Why Meditate? A testimonial to 40 years of meditating under FISU

40 years of Meditating under FISU

Rami Gould celebrated 40 years of meditating under FISU in December 2016.

I first started meditating with FISU techniques at the age of twenty, in 1976. I had been, “searching,” for several years, as life seemed to somehow lack meaning and fulfilment. I enjoyed my studies and friendships; I practised Hatha Yoga, but still something seemed to be missing. All too often, life seemed to be more painful than pleasurable.

Whilst at college, I found myself inextricably drawn to a free introductory talk on meditation at Chiswick Library. As the teacher spoke, for the first time in my life, I felt a deep resonance with what she was saying and knew that I had to learn more.

Within three weeks of starting the course, my life was transformed. I suddenly started to be my real self, instead of the person I thought I should be.  I became more confident, when dealing with difficult relationships, saying what I thought, without worrying about what others thought of me. I had more energy and a much greater enjoyment of life. My attitude had changed so that problems had become challenges, which were merely opportunities to develop greater strength and mastery in my life. I felt more intuitive and found it easier to make, what had been, difficult decisions.

I was amazed that such simple meditation practices were so powerful. By spending twenty to thirty minutes, meditating twice a day, I had found myself feeling deeply connected to a sense that everything was all right and there was nothing to fear. I developed a greater sense of self-worth. I found life to be more beautiful. I became more patient, understanding and compassionate with others.

Over the years, I have faced many different challenges.  Meditation has been the best toolkit I could ever have hoped for, in helping me deal with those challenges. My FISU techniques and the love and wisdom of my gurus have been the raft, which has helped me surf life’s turbulence, instead of being dragged down or tossed around. Regardless of what is going on around me, I feel at peace.

So, this is why I meditate.

  • HOW PRICKLY ARE YOU ON A MONDAY MORNING?
    Monday morning is a highly stressful day for many people. It is the time when people return to work or school after the weekend. If the weekend was long, such as a three-day weekend because of a public holiday, it could be more stressful than the average end to the weekend.

    If returning to work occurs after a holiday, the level of stress can be the most stressful of all. If either work or school is unpleasant or, worse, hated, getting up to go to start the day can be extremely difficult. Even those people who like their job or school can find starting the week a testing experience. If you fall into the category of people who experience this stress and depression on Monday morning you are not alone.

    The highest blood pressure levels of a group of people measured over a week were highest on a Monday morning as people got ready for work.

    Fear is the cause of stress – nothing else!

    Fear is a natural part of us that is part of our system of self-preservation. Accidentally put your finger on a hot kettle, and you´ll see this in full action. Watch a deer´s expression while being chased by a lion – fear is part of every living creature, and this sense will always lead us to try to preserve ourselves. The evolution of the human race is another example of fantastic preservation against all other odds.

    IT´S NOT THE JOB THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY – IT´S YOUR ATTITUDE TOWARDS IT

    That’s what my Guru – Gururaj Ananda Yogi taught me. So true!
