Daily Dose for the Soul

Step 9: Practice being in silence and meditation. Nothing relieves stress, depression, anxiety, and all forms of low-energy emotions like silence and meditation. Here, you make conscious contact with your Source and cleanse your connecting link to intention. Take time every day for moments of quiet contemplation, and make meditation a part of your stress-reducing ritual.

Step 10: Stay in a state of gratitude and awe. Go on a rampage of appreciation for all that you have, all that you are, and all that you observe. Gratitude is the tenth step in every ten-step program for manifesting your intentions, because it’s the surest way to stop the incessant inner dialogue that leads you away from the joy and perfection of the Source. You can’t feel stressed and appreciative at the same time.

Here’s a poem by the famous Bengali poet of Calcutta, Rabindranath Tagore, one of well known spiritual teachers:

I slept and dreamt that life was joy

I awoke and saw that life was service

I acted and behold service was joy

It can all be joy in your inner world. Sleep and dream of joy, and remember above all else: You feel good not because the world is right, but your world is right because you feel good.

Excerpt From: Wayne W. Dyer. “The Power of Intention: Learning to Co-create Your World Your Way”. Apple Books.

  2. Very much agree about the helpfulness of quiet moments. I can feel tugged in different directions, and those moments help to center me.
