Lions Roar : July 2012
32 SHAMBHALA SUN JULY 2012 PERHAPS YOU’RE STRESSED. No doubt this is the age of stress. For- tunately, there are many things you can do about it. Among them, a number of styles of meditation will help to slow things down, give you a bit of space, a moment of calm in the storm. There sure seem to be a lot of storms that need calming. So it’s natural that many are turning to meditation as a significant help toward mental and physical well-being. Of course that’s not the only reason people turn to meditation. Nor is it even the most important. Perhaps you’ve experienced some spiri- tual question. Maybe you have a sense there’s something missing in your life. Perhaps you’ve noticed that whether things are going well or badly there always seems to be a hole. This longing for some sense of wholeness is what brings many to meditation. Or maybe you’re thinking that things are possibly not the way every- one seems to think they are. You’ve noticed discrepancies between what you’ve been told and what you actually see and hear and experience. And, with that, perhaps you have an intuition that meditation of one sort or another might point you toward a deeper, more accurate take on what really is. I WANT TO BE... Peaceful All enlightened qualities start with a peaceful mind, one that is stable, open, and awake. It all begins, says JAMES ISHMAEL FORD, with the simple practice of sitting down, shutting up, and paying attention. ILLUSTRATIONS BY MIKE HOLMES
