Commitment is Very Important in Life

Here are more words of wisdom from Swami Satchidananda from The Golden Present. In today’s lesson, we learn that commitment is very important in life.

Swami Satchidananda“Commitment is very important in life. Those who want to lead a spiritual life are here to change all these things and to rebuild a better world. Remember that. You have a great task, and it’s not impossible. If you really put your heart and soul into that, you can do it. Begin with your own life. Let nothing shake you. You have to be really bold and strong to achieve anything in life. Be that bold. When you know that something is right, don’t hesitate to follow it. Certainly there may be obstacles, tests; but don’t give up. Even if you should fall down or make a mistake, get up and say, “No! The next time I’ll be strong.” Keep on going, like great mountain climbers, until you reach the top. If you really want to do it, you will be given the needed strength. You will have all the support. If you want it, you’ve got it; but your want has to be that strong.” 
~ Sri Swami Satchidananda from The Golden Present: Daily Inspirational Readings

To take on a daily meditation practice requires a certain level of commitment. If you begin a daily meditation practice and then let it fall by the wayside, it is like beginning a physical exercise program and dropping it when it gets too difficult. It’s like beginning a weight loss program and finding that you don’t like it, so you just let the pounds and kilograms accumulate.

Are you willing to make a commitment to your practice of meditation? If not, what would it take to make it so? Did you know that you can begin with just 9 minutes a day? See 9 Minute Meditation and commit to practice.
