If you’re not on facebook you won’t get the Thursday replacement post for the week’s meditation. This week’s was The Creation of You and it proved very popular so I thought I would provide a link to it here.
You are doing very important things by conducting these daily meditations. All of the definitions that you see as yourself are not you, those are labels that are there for us to organize ourselves. If you take those seriously they’ll bind you up and prevent you from growing.
People think a lot of young people are lost when in reality they’re found. A lot of people are seen as crazy for jumping off the treadmill and returning to life. That isn’t going crazy. That’s going sane. The world is actually changing. But if we are so busy living the narratives of our identities then we will have very little time available to engage with the aspects of life that are profound. Our nows are spend doing and not being.
Here’s a guy called Infinite Waters discussing the act of letting go of your beliefs to discover who you really are. That is what each of these exercises are designed to do. As we make your ego transparent you will once again be able to see and to guide yourself toward a life that is especially yours.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone. Stay aware.
Scott McPherson is an Edmonton-based writer, public speaker, and mindfulness facilitator who works with individuals, companies and non-profit organizations around the world.
A serious childhood brain injury lead Scott to spend his entire life meditating on the concepts of thought, consciousness, reality and identity. It made others as strange to him as he was to them. When he realized people were confused by their own over-thinking, Scott began teaching others to understand reality. He is currently CBC Radio Active’s Wellness Columnist, as well as a writer, speaker and mindfulness instructor based in Edmonton, AB where he still finds it strange to write about himself in the third person.
