THE POWER OF MANTRA

Have a mantra and use it to find the clarity, the joy, the power you crave. Let us start now: It Is Friday ItIsFriday It Is Friday #ItIsFriday It Is Friday #ItIsFriday It Is Friday ?

Anyone who has taken a yoga class or been exposed to Hindu or Buddhist thought has probably heard of the concept of a mantra. In Sanskrit, it means “sacred utterance” – essentially a word, a phrase, a thought, even a simple sound – intended to provide clarity or spiritual guidance. A mantra can be especially helpful in the meditative process because it allows us to block out everything else while we focus.

Marcus Aurelius wrote:

“Erase the false impression from your mind by constantly saying to yourself, I have it in my soul to keep out any evil, desire or any kind of disturbance – instead, seeing the true nature of things, I will give them only their due. Always remember this power that nature gave you.”

Marcus Aurelius suggested using a mantra: a phrase to use when we feel false impressions, distractions, or the crush of everyday life upon us. It says, essentially that you have a power within you to keep that out; you can see the truth.

Change the wording as you like. That part is up to you.
