. In my quest, mostly through the OWN network, I have found some really good books to read, like A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle , and some really good philosophies on life, like Zen Buddhism.

I have been plagued by questions like: What is my purpose in this life? What can I do to be a better person or make a better contribution to the world around me? Why am I always so worried and anxious?

I do not have the answers to these questions, but through mediation, reading and being with my thoughts,  I have found some inner peace and time to spend with my inner self. Slowly, I am getting closer to the answers I need to alleviate some of my frustrations and concerns about my life.

I have to admit that I am a bit obsessed with Super Soul Sundays on the Own Network. If it was not for Oprah and these shows, which are broadcasted every sunday, I don’t know if I would at least be asking myself the right questions, like: “How can I connect more to others?”

But the most important lesson I have learned through this quest, is that I am already connected to nature and to God. I am not some entity on my own in this world. I have a connection with my fellow humans and with everything that lives on this planet. I am a human but I am also a soul with a spirit. There is some divinity in me and every single human on this Earth. I really have been able to understand myself  and others better. I also have been able to understand my religion and other religions as well, because I am more conscious that I am connected to everything and everything is connected to me.

It is in my humble opinion, whether you are a religious person or not, that mediation can really help us connect with our true beings and most of all help us be more authentic in our relationships. It can really calm us and quiet our inner voice for just a few moments, so that we can collect ourselves. Meditation can also better help us hear what it is that God, the universe or the energies that are, want from us as humans and as divine beings.

I am so grateful to have found sources of inspiration like Ekhart Tolle, so that I can at least ponder on their philosophies and bring more perspective and understanding to my own life. I truly hope that this journey helps me make better choices and eventually allows me to connect even more to nature. I hope that if you are interested in a journey like this, that you can also share me with me your own thoughts.

 

Happy Reading!

The Secret Garden


Recently I visited my parents in N.J. and decided to take some photographs of their beautiful garden. Even while taking the pictures, I enjoyed the quietness and the peace that was in the air that day. The garden was so alive. Looking at it made me wonder: “Why life can’t  be this beautiful and peaceful every day??!!”

We all need a little time for reflection and to just be ourselves. No need for more words, just glance at the pictures and enjoy!

 

 

 

 

 

Happy quiet and reflection day!!!
