Meditation is good for all
I am writing this message to share my appreciation of my positive impacts from my meditation practice. I had always believed that
meditation is good for all, no matter who you are or where you are from, but never known the great impact until I have started meditation since late 2019.
Before the practice, I found that life was not that easy in order to live happily. With family issues, unhealthy working environment and the effect of negativity from the other people, I felt so stressed and depressed. However, I had to find the solution and emotional support for myself to survive that hard time. Luckily, one of my friends in my former company recommended me one meditation page, namely Phnom Penh Meditation center. Few days after, I joint the its event, and I was fond of the technique and method of meditation. Since then, I decided to join a membership and started meditation.
Many days of practice passed, and I noticed the positive change of my mood. Working environment, family situation and people around me remain the same, but the way I have to react to those things and people are different. I am less angry, disappointed, devastated annoyed and depressed. On the other hand, now I feel calm and respond to situation effectively and efficiently. Moreover, insomnia used to hit me hard too since I was always over thinking, but now I find it easy to fall asleep quickly. Thank to meditation and helper, Madame Sunny Hwang. The more I meditate, the clearer I find myself, who deserve mindful peace from inside. The more I meditate, the more I focus on my goals.
Hence, because of those positive impacts mentioned above, I would recommend this meditation to you. It clears your mind effectively, and surely you will find your inner peace which nothing can take from you.
Inner peace, inner power in my mind
Before doing this meditation I lived in the negative thinking. I always blamed myself and blamed my family “Why they don’t understand me?” It made me feel so disappointed and failed. I felt stressed and anxious, and I easily got upset or angry.
One day, I saw the seminar “How to live truly” at meetup.com and I joined this meditation. It’s great and I feel so lucky to have this opportunity.
After one month, now I feel better. I don’t think too much. I take it easy and focus on more the job. Specially I feel happy and be humble. I am so small in the universe. So why do I need to blame myself and the world? Just throw them away and find how to live truly.
Thanks to my helper who knows my problem. Thanks to the universe and all people whoever are good or bad.
A brand new concept to me
I have always been living with exclusively with anxiety since age 0! I have always wished liberty but had been taught to seek safety and stability instead. I could neither find safety, nor stability, so I had to learn to cope with my long lasting worries.
After too many years running the rat race all around the world, I ended living in Cambodia, where I started considering another way to find an answer to my problems.
I started doing this meditation, a brand new concept to me, throwing away all my remembered thoughts instead of piling up unproven doctrines over my existing worries. Even if I only reached the end of level 1 out of 7 to this day, I have begun to feel somehow relieved, despite being aware that much more is to be achieved.
This Meditation is Helpful
In the past, I was a depressed and a negative person. My perspective in life was very narrow. However, I have found this meditation is helpful that can cure my way of thinking, my mind to become broad. After level 1 throwing away my remembered thoughts, step by step I can see the differences between my past and my present. As a result, meditating made a big chance of the way. And made my body lighter than before, feel fresh and brighter than before. At last but not least, I have learnt that life is as good as your mindset. Thank you for this method.
I See the World is More Beautiful and Fresh
The negative mind has been reduce little by little, the way I see the world is more beautiful and fresh. I start to have courage to do the things that I want to achieve. I’m looking forward to see more positive results in the next levels. Thank you.
More Confident, Calm and Less Stress
Before I do meditation, I was a kind of person who like to dream, imagine everything that will happen and sometime it’s impossible. But now I don’t dream much just only think abort now and do the best what I am doing, be more confident, calm and less stress.
After this meditation, between level 1 and level 6, I see that my way of living is different. I feel happier without stress and peaceful with the true world. And I believe that I’ll become a truth universe’s mind soon.
Thoughts Become Decreasing
Before meditation, I have a lot of things to think about, especially my study. Sometimes I can’t focus on my math class. When I was worried about something, I can’t do anything. After meditation, I feel fresh and cut down my thinking. The remembered thoughts become decreasing. Hope to find meaning of my life when I finished this meditation.
I Learned to Accept Life As it Flows.
Passing level 2 was refreshing. Way back, before I meditated, I was REALLY stressed because of studying. Every night I would think of freedom from studying. Yes, I like to study, but I also need a break. And I also get angry at very unnecessary things. Level 1 was just my first time to happiness. After passing level 1, I already felt the change, I felt so much happier. Now, I passed level 2 and I feel so peaceful and I can see my past faults very clear, so I can get rid of my fake human mind. I learned to accept life as it flows.
I Could See the Difference
Thank you for guiding me the method of meditation. I have been meditating for 2weeks. This method is really good. After I finished level 1, I feel more happier than before. Moreover, my overthinking reduce. After 1 month, I could see better results: My mind feel relax, happy, motivate and satisfy. My body feel warm, release more oxygen, produce more energy. My eyes look better. I could change my habits of thinking and respect my own timetables. I could see the difference. Thank you to the method
I Don’t Easily Get Angry
This meditation is? “simple and so powerful”
Before meditation, the life I have lived from the outside looked good. Perhaps to the eyes of the people around me I was happy and confident with family, school and work but I was very worried and always felt pressured within. I always had this need to please everyone and was obsessed about maintaining an image for a good person in front of others. I was always hiding behind my fake smiles and heavy make-up, covering myself up to be perfectly good. Through the meditation I realized that this was all because I was so worried about how the world saw me. I was so worried that I never wore white socks or bright colors because people could then see how dirty my feet were. I felt as if the world was judging me for every little thing about me. My insecurities always overwhelmed me that I was haunted with insomnia.
However, reflecting back at my life, the meditation has really helped me see that I was only living inside this bubble. I was stuck inside a place where I cared only about my self-centered views and comparing myself and wanted to become better with my own standards that I had made to myself. Now that I look back at myself, I was so ridiculous! Riddling myself with so many worries.
I have done the meditation from level 2 in Korea, so I have not yet met people that know of the old me. However, even the people here say that from the time I’ve been here that I look brighter. I see my own change too, my insomnia is gone and I dance around in whatever colored socks, without makeup. When I no longer rely on the opinion of others, I feel much stronger and free. The greatest gift the mediation has allowed me is to allow me to see that the world does not spin around me. I have been living only for myself. For me, the greatest part of this meditation is to see reality, the true world, outside of my bubble.
You start to see yourself, the way you are in all aspects of your life
The cool thing about this meditation method is that it has this ability to show you who you are from a much bigger perspective than yourself. It is really hard to see yourself as yourself, so the method has this way of showing yourself from a bigger perspective. Then you get to reflect on yourself on how you actually are and you see things in yourself. And I saw things in myself that I did not realize that I had before the method. I think that is one of the biggest strength of this meditation. Speaking from my own experience, I found it really hard to bring big changes within myself but this method has helped me get rid of my habits and useless negative thoughts.
I am definitely happier now and also just more relaxed. I feel better within myself and that is the best way to define happiness for me. Also, I am more focused. I mean I work with computers and it is important to have patience and really be able to focus throughout the day. I work with my head the whole day, thus it is so important to be able to be relaxed within myself. Not always trying to move, not always thinking about something else, just staying put; and the meditation has definitely helped me with that.
The meditation has also improved me as a husband and father. One problem that I think in many relationships I find is; you have this expectation of the other to give you something the whole time. You want to get something from that person. And I think the meditation has changed that perspective for me and my wife. It is now more about putting in the work yourself without underlying expectations for one another. Also, this meditation has changed the way I see my children. I seem them more as the way they are than I did before as a parent and as a father. There was a certain bias that came with the strong attachment that I had for my children. Getting rid of that, I think you start to see your family in a more realistic way. This is also good for the kids, because they feel that and they feel actually more relaxed around me.
The difference in my life … can be described with one word: Gratitude.
I don’t have any dramatic life story to tell. From the outside, my life looks quite ordinary. I grew up in a safe environment in a suburb in the outskirts of Stockholm. I had friends, a Nintendo video game and everything a kid could wish for. My family was not religious and relatively open-minded, so I was free to make my own life decisions. I graduated from university and got a job at an IT company and thought I would be happy but, in my mind, I was never truly happy. Every time I achieved something that I wanted, I just wanted something else, something more. I was constantly stuck in my thoughts with my wandering mind. I was always wondering, stuck in my own thoughts, asking myself why I had so many thoughts in my head. I tried so many different things to find an answer but everything I tried only gave me a temporary release.
Though very quickly I realized by doing this meditation that this thinking was about myself and the reason that I think so much and why I was so stressed was because I was caring only about myself. For me, I used to carry things that were unnecessary. I knew that ruminations were unnecessary and bad for me but I didn’t want to nor know how to let go. However, through this meditation method I learnt how to truly let go of the worries and thoughts and to me that is true relief.
Now, there is a huge difference between the me before and the me now. Before, I needed so many things in life to be happy. I needed my hobby and I needed to have certain people in my life. I thought I needed a lot of things. Now I have no worries about the future so with this mind I can just live and the universe will take care of things for me. Now I have also learned that when I sincerely care about others more than myself my stress fades away and I now know how to truly contribute to the world. The difference between my life before and after the meditation can be described with one word: Gratitude.
I feel so much gratitude for this meditation, for being able to let go, and for being able to confirm with my mind that I am fundamentally one with everything around me.
Be the change you want to see in the world
I think when I was born I chose 100% heart and zero head. I love people and love to help them. That has been part of my life for a long time and even the success in my career comes from it. However there came a point in my life where I sought for ways to help others but drove myself insane because I could not find a way to help the other. Once, one of my family members was suffering from depression. There was nothing that I could do to help and knowing that I couldn’t help that person brought me to an even deeper depression. However, once I started the meditation, I noticed a change in me. I realized that only I can change myself and only I can help myself. It was no longer about my need to help and improve others but it was more about being an example to the people who require the help. I found a way to show true compassion and love to others by helping myself. Everything I do and want to say in a short version is that ‘live by example and be the chance you want to see in the world.’
When I started the meditation in the U.S., my career grew a lot faster. People were nicknaming me as a “superstar” and I was awarded a title as the ‘Top 5 Person’ within my industry with a promotion of an executive VP. Though my career was successful I realized that my job made me so busy. I knew there were a lot of opportunities for me to grow through the meditation and I knew to gain something I needed to sacrifice something. Thus with a bold decision, I chose to go to Korea to invest in myself and it was not just a gold mine, but a diamond mine. I can see that most people who want to try the meditation are just so busy with their lives, but I wish they take a moment to invest in themselves to find what is that they truly want in their lives. For me, I just love who I am inside right now. The language and food was very different in Korea but it is nothing compared to the depth of the gratitude I have for the method because it has changed my whole entire life. Though the past 4 months of meditation in Korea, I was able get over my traumatic experiences in my past, conquer my phobias, and be free from the health conditions that has been following me all life. Many people tell me that I’ve changed a lot and tell me that I look brighter and younger.
At this point, my heart is full of joy and love and gratitude. So with this gratitude that is inside, I want to give this out to other people now, by being an example.
