Less is more. Nothingness is bliss.
Being busy and constantly looking for things to do without taking a breather is a disease. It is a very stressful disease. I have been afflicted with this problem since I was a young schoolboy when my mother could not stand the sight of me doing nothing. The non-stop activity has always given me an adrenaline rush and gives me a feeling of
Self-importance. But, when the activities stop, there is an emptiness that I want to fill, then, I will compulsively begin the cycle all over again by doing something new.
I was very lucky that this meditation presented itself when I was looking for a new activity to do because it was in this meditation that I understood the value and essence of the emptiness that I wanted to fill.
I learned that it is not adding more that will lead to satisfaction but, it is actually subtracting the imprints in my mind’s world that will be the start of my true fulfillment.
Less is more. Nothingness is bliss.
Through meditation, I have realized many benefits. These include mental clarity; improved physical health; greater capacity for understanding the shortcomings of other people and; even exercising patience (with a smile) on the road during blood-curdling traffic jams. I am truly grateful to this simple method that has life-changing benefits.
Today, rather than being busy with non-essential activities to satisfy my mind, I am diligently practicing meditation so I can truly live in the real world.
My mind stays at peace without forcing myself
I tried meditation because I wanted to heal the pain over the death of my husband. I never thought that meditation will give me more than healing but a new life.
When that crisis happened to me, I find life, harder to accept. The pain is like my daily reality that I became lonelier and hopeless. I feel sickly, irritable, always angry and cannot contribute much at work. I cannot find my motivation so I always cry. I cannot pull myself back to my feet.
Even if I pray hard, read all the self-help books & even the Bible, attend seminars, I still don’t know what to do with my life. I always asked myself, “why can’t I be happy?”
No one knows what is happening to me because I always pretend to my loved ones & friends that I am strong and I can do everything. But deep inside, I am crumbling down.
I know that I need to face it because I feel I am drowning, up to the point that I cannot breathe anymore. I needed help because what is happening to me is beyond me.
When I see in front of my eyes that my children are getting affected badly because of the picture I painted, I surrender. I don’t want them to be like me.
Now, after more than 24 months of diligent meditation, I am almost at the end of the 7 levels.
I can say from then on, I changed a lot positively and so did my life. I find happiness everywhere. It feels like I am being reborn.
The investment of my time discarding has helped me understand and learn a lot of things.
I have given up the need to always be right.
I can now allow things to happen which have thought me to let go easily and to give up the need to control.
By emptying my mind, I find my quiet pace without having to go through some self-defeating talk or having to worry on judgment or criticism from other people.
I have learned to give up complaining and blaming anyone. Instead I now find myself start to take responsibility of my actions.
I don’t give in to excuses and to other people’s expectations anymore, not to mention my expectations of other people.
I became open to change and give up my limiting beliefs.
I learn that we only create our own fear so when I empty my mind, I am now able to accept even the unknown future.
I learn to detached too so I can coexist with everyone.
Now, I find happiness everywhere, it’s like the wind, you cannot see nor touch it but you know it is there.
The daily clutter I throw away through meditation has helped me embrace my authentic self and has given me an unexplainable peace.
And with peace comes the unbelievable gratitude I have in my heart…it is overflowing. The more I empty myself, the more I give thanks. What follows is the feeling of unfathomable peace.
I am amazed at the power of the emptying the mind. With this method, I now understand how to be one with God.
Truly, without the self is the way to everlasting life.
It is the best study one can ever have!
It took me five years to complete this meditation due to my stubborn mind but I can honestly say that it is the best education one can ever have about the self and the universe. Prior to joining this meditation, I attended numerous courses on self-mastery, leadership trainings, life coaching and even NLP certification. Through this meditation, I could enlighten my true self and experience the oneness which is universe within me. With this meditation, I can break-free from all the stress, worries and anxieties that comes with my job. Now, I can do and accomplish more without the stress and most importantly with the peace of mind and real happiness that no amount of money and material things can provide.
I highly recommend this meditation for those who want to discover their inner self and learn about the never-changing, everlasting, living universe existence that is within all creation.
This Meditation Brought True Happiness When There Was No Hope.
Have you ever had to deal with losing your job? Have you ever gotten divorced? Have you ever had to deal with the death of a parent or loved one? Have you ever had an accident so serious that it required multiple surgeries and a lengthy recovery?
Well, I experienced all of these things in the course of 3 years in my lifetime. I’m not sharing my story to get your sympathy. My intent is to illustrate just how dark and hopeless a man’s life can get and that there is a way out of the pain.
All of the events I mention happened so fast, I didn’t know what to do. Since I was a very young boy, I had always dealt with depression and anxiety. I also had skin problems and digestive problems because of the stress in my life. After all of these events, all of my problems got worse. I was at the lowest point in my life. I was so depressed I was actually frozen. I couldn’t answer the phone or go out with friends. Some days I couldn’t get out of bed or find a reason to stop sleeping. I didn’t eat. I had trouble finding any happiness in life. I was on medication for pain, anxiety, depression, my skin condition and high blood pressure. I tried exercise and changing my diet to healthier foods but all of these changes were only bringing temporary relief. I was miserable and withdrawn and didn’t want to be around anyone. Even when I was around others, I still felt lonely and sad. My doctor diagnosed me with severe depression and this scared me even more. I really felt like there must be a point to life; I needed a purpose for living.
While I was recovering from my accident, I had a lot of time to sit and think about my next step. It was the darkest time in my life and I remember thinking that of all the things I’d done – joining the Army, going to college, my career and my marriage – nothing I’d achieved brought me any fulfillment. I achieved many goals in my lifetime but nothing ever brought me the satisfaction that I thought it would once I attained what I was after. I found myself becoming reflective and seeking spirituality. I was looking for something that would give my life a purpose.
In the town I live in, this meditation center had a sign up for a free lecture. I’d driven past the Center 3 or 4 times that particular week and thought that this meditation might be a good thing to bring some peace and spirituality back into my life. Finally, one day I stopped in and listened to the lecture and I can tell you, honestly, I didn’t know what to make of a lot of the information that was shared with me. The one thing that I did connect with was that I felt like I was all alone because I was living in my own little world in my head. I knew that I had built a world in my mind of how I thought everything should be and nothing and nobody could ever match my view of my world.
That one connection was enough to get me to sign up and meditate for the first time. I meditated for two classes in a row that evening and began throwing away my remembered thoughts. The next day, I found myself running back to meditate again. The relief was that significant. After a week of meditating, I started to feel brighter and realized that I wasn’t alone at all; I belonged and was part of this world. Everything began to look beautiful in my life. People were beautiful. Houses were beautiful. The sky was beautiful!
I’d never felt this way before and all of the medication, exercise, diets and doctors that I’d dealt with in my entire life had never been able to make me feel this positive and connected to the world. None of these things worked. They were all just coating the real problem and giving me a temporary feeling of relief. I knew at that point that this meditation was the reason I was getting better and so I meditated diligently for the next year. In that time, I was able to get back in the game – back into life! I got off of all my medication and felt even better. My doctor was shocked when he saw how positive and happy I was. My blood pressure returned to normal. My signs of anxiety and depression had faded away. For the first time in my life, my skin was clear and back to normal. It was a miracle! I realized that all of my life, I was living in my own dark picture world in my mind and that was what made me so sick. None of the medications I’d been prescribed or any of the doctors I had seen were able to make me feel any better, but here I was – finally cured.
I found peace, fulfillment, TRUE HAPPINESS and a purpose for my life. By discarding all of my thoughts, pictures, memories and standards, I was starting to feel the benefits of a healthier, cleaner mind and my physical body was able to function properly, ultimately healing all of my ailments – both mental and physical.
I started to wake up and stopped living in my own thoughts all of the time. My relationships improved. People asked me why I was smiling and I didn’t even realize that I was smiling. I began to work more effectively. I became able to accept others as they are and accept the world as it is without the judgment I used to impose on everything in my life. You can’t imagine how grateful I am to this meditation. Freedom from my own miserable thoughts has brought peace and wisdom into my life.
As I said earlier, I’m not sharing my story to get your sympathy. I’m sharing it as a testimonial of what this meditation has done for me and what it will do for you. If you are reading this and you identify with any part of my story, I strongly urge you to begin this meditation immediately! (Even if you don’t identify with any part of my story, I strongly urge you to begin this meditation immediately!) In our society, there are so many people who look completely happy and successful from the outside because they earn a lot of money or have a great career or because they have an expensive car and a beautiful family. You may be surprised to learn that because we are all living in our own dark mind world, everyone struggles with pain, sadness and loneliness. The urgency of my condition is what drove me to find this meditation faster than others.
There’s a saying that if there are 7 billion people living in this world then there are 7 billion realities. That means 7 billion people all living in their own personal mind worlds. It’s now time for everybody to stop living in their human mind world and co-exist together in reality. No more pain. No more stress. No more burdens. Only love, peace and liberation from pain and struggle.
Even if you can’t accept everything you’ve read in this testimonial or what you hear in the lecture, please just try this method and see for yourself. I promise you will understand everything that you question as you clean your mind. In my case, my mind was so full of stress and pictures it was making me sick – even killing me. I’m not quite finished with this meditation method, but I now know my purpose in life and it brings such great freedom and peace. If I walked out of the lecture that day and hadn’t begun meditating, I don’t even know if I’d still be alive today. Please know that you don’t have to suffer or live with the pain in your mind world. This meditation saved my life and it can save yours too.
It changed myself to live freely
I was given a brochure twice, about this meditation.
I was generally interested in meditation, but there was something about this, which made me curious and went for an introductory seminar.
As i was listening, it became very clear what the mind was, and i was living bound by the story of my life, creating my own mind world, and that was not my natural peaceful state of mind. I wondered all my life why we were all so different.
I changed many conditions in my life, which made me happy for a while, but the same patterns seemed to sneak in. I did the same acts which made me change the conditions in the first place,….endless….. never ended up satisfied or truly happy –always chasing something.
So it made perfect sense, i had to change myself, my mind, to live freely.
I started straight away, and as i was letting go of all the stuff in my mind, i realized a lot of things. I became free from all the fixed ideas and conceptions which I believed as true.
It was such a relief to finally understand myself and became more accepting of others and conditions. My stress just fell off and i could enjoy the moment, it was just like finding the comfortable place without all these thoughts which used to make me indecisive of what to do.
I just changed as i meditated and i felt more comfortable, became more focused and more productive. Most of all, I could have joy for no particular reason.
I became more appreciative. Life became so much simpler and easier. It is just really joyful and peaceful.
I urge everyone just to simply try this amazing meditation, to find the true state of mind, and be free from all these thoughts and stress which are causing conflicts and burden.
Everyone should live freely and joyful and appreciate life, now is the time to live, now is the time to find true happiness. i m grateful to the teachers, helpers, and all the people.
For the first time, I feel that I really have a purpose. I have a true goal and real purpose in life. And that’s a big thing for me.
Without this meditation I would have never been able to reflect back on myself and my life. That’s for sure. Maybe I could have been able to cover up my pain or something with some other method, I don’t know. But I would have never been able to look back on myself and see how I have acted and what my role and my part were in everything. I would still have blamed the world and blamed everybody else and kept that mindset that it was everybody else’s fault and not mine. I’ve come to realize that it’s also a big piece of pride that I’m carrying around. For me it was always very important how I appear to others and I didn’t want to show myself weak, or didn’t want to open up to other people. So I closed myself.
I was always comparing myself with others. If that other somehow had achieved something more than me, I didn’t like that person. If that person had done less than me, then I could be ‘humble’. Then I could be a nice person and take care of that person. Then I thought I was great because I was so nice to that weak person. So that was my life. Always measuring, always trying to come across as the best somehow. If there was no competition, I could be nice.
It might sound strange maybe, at least from the culture I come from where we’re supposed to love ourselves and try to be better all the time. Because that’s something I really tried to do, to love myself, to tell myself I was great. This meditation method is a bit of opposite of that. You realize that you are not great. And that’s actually a big relief. It’s really a big relief. Because it’s a big burden, walking around thinking you are great, and thinking that you have to be great all the time. Now that I am freeing myself from that ego and pride, the world around me has become nicer; it treats me more gently nowadays. Yeah, it’s funny. Before, the world was my enemy. It is not anymore.
I am changing everyday with subtraction method!
After practicing this meditation my life seems so clear and has more meaning. I appreciate now that I was meant to have been a mother and I have a place. I feel gratitude for what I have without wanting more. Relationships with friends have been amended and are more fruitful than ever. I feel more compassion for anyone from strangers right up to those closest to me.
My stress and anxiety is reduced dramatically, even the children and the dogs are less stressed. In the past I always followed my mind. Since following the method and discarding the pictures in my mind I feel I am finding the true me and my fears and insecurities are washed away. Even from the first few levels of this meditation I feel the change in me and I am still changing day by day.
Through all this I can say that this mediation has overcome all that I was and without the method I don’t know what I would have done. I am so grateful to the founder, for the method, everyone at the local centre and all the helpers for saving my life.
I am eternally happy regardless of conditions
I always wished that everyone around me and I were always happy. However, it seemed like happiness was conditional. To fulfill my yearnings for happiness, I participated in sports, music, various social events, volunteering activities, etc. I enjoyed those moments when I kept myself busy, but soon I felt a void within. It seemed like my life was filled with cycles of ups and downs. I questioned the impermanence of life and always feared losing my loved ones. Also I tried to perfect my character by reading self-help books and quotations, but I couldn’t find anything practical that gave me long-lasting happiness.
After my very first session, I felt like the weight of the world had been lifted off of my shoulders. I instantly knew this was the answer. I began to meditate diligently. I was able to discard all of the clutter in my mind, through the simple, precise and logical meditation methods.
Each baggage I discarded raised my level of happiness. After completion of the meditation, I am eternally happy regardless of conditions. I am now able to appreciate my life and everyone around me. I am truly thankful to this meditation, and with the greatest sincerity, I invite you to try it for yourself.
I know I am on my way back home
As soon as I started the practice, and began to throw away the mental pictures of ideas, the concepts about me, the world, my life, and my relationships, I felt as if I am taking a huge burden off from my shoulder. The void that was created by deleting my imaginary world is filled up now with natural clarity. Everything in my life has been positively affected by this meditation. My family relationships, my work, the relationship I have with others, and most importantly, the relationship with me.
I learned to accept others and life events as they are, without analyzing, judging or classifying. The people that I interact with are dealing with me with much more ease now; because there is no need to prove anything to me and I am not trying to prove anything to them.
This meditation allows me to create a “space” between me and the things that are happening to me, and in that space I have the opportunity to decide how to react on whatever that is happening. My life now has meaning, hope, and goals. I know I am on my way back Home. I cordially recommend and invite all of you who are now reading these words to call the nearest center and start practicing it immediately. This meditation changed and saved my life and it will do the very same for yours.
You start to see yourself, the way you are in all aspects of your life
The cool thing about this meditation method is that it has this ability to show you who you are from a much bigger perspective than yourself. It is really hard to see yourself as yourself, so the method has this way of showing yourself from a bigger perspective. Then you get to reflect on yourself on how you actually are and you see things in yourself. And I saw things in myself that I did not realize that I had before the method. I think that is one of the biggest strength of this meditation. Speaking from my own experience, I found it really hard to bring big changes within myself but this method has helped me get rid of my habits and useless negative thoughts.
I am definitely happier now and also just more relaxed. I feel better within myself and that is the best way to define happiness for me. Also, I am more focused. I mean I work with computers and it is important to have patience and really be able to focus throughout the day. I work with my head the whole day, thus it is so important to be able to be relaxed within myself. Not always trying to move, not always thinking about something else, just staying put; and the meditation has definitely helped me with that.
The meditation has also improved me as a husband and father. One problem that I think in many relationships I find is; you have this expectation of the other to give you something the whole time. You want to get something from that person. And I think the meditation has changed that perspective for me and my wife. It is now more about putting in the work yourself without underlying expectations for one another. Also, this meditation has changed the way I see my children. I seem them more as the way they are than I did before as a parent and as a father. There was a certain bias that came with the strong attachment that I had for my children. Getting rid of that, I think you start to see your family in a more realistic way. This is also good for the kids, because they feel that and they feel actually more relaxed around me.
The difference in my life … can be described with one word: Gratitude.
I don’t have any dramatic life story to tell. From the outside, my life looks quite ordinary. I grew up in a safe environment in a suburb in the outskirts of Stockholm. I had friends, a Nintendo video game and everything a kid could wish for. My family was not religious and relatively open-minded, so I was free to make my own life decisions. I graduated from university and got a job at an IT company and thought I would be happy but, in my mind, I was never truly happy. Every time I achieved something that I wanted, I just wanted something else, something more. I was constantly stuck in my thoughts with my wandering mind. I was always wondering, stuck in my own thoughts, asking myself why I had so many thoughts in my head. I tried so many different things to find an answer but everything I tried only gave me a temporary release.
Though very quickly I realized by doing this meditation that this thinking was about myself and the reason that I think so much and why I was so stressed was because I was caring only about myself. For me, I used to carry things that were unnecessary. I knew that ruminations were unnecessary and bad for me but I didn’t want to nor know how to let go. However, through this meditation method I learnt how to truly let go of the worries and thoughts and to me that is true relief.
Now, there is a huge difference between the me before and the me now. Before, I needed so many things in life to be happy. I needed my hobby and I needed to have certain people in my life. I thought I needed a lot of things. Now I have no worries about the future so with this mind I can just live and the universe will take care of things for me. Now I have also learned that when I sincerely care about others more than myself my stress fades away and I now know how to truly contribute to the world. The difference between my life before and after the meditation can be described with one word: Gratitude.
I feel so much gratitude for this meditation, for being able to let go, and for being able to confirm with my mind that I am fundamentally one with everything around me.
