The Sage and the Child session has been the most impact session yet. Something clicked in me. I don’t know what it was but I felt like it all made sense. After listening to the first session, I found myself a constantly reminding me to be the Sage and not the Child. As a result I’ve been more productive and have been able to incorporate more goals into my routine (AND I’ve been able to stick to it).
I've never sat down and purposely meditated before, but since my late teens I have actively tried to calm my thoughts and slow down both my mind and actions. After beginning these short meditations I can see how that has contributed to my calm demeanor and level-headedness: my family and coworkers have been commenting on this recently as I've been going through a stressful time.
The most important thing is consistency, do it every day even if only for a minute or two.
Becoming more mindful can allow you to be more aware of your actions and emotions.
An unexamined life is not worth living.
