L E T T E R – What’s Really Stopping Us

I get this kind of question/pondering all the time, along the lines of…‘So I really really feel that meditation would be great for me, but I also have this nagging voice that says, you won’t end up doing it/it’s so expensive/what if you’re the one person Integrated Meditation doesn’t work for/what if it’s a waste of time.. but in my heart, I really long to learn and practice, so what should I do???’.

Now you can take out the word ‘meditation’ and insert anything here really that your heart calls for. My answer is always something like this;

When we are about to embark on something that we know deep down will serve us and fulfil our hearts, the ego has a meltdown. It will kick up the biggest fuss, screeching inside about why this is a terrible idea. The ego doesn’t want us fulfilled and evolving, it wants us at our worst. I use this as a signal that this is actually likely a very wise decision indeed and usually always proceed with it. Turning down the volume on my ego is something I am always interested in doing. If it’s yelling and distracting me I wonder what it’s hiding me from. Now, this is different to deep intuition or a strong gut feeling. You must already know the ego sequence – first comes excitement and heart pounding or genuine curiosity and a feeling of wonder. Then the ego circus and overthinking starts. The talking ourselves out of it.

Now whether or not you learn meditation or embark on anything, is something I can’t actually answer if it’s right for you. But if you recognise this storyline and can be brave enough to move past the ego, you’ll always be rewarded.
