Establishing A Daily Meditation Practice

It's important to establish a daily practice and then stick to it. This doesn't mean dedicating 12 hours a day to meditation, it just means creating a space in your home where you can take a few minutes and meditate and do the exercises. I advise people to start with some of the basic exercises and devote 10 -20 minutes a day as they develop their physical and mental abilities. Many people quite simply overload themselves and expect too much too soon, then get discouraged when they don't see the results they thought they should Hong Kong travel trade updates.

Getting Started

Set aside a corner in one of your rooms. You can stock it with whatever accoutrement you wish. Many folks have cushions, candles, incense and a small CD player for music or guided meditation CD's. Use whatever tools and accessories you want to, as there's no right or wrong at this point.

Once you've created your 'sacred space' then all you have to do is use it. Set aside a few minutes each day and begin working on your breathing and Full Body Awareness. Don't worry at this point about how long you meditate, just get into the habit of doing it. The effects of meditation are cumulative, so 5 minutes a day everyday is better than 20 minutes once a week.

Eventually you'll get to the point where you don't need any accessories and you can clear your mind and meditate anywhere, at any time, but for now don't worry about that, just create a pleasant, sacred atmosphere and get started.

On 'Expectation'

In the spiritual circles we often hear people talking about doing things 'without expectation'. It's amazing how often the simple truths are all around us company incorporation.

When we begin meditation or working towards the kundalini, we often feel that we should be able to do certain things within a certain time frame. We expect to be able to clear our minds and access our deeper abilities. We expect to be able to sit for an hour and meditate, or to see auras, or feel other people's chi. Then when it doesn't happen we become disappointed and confused. I can't tell you how important it is to break free of these expectations.

When we let go of expectations and learn to just relax in the moment and just BE, then we are making progress of the most important kind. In the west we tend to be so goal oriented and have a need to see results, but frequently the cumulative effects of meditation aren't noticeable until much later. Meditation is about this moment, about BEing totally in this moment, rather than about who you'll be when you've become a good meditator.

The important thing with a regular practice is to just do it. The effects are cumulative and one day you'll look back and see that all those short meditation sessions actually added up LED Lamp Company.

Lessons from My Garden

What does "Lessons from My Garden" have to do with "getting organized? One of the things I've learned after 20+ years as an organizing consultant is that organizing has something to do with everything!

Here's how organizing principles apply to the art of gardening:

"Half of any job is using the right tool!" (Note I said "using" - not "having!") It took a blister to convince me to buy a new pair of loppers to finish trimming the butterfly bushes. With the new tool, pruning was easy and painless nuskin.

"Today's mail is tomorrow's pile." While it's certainly important to clean up the trash, weeds, and other undesirables in your garden, if you limit yourself to that activity, you can work very hard and see little results. One of the things my landscape designer taught me was to pick one small area and plant beautiful things to inspire me to keep going. With Paper Tiger, we encourage you to start using Paper Tiger to organize your desktop - you can worry about all those old piles later! After you get the new system in place, you can incorporate the old files into the new system - and if you don't, they'll eventually be old enough that tossing them will be easy. In the meantime, you have what you need to do today's work, and you won't be creating new unidentified piles!

"Clutter is Postponed Decisions." One of the first steps in creating any rewarding garden is determining what kind of garden you want - vegetable, herb, cutting, perennial, etc. As great as all those options are, if you try to have all of them in the same space, the result will be disappointing. Or, to apply another Paper Tiger principle, "Put like items together!" Create a specific area in your garden for herbs, another for cut flowers, etc. In the same way, you can create separate "locations" in Paper Tiger for personal papers, active projects, CDs, clients, etc.

"Successful organizing begins with a vision." The most beautiful gardens are first planted in someone's mind! The initial question I ask every client is "If we were to meet three years from now, what has to happen for you to feel happy about your progress?" Their answers are varied, and include such statements as "I'll be making $100,000/year," or "I'll be taking six weeks of vacation every year," "I'll be working at home," or "I'll have a full-time assistant." If we don't have something to aim for, we'll never get there nuskin.

"Organizing doesn't have a 'right' or 'wrong.'" The most exciting aspect of my work is the "art of organizing." I frequently tell my clients, "You paint a picture for me of what you want to accomplish, and I'll help you create and sustain an environment to make that happen!" What works beautifully for one client would be a complete disaster for another.

"Organizing is a process not a destination." A garden, like organizing, is a continual process of reassessing what you like, what you don't, rearranging existing plants, and trying new varieties. And so it is with organizing! Continually asking three questions: "Does it work?'' "Do I like it?" "Does it work for the others I care about?" Be willing to take risks, don't worry about mistakes, and just keep learning nuskin!

Received an unexpected

I received an unexpected call from one of my bosses yesterday. It’s after work and I’d already headed home. As soon as I hung up the phone, I had an impulse to throw my cell away. But it’s imprudent and not economical, I gave it up.

Over the phone, my boss told me that he got a meeting at 10 am tomorrow morning and he needed his PPT ready before that. Thanks for the trust, but no thanks for the last minute call. I know I am good at writing, but I am not that good, right? The format and context were already fixed at the last meeting, but still it’s not like that I could conjure up all the data I needed by simply snapping my fingers. And the fact that it’s already off work didn’t help HKUE DSE.

I texted all the persons involved and asked for the information I needed. From now on, I would never complain about too many communication groups in my wetchat. Not surprisingly, some of them won’t arrive till tomorrow. Considering the fact that our company don’t have clock in and off system, I was left nothing to do but pray.

So, this morning was totally a chaos. I got up early, cut down my time with oral English practice, and left home a complete mess. Tension, that’s the only word I felt when I was preparing the PPT. Sadly, Tension didn’t quicken my speed, in fact it did the opposite. I made some mistakes and had to do it all over again. Any way I managed it at the last minute.

Believe it or not, my stomach actually twisted when I finished it. I craved my daily Coffee fix. So I decided to treat myself a cup of Starbucks. Grande, this time.

Like a choice

Life is always in the face of a lot of different choices, we are always confused, confused do not know is to take the left fork in the road yesterday, or tomorrow on the right do not always know how to choose, is a repeat of yesterday's stale, flat walking lightly in place, or to explore the wonderful tomorrow bravely to break their own future.
