Zen Notes: Superior Will and Synchronous Experiences




Zen Notes: Superior Will and Synchronous Experiences




I was thinking about this old couple in their 80s who were involved in a fiery car crash on the I-5 near Oceanside.

They were coming home late from a Christmas Party in Glendale, when they hit another car that was stalled on the freeway.

How very unfortunate and makes one think about trying hard to stay healthy versus just letting ourselves go since we might be super healthy but we might die in a fiery car accident.

You see, this couple were Seventh Day Adventist, and they typically are very healthy eaters, being either vegetarian or vegan. And the photo on the television had shown that for their age, they looked super lean and healthy, but fate succumbed and it was a fiery car crash that did them in.

Very sad and tragic, and my heart goes out to the families and friends who lost these loved ones. They looked like good people.

I was thinking also about have a strong, superior will… to live and to survive.

In the end, we are ALL just trying to survive, day by day.

A superior will to live and survive is essential in this day and age.

I’ve always been thinking about synchronicity, and my experience with repeating numbers which I see everyday in clocks, iPhones and even while watching NFL football games!

I’m hoping that the repeating numbers are all good signs, that my guardian angels are watching over me.

But, it all makes me acutely aware of my surroundings, when crossing the street, while driving, wherever I may be.

Our superior will to live and survive becomes quite important in the long run.

And that’s why I firmly believe in meditation, yoga and especially pranayama exercises, because as simple and seemingly trivial as breathing exercises might seem, our bodies constantly need fresh air and oxygen in order to have a clear mind, a calm rational mind.

So, something seemingly trivial actually becomes essential as a survival skill.

Anyway, these are my thoughts for today.

No one knows when they’re going to pass on into the great beyond, but while we are here, it’s vital to have a focused mind filled with clarity, and do whatever it takes to live with a superior will and a strong set of survival skills.

Yoga, meditation and pranayama, along with all the other limbs of Yoga, can be more essential than we know.
