Meditation Benefits Part 4, Live In The Present, Release Effort, Stress and Anxiety, Struggle Is Optional!
Meditation Benefits Part 4 – Wouldn’t it be nice to just be able to let go? To allow life to come as it may. To be able, as the heading says, to Release Effort, Stress and Anxiety. To just live in the present. Well the issue is that we are mostly operating from our ego, our physical body as opposed to our true spiritual nature. I have felt all of the above. Just spinning my wheels when it came to combining spirituality and physicality.
The main difference in operating as pure consciousness (spirit) versus the physical body is the use of effort. We have this overwhelming desire or need, while acting from our physical nature, to be in full control at all times regardless of the situation. The spiritual nature which is opposite, however allows all things to come easily and effortlessly. If you really want to feel what struggle is like try changing something in the past or controlling the future. That is why the present is critical to growth and happiness.
Acquiring this effortless state can be difficult however. It’s not a surprise that many people struggle with this. It is difficult to live in the present. As a race, humans applaud effort (grit, determination, hard work, will power, discipline and struggling against the odds). For this reason we believe something isn’t worth while unless it difficult to get it. We even feel guilty if we are not working hard at something or if it comes too easily. We also tend to judge people who don’t behave in accordance with these social morays. They become tagged as dreamers, living in an unrealistic fantasy world. This is not true. Struggle is optional.
