The foremost quality of a meditator is very similar to that of nature – resilience. In nature, there is no action, and yet everything gets accomplished – this is also the theory of Wu Wei – the art of non-doing.
The Way of Effortless Action
It is an important concept in Taoism. Action without action is the primary concept of Wu Wei. Primarily, it is mind-boggling to someone who works hard, day and night, trying to achieve targets in life and work, yet doesn’t make it to the end line.
On the other hand, nature never seems to be taking any action. It is silent and inactive to the naked eye and yet everything gets accomplished. Water is transferred from one point to another, trees grow, planting their roots even in rocks and concrete places. Nature often achieves things without deliberately acting. It accomplishes things by non-action.
But that doesn’t mean Taoism is teaching us not to work and procrastinate. It is trying to explain effortless action. For example, there is a capacity to how much you can do effortlessly. If you got to complete a project, there are two ways to get it done. The first one is to be vigorous, work outstandingly hard and show off your hard work and the other way is to work effortlessly, bit by bit, every day, until your brain can increase the capacity to make more effort effortlessly.
Making minimum effort each day to achieve maximum results is the key to being resilient.
Replacing the Unwanted
In his book, the Slight Edge, Jeff Olson talks about the key to becoming resilient in life. He says, “Trying to get rid of an unwanted habit is a bit like trying not to think about an elephant (the more you try not to think about it, the more you think about it). That’s because what you focus on, grows. Which is why people who put a lot of energy into focusing on what they don’t want, by talking about it, complaining about it, or fretting about it, usually get precisely that unwanted thing. It’s tough to get rid of the habit you don’t want by facing it head-on. The way to accomplish it is to replace the unwanted habit with another habit that you do want. And creating new and better habits, ones that empower and serve you, is something you know how to do. You do it the same way you built any habit you have: one step at a time. Baby steps. The slight edge.”
The Slight Edge
Nitaai Breathing gives you that slight edge. It is the starting point of all achievement. Exhaling the Nitaai sound each morning is like taking baby steps towards effortless productivity. Day by day, you can achieve better focus, efficiency and work-life balance. You are suddenly resilient to situations in life. You fall, and you get up again. You withstand stressful situations with ease and recover from them quickly.
Nitaai Breathing gives you a fresh flow of vibrations each morning to get in tune with your nature. You are achieving higher results through “effortless” action. You are not stuck in the old fluctuations or basic thought processes. Ideas flow freely. You become one with nature. You experience a shift and it is phenomenal.
