Sorry for off topic, but at this time my life goes in very weird way. I have a job, but I work for few days on and off, is that possible that meditation making ways to change the job for another? Maybe life is guiding me somewhere where I can be better?
Sorry for these questions, I can't ask in more understandable way due my limited english.
you don't need to apologise for asking questions and I understand you clearly. I agree completely with Giles and wish you much peace in your life.
Here's a suggestion that I believe will really help you. Every day, take just a few minutes and think of everything you are grateful for in your life. To develop an attitude of gratitude is very empowering.
As you become aware of your mind worrying or perhaps criticising you, just start thinking of all the things you are grateful for. You are more powerful than you think Domas and you can create the changes you want. I will find Dennis Whaitley's poem "The Power of Habit" and add it to this post.
I look forward to hearing how you progress and wish you much peace and joy
The Power of Habit by Dr. Denis Waitley
"You may know me.
I'm your constant companion.
I'm your greatest helper; I'm your heaviest burden.
I will push you onward or drag you down to failure.
I am at your command.
Half the tasks you do might as well be turned over to me. I'm able to do them quickly, and I'm able to do them the same every time,
if that's what you want.
I'm easily managed; all you've got to do is be firm with me.
Show me exactly how you want it done; after a few lessons I'll do it automatically.
I am the servant of all great men and women; of course,
I'm the servant of all the failures as well.
I've made all the winners who have ever lived.
And, I've made all the losers too.
But I work with all the precision of a marvelous computer
with the intelligence of a human being.
You may run me for profit, or you may run me to ruin;
it makes no difference to me.
Take me. Be easy with me, and I will destroy you.
Be firm with me, and I'll put the world at your feet.
Who am I?
Habits are replaced, not broken. Habits are like submarines. They run silent and deep. Habits grow by observation, imitation and repetition from cobwebs into cables to strengthen or shackle our lives. First we make our habits, then our habits make us.
Success and failure are both habit-forming. Find mentors and role models with proven track records of success and emulate them."
We often form habits that take care of the way we look on the outside yet we often fail to form the habit of looking inward to take care of what matters most.
Creating the regular habit of meditation allows the harmful habits to be released allowing us to become familiar with a new and healthier way of being.
The power of habit is truly amazing. I am so thankful for the habits of meditation and gratitude - they make life tremendous
