The desire to live, interest in life, the taste of life and joy come back thanks to the technique...
I always knew that the world I see exists only in my perspective and for successful happy and healthy life you need to learn how to be aware of the illusions of your brain and the true intentions of your soul. I have read a lot of literature and went to many lectures in such topics and all of it made sense. Yet I never new how to utilise the knowledge in my life, it always felt like my life doesn't belong to me, like I always was caught up in overthinking my future or past. And everytime exiting the a class of meditation or yoga, all of my problems were coming back...
How to reach my potential?
Understand my true desires?
Get rid of masks and illusions?
I found answers to all of these questions at a retreat.

The mind is a powerful thing. Our thoughts can help us reach our potential or it can create masks of illusion to you from reaching your full potential. Mediation is good to calm down the mind but you have affirmed what true to the subconscious in order to live a joyful, tasteful life.

This is an important topic and I relate to a lot of what you said. There are times in life where I have felt like I have a good amount of mindfulness in my day to day, like when I practiced tai chi daily, or yoga daily (back in high school), but something always came up after a while and I went back to my normal state of...preoccupation? Something like that. All I know is it feels 'off' or 'wrong' in some way.

With every upheaval life has to offer, I always have to recalibrate. Although the method of using 5 or 10 minute guided meditation via an app sounds cheap and corny, sometimes its enough to get me going and then it slowly increases to a larger focus on mindfulness. Completing the book 'The Artist's Way' always gets me in a state where I am more conscious of myself and my interactions with the world.

I think it is possible to bring these things into our everyday life, it is possibly just a matter of finding what really clicks for us. For me, it is a daily practice of Tai Chi or Kundalini Yoga, along with daily journaling. I just need to stop moving around so much so I can have an uninterrupted routine. Now that's the real challenge :/

Good luck in your quest for mindfulness!
