Quote of the Week & Reflection 
Posted by Jonathan Quail on the 17th of July 2019

“Someone once asked the Buddha, 'What have you gained from meditation?' He replied 'Nothing at all.'

'Then, Blessed One, what good is it?' asked the questioner.

The Buddha smiled and said, "However, let me tell you what I have lost: fear, anger, anxiety, depression, greed, hatred and delusion.'” 
                                                                         
 - World Buddhism (Volume 22)
  
 
I love this week's quote because it really does put meditation into proper perspective. Unlike so many practices and techniques that supposedly lead to the practitioners 'personal growth' and their seemingly getting something out of their practice, meditation, properly understood, reverses this distorted perception, which only reinforces the idea that we are lacking or missing something and need to become bigger, stronger and better to compensate for this imagined lack. 

But this belief only fosters our desire for more, which according to the Buddha is the root of all suffering and certainly seems to explain much of the suffering that is so prevalent in Westernised societies today. Just think of how often you feel disappointed or even devastated when you want something and that desire is frustrated or completely unfulfilled and you'll see the truth of this for yourself.

By helping our minds to let go of their attachment to material things and outcomes we think will make us happy, meditation helps us realise that our desire for more - more money and the things it can buy, more relationships, more pleasurable experiences and anything else that we think we need more of in this world - is one of our core delusions and the reason for so much of our suffering (not to mention the foundation of our economic system!)

Regular meditation helps us systematically undo all our false beliefs that tell us we need more, but which really support our belief that we are not good enough because we don't have enough. It helps us to let go of our ego, which has to believe we are lacking something to maintain its apparently separate existence, and accept the wholeness that we already have and are.

"But how do I actually do that?" you may well be asking yourself. "The theory is great, but how do I meditate in a way that will help me undo my desire for all the stuff that I think I need and accept that I am already perfect, whole and complete?"

To help you do this, I'd like to give you a powerful Ten-step Letting Go Process I've developed that is a synthesis of all the teachings in A Course in Miracles, which I've been studying for over 13 years and is my spiritual path.

This Process will help you to let go of any negative thought or emotion no matter what it is or how challenging the situation triggering it appears to be (if not immediately, then ultimately if you persevere with it). It's helped me to get through some very challenging times in my life and I still use it as part of a Letting Go Meditation Process I've created and which I do myself every other morning to connect me to my true Self, which is Love.




I'll be guiding people though this Ten-Step Letting Go Process as part of a ten-minute meditation during the FREE Art of Letting Go Webinar (which is an online presentation, in case you're wondering) that I'm running on Wednesday the 24th of July from 8 to about 9.30 p.m. SA time.

During the Webinar, I'll also be talking about 3 Stress-busting Secrets and The Art of Letting Go Course, a six-week online transformation process based on the teachings in A Course in Miracles (ACIM) that I'll be running in September and October this year.
  
Doing the Course will help you to master the thought system behind the Ten-Step Letting Go Process and help you stick to a daily routine that includes a Guided Meditation incorporating the Ten-Step Process, discussion & live meditation sessions and study of ACIM, to name just a few of the transformational practices you'll be doing during the Course.
  
       


 I hope to connect with you during the Webinar. Have a Flowing month in the meantime and to help you do that, remember that anything negative that seems to happen to you is really Just Another Opportunity to Breathe, Let Go and Find Your Flow... 


Yours in Flow

Are You Ready to Let Go and Find Your 'Flow'?

‘Flow’
is a state of mind in which a person doing something is fully immersed in that activity. They typically feel energised, fully focused and a great sense of enjoyment while doing the activity. 

In essence, ‘Flow’ is characterised by complete absorption in what you're doing and a resulting loss of your normal perception of space and time. It’s also referred to as being ‘in the Zone’, particularly in sporting circles, where it’s highly prized because sportsmen and women perform at a much higher level when they are ‘in the zone’.



However, you don’t have to be a competitive sports person to benefit from being in ‘the zone’. Whether you are working on a computer, cooking a meal, driving, playing with your kids or doing any of the many activities that fill our days, the enjoyment of what you do and the results you experience are directly proportional to the level of your flow.

This is what the renowned spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle has to say about the phenomenon of Flow in life:

“Artistic creation, sports, dance, teaching, counselling — mastery in any field of endeavour implies that the thinking mind is either no longer involved at all or at least is taking second place. A power and intelligence greater than you and yet one with you in essence takes over. There is no decision-making process anymore; spontaneous right action happens, and ‘you’ are not doing it. Mastery of life is the opposite of control. You become aligned with the greater consciousness. It acts, speaks, does the works.”

The formula for happiness and success in life is therefore very simple:

Increased Ability to Let Go  =  More Flow  =  Greater Happiness  =  Increased Success    

Could life really be this simple? Yes, it really is. But don’t take my word for it – I invite you to do The Art of Letting Go Course and discover the Secret of Authentic Happiness, Fulfilling Flow and True Success for yourself. Because I can tell you this truth forever, but only when you believe it through your own experience will it mean anything to you. 

More importantly, I can’t experience your Flow, happiness and success for you. But I can show you the way to experience these states consistently if you are willing to learn How to Let Go of the Blocks that Stop You From Experiencing Them

These blocks are your own negative thoughts and emotions, which so often seem to be caused by people and events outside yourself. This is not true, but it seems to be true to you at the time, or you would not react negatively to them.

'FLOW' EXERCISE  

Now I'm going to ask you to do a simple exercise to help you to see this. Take a deep breath through your nose and reflect on an experience where you felt extremely blocked and negative.... 

How did that feel? Now repeat the exercise, but think of an experience where you felt completely in flow, free and happy... 

How did that feel? Be aware of the difference in feelings and consciously note which one you prefer and why. 

Can you imagine how different your life would be if you could feel the happy, flowing feeling you prefer even when the circumstances you are in would normally make you feel negative and blocked? 

Now ask yourself how much you want to learn this Priceless Skill - yes, it is a skill that can be learned - and what you are willing to do to learn it.
