My Wish for You This Year

By Ben Turshen

Many of us view the new year as a clean slate, a time to re-prioritize our choices and dedicate ourselves to improving our lives and our relationships with our best intentions at hand. 

The challenge is not in the choosing itself--for the most part, we know what we should be doing. Spending time with family and friends, exercising regularly, eating healthy nutritious food, finding time to relax, being patient, kind and compassionate to others. The list goes on. The problem we face is that regardless of our intention, we are destined behave and act according to the baseline level of stress that we've accumulated in our minds and bodies. One of the greatest and most profound benefits of practicing Vedic Meditation is the efficient removal of this stress from our physiology. The result is that we are then able to function in accordance with our intention and the significance of that cannot be overstated. This is my wish for you this year.
