Working with Challenges
Meditation helps us work with demanding situations with more clarity and greater confidence.
About Working with Challenges
Meditation gives us the space to break away from our daily routines, experience the freshness of our minds and enjoy the richness of the present moment. But what about off the cushion or the chair? As soon as we leave our practice zone, more demanding situations will present themselves. These run the gamut from everyday irritations like traffic jams, computer glitches and minor ailments to major crises such as serious illness, the loss of loved ones, jeopardized livelihood and natural disasters.
How does meditation help us navigate life’s challenges, great and small? If meditation only “worked” during practice, it would be of very limited benefit. We might think of our daily mindfulness and awareness meditation as “training sessions” that make our minds more fit, even when the sessions themselves don’t feel like a workout. The true benefits of meditation practice reveal themselves in challenges: we realize that we the have space to assess situations, react less impulsively and prioritize more effectively. We know that our emotions, hopes and fears aren’t the whole story because our experience of mind has made this very clear. We’ve discovered that we can recognize these mental events as they arise, acknowledge and release them and return to a core of serenity and goodwill that’s always there.
Daily situations give us a golden opportunity to further our practice. Without challenges, how would we recognize our strengths and learning curves? Life’s difficulties can make our meditation more genuine and less intellectual and meditation can make life’s difficulties more workable. Working with Challenges modules offer a variety of resources to help you tap into your inner strength and face life’s inevitable challenges with more clarity and greater confidence.
