I was thinking today of people that I admire and the one that came to mind is Marianne Williamson. I admire how she was such a trail blazer for those on a spiritual quest like myself 15 years ago. She spoke of spirituality and energy at a time when most people thought she was nuts. However, I read everything of her’s I could get my hands on and even drove to Detroit to see her speak at the church she had formed there. It was a life changing experience. That day I saw that it was ok to have different views about the world and speak your mind to a large group of people. I also learned that day that there were many people like myself that were interested in spirituality as a way of life. I was not so alone in my quest.
And as is our custom now, I didn’t just think about her, I goggled Marianne and found this wonderful video titled Start Your Day Right with Marianne Williamson which you can view at:
She reminds us that what we do in the morning can effect our whole day. Not just our outlook but our focus and productivity. She states that people say that they don’t have time to mediate each morning. She reminds us that when you mediate you actually will have more time and that Einstein said “time and space are just an illusion of consciousness”. She reminds us all that when we connect to a strong inner life the outer becomes less of a struggle.
So if things have gotten hectic in your business and/or personal life and you want to have more time, start your day off right. Keep the TV off, don’t read the newspaper and especially not your e-mail first thing….instead find a quiet space and mediate for 20 minutes. Mediation has many benefits especially when you are a spiritual entrepreneur and are looking to increase the guidance/help from spirit/energy/god/intuition in your daily work. Personally I I know that my days are better when I meditate then when I don’t.
So start tomorrow morning….you no longer have the excuse that you don’t have the time.
