We are all on a quest for meaning and alignment

Looking for Inner Peace?

Inner peace
The quest of meditators everywhere, throughout time, pretty much boils down to inner peace. This is the holy grail that people all over the world seek as they sit on their cushions and close their eyes. The practice of looking inside for a number of minutes is the opposite of almost everything else we do every day. It is the practice of not-doing. One Buddhist monk put it beautifully when he said, “anyone can meditate. Sit down. Close eyes.” In his broken English, he communicated perfectly. The meaning I took from his message was, “don’t complicate this. Just do it.”

Just do it
The practice of meditation is an act of faith. Sitting down for a few minutes each day, trying to stop thinking- how do you explain to your family and friends why you are sitting there doing nothing? How do you explain it to yourself, for that matter? It can seem pretty pointless.
I can say that it does have a point. It is something that takes daily repetition. It is the anchoring of your mind in reality. Those minutes that you spend cultivating peace inside yourself each day pay big dividends. As you meditate, you plant seeds of peace in your psyche. If you do not meditate, you still plant seeds and allow seeds to be planted in your mind. Meditation allows you to weed out some undesirable seeds before they take over the whole garden of your mind. And it allows you to plant some fruit trees and rose bushes. Meditation is the cultivation of your garden of consciousness.

Creates vibration of peace going out into the world
As you change your emotional and mental landscape, the way you operate in the world changes. People around you look different. The way you look at them, the way you perceive them becomes more humane, so they become more human before your eyes. As you cultivate peace in your mind and your spirit, that vibration goes out into the world and changes it. Like tuning forks, we resonate with one another. Get your fork in tune and you will be amazed to see the people and situations in your life transform.

Macro photography involves taking close-up pictures of small subjects. Inevitably some of these subjects are in darkened surroundings, so you need light. A macro LED ring light provides this.
