Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
We all aspire to live a purposeful and meaningful life. Gach tells us that daily meditation and setting our intentions will point us in the right direction for living mindfully. Mindfulness doesn't need to be an intermittent part of our life, like a faucet that turns off and on; it can be present in every moment. Neuroscientists find that setting our intention in the morning helps our mind and body establish a baseline for our experience for the rest of the day. It is like setting a thermostat in your home. He advocates meditation and says, “Formal meditation is a well we can draw from throughout the day. If I’m conscious that I’m breathing while I’m going from the car to the door, going to the bathroom, chopping vegetables, the phone rings, whatever it is, if I’m not only showing up but I’m present when I show up, then I have touched the possibility that I can keep my appointment with life at all times. My appointment with life is being present.” Gach helps us to know that engaged spirituality makes us genuinely intimate and connected with life; it is mindfulness in action.
