Living Life On Purpose

How A Spiritual Practice Can Help In These Troubled Times

Worldwide tragedies including natural disasters and the great harm inflicted on others by an individual fill our media headlines. How can we hold all that is taking place and continue to live life? How can we be part of the solution and make a difference? Can a spiritual practice make a difference? 

Sharon Wikoff discussed these questions with guest, Kathleen Mc Teigue, last week on the Voice For Truth, at www.VoiceAmerica.com VARIETY CHANNEL  / 9 AM Pacific Time. 

We'd love to continue the conversation here! 
   
KATHLEEN MC TEIGUE:



Siritual teacher, Kathleen McTeigue. discussed the journey inward and asked us to ponder questions such as:

What motivates people to go within? 




What can we learn about ourselves on the inner journey of discovery? 

Do we need a teacher? 

Kathleen used the metaphor of the ocean, to speak about the journey inward.  She says, 

"The other life, the events of the world are like the surface of the ocean.  By journeying within we can learn how to dive deep into the depths of the ocean where we can discover the peace, love and balance we're all longing for.  We can also discover that we can't be separate from the source of existence any more than a wave can be separate from the ocean."

Please share your thoughts and ideas here about these questions. We'd love to hear your ideas. 

If you'd like to be in touch with Kathleen, you can reach her at www.KathleenMcTeigue.com 

MEDITATION: 

Kathleen also mentioned that meditation is an excellent way to journey inward.  Kathleen says it helps us to drop down out of the busy mind into our depths.  A lot of people get discouraged because they cn't uiet their minds and they think that means they can't do it. Like any new skill, it takes practice.  I guess that's why we call it a meditation practice. 

TIME MAGAZINE:   
Recently I picked up a special edition of  TIME Magazine, entitled Mindfulness.   It is there was an short article on "A Five-Minute Meditation by Sharon Liao. 
Here is a brief overview of her steps. 
1st minute:  Brathe deeply
2nd minute:  find your natural pace
3rd minute:  stay focused
4th minute:  relax
5th minute:  give thanks

Please feel free to write about your experience or share your comments about this blog. We'd love to hear from you. 

In Joy, 
sharon
