In order to infuse values and real character into our life we need to put some time aside a day to charge the batteries of our higher values.
We all have mobile phones with apps on it that can do so many things. But no matter what type of phone we have, whether it is a Samsung, Iphone or HTC we need to charge it every day. When we charge it every day, we activate it with the energy in which everything else functions. So, in order to infuse values and real character into our life we need to put some time aside a day to charge the batteries of our higher values
If we ourselves want to be happy and if we want others to be happy, there are 2 very important qualities we need to develop – Compassion & Gratitude.
Join us every Wednesday and Friday at 12:00pm for 30 minutes of guided meditation.
What is compassion?
One of the yoga principle is to develop loving-kindness towards oneself and others. To feel sorry & sad when you see someone else suffering and act in a way to remove their suffering is real compassion In Sanskrit, this quality is called “para dukkha dukhi”.
With the storms we go through in life, it is easy become hard on oneself and loose the quality of compassion.
In the guided meditation on wednesdays we will cultivate and develop compassion, loving-kindness for ourselves and others .
What is gratitude?
It’s safe to say that most of us don’t live every day or moment of our life feeling positive and happy. There can be many valid reasons for this, life is very challenging and is full of ups and downs. But by looking at the bigger picture of life we can be grateful in all situations. By developing an attitude of gratitude, we can have a positive perspective in situations which might seem unfavorable….. It is our choice to see the glass half full or half empty. If we are not grateful, we will become resentful & negative – why is it happening like this, why someone is like this or why I am like this.
Guided meditation session on fridays will help you to replace any negative emotions or feelings you might have with positive ones by developing gratitude for what we have in life.
