What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow. Our life is the creation of our mind,” Buddha said. If we want to build a better tomorrow we can start with what we can do—meditation is a start. We know the mind and body are connected and meditation is proving to be a great benefit to people. Everyone has one thing in common, we all want to be happy and experience joy. Many of us are guilty of looking outside ourselves for relief and fulfillment. By shifting focus and looking into mediation, joy can be yours. You can read numerous accounts on how mindful mediation has radically changed people and their lives. People dealing with suicide, depression, stress, and a lack of peace have sought out meditation, yoga and tai chi to achieve these benefits. Practicing mediation is not a 100 percent cure for depression, sickness, or creativity, but it can be used as a tool to help balance things out. If you are unsure, do research and find out if it is right for you. With anything, you have nothing to lose by trying it.
