Life goes by fast. It’s a cliche to say that but it’s true – and most of us need reminding.
The best way to live life to the fullest is through meditation.
If you meditate every day, I guarantee you, when the day comes that you will be departing this world, you won’t look back at your life with regret.
This post was inspired by the 5 Regrets of the Dying from a hospice nurse. That list offers some brave insights and great opportunities (some may call them “warnings”).
How can meditation help you on such a broad scale?
Meditation lets you engage with life – directly. Or more accurately: Meditation is direct engagement with Eternity. When you experience the Truth of meditation, you come to know. The illusions are wiped away; you can see clearly, even if just for a moment. That moment stays with you; it changes you.
Meditation can invigorate you, and inspire you to reach higher. It unleashes gratitude in your life, allowing you to do more for others. It gives you the knowing of a path-forward in the dark.
Meditation is not a panacea. It cannot fill the stomach of a starving child. It’s no cure for poverty – at least, not the material kind. But meditation can fill the longing that occupies so many souls, and give courage to make a better life.
A regular practice of meditation becomes an anchor in your life. I’ve never met someone committed to meditation who was not a joyful person.
I’m no doctor, but if I could, I would prescribe meditation to everyone, to ward off the worst kind of sickness and help us all get better.
