Mindfulness and meditation aren’t just about spirituality or stress relief.
In today’s world of constant demands and digital distractions, mindfulness is about making your moments truly matter and living up to your full potential. It’s about your power to put your attention where you want it to be and not on what someone else dangles on a screen in front of you.
This is just one reason why Tony Robbins incorporates a gratitude meditation into his daily morning routine to prime his mind every single day.
If you’re familiar with any of Tony Robbins peak performance strategies, you know that your ability to maintain a peak state is a key component of living the life you desire. Your state is affected by the way you use your physical body, your ability to direct your mind’s focus, and the language or meaning you give to your experiences.
Knowing this, it’s no wonder that we aren’t able to be the best version of ourselves when we are in a stressed state. The incoherence of our head and heart, the jitters in our nervous system and body makes us less effective and less resourceful.
In this 1-hour episode you’ll hear from Tony Robbins, his wife Sage Robbins, and podcast host Mary B. as they discuss one of the most valuable skills to maximize your mindset and prime yourself for power, clarity, concentration, and focused attention.

the basis of all relationships with its business of personal and we're.
great communicators, we're not stressed, but
we live in a world where the demands are constant and we can get trained into having that part of
nervous system known as the sympathetic system. If you don't know it is the part that makes you go, go, go go it's that a dream last part
come to dominate our lives and wonder
I've learned is in business. For example, you know the choke
on the growth of a business is always the leader. It's the psychology and the skills of the leader,
your personal life, the quality of your life, really
comes down to the quality of your communications. New relationships will make somebody a greek
Indicator is being able to hear, what's not being said,
But when you're stressed you don't hear other people, you not even able to listen, you think you're with listening, but you're really just trying to
get the job done, and some of the most valuable skills is to manage our psychology and I've. Psychology is eighty percent success and skills.
When percent, and I think meditation
for me when I used to hear about meditation. My mindset was it's a waste of time
Rotation would be going on a run which, by the way, is a form meditation. I ought to be physical, like to be a man
what kind of a dynamic meditation? What I do sittings
still to meditate just didn't seem real to me. I'm just a waste of time and try not to think thoughts. Well, good luck with that, but I started creative way. That way
for me, which I call priming, and I do it every single morning, no matter how busy I am busy you aren't too and so
to be a meditative, you may have to have some giant spiritual outcome, but if you
what the best you to show up for your family for your friends, your business,
for yourself. I think it's important to find a daily practice.
A meditation comes in many forms. I mean it's really important for us to realise that in life,
you dont experience life manifesto. We experienced the life we pay,
tension to we experience what we focus on
The human brain is basically has three skills distorts, deletes and generalized. If you're really angry, you have to delete all the things you could be happy about. It
you're really really happy of delete all things really pissed off, and so, whenever we
focus on wherever focused goes. That's where energy flows
and learning to direct our attention- or our focus is really what this is about, so that you experienced the quality of life,
you really desire and deserve for yourself and for the people who want to serve, and that only happens, if you can do a reset,
and so one can best people I know of on the planet, to talk about this courses my way sage. She is a walk thing. We callers age for a reason, she's she just as this bill

hurdling toward the half way point of twenty twenty two. Can you believe
my heart goes: it doesnt reared in twenty twenty by this time go so vast could perhaps be because
as we need a little more mindfulness. We need a little more meditation in our life. If I was a little more present would it feel like I was getting everything out of these days. What do you think well gosh? It is
if a question you know, I think the gift of meditation is it does it brings us here now its calling our attention back or attention back to this moment,
You know in life to business and through external activity we can
miss you know
we can miss the beauty of the simplicity of moments that life is offering us
and I think that's the beautiful blessing of having a practice is. It start
to tune our

to this moment here now I like, when you got a practice and ngos that something that I can get my my head around legs

and a lot of terms. I think when you don't remember before I started, and I thought like
had this identity, I'm not a meditative,
and yet were all merit
of a moment's, you know,
times where we slow down, and I think when we slow down our energies natural,
come towards our centre and
the whether it's you know going for a walk on the beach or whether it's looking
the waves or ordered you know, watching your puppy bree their play with a toy in the morning or being with her little one, there's those
moments where life slows down and there's a different level of connectivity to the moment, and I think that that is

I can do that. You do what you do and I think that's a beautiful gift for those out there. There is saying I'm

however, even as someone who lose
nature might be a little slow and watery ay
never my thoughts, seem to never move faster than when I actually sit down and try to meditate and, as tony would say,
with anything that your undertaking what's the first question you should ask yourself is: what is your outcome? What is what what's your outcome said
really? What's the result that you're after when you sit down
chaired kneel down. However, you do it what it! What do you
can you do like what? Why is the result that you're after when used nanda for premeditation fifteen minutes later? How do you know that you have accomplished you're what you set out to do when you went in there in the first place,
I dont know that is necessarily a result.
Per se, I think there's a lot that's happening in the realm of invisible forces. I mean you had yesterday

I mean another reason to do it, I'm not doing it. Just fine every excuse in its often like hey, I'm not good at this, while a cup

and then had been then comes the self judgment because just feels like these excuses and then it's like, I can't meditate
That's it I'm unlovable, I'm an impostor stupid. I mean it escalates quickly and I suppose, from
what my limited understanding of meditation mindfulness is. Is that's exactly the reason why we meditate in the first place is to become aware
of the craziness of our thoughts. You know
think of for honest, we ve all been there. You know
we ve all heard
at those moments of beating ourselves up or had the
moments of judging ourselves for judging another. I call my judges, you know just go suggests. Nets is constant in hand who narrative
and so you know I I don't know I think
extra layer of you know, continual defence in trying to hold up an identity is so much

I experienced this that, in the other you know, I've gotta,

back to a deeper truth and experience, you know a broader perspective and kinder
reality of life, you you and tony ever friend,
ellen langer and I've heard her she's,
people call her the mother of mindfulness? Yes, she beautiful woman
and she is the first tenured harvard professor in this continent, female harboured per person-
Sir, very bright woman, and
she I've heard her say like
there, but were not really their language. When someone is asked her, what mindfulness is and ice
we know that feeling and that something like my outcome would be. I want that clarity of experience and clarity of mind and presents- and so
well, I dunno. If mindfulness and meditation are kind of all
this I clump them altogether. Guess I don't tell me
well once again, I can only share my experience. Ah, but you
when I started to meditate to actually sit and have meditation and I'll share exactly what I've done you know
the beginning. I would you know I had this
expectation that it needed to be ten minutes or twenty minutes or fifteen minutes and
and I it didn't work for me so on in the very beginning, and so I would just close my eyes and tune in for maybe one minute
united I'd literally think of it is
like my moments of grace cause, it was just like like taking that breath and
and feeling actually what was
on inside and noticing the sensations and just watching, but
in my eyes, are closed off our eyes are closed and we're sitting in meditation and thoughts
arising. Rather then I shouldn't be thinking that. Why am I
thinking that why my thinking
but cleaning my closet or the sandwich. I wanted you to have to do this or I didn't call my mom today. You know
and so, if you know, can just what
that experiences. The thought comes up. You know whatever sandwich I want to eat, or I clean my closet and if
we're not resisting that are making that wrong or demonizing that or labeling ourselves. If not a meditative are thinking. Why can't I do this and I'm a failure, but just
no gosh. I I want to have a grilled cheese, then issues the thought coming up in a ghost and then the net,
Thought comes up and goes only get to watch that experience and it's interesting cause
it's it's really more. Observing them
rather than the resistance in and
damn. You know attaching to an expectation that it needs to look a certain way and once again, I'm only simply sharing my own experience, but when I did that I
no, it's like you can't effort meditation
No, you can't like it's not something to achieve its something to experience
and were all really good at doing I mean you know
we'll sit for human beings. We human beings will sit for thy twenty thirty minutes and scroll through social media.
and be all else in somebody else's business. You know and not think twice about you notice
be random layer aimless these you know looking at something on social media, but two,
actually say: ok, ominous sit, inexperienced actually what's happening.
Inside and connect to the gift of that reality and I say again
because we're alive- I think, that's for myself. That's all

heart is beating that's a gift if we
wake up in the morning. That's a gift in

and then you know getting some distance of the judgments that are coming up in just watching that
that common rise, you know Michael sing
as a very dear friend and shares a beautiful
metaphor of you. No thoughts are like clouds
for outside, and it's a beautiful sunny day and club
come by. We don't judge that there's clouds, just the clouds come by
that doesn't change that its sunny behind the clouds. You know in the clouds
floating by, and I think if we
you know having that metaphor, so help me when I was,
it in meditation because his thoughts, you know
rose or came by. It was just like clouds floating by rather than those clouds
why the clouds there I'm failing as a genome blue sky observer, the clouds shouldn't be there, which would be absurd.
You know we don't judge the experience of nature.
we don't judge. What do you know him
happening vague, whether it's raina. Maybe we do at times, and if we do, we suffer
that does that annex helpful and I think you know the cloud

but I can't I mean, there's hundreds in here- that's just a sampling, but by far that's the most, that's the most common one of just like these thoughts, but they to your point there just like
in the sky are what they are just noticed them network work anytime. I talk to somebody who's really
seasoned in meditation. It's like all you just notice, you just watch you, don't judge them and
it may you make it sound, so easy work has, I think, tat if
sitting here and I close my eyes, I'm hearing
on body being brave thoughts are coming and going. Maybe I'm hearing you know the fan,
in the room. I am fairly, I'm hearing your! U no papers

So, if there's just that little bit of
I guess it's willingness to appreciate or two
just allow and accept what ever is here and tuna,
into in to the sensations on the external costs. Normally there so much happening out here that you know attract,
our attention. I think it's
Beautiful, is an entire universe inside of us
do you know, I mean a whole network of capitularies and veins and our heart pumping in our body breathing, that's on
He'll to me, you know
that's unreal to me and then, when it was just like ok embracing the reality like thoughts, just
then go. I mean, I think, that's where we all neatness human experience we all have.

we all have the reality of a thought and under universal.
I'd say you know, there's a cold

commonality. If you listen to any human being psych random thoughts
you know absurd ones that it's like. While what does this have to do with his experience here now
it's there, and so it is that's you know, and so it is and so
for myself. I started out by doing. Thank you know that
I said one to two minutes and I would do that may be two to three times a day,
sometimes I might go outside and just say, take a breath and close my eyes and she'll

we can miss sir. I can miss them,
actual sensation of or rain

I was watching her and experiencing that I was having you know my own expense.
instant sensation of that and it's like. Ah
We can miss so much and I've missed some
much in my life, and I think the gift, if you,
talk about a result and
I don't know that it's you know, I'm sorry

phrase for mere right experience. For me,

happening here now and then
if I'm in life and I feel
a reactionary somebody says something to me in
feel entangled in a moment, and I think that's where the gift, like
the work of mindfulness. It sank. Ok, let's go!
back to this second here at this moment here in and take a breath and
and tune in and cause otherwise it's just it's one thing it's another and it just like life happening in
like. I said we get so caught up in the business,
and through business, in my own life experience, we miss the nuances commission.
The sweetness and I think, that's you know as
as you know, having a consistent practice in our share here. My experience in this conversation
there's more beauty,
in the most simple things when before
for the simple thing might have happened in I missed. I missed the moment. Ok, I want to zoom out first section because
I want to give our listeners those listening, who might not know you say, drop and see how well as I do, you read me
listening right now and going like she's talking about the raindrops and the nuances of life, and I thought we were talking about meditation which to some people, looks like
sitting on a pillow causing your eyes in a cave or that too,
That is all meditation,
especially in the west, I have to say, has gotten real trendy
and everybody is in there, you know fancy pants in their smoothly in doing there
detention and I don't know
there's a part of me even feel it. As I talk about it. There's a part of me that has like a like or not
sentiment? Maybe it isn't there something I feel something of like is that the authentic experience that everyone is talking about an even as we we want.
And even as we talk about the expectations of meditation like one
expectation is gosh. I wish, like my thoughts, could just calm down a little bill, and,
other is like? I,
I feel one with the universe and the blade of grass
You mean everyone, we know my enemies and friends
and the animals like. I have been expectations, and so I hearing you talk about the miracle of life. Can we talk about
the full moon, meditation, yes, that we did this again,
probably links back to my grand expectations for ten minute meditation. It was.
Moon meditation. It was a full moon, coupled aid.
to go many folks- there was the eclipse and- and it was this powerful energy and many folks do a meditation and again that can be a very trendy thing and what I love about this is myself and billy, and tony and sage sage had brought it up and said: hey, do you guys want to have this meditation, so
We are gradually are little being bags. We went out to the backyard made a list.
well, semicircle circle of friends, and
each had a little prayer book and it was really intentional if there was a lot of joy and yet there is also a reverence for this move.
This is something that shines at the sky could see how people believed that it was. We know godlike like this,
the thing that rises in, especially in its full capacity. It's just its magnificent.
and so in your sage beautifully, you said prayer
and we held hence all of us, and then we, you asked us to close our eyes and we had kind of a silent meditation for maybe what would you say
five ten. You have it. I say ten minutes,
under the moon, and I feel like,
the edinburgh ten minute. I'm not do this by the end of the ten minutes m. Unlike man has it,
in our life sucks that's got out and I found myself like side. I am given to coincide eyes, you wake he's penetrating billy and and
he's like. How would you describe billy he's tony's trainer and he is like this. Mostly beef cake prototype.
My little protein shaken unlike come on. Billy's not meditating, he's not in it, and you close the meditation
and I look over a billy and he opened his eyes and is a hundred percent earnest he's like while, like africa, where we were,
and I had this feeling of lake.
Feeling left out
like he was.
body lists and
I was in my mind. Well billy. I love that man he's one of my dearest.
Ends, and ah you know we
had so many conversations and talked about meditation and how this exact same dialogue of his frustration of like it, I sit and I'm you know my
or just got you mind is going in.
but that night I think you know that's the gift of dislike
Is it's never the same.
The moment we're having right now and say this is whenever will never
experiences exact moment again. So to me, it feels like you have already reap the gifts of meditation and with that comes gratitude and are in wonder for this experience of life, because somehow you ve gotten through at some point you get through
the chatter and through the problems of small mind, and then it's like this. It opens your eyes some and then I think that's
few if someone were to ask me: ok, mary, like what do you want, why we,
review of a sudden started meditating tomorrow? Why would-
and it's like, I want tony- sometimes talks about profound knowledge.
And you know, there's a lot of knowledge,
small knowledge, but there's also these things at her. These insights that forever these breakthroughs
that change forever. The way you of your life- and I

Buried treasure, I believe, exists, and I hear you talk and it's like ok, she's,

I don't know if it's got it because, honestly, I still experience chatter, my mind can still get entangled. I feel frustration. I feel
As you know, I feel all the scope of human emotions, but I think that that's the gift of the practice at stake.
ok we're all in this thing here in this human experience to give to be alive,
and mind chatter. As you say, you know we all like to turn the volume down. Maybe that's no more accurate than through it or you.
I haven't mastered that
and yet in a moment to come back to this moment and to question my thoughts

I'd read, look over it like me,
sentence and her eyes are closed and now I've
to realize like she's, not sleeping she's, not narcolepsy dick, he is meditating and shall I
just be sitting there eyes closed kind of, like you know, warm smile on her face and, unlike she's just
in this moment this. This is what so, what I!
of about that, and what you have taught me already is that you can do this anywhere. Yes, you don't have to be
a tasseled rug. No,
and I'm learning that from you so and people are like this present moment. You could do it right now. What are we doing right now? You could- and I also like how you mentioned before, like.
It's whatever sounds that you hear like sometimes I am neurotic enough
that all here, a sound and and that will open up. That's that's distracted
hanging focus on my breath? If I hear that neighbor's dog barking and it's like okay, just that's what that's what life is giving you right now go with the neighbour
dog barking. Know your dog barked. Whenever it is this, is it go into it and notice where your mind goes see what thoughts come up that incite at bag?
Think theoretically, I'm getting close
sir, to an understanding and then at the same time it's like it like you said: it's not something you do it's not something to achieve. It's not something! You understand. It's like this,
I don't know what is it like? I think it's something that we are in.
taken as a remembrance through this process of life for us all, you know that it was an unloading and
I remember once and if they gave interest earlier,
This may be a few months ago. I heard it
Allow me go off and
Ah, it's like well. That's part of this experience right
You know the smoker
Campbell here it's getting a little wily. That's part of our experts
Hence right now, I'm you know if I think
shouldn't be happening. Then I'm crazy, I'm suffering, you know
I think you know the gift of
meditation the gift of mindfulness. Ah you know I
dont know if it's I think it's coming, except
actually is coming back to more of our nature,
and that's more being this, you know,
and you know, trust
We ve lived an incredibly full life.
has been a lot of doing,
and even have experienced a lot of beautiful things,
this life and yet the states of being
so what I mean by that is it's not like one redoing, something it's just gis.
being here now, Anne and noticing and appreciating or just expire
and what this moment offers. I think
rather than this moment should look different than what it is that when we missed the moment- and I think that that's part, a lot of you know them,
Chatter was experiencing just it's like if you close your eyes and you're willing to just you know for two minutes for three minutes
experience. What you experience in awe not have an expectation, then its, then, what
ever since whenever you here, whatever whoever knock on the door
no one, whatever thought arises and falls. It's just part of this work
strata of life that's happening, part of like the cloud
it's coming the sun going behind the clouds. It's like it's perfect. It's just this harm
nea. He experience. But it's not.
harmony harmonious when you know we believe the thought that it should look different than what is here now that
I mean I that is probably the most accurate
way that I can describe meditation
of its allowing it's just a
in accepting you can put any word of those or just simply pay
the even more accurately just watching her observing. You know what is
Here in this moment you sit there
and you close your eyes and you stay focused and you fall asleep. Well
You know you focus seems once again so like like too
focus of eta and maybe I'm projecting right now, but I feel like there's effort and that I think you know
Watching feels more sincere because, as you watch, you watch whatever comes designing
hence noticing serving witness consciousness. That's that of accurate, and I think that you know a lot of time.
Here take one other thing, but that it was amiss for me when I first started
station. I had this
Expectations are laundered psyche, no gosh. Like you don't mind,
in my mind, is going to stop or there's like this awakening in or you hear about people having awakening experience, an enlightenment experience and everything was like out here, you know what that felt like
this result her this chair,
such this chase of this something that was here
But, as I was wanting this thing out here, I was missing what was happening here and that's the that's the seduction
that may be a bit of the illusion. Has its banks
during that we wake up here now
this moment. You know, and I think this
so many practices like there's some people from different that unit listening right now, that of from different cultures are different pass of life.
and different experiences and that's the beautiful
gift. This human experiences there, so many choices and pass home
within sight of ourselves, and you know as we walk this,
I think we recognise that you know we ve now
really left home.
Just a realisation that you know this is the awakening. This is the gift
is meditation may be right here right now. This is us
living our lives
and appreciating and being present to this moment, doesn't get more beautiful than that until the next moment.
I want to mention one more thing: if you're agnostic, if your atheist, if you're believer
what's so incredible about this, is it's really irrelevant? You can still have a practice of meditation,
what religion. I'm glad you no matter. How can we imagine that was another question that came in and social media too, and I don't want to miss it.
Someone wrote, isn't meditation hindu, intrinsic transcendental meditate
auntie em your given a hindu wholly word. I feel it goes against my christianity. Can you speak to that?
I want. I want you to answer that as someone who grew in a half grew up in a house where my parents first question was often set against the
church I can relate and I dont believe it is. But
I would love to know how cloud address that
once again, I think if meditation is about coming back to this moment. Ah, if it's about do you know,
experiencing. What's inside of you what's inside of us, is you know it's a miracle affair? I believe it
you believe that a creator created us so
it's tuning into that miracle and gosh. I I think that's complementary in. I almost look at like if you're prayer, it's like a filling up and meditation
be considered as an empting out, that's overly
Plastic and that's not, you know completely accurate, but
you know it's something that I have related to.
and so I feel like the two go hand in hand,
in such a beautiful, meaningful way. I do. I,
when I was in college, I went to a real thomas merton face yes, thomas
in the twentieth century: trappist monk, christian monk, theologian, mystic author. I pull the quote from him because I just think it so beautiful and also uses the word contemplation christianity. You might hear it be cop and you may hear it described as contempt,
if prayer so contemplation, meditation rare any of those words, I think whenever you're comfortable with you can put to it, but I thomas Martin, in from new seeds of contemplation rights, contemplation, is the highest expression of man's intellectual and spiritual life. It is the spiritual wonder it is spontaneous. Ah the sea,
crudeness of life, I get emotional readings of being. It is a vivid realization of the fact that life and being in us proceed from an invisible, transcendent and infinitely abundant source, and then contemplation is above all awareness of the reality of that source. Who, I think that's just, I think that's it. I don't want to put words to it that no delay well, that was beautifully said and expressed, and once again I think they all you know. Life is so beautifully vast. It isn't this or that if I pray I can't meditate,
I meditated camp, pray. What's contemplation, you know it all you, nuts, all this puzzle, peace that comes together to make the greater whole and you know for myself
before. I start
meditation. I wish to say thank you. You know,
and tat, no matter, you know whatever
your religion or non religion wherever you come from your back on your culture
honouring that and praying away. That's true for you or you can prayed,
the source that beach, your heart, you can beloved
divine source, sir beloved creator. Thank you for this moment. Thanks.
for this life, thank you.
Firm surrounding me, think
for renewing me. Thank you for
storing me, thank you for filling
me here now a man doesn't have
could be, or it could just be. Thank you. You know
but for myself I always start from that place
That's just sincere for me. Let me talk to you about my expectations
I'd love to you, knowing that we were coming into this conversation today, I pick the book off Michel by your friend and tony spoon.
Doktor. Andy Newberg spoke it somewhere, conferences, Blamore. I open up his little book,
called how enlightenment changes your brain and unlike nuns, but I want to make me meditate. He writes knowledge, wisdom sighing
reason: oneness unity, ecstasy, awakening blue,
this liberation insight,
transcendence transformation, self realisation, illumination clarity, inner peace, holiness, revelation
god, emptiness selflessness,
giving some out pure consciousness.
he says throughout history. Different scholars. Have you
every one of these terms to define and capture the essence of enlightenment and then by proxy.
See meditation some have said is
way to enlighten meant to this awakening.
sit on my little. I sit crisscross alsace and, unlike our let's go, some realized
And I see you.
How I'm going
I was wrong and I also
continue to learn from you, and I hope that I hope that someone else
there's smiling tony in fact told
set our last episode. He thought
listen to any cried his eyes out as tony robbins
You know him he's such a site.
after he's, such a softy he's, usually the first one in tears. Any said you guys are funny, but you are a little serious and last one he wanted to laugh. So in an effort to to talk to,
hopefully not take ourselves to seriously. I will also say that I will come to you and say like sage on fuel
and crazy, cakes, my mind and to me that means like whether it's I am feeling anxious or scared or angry or frustrated, and so I know I'm hooked in my mind and we've done like you mentioned, Michael singer, we were lucky enough to go to his and
temple of the universe here in florida,
and he talks about like theirs.
Struggle world, and then there's thought or
and then there's your emotional body. So there's really these three things. So if you're sitting their eyes closed, your attention might go to something in the external world.
A knock at the door, you phone goin off, and it might go to a thought that you have like that. I locked the door where my keys and thirsty you, I thought, or a feeling, like, ah still so mad at this thing happened, you mean
if those are the only three things when you when he chunks him, like that, it's like, okay, I have these three things to contend with. I should just be able to sit here, focus on my breath,
and be aware of the miracle of life. It's would you
boil it down. It's like wow. This seems pretty. This is pretty basic
and there is little dictator site.
A tyrant that is like did you do this? You should do that. You should know about just, and I hear
and when I listen to the net
later, that we all have it's like.
Who is running the show? What is a little voice? What do you make of that little voice? Do you have that little
Of course, I do everybody has a little punk errors. We, I think, once again, that's where we all meat- and I think that's
the real oneness of this human experiences that we all have that voice
it's only a dictator if you listen to it ass right, you know, and so you know whether it's you know opened the door do this or do that you know if you're listening
to it and believing the thought I think you'd I am speaking,
this I just have to share. I know have mentioned it her name in the last podcast five katy
She has a process called the work and the four questions,
and was not come, the work out come and
this is another active form
meditation is theirs for
questions and to turn around- and you know you do the process of actually writing it down its college. A neighbor were cheap and you meditate
into it, and the gift of this is you know: mine can work so quickly and and and
and the narrative can happen so quickly that to slow mine down and to actually write it down. It's amazing because of it's your own consciousness, guiding you through this process in, but so unreal at the end of this process. If you stay with, it
It always is so remarkable to me what I've missed, and I think that that's the gift.
Meditation. It's like you know you,
about noticing you we speak about watching it,
What are we noticing sake? What we ve missed
you know what we ve missed in what so amazing about that about
you know I've I've, gush, I've known katy. She said
dear friend, by the wages down a beautiful sister on the path
I started doing the work really seriously. I'd read her books, but I actually wasn't sitting in doing the work myself and I probably
started doing that maybe about five years ago, but you know I'm, I meditated
notice, I was willing to notice. I had a desire to notice what maybe I'd missed,
and just to see is it true.
You know I that day I chose a different path and
Yes, inquiry really has been a
credible tool. I
its marvin and one saint active format.
Patient, but there is a process of answering
questions and meditating in
who is sitting with that noticing what
being shown. What you ve, missed, you're, so vast in what meditation is, is what it could possibly look like, which I love
You with all the you know you and tony, have given seminars in service all over this globe. You have
traveled to india and china malaysian know in these poor
so maybe that we think of like where meditation is born in it
done this way and you
and even we have we have done our share of, like you know, alpha brainwave,
meditation or korea the nose
national isolation, nostril meditation that
Sometimes words get put to ever. A parson are things that are almost our intimidating, like tony's as like in
industries. When there is this language and then you kind of get psyched out cause you're like I dunno what that means, whether it's medical field or the financial field, or if it's the same thing there's I feel the
even in it when I step into this realm,
and you have this ability like a lot of folks of
wrote in and said. How do you know you're doing it right or what's the way do do this kind of meditation do this kind of meditation and you're kind of like I had this conversation with my sister and I questioned this thought and of course this is about meditation, but I want people to see like you often use the word in
worry. You talked about byron, Katie's, the work when just these four questions so that where the inquiry comes in and many folks who teach meditation
you will say you sit with your thoughts. You notice that
What's that come up and you question their validity question the truth of this or at the very least you look at that thought, and you don't judge it, you don't try to should or shouldn't it. You just accept that thought is coming in like a cloud through the sky, one of my outcomes of meditation would be, and people often promise this self realize.
station or or seeing seeing of oneself, know thyself. Socrates are all in this house, so crates yeah, no two thousand over two thousand years ago- and you know, says this
know thyself, and does that mean and everyone else like can see us? Why can't we see ourselves? Yes, and then there are the last to know, and so there is that that curiosity and minutes, I really want to know what objectively, what is out the outside experience of what I'm like that. I know I'm not seeing because we're too in our own stuff or too busy defending is, as you know, the human nature would often do
We justify we all speak for myself when I sit there oftentimes when I notice what my mind is doing in meditation. It will be built
some defence or making some case for myself for justifying something I wish I hadn't donner wish I had done. I guess she caught continent
in meditation they can be interchangeable.
Then, of course, yes, you know, I mean
beyond sitting. You keep mentioning a sitting meditation, but there can be a walking meditation. You know
going on a walk and cheese
noticing the beauty, the birds chirping, are. You know,
The due on the grass sore
You know the ants in front of your: are we we've got this little geckos? You know runnin around town here, and you see this
nobody's and say: hey you other that all
next flap out like there's so much in homes on moving quickly. I miss, and sometimes, if I'm walking
from here down the hill
slow down in an notice all these gifts that are right in front of me that sometimes, when I'm moving quickly, I walk right by inside.
Look at. That is a walking meditation and by the way I do sit
you do a ten minute meditation in the morning and I close my evening the same way I do
have the practice of that, but the practice us,
I think the gift of it of integrating whether its mindfulness as you call it, what you know, Ellen's body of work and live in katie's. You know that,
questions is this can be something that's you know, takes flight and makes the inner experience are
I may I'll speak for myself, my inner experience more kind when that coherence starts to happen
greater level of harmony. All of us.
Sudden, mind or consciousness starts to notice something different
I've noticed star
to translate and every day no waking exe
variance or or life just data day. Is that, as a circumstance comes up, and maybe I feel hooked or I feel frustrated by a moment, it's like ok, this is just a thought.
The thought or whatever judgment it is in his. I identify with that thought. I suffer. You know.
as I get a little distance in
Oh, is this true or take a breath and psycho my gosh? You know maybe just notice in a moment before, possibly what I missed. I think that's a that's the gift in the blessed
Think of awareness of alertness of coming back to this moment of bees,
here now, because it
so easy in a world of social media in a world of with new.
Who's in her. So much bombarding us with you known to some
watch bombarding us when's the last time you know, listen to a podcast or read a book or ate a meal without checking your texts or looking in an alert or something it's we are so bombarded so to have attention again. I think that's another thing, that's on my target when I talk about outcomes or results that I'm after and meditation, and it's that ability to just be where I am and where I put place my attention and not have something else dictate to me where to put it
and you know I'm glad you brought up michael singer before it, so I grabbed two books last night, when I knew we were going to sit down and have this conversation today. The other one is our friend Michael singer's book, and I can tell because
scribbled in here that I read it in twenty fifteen and I am it's always great to go back and look at the notes you scribbled in here, but
one of the things I had written on the inside cover
clearly was something that I had gleaned from reading Michael singers book which to me, and I've heard a lot of people say this reading this little tiny book was the first thing that open up this understanding, in my mind, of like wow,
that little voice in their widen. Why haven't I thought about this? Why am I thought about her before and so it this book pointed
That's me and I had written in the inside cover.
Now, when I used to hope now, what used to hold me down becomes what makes me up now, what used to hold me down become law? Wake me up. So where there is a belief I had about myself-
let's church, that isn't cycling in my mind for hundredth time or a belief that
I've heard someone has about me or that I've made up that someone has about me that cycling my mind for the thousand time.
Now I'm able to catch that, and that makes me out till I k that little punk and your mind. It's doing that thing again and you are taking orders from it like you're the boss. I really like what you said there. It you're it's only a dictator if you listen to it rather than just like these thoughts are coming up. Let him be
let him pass through. Do you have meditations where you're, like oh mind, was chatting away today or are you like? Do you still have those days where you're, like hmm a little weak?
well today, why don't affected?
but I have the moment: swear mine
rifts, and I call on you know that my
tension back to this moment here, papa
yeah. I just you know. I follow my breath
You know you just it's just it's no big deal, you know come back here. You know
It took the kindness if you know, if you have
a child, and you know they're up to something or you know, wandering off at six sweetheart. You know: hey, that's, that's! It's come back this weighty or die. It's it's ass. You know little rascal, it's like how beautiful to extend and offer that graciousness to oneself to myself
just you know it's like no big deal. You know
we have noticed the gift of being in
forties is that life. You know, sir,
to have a different level of inward flow
He does simple things. This wasn't like something like you know, a big thing I I was like gosh. I have to do this or I can never do this. It was just a
happening, you know if I went on a plane before
we'd go and if we at the airport and you stop it,
stop at a magazine store- and I do not by a bunch of-
the and be slipping through
and seeing you know, who's doing wider, whose wearing wider buying wider. What the heck there or dino things about their relationship, individuals, juicing
It was until it's not
You know it really was and then all of a sudden life became more interesting.
Here now, rather than what was more interesting over there
That was something I consciously thought, but I was reflecting last night and I was like caution.
No, when that happened, or why that happen, but
it's a result it was raised.
I guess that. As a result, you known, though, having that extend to you
different level of mindfulness throughout my life,
just noticed myself, making different decisions you know took.
Every morning. I wake up, and I check my phone
the news alerts when I was I you know, and it's a feeling all these things is I'm reading it and
spirits that mad, and so I took that off my phone. I turned the
what if it collating alerts up my phone, I'm not on any social media whatsoever. Personally,
and so it's you know it's given me the beautiful gift to have
more time and space for myself, and I think, like that's the most you know is that the self love, I think, that's a part of it. What do you think it's a result of your practice of meditation? I feel
myself, this gift that we have as human beings. They were able to know that were thinking and then to them
realize like while and then all these distractions-
also coming in. How could I ever have room for the creativity that I want the you know
whatever it is it you want to do with your life. If it's just this decision
action from one distraction to the next internally and externally. I know enough to know that's not home than an go. Do great things
You know, and so pairing down the external distractions and then paring down the internal distractions nets. You know what I made the same mistake
it's not pairing. Now, yes, that's beautiful, wanna, see just cut yourself, it's noticing yeah, then I think it pair it
but you just by noticing it almost pairs down. Well
You just did is exactly my opinion. My experience of mine,
less this meditation. I just got yourself that's what this beautiful life's about. You know
its catching. You suffer mary, I'm not the most
a human being on the world,
and you are- and so you know, used play soccer and, if you're, to kick you're at the ball into the gulf
what kind of ball. If you were to kick it into the goal- and you know I'm sure he did do that every time and if you're at practice, he didn't do it every time. But then there's
the times where you did most times
we ve learned with practice- and I think, like you, know, cash
We have such a huge exe,
take our mouth who, whom I say we have such a huge I've, had such a huge expectations
And you know I drop that and I dropped the notion of enlightenment.
Have awakening cause. What life showed me was gushed. That's in this moment that
only time that we could wake up is here now you just did it
you know I'm just looking at you were here. This is this: is this
beautiful life and for the
was a view that are listening right now. You know just take a look around
take a look at your surroundings. You known to us,
see and what you ve noticed? Maybe just a moment before
your breath you now it's it's beautiful to be here now, and I think that that is the greatest most powerful
One of the most powerful profound gifts of meditation is coming.
in coming to the moment, has railways in the moment it's noticing it. I felt that even in just that moment, it's like it can happen in the enhanced
Kids. Why did you feel you satellites? I can explain it
If I'm really, like you said, focusing Adam
to hold on to do to do you know just
like. What's gonna come next its control, its certainty, unrealized, that's what tony would say it is you're driving need for
certainty. I know, which I know is just a nice way to say your
for control, your illusion of control, some
semblance of control is life that I have none of yes and then to just get quiet. I feel my heart like take a breath in that and also there's this uncertainty of what the next sound we might hear could be or the emptiness of that, and that helps me to say. While I have no idea what a minute here next or what I might notice next with my eyes or that I feel like oh how? How cool is that and I feel the need for certainty, relax and I feel myself settle into while there's so much I'm not in control of, and I can be okay with Adam and I can enjoy it, not just be okay with it. I can actually really enjoy it and to me that it's like we're sitting we're just sitting here
and I have to manage my mind of like don't ask stupid question. Add value, make sure that this is entertaining or that folks are getting things from this and then in a moment it's like you know it. Let's just have a conversation should be real. We're just sit near people want authenticity, take a breath. Yes, we just
feel like this little anchor. To this moment. That's beautiful, I say I meditated. That's a beautiful thing, your vote
bill it in your honesty and sincerity. I think it's really beautiful thing
human beings, you know, as we drop. Ah defence. You know life is kinder, that next breath
and tat. You know we don't need to be a certain way. I think that's the gift of this human experience we get to be
I'm uniquely me, your uniquely you matt, I
your beard. I you are how you express yourself, we all anna maids and express life uniquely, I think, that's just so
beautiful and fricking phenomenal. Does that
line meant of where we all meat of this human experience and then just that you know,
beauty of how we all express that's cool, it's cool, even just like a ten second moment, you can tundra view can touch upon it.
That any meditation you're making this really easy, and thank you now. That's the intent, I think
No for those views reading your questions in the can
so hard on ourselves and I've been that human being so
No, the intend here wishes to simply share the experience and share many pass.
Do you know really all beautifully and us up in the same place and
I don't have it's meditation
I don't have it stage of life, but there's no other place.
rather be than here now.
Tat is a freedom in that and
as I go forward when I catch myself, if I'm future paste,
you know bringing
my attention. My awareness, my back to this moment just the matter what's up,
in the external world. It's ok.
I'm alive when it, you know looking at making Vicki singers book here, one of the beautiful gifts of that book was chapter. Seventeen the another.
He had the antennas, gender, seventeen and
Do you know he talks about? You know how death is such an amazing teacher,
and die you talk about. You know we have no control, we don't know what the next sound is gonna, be we don't even know
four we're be here to morrow, then us none of us.
An hour from now, and so you know
we are here in life, is a miracle and it's a gift to be alive
no matter what is happening. It's a gift to have this experience to feel they, since
agents to see
what you're saying to you know all that
these beautiful miracles, that item
Of just life happening through us as us uniting that's the gift of that
and a reminder of the preciousness
and meditation has brought that more to life. For me and when I forget you know that's
gifted this life. Waking up is in this moment. You know that's the gift of
king that were in,
we're already home. It's true we're already home here we are. I think that's the gift of the other side of a meditation is the feeling that you are able to experience that in your waking out out of meditation, you awake the waking moments, it's there with you,
but I can feel it. Your meditated urge is every listening,
I don t there ain't. You think, that's just that's beautiful statement and that's a beautiful reality.
Because we all our its own nature, its air, we are meditate tone- would say some people say I'm not getting results. Antonio
say, you're always getting results. They just might be the results that you want in that same way.
Were always meditating. If you stop
watch your mind is always meditating on something it might just be the circus and not the miracle.
I get it, I think I get it well that you have a bit of a gang one thing I feel, like I'm learning in real time from this conversation with you is what I want for meditation in what I'm trying to get away from, and so at at our seminars, Tony teaches about towards values, moving towards values and moving away from value
and there too, very powerful things and, and also people are motivated, stronger, some some by what they want some by what they don't want. You brother,
ass? By listening to this? What motivates me more so
What surprise you and I say that I think I was approaching meditation
by aiming at avoiding this like restlessness of mind and body, rather than moving towards these enormous profound insights into life on this spinning planet and the nature of what it is to be a human being with a heart beating in the
chest I want more of that. I want to move towards me to every day only every day, every day and laughing are you laughing
This is us simplistic, I'm laughing, because its
pitiful when we recognize yes, the simplicity and and the beautiful opportunity that life allows us our life gifts us and to notice and the preciousness to mote notice, the gift and to notice. What's here now. Ah, I think there's nothing more gorgeous
in the human experience than this moment and die. You know we ve mention many different. Ah fire you know
And katy and Michael singer, I also
to mention that tone. It is a beautiful priming, expiring.
and monitor gratitude meditation, and
In the beginning, it's it's a guided meditation that you go through and you know I think of you know what you're grateful for and it's it's it's a really beautiful process cause it's
I you know once again: it's just guiding the attention ah
