Today, I want to share both a resource (meditation) and a post from my mentor/teacher/trainer, Dawson Church, Ph.D., He's the author of multiple books, including "Mind to Matter" that I am reading.
It is written that the experience and belief of oneness are one of the cornerstones of the elevated emotional states produced by EcoMeditation, a meditation that Dr. Church created.
"A study published by the American Psychological Association's journal Psychology of Religion and Spirituality shows that people with a higher degree of oneness have greater life satisfaction.
That's independent of religion. Study participants came from different religious backgrounds, including Catholics, Jews, Hindus, Muslims and Buddhists. The association between oneness and life satisfaction held true even for atheists.
Meditation, sports, and yoga can all produce the flow states characteristic of oneness. Many more people are now doing these regularly. This represents a proactive way of generating well-being, instead of believing it will "just happen."
As I emphasize in Mind to Matter, the mystical experience transcends religion. The association between oneness and life satisfaction held true even for atheists.
The bottom line is that your life can improve in all dimensions when you cultivate the flow states experienced with EcoMeditation. If you aren't yet meditating every day, consider making this commitment. Use my 7 free meditations on the Insight Timer app. Just search for "Dawson" and you'll find them. To oneness!"
