In all the wrong places
I used to look to my husband to support my meditation practice. Not just support, but foster, boost, amplify, etc. One of my Integral friends pointed out to me that my husband didn’t feel the drive to meditate as strongly as I did – therefore he didn’t meditate as much as I was desiring to meditate myself. Funny place to look for support.
Now you might think I could have figured that out for myself, but you would be wrong.
My shift in where to look for support in new frontiers of development, enlightenment, etc. took someone else pointing it out. As this person already embodied the changes I was wanting for myself, he could help support me in getting there. Brilliant.
So this week, I found myself giving the same advice. If you want to start meditating – find some meditators. If you want to start eating healthier – begin frequenting organic food stores and notice what the healthiest looking people there are dropping into their baskets. If you want friends who do yoga and therefore will support your budding practice- start going to yoga class regularly. You’ll meet people even without trying to meet people simply by being around them. Consciously change where you are looking for support to places where this support is already in place.
