“If you rely on drugs or alcohol it’s going to be self-destruction.”—Dalai Lama
Meditation is the medication for you to find peace,
It’s also the prescription to cure your dis-ease.
Focus on your breath and clear out your mind,
Or focus on a mantra to help you unwind.
Envision your soul surrounded by light,
And see your heart glow as it lights up the night.
You are the universe and the universe is you,
Just feel the oneness as you become unglued.
Unglued from your worries, attachments and fears,
Seeing the blessing in everything as your mind becomes clear.
So clear you begin to see what was in front of your face,
God is in everything, in all times and space.
With practice and patience, your life will naturally shift,
You’ll always be grateful, you’ll see it all as a gift.
You’ll laugh like you’re stoned and smile like you’re high,
You’ll be more outgoing if before you were shy.
The results in your life will turn for the best,
In magical ways, you couldn’t have guessed.
So if your looking for change, I suggest meditation.
It’s a great replacement for your prescribed medications.
And the best thing of all, is peace starts from within,
So lets meditate together and allow peace to begin!
More about my Story ….
For years I justified my ‘partying’ as ‘celebrating,’ but as I began to step away from that life-style and into a disciplined meditation practice for the last seven years, I realize how I was medicating my pain, stress, fears and self-conscious attributes with over indulging. As I began going deeper into my practice (& Self) I began to heal all these old patterns, wounds and habits that I wasn’t ever aware of—because I’d never listened—which were holding me back from fulfilling my purpose and activating my true gifts in life.
For those of you who are wanting to come off your medications, stop drinking or quit toking and smoking here’s what I recommend from my own experience and journey: what works for me is to add a whole bunch of awesomeness into my life. Instead of quitting the unhealthy thing, start doing the awesome thing.
The more you include love, joy and fulfillment into your life, the less those old vices will be needed because that hole in your heart will start to fill in all by itself. I didn’t quit drinking or toking, I just chose to be healthy. I asked questions like, “How can I feel better than this? What does my body really want? What would it take to feel my best?” Over time I added a whole bunch of awesomeness to my life; fun ways of exercising, raw foods, smoothies, meditation, yoga, Qi Gong and it just keeps getting better.
It’s all about raising your vibes higher and the ‘other stuff’ will fall away from your life and habits. Sure sometimes we gotta dive into some old sticky wounded stuff, but what adventure would be complete with out some rolling around in the dirt?
Meditation has been a hub in my wheel of life which keeps all the aspects of who I am in balance and harmony with each other; health, business, relationships, personal, family, etc. I believe all of us in this wild modern world need to learn how to stop, breathe (properly) and re-connect with our heart, soul and mind. How else are we going to discover our purpose and live our true dreams? Without this inward practice it is almost impossible.
