Meditation: Developing Your Capacity for Serenity
How do we develop our capacity to stay relaxed, clear, and calm amidst constant new information and change? Of course, each day eat well, drink plenty of water, exercise, breathe, meditate, make time for quiet, and remember.
What to remember? I find that keeping in mind the five sutras of the Aquarian Age, upon which this magazine is based, is a great stress buster:
When time is on you, start, and the pressure shall be off. In other words, just get going. Right away, take a deep breath, and call upon the unseen resources of the universe. Next, select the most important task that needs to be addressed right now. Direct your attention, your thoughts, and your actions toward the solution.
There is a way through every block. This is helpful to remember, especially when you have no idea in the moment just what that way through is. Simply knowing that there is one will help you be both receptive to, and active toward, finding one. Remember that the help you need can come from unexpected places.
Vibrate the Cosmos. Cosmos shall clear the path. That’s right, chant. Out loud is better, although silently works, too. Changing your mental frequency changes your emotional response to the situation and environments, allows you to focus on the present demands, and opens up your own inner wisdom and clarity. It also helps others stay calm around you. “Vibrate the Cosmos” also means to be aware of your words, and tone of voice. Avoid venting your frustration by bad mouthing someone or repeating over and over what a lousy situation you’re in. Make a practice of consciously choosing your words, and then notice how much energy and spirit you have, how others change around you, and how quickly you get things done.
Understand through compassion, or you will misunderstand the times. Be kind to everyone, even when you are angry or upset or in a hurry. Responding kindly to others when the pressure is on makes it safe for them to come forward with solutions and to take appropriate action. Aren’t you more willing to help someone when they are kind to you? Kind understanding makes good will for the next project.
Recognize that the other human being is you. It is easy to blame others, or to think poorly of them, when the pressure is on. Why waste time and energy upsetting yourself over the actions or lack of action of another person? Remember that they have an infinite soul, too. Draw on the other person’s intelligence, talent, creativity, time, and energy. You will both feel great when the job is done.
