Parayogini Katie Silcox recently said that the only difference between an enlightened person and one that is not, is that an enlightened person no longer resists pain. She says that there is an underlying thing that is living through our bodies and surrounding us and connecting us to one another that is intelligent and constantly working to teach us the lesson of: stop struggling.
In my previous post, Meditation for Fidgety Soul, I spoke about what types of meditation pair well with music. Similar to what types of cheese pair well with a nice Merlot? We talked about Intention-base Meditation and Energized Body-Mind Meditation being the best type of practice to practice to music. When you’re focusing on a future desired state or energized after an amazing yoga flow. Charlie Knoles, our meditation expert, reminds us that we must also set an intention when we are practicing. He also reminds us that the goal of our practice is to get so clear on what you want that it absolutely has to happen. You need to be very calm, but also very focused.
