MIND AND MEDITATION

sri-sri-_02Have you observed what is happening in your mind every moment? It vacillates between the past and the future. It is either in the past occupied with what has happened or in the future thinking about what you have to do.Knowledge is being aware of this phenomenon of the mind — of what is happening right now in your mind as you are reading this article. Information can be acquired by reading books or browsing the Internet. You can open a book on any subject such as how to lose weight, how to prepare for an interview, success 101 and soon. Th ere are innumerable volumes available on a countless number of topics, but the awareness of your own mind cannot be learnt from a book.There is another tendency of the mind — it clings onto the negative. If 10 positive events are followed by one negative event, the mind will cling to the negative. It will simply forget the 10 positive events.With meditation, however, you can become aware of these two tendencies of the mind and bring it to the present.

Happiness, joy,enthusiasm, efficiency and effectiveness are all in the present.Th e human mind is very complex. It has its delicate and tough aspects. If you have had a misunderstanding with a friend or colleague at work, you can become stiff inside and this can distort your emotions leading to negativity — and you carry this negativity wherever you go.However, when you culture your mind with meditation, its tendency of holding on to negative emotions simply disappears. You gain the ability to start living in the present moment and are able to let go of the past.Balancing the States of Mind In your day-to-day life, you come across all kinds of situations that can be challenging and demanding a degree of alertness to be able to make good choices. These situations give rise to diff erent states of mind and neither life nor the states of mind occur with our permission. In fact, they oft en occur indirect defiance to our wishes.Meditation can bring about a balance between the different states of the mind. You can learn to switch from the tough aspect tothe delicate aspect within you. You can standup when needed and let go when needed.Th is ability is present within everyone, and meditation enables you to switch between these states effortlessly. The whole exercise is to develop an ability — to switch back and forth between the tough and delicate aspects of the mind.One of the biggest deterrents for people not being able to meditate is that they don’t have enough time. Yet when they start to meditate,they fi nd they have more time, because they are able to focus and get more done. Not only that, the regular practice of meditation also leads to greater intuitiveness. It sharpens the mind through focus and expands it through relaxation.With the integration of meditation in today’s daily life, a fifth state of consciousness,called cosmic consciousness, dawns.Cosmic consciousness means perceiving the whole cosmos as part of oneself. When we perceive the world as a part of us, love flows strongly between the world and us. Th is love empowers us to bear the opposing forces and the disturbances in our lives.

 Anger and disappointments become fleeting emotions that occur momentarily and then vanish.Rest and activity are opposite values, but they complement each other. Th e deeper you are able to rest, the more dynamic you will be in activity. Planning can hold you back from diving deep into yourself. Meditation is accepting this moment and living every moment totally with depth.Restlessness, agitation, desire and ambition stir up the mind and keep it engaged planning for the future or being regretful about the past. Real freedom is freedom from the past and future.Th e confluence of knowledge, understanding and practice make life complete. When you grow into higher states of consciousness, you find that you are no longer thrown off balance by different situations and disturbances. A regular practice can transform the quality of your life by culturing the nervous system to maintain peace, energy andexpanded awareness throughout the day.You become beautiful yet strong, capable of accommodating diff erent challenges in life without any conditions.

    勤務中の職場の良いところ、短所をリストアップしてみましょう。次に転職することの改善できること、マイナス面をリストアップしてみましよう。すぐに退職、転職すべきかどうか、客観的に判断する材料になります。退職という判断が出たのなら、きっと今が転職時なのでしよう。ここからは、「失敗しない退職」を考えましよう。看護師はスムースに退職できないことが少なくありません。最初に重要なのは、円満に退職するということ。一時的な感情で「もう辞めます!」と辞表を提出し、職場を辞めてしまわないように。雇用保険や健康保険などの手続きもありますし、退職金、ボーナスなどのもらえるはずのものがもらえず、自分が損をしてしまいます。スムーズに退職の気持ちを伝えましょう。法律上は、退職の意志は、2週間前までに伝えればよいとされています。多くの場合は就業規則で「退職する日の○か月前までに」などと 規定されています。上司の手が空いているタイミングを選び、ソフトに切り出し、退職意志をはっきりと伝えます。いろいろと不満があったとしても、退職までしばらく一緒に働くことを考えると、不満を言うのではなく、退職してどんなキャリアアップをしたいのかなど前向きな理由を伝えます。
