Developing Spiritual Muscle

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on November 12, 2012

Comment: Developing spiritual muscle is today’s most needed issue not in theory but in practice.

By Oprah Winfrey

A week ago, many of you started our 21-Day Meditation Challenge with my friend, spiritual wisdom teacher Deepak Chopra. With 14 days to go, I want to encourage you to stay with it. My first attempts years ago were start-and-stop, and I kept thinking, “I must be doing this wrong, ’cause my thoughts are speeding up rather than slowing down.” “Let’s meditate” felt like an invitation for my mind to go whirly-dirly. The chatter and thoughts were incessant; the more I tried to concentrate on a mantra or my breath, the louder and crazier the thoughts. Like CRAY-CRAY crazy (flying elephants and birds with toes, to name a few). That happened every time for about the first week. When I stopped fighting the thoughts — let them be, come and go, didn’t resist, and didn’t TRY to do anything or have any expectation — it gradually got easier.

I’ve since learned that the more stressed we are, the more forceful the chatter. It’s like energy being released through the noise of your mind. Stay with it. With practice, like developing a muscle, your ability to BE STILL and BE ONE with the STILLNESS will come.

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on January 31, 2011

First Lady Michelle Obama appeared on “Oprah” Jan. 27 wearing a sleeveless fuchsia Prabal Gurung sheath dress and Fallon “Victoria Royal” necklace, that had the designers celebrating with congratulatory tweets.

Obama, who has worn Gurung for important occasions before, slipped on the chic and simple fitted dress for a poignant and somewhat somber episode of Oprah Winfrey’s popular talk show.

The First Lady, along with former NBC news anchor Tom Brokaw and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bob Woodward, appeared to bring attention to American soldiers injured or lost in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as their surviving families. Read the rest of this entry »
