The art of chilling out starts with Meditation. Part-13.


Nothing is so like God as silence. – Meister Eckhart.

Practicing silence and stillness is the door way to calming the mind, keeping it distress free, slowing down aging  and finding balance in this constantly changing, chaotic, world around us. If you are as crazy about  meditation as I am, it is an excellent idea to do 30 days challenge and practice silence.

Today has been Day-10 of my 30 days challenge. It has been going very well  so far. Of course I still work, get things done, go about life-like taking my son to school, having a good time with  a close  friend visiting from India and such. My personal phone calls and emails are very minimum, only to close family. Work is work I am not counting work calls here.

I chose this challenge as a test for myself to observe if I can restrain myself from “Facebook”. I was having too much fun and getting a bit addicted to virtual world and I did not like that. I have avoided playing virtual games and do not believe in spending too much time in virtual world. We have got too many responsibilities going on in the real world anyways. Take it easy 🙂 No offense. This is just my personal opinion.

I am enjoying the challenge and  loving it. If you have been a fan of “Abraham Hicks” then you might understand what I mean when I say I am  “In the Vortex”. I would say it is another name for “stillness”.

I believe  mother was right when she said clean up your thoughts and keep your focus. I am just wanting to keep my focus where it belong to, which  is meditation. I enjoy it a bit too much ha ha. So I am sort of enjoying this time alone, practicing silence, more meditation and loving it. I am a very happy person indeed right now right at this moment. You all have a happy peaceful meditation time!

Silence is God’s first language; everything else is a poor translation. In order to hear that language, we must learn to be still and to rest in God. — Thomas Keating.
