Weekly Insights Newsletter – Perseverance

Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there’s love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.

Ella Fitzgerald

Our meditation journey last week was on perseverance. Call it ironic, coincidental or perhaps just funny, but after the meditation I got stuck and didn’t want to complete my journal and follow the process I have, I was in no mood for perseverance! I was looking for excuses, for things or people to blame and for any way I could get out of it without looking bad. 

I became aware of my state, even got a little nudge from my wife, and with this awareness I was able to stop what I was doing, I acknowledged my state, I was compassionate with myself, I then leant back in my chair and closed my eyes to find silence. 

It only took 5 minutes, but once I opened my eyes I started typing and the words flowed. And despite being behind by 20 minutes, I managed to complete everything in time. The feeling was amazing. Even finding pictures for my social content happened super fast. I was connected, I was in flow, I was reminded of the very thing I teach.

We followed a similar process in our meditation journey. We discovered that to find the true meaning in something we had to stop. Stop searching, stop creating, stop adding meaning. We were guided to become silent and still and to open ourselves to receive. 

What came to us wasn’t an answer, it wasn’t something physical, nor was it something that could be said in words. It was a way of being, an altered state, a state where anything is possible.

We were reminded that no matter what it is that we are persevering through, this state of being is possible and not only is it possible, but it is powerful and all that matters.

Can you take 5 minutes right now to step into this state?
