meditation challenge: day two

Today’s Centering Thought: Balance is my true nature.
Sanskrit Mantra: Yum. (repeating this mantra enlivens the heart chakra)

Deepak Chopra turns to Ayurveda, which is a 5000 year old science. Ayurveda means wisdom of life or the science of longevity. There’s a question that everyone asks at some point in their lives: must we become sick and grow old? The Ayurvedic answer is: no. We can be immune to disease and decline; that disorders can be prevented or reversed as long as balance is maintained. Balance of mind, body and spirit. Perfect balance makes perfect health possible.

This seems pretty intense when you read it and hear it. The sensible part of us thinks, okay but is that realistic? But really can we know anything unless we try it and believe it? You know how sometimes you think you have a stomach ache but it’s not really there? Then you think about it long enough that it actually happens. Your mind is powerful. I’m very aware of this because my brain can make all kinds of pain and ailments appear. But what if my mind was just as powerful to do the reverse? I’m down to try anything especially if it has a positive effect on my body and life.

I want to take today’s centering thought and introduce that into my life. I want perfect balance or even just enough balance to feel well enough, alive enough and happy enough.

What do you think?
