Hi there, Thomas here. First of all, thank you for watching this piece. This was quite of a different style of video and personal story, but after having told stories about seeking discomfort 6 years and not addressed the importance of meditation as a part of that journey, I felt compelled to finally share this with you all. I truly do believe in the power of meditation. I hope that all of you watching it will slowly make it a part of your mental diet and to bit by bit, make progress towards a more peaceful you ❤️ Thank you to Headspace for supporting this video, normally, Headspace free trials are 7-14 days, so this is really special.

    Hi all, Thomas here. This is a bit of a different video I’ve been wanting to make for a very long time. It doesn’t fit the typical Yes Theory adventure format and I wasn’t sure if people would care so for a long time I decided against it. I wrote this story 5 different ways and eventually decided that sharing my journey with mental health and how meditation has served me as an amazing companion through this, could help many that struggled the same way I have. This year in particular has been filled with unexpected challenges but we are feeling more and more like ourselves again. We are growing, learning and finding a new flow within our process that you will see the results of very soon. Excited to share and excited for more stories 💫 cheers to you all fellow Peace of Mind Seekers ✌️

    @CaliMade you can't microdose a years worth of meditation in 10 days because you can't BS God. You need to make a real connection with Source/God or you are just fooling yourself. I know I taught the best meditation in histryy for 9 years for FREE and saw many results of many kinds. It was so fabulous that I received many miracles of many kinds from it.

    I very much appreciate that you with so many subscribers share and inspire all with such experience. Meditation - getting to know thyself is actually the answer to everything. For the last decade I've combined many different points of view on reality. I've studied neurobiology and quantum physics from eg. Dr. Joe Dispenza, Dr. Bruce Lipton and few others to better understand everything from the scientific point of view. I've listened hundreds of hours to Abraham Hicks, Seth speaks, Neville Goddard and few more to better understand everything from the mystical/natural point of view. I've traveled to Amazon forest and learned from native people to experience by myself traveling through quantum field - vast worlds, universes, dimensions another lives and times as pure consciousness being in no time and no space being able to do be or have anything. All of this helped me to remember and realize that we all can remember this because we are all ONE. And we just play this game of being individualities to not be bored by being all knowing omnipresent being. As strange as it can sound it's no fun to be everywhere and everything at once knowing everything about anything because you just can't experience any expansion or evolution so you make yourself forget and play this game of life. But when you remember, the game just becomes so much more fun by feeling this infinite power behind your back everywhere at all times. It helps you to cope with everything in such challenging times as these. That's the true faith we forgot. Keep up the good work :) PS: I'm sharing my experiences on my YT channel too.

    I love you guys so much. This video made me realize that I was trying to meditate completely wrong. I was always waiting for that “perfect moment” to meditate, like for example I don’t meditate when it rains because I prefer meditating in sunlight… But there you were, meditating in a corner in the room or on a pillar and even in ice! This was really a profound learning experience for me, and you might not have even intended to do that! Lastly, I have ADHD which comes with it’s own challenges… I have that wild stallion in my head too and sometimes I really get so overwhelmed because it’s not just dealing with the mind that won’t keep quiet, it’s also the self-defeatist content of the mind, like the voices that say “you’re just not good enough,” and actually that’s one of the nicer thoughts I can have on some days. Just… thank you, sincerely.

    Hey Thomas, Good for you starting to meditate. The Dalai Lama said if we could get 8 year olds to meditate all over the world, we would be through with war in just one generation. Also, in your busy schedule, squeeze in a few minutes to read, or to listen, to anything Buddhist nun Pema Chödrön writes or says in her talks. My discovery of her and her teachings changed my life for the better.

    Wonderful video - thanks for sharing your heart with us. I meditate and you are so right. When I describe it to others I say that, before meditating, I didn't know I could get THERE from HERE! It is somewhat miraculous that sitting quietly can take you into the center of the Universe where you can actually experience the Unified Field - that unbelievable soup of undifferentiated energy that is limitless and timeless and is inside us all, just waiting for us to create whatever we believe we can just using our thoughts and words and actions. I used to get so frustrated with all the thoughts that I would find distracting me from my mantra until I read that what was happening was that the thoughts were just stress releasing from my central nervous system - at first from the day, the week, and - as I continue to meditate - the years that they piled up. Now when I observe myself thinking, I remember the term "effortless effort" and gently redirect myself to begin saying the mantra again. Regarding feelings of anxiety and sadness, I recommend the works of David R. Hawkins. He helped me realize that all feelings are just energy and allowing myself to feel them allows them to dissipate. Also Dr. Bach's Rescue Remedy has been a lifesaver. Finally, Ayurvedic medicine, and especially the herbs ashwagandha and triphala, have helped enormously. This system of medicine is the oldest and most complete system of medicine in the world and puts knowledge and power in the hands of the individual. Interestingly, transcendental meditation is the core practice in Ayurveda for health, due to the tremendous release of stress from the system. Thanks again. Wishing you and all the very best. Namaste.

    Thank you Thomas for sharing your experience you articulated yourself so clearly. I have been practicing a form of meditation called Contemplative prayer. I start with scripture then sit with a word or intention and much like mindfulness I bring back my thoughts to this word usually something that centers on the character or attribute of G-D. Silence, stillness and solitude are all practices that if practiced like Jesus would radically transform us from the inside out. All the love to you guys at Yes Theory.

    Meditation will get you nowhere. You want a peaceful mind by meditation? No, how can you be better by sitting there and doing nothing, it’s so obvious. Yeah, meditation might bring you to some mental states like alpha or deeper state… whatever you called it. And it might help you to calm down temporary. And it can be extended further so that you can keep that calmness to longer by more practicing. But guess what… the live will knock you out when ‘bad things’ happen, you are back to live again, meanwhile down to your mind, you know it and can’t be denied… anxiety, angry, etc… isn’t that would be “more true”, to be honesty? Can meditation can transform your mind, probably, kinds of. I am not 100% sure, can you? Can meditation help you to deal with the struggles in your live? I would say maybe, but YOU KNOW that the problem is still there, so as your anxiety. Can meditation bring you the awakening, enlightening? Obviously not. Since NO ONE can be awakened and NO ONE can be enlightened. And it would be ridiculous to achieve THAT by meditation. The key of freeing yourself is to see through all the bs in your live, but I suggest don’t do that because eventually you will be losing all. But that is the only way. That way you might find yourself is doing 24/7 meditation and at the end, you will be sunk to the void. Peace of your mind is just a half way toward it.

    I used to do yoga in past and later decided to try meditation. Yoga is used as religious practise to communicate with spirits. Believe me, it's not for your own good, it's not sport, it's purpose is different. I didn't know that before. I will never forget that horrendous experience, when practising yoga and meditation. At first you feel uplifted, your body becomes stronger, but later everything disappears and even gets worse. Lots of Catholic priests recommend not to do these practises as it's real purpose is to connect with evil spirits, it's another religious practise.

    Hi there Thomas, I have seen a few of the "Yes Theory" videos as they pop up and today, this one did. First, thank you for sharing. Meditation not only helps with the emotional and mental but also the physical too. I had a severe head injury in 2012 that left me with chronic pain which will be with me for life. Unfortunately, modern medicine as we know it, could do nothing. With my career, which involves a lot of legislation, policies and so forth, meditation was the last thing from my mind as a way to manage my chronic pain. When the head injury clinic proposed it, I was baffled at first and literally did not know what I would be facing, but with chronic pain, one's mind is open to try anything. Like you, I practice "Mindfulness" as well and also like you, it took some time to get used to doing it. However, as I enter year eight of doing it, not only does it actually help manage my chronic pain, but allowed me greater clarity of thought (something I thought was lost from the head injury). Not only for my personal health, the benefits started to show at my job as well-- with the type of work that I do I noticed a large improvement in able to bring discussions and topics back to where they should be when others start to veer off. I am glad that you are still committed as am I; without it, I probably would not be here today to type this. All my best and I will try to watch some of your other videos but thank you for posting this one, R

    All day yesterday id been beating myself up about not meditating. I had an amazing experience the first time, i really relaxed into it and hadn't been able to achieve that again. Im like you, move...move...move. I am a welder and i love it because it beats me into pure exhaustion. My anxiety is over the top but i push through no matter the fatigue. I've always been like this. Then i broke down at my daughters volleyball game the other night. It was people and loud and i felt like running out of the gym, but rather just collected hidden tears that rand down my cheek before anyone could notice. Meditation spins in my mind but if i cant find time to do a long one, because 10 min isn't enough in my weird thought process, i wasn't going to make the effort. I cant afford to waste time unless its effort. Well last night i wanted to try to get into that relaxed state Id had months ago. But i found an article about climbing Mt Everest. Why I read this i have no clue, im not a climber. I'm not even a runner. But that article took me to a video link about the Sherpas who live at the base of Everest and their practices. Once that video ended YOUR video started and it spoke to me. Your words are what i needed to hear, what i was looking for all day, but i guess i had to go to Everest before finding you. Right when your video ended my phone died. Simultaneously. I plugged it in, brushed my teeth and climbed in bed with a 15 min guided meditation. It was AMAZING. Deep relaxation and just allowed the thoughts to flow in and out. Today I woke up relaxed and not feeling like i was in a car wreck. I laughed as i poured my coffee thinking...Spirit works in mysterious ways. 😉

    Thanks for sharing this Thomas. The metaphor of the mind as an animal is simple and easy to relate to. I thought this video was really well thought out and yet another reason why Yes Theory as a social movement is so attractive.

    Jeepers Creepers folks! The guy's a deluded dork. Meditation opens wide the human psyche to deviant astral beings out to delude your minds. I'm an ex neo-vedantic (hindu roots) new ager. I used to be into so much cosmic stuff: channelings, ancient wisdom, gnosticism, hindu gurus and buddhist mystics. I was enlightened by *kundalini* then 6 years ago I got properly enlightened/converted by the *Holy Spirit* which showed me what a fool I was before. Spirit led me to the real *Yahshua/Jesus Christ* and everything changed - paradigm shifted. This is being *born again* and it's an ongoing surprise to me 😁 It escapes the notice of our self-absorbed, glamour soaked world that we're in a spiritual war for souls; the immensity of ignorance is astonishing: the dark powers bedazzling the minds of the masses. We've inherited an ancient spiritual subversion: the earth is fallen, mankind is a spiritually fallen race highly prone to deceit and delusion. Frankly, and for many reasons I can't include here, we need a *Saviour* and by Jesus Christ do we have a *Glorious One* As a new ager I didn't wanna believe but in the *Light of Spirit* turns out Jesus really is the *Way, the truth and the Life* just like He said: no one comes to God except through Jesus (Matthew 7:13-14). As a neo-vedantist I wasn't convinced but turns out the Bible is Spirit breathed, written by men inspired by the *Holy Spirit.* Jesus is beautifully portrayed and endorsed in the new testament, in fact he's apparent in the old testament too (Luke 24:27 & 44) and by the *Light of Spirit* we're allowed to *see* that and *know Him.* The Bible is the Revelation of Jesus Christ. We're in the end-times for real. It's serious sh*t. A greater deception is coming (Matthew 24:24). Stop trusting in mortal men and women full of strong delusion, take a leap of faith and trust in the One True God.

    Love!! The light is bright in you! Meditation has changed everything for me. Just in these last few weeks, I let go of one of my vices. I am extremely uncomfortable with the change, the difference is, this time I am ok with the discomfort. Everyday without my means to manipulate the situation or means to control. I really had no choice but to be OK. I was forced to sit in it. Thankfully, I have been diligent with my practice for some time now, long enough that meditation is a natural part of life but it wasn’t until recently that the view got clear and the camera lens focused just right and the picture is adjusting. Life is coming at me but because my mind is clearer I have the ability to deal with it in a way that blows me away, like who the hell am I? I am amazed at the lessons that have hit me on a level I have never felt before. My heart center is wide open, open to really listening to others and showing them my true self, open to loving and open to loving myself first. This is not the end of my journey. I know what I have experienced has a purpose and that’s to share my blessings and abundance, to put out what has been added to my life in a place that is available to anyone going in that particular direction. Sending out energy and light to all those who need to hear what you are sharing and how profound meditation is and that they too can find the desire to make a simple commitment to themselves and to see what they will receive. Sending energy and light for others to find the light that burns in them. Namasta
