Peace of Mind, Body and Soul

I was introduced to the practice of meditation through a 12-step program. I must admit, I find it quite difficult to sit and clear away all my 'head chatter' so that I can focus my energy on being open and present to the connection with my Higher Power/Higher Self. I can also find a million excuses for not taking 10 minutes a day to sit and be quiet.

However, this comes at a cost to my sense of wellbeing and peace of mind. When I neglect my meditation practice, I walk around in a selfish, self-centered state and complain about what is wrong with the world and who is wronging me. I can be in an excitable and anxious state when the smallest things, such as another driver, will make me highly irritable.

Long story short, when I take the time to meditate and read my morning meditations I am more God-centered and less me-centered. I can take life and myself a lot less seriously, and I can understand that I am not in charge and that I need to live life on life's terms - not my terms. I am a lot more calm, centered, serene and un-affected by the normal annoyances of the day. So each day that I choose to neglect meditation, I have to accept the consequences that it has on my emotional, spiritual, physical and mental well-being.
