I want to help you start 2015 with a clean slate, but the unfortunate truth is that on January 1st, you don't get a clean slate. Your slate is a day more marred and scarred than it was on December 31st.
Everyday we are being programed by experience. Our past leaves its legacy and that cannot be erased by a change of the calendar date. Despite our intellect telling us that there might be a better way of thinking and acting, our default mode of operating is based on all our yesterdays. It is the equivalent of trying to create a beautiful mural on a wall covered by decades of graffiti and filth.
The new paint does not stick, at least not in the way we intend. If we want to make a change, we need to do some cleaning first. That's what Vedic Meditation does, it clears away the decades of accumulated stress, deletes outdated programing, scrapes off the old paint. It gives us a clean slate, a fresh canvas. From there, we can build and create and evolve into our best selves.
So if you plan to quit smoking, join a gym or start a new diet, or otherwise try to get your act together, learn Vedic Meditation first. It will give you the foundation for successful positive change.
Wishing you the best in 2015.
With Love and Gratitude,
