We take stock of who we are, what our challenges are, what we're good at, what we desire, who we love, etc. We heal old charges and old worn out beliefs, upgrading them to who we really are. We do it because it is healing and insightful, and because of this, it feels really good.
Healing and repatterning our minds back to their natural states means one great thing for us: we are polishing our spiritual graces and really coming into our 'power' as creative individuals. Creativity strengthens immensely with personal development and meditation due to our newfound mental clarity and natural purification that Vipassana offers.
On the opposite end of the spectrum to clarity and creativity lie jealousy, envy, and boredom. These are stagnant states of being based on not knowing ourselves, not feeling competent as human beings, comparisons with others, not feeling worthy, doubt, anxiety, and other awesome traits.
I say 'awesome', because it IS awesome that these naturally fall away (burn off, dissolve, disappear, release, etc) when we get to know ourselves. These are based in darkness, and darkness is simply the absense of Light. In Vipassana we shine our Light, our Awareness, on our bodies and minds for hours in retreats and daily sittings until the darkness naturally leaves.
There are 1000s of personal development and empowerment programs out there. Simply devote yourself in faith to one. Vipassana meditation is one of them, and it does the things listed above along with so many other wonderful goals. Releasing the dark haze of jealousy, boredom, and envy is a byproduct of simple life-improvement. Imagine never being bored again. We can enjoy sitting in an empty room for hours, and when we realize how empowering this is, we can thrive anywhere.
We look forward to your comments, your stories of how you persevered over boredom and stupidity, and how you welcomed your Light, your abilities, your peace, and your unique truths.
Come join us at a 10-day retreat anytime. Vipassana is a 'foundation system' in that it marries well with so many of the other systems in existence and ends up empowering these, so you master yourself even more.
That spells 'Bonus' for us all... including your inner calm and prosperity.
