Each of us has our own unique path.
In the Vedic Tradition, we say that each individual has their own dharma, their own purpose and role within the process of Evolution.
The more we live our own dharma, the more frictionless life is.
So when we experience less friction, that’s how we know we’re on the right path.
Frictionless does not mean non-action or non-effort. In fact, there can be quite a bit of activity involved. However, it is performed in an inspirational way.
As meditators, we locate our path through the mechanism of following charm. Charm does not require ratification from our intellect. Instead, it is something we detect on the intuitive level.
Following charms feels at once attractive and frictionless. It is inspirational. When we detect charm, in order to follow it we simply need to say “Yes” to it.
Saying “Yes” is like giving ourselves permission – permission to let go and follow what feels right. That part takes practice, because the mind insists on logically reasoning through all the contingencies first.
The good news is that the more we meditate, the more developed our intuition becomes, and therefore the harder it is to ignore. The reason is that our intuition is born of our senses.
As stress is released, our senses “open up” and are able to deliver vital information with less distortion and ambiguity. The signals becomes clearer and easier to follow.
Then all we need to do is say “Yes.”
It’s easy to reaffirm your meditation practice. Be consistent and practice.
