When we learn Vedic Meditation, we are taught that if at any moment during the meditation session we feel that we are beginning to forget the mantra, then we should not try to keep on remembering it, we should let it go.
One of the profound and common effects that we experience by meditating twice daily is that we are able to let go of the unsustainable in our lives.
Unsustainable friendships or relationships or careers, toxic substances or any other unsustainable habits that were able to continue to be sustained before learning to meditate are much harder to sustain once we add twice daily meditation to our lives.
Quite simply, Meditators are able to more easily follow charm, move away from aversion and let go of the unsustainable.
Vedic Meditation gives us a systematic method every day of removing stress from our physiology. This allows us to rely more and more on our intuition and we therefore find it much harder to strain and maintain the unsustainable.
So next time a life-long habit that you previously found charming starts to lose its charm, then simply apply the same instruction we use in meditation: if we feel that we are beginning to forget it, then we should not try to keep on remembering it, we should let it go.
