The health benefits of inner peace
I’m not certain if it is the most overused word in the English language, but if it isn’t it soon will be. I see it on TV, hear it on the radio, on podcasts in magazines, everywhere. People in all walks of life and with myriad life experiences are touting its virtues while others claim it is simply “bunk”. From the Indian Swami to the housewife of South Georgia, everyone has got something to say, and worse, knows a method that will make you younger, stronger, more beautiful (handsome), and build up your sex life to adolescent levels. It’s easy, they say, safe and in only 30 days you will get marvelous results.
If you haven’t guessed by now, we are talking about Meditation.
As with most chatter, all of it is correct, yet none of it is. Meditation may do all the good things they say, but to get the benefits, like everything else in life you are going to have to work at it. It is not a 30-day cure all. It is a life long pursuit that will please and delight you and bring you closer to your true self.
