ARE YOU AT THE DOOR OF DECLINING MENTAL HEALTH?

0 Comments

There’s much talk about mental health today, and that’s very positive as previously most people were just scared of the mention of mental health problems.

My take on this is that the stresses of modern-day life have caught up with us.  We can no longer escape the pressure, and it is directly affecting each and everyone one of us.

Here in my hometown of London, UK, the average working week is 2-3 hours greater than European workers, plus we have some of the most extended commuting times in the world to get to our jobs ranging from 45-150 minutes.  That’s evidence that we have less free or leisure time.  Add the responsibilities of being a householder with a family, or a carer – and already you can see that there is immense pressure to balance life successfully.   And, the truth is – most people do not!

Being out of balance by struggling to meet the demands of a busy lifestyle is the first stage to a declining mental state where our mind is never at peace because of external and internal pressure to keep everything in balance.

As you may have heard me say previously or in another lecture (Satsang), the precursor to stress is fear.

If you analyse your stress objectively, you will see that you fear something. Generally, that feeling is of some form of loss, loss of someone or something, of face, or confidence to do something, or inability to perform a task or responsibility.

Stress produces negative energies which are denser than positive energies which are finer, and it depresses our self-esteem, which leads to depression.  That heavy, dense negativity pushed us downwards. That feeling of heaviness is something we’ve all experienced at some point in our lives.

If we are subjected to long periods of unresolvable stress, this will affect our mental health.  However, we want to halt the downward spiral while it is still within our control.

Meditation is very successful in improving our mental health as it deals directly with our number one enemy – stress!

Regular practice reduces our stress levels significantly.  Strength resides at the deeper regions of the mind where we journey during meditation.

As we meditate, we neutralise those negative thoughts and emotions that have built up over time, and the mind cannot be a vacuum, so these are replaced with positive ones.

The whole structure of our mind changes giving us calm, clarity and strength. Through this process, our emotions are quietened, and we feel more stable with fewer mood swings.  The clouds of the mind disperse, and some sunshine from the superconscious self begins to peep through.  We have new bursts of happiness that increase over time. We feel everything in our lives is in better balance and this will be evident with greater harmony in relationships, at work and within ourselves.

I promise you, meditation is so simple to do and is a drug-free way to gaining back balanced mental health.

It’s easy – let me show you how….

  • REGULARITY HAS PROVEN BENEFITS
    As you will well remember, I was for many, many years one of those typical semi-meditators - always absolutely loving the Togatherings (Deepening Retreats) where I managed to renew myself spiritually every time and for a few weeks afterwards made a great effort to TRY and do two meditations a day - but inevitably slipping back to one a day (if that ) because my day was just so busy at certain times of the year etc.

    And I TRULY believed it was impossible to fit in two 25/30-minute sessions a day. I was too tired in the evenings; summer was a work nightmare for my business, there were too many distractions from daily life and so on. Basically, just excuses as Jasmini always told me.

    Anyway, since about 12 months ago I have FINALLY managed to make myself a routine and stick to it - and become a regular meditator twice a day. And the results have been absolutely spectacular - I can't tell you the transformation in my everyday existence since then.

    At the ripe old age of 60 I have a new energy source that makes me feel 10-15 years younger on most days - everything in the world has more clarity and my decision-making is much better and discrimination becomes so much easier.
    As regards personal relationships, I am far less angry and frustrated by people, seeing the good in almost everyone and deepening my feelings for a lot of people I hold dear.

    Summing up in a nutshell, as the song goes, " love is all around " and it really is an amazing transformation. Totally recommended to everyone!

    Obviously, I would be lying if I said it was easy - it's taken me 10 years almost to finally see the light - and even now some days it is tough - but it gets easier and easier as you see the huge benefits in your life.

    And others also tell you they see the transformation too!

  • The Spiritual Significance of Diwali - Illuminate your inner self

    Diwali is considered a festival of lights, often illustrated by burning candles, firecrackers and fireworks but the soul’s journey from darkness unto light is its the primary symbolism.

    The lights of Diwali further signify inner illumination. Hindus believe that the light of lights, - divine light, is the one that steadily shines in the chambers of the heart and I would agree.

    Meditation is the perfect tool to help us uncover that light that is within and allow it to shine through us. Once we start meditating regularly, more light can shine through to dispel darkness.

    Sitting quietly and meditating brings the supreme light that illuminates the soul. It is an opportunity to unfold, cultivate and enjoy eternal bliss.

    Happy Diwali
