The goal of the meditational practice at the stages is to calm the mind and bring less attachment to the outside comings and goings of life, so that we can make contact with our child within.

Living with a sense of detachment is KEY to living a meditational life.

This doesn't mean we don't care, or we are apathetic. It means that we know that life and crazy stuff happens, but it doesn't define us. It means that no matter what happens "out there" we are not affected "in here with our child within".

Our meditational practice can be a simple 5, 10 or 20-minute morning and/or evening meditation. Or we could chant a mantra or even go for a walk. The idea is to have a practice that calms the mind and brings more awareness to the breath and to the close contact with the intuitive voice in our life. When we have less attachment to the outside world and the circumstances thereof, we are more powerful creators and co-creators of our own life.

We are no longer defined on an experiential level by our circumstances, so we can begin to mold our outer world to match our inner world, instead of the other way around.

Without a meditational practice every day we can become lost and so attached to what happens that we get lost in the world.

The great spiritual teacher Jiddu Krishnamurti was once asked the key to his happiness, to which he said, "I don't mind how it goes."

This is a POWERFUL statement. This is the essence of RECOVERY. Our definition of RECOVERY here at THE STAGES is "unconditional acceptance of what is". Note, I did NOT say unconditional TOLERATION of what is. There's a difference. We do not and should not tolerate hateful behavior. But we are powerless to change anything without first accepting it.

So, with our meditational practice we can accept what happens in the outside world without it needing to define who we are.

And in doing so, we start to cultivate a POWERFUL perspective that will allow us to transcend our circumstances and truly give our gifts to the world.

The Ten Stages is a studied recovery course. It is a source of reconnection a method of unlearning and a reintroduction to our child within which leads us back to our one true intuitive voice.We start to learn and come out of our protective dysfunctional shell and reclaim our lives. #childwithin#10stages
