No time to meditate. Really?

When we are busy, we find it difficult to meditate.

There are many reasons for it. A busy home schedule, busy working hours, demanding boss, demanding wife, naughty kids and many other distracting things.

Most of us are not multi-millionaires having all the facilities of life at our disposal. We have to work hard to make a living. And we like it or not- making a living involves work and it simply means less time for ourselves.

Many people think that religion and spirituality are the things of old and retired people. It is because that mostly see old people doing spiritual stuff.

In my opinion, it is not the case.

Old people get into religion and spirituality because they have time. Young just can’t afford it. They have no time for this stuff. As such it is not a young and old type of thing. At the core, it is only a matter of those who have time and those who don’t have it.

Now coming back to finding time for meditation.

When we say that we have no time for meditation, are we really being true to ourselves?

Do you really have no time for meditation? Really?

If the answer is yes, you need to do a reality check.

It may sound a bit harsher but having no time for ourselves simply points towards the fact that we are not having proper priorities in life.

I recommend you to read this eye opening article on the busy people:

If You’re Busy, You’re Doing Something Wrong: The Surprisingly Relaxed Lives of Elite Achievers

For me reading this article was a hard hitting experience. It reinforce the truth which i have read many times: The busiest people on earth are the most relaxed and they always find the time to do the things of their choice.

Before reacting to this article, I again suggest you to read this article. Here are the concluding paras of this wonderful piece of advice:

” If you’re chronically stressed and up late working, you’re doing something wrong. You’re the average players from the Universität der Künste — not the elite. You’ve built a life around hard to do work, not hard work.”

Hope this will kindle some bulb in your head.
