Meditating All the Time.

Quote.

When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.

Question:

I’m 70 and retired – As long as I stay safe, would it be any harm to meditate every waking moment as I’m going about my activities?

Response:

There are some meditations that can be done with the eyes open and therefore practiced when you don’t need any significant external attention, such as walking on the beach or in the forest. Certainly eyes-closed meditations shouldn’t be done unless you are sitting quietly and undisturbed.

Also, it’s worth reviewing the purpose of meditation here. We don’t meditate for its own sake, we meditate to help our dormant awareness wake up permanently, so we can use this self-awareness to live our life more effectively, more easily and more joyfully. That process of stabilizing self-realization requires both direct experience in the silence of meditation as well as daily activity to integrate that silence. Both steps are required. If you spend too much time in meditation without enough activity and focus to balance it, then all that extra meditation time can make you too spacey and disconnected to society and your environment.

Love,

Deepak
