Positive Meditative Thought (“When you have the kind of problems that you have, you need to be meditating all day long”)

My teacher Mr. Ambrister
(18 years ago) I was struggling and hoping to get some advise on how to deal with what seemed to be an impossible situation. I called my meditation teacher, Mr. Ambrister, and told him about my situation. He said Sonny you have to meditate more. I said “meditate more what do you mean? I meditate 3 times a day. I teach meditation and breathing classes here at my bookstore on Sunday and Wednesdays. There are days that I will close myself off from the world and meditate a whole day.” Mr. Ambrister laughed and said “Sonny when you have the kind of problems that you have you have to meditate all day long.” Then I understood.
I had a busy life with many aspects to it. I had a wife and kids. I had my gutter and window cleaning business. I also had a metaphysical bookstore. I also had meditation students to deal with. And at this time, during my first marriage, I was desperately struggling to hold together my marriage and family. I was in over my head. The problems were mounting. When Mr. Ambrister told me that “with the problems I have I need to be meditating all day long”, it reminded me of something else he used to say. “It shall take all the strength that God can give you, simply to live my friend, simply to live.”
I needed to let God and my higher self handle the problems and my life. I needed to be chanting my mantra all throughout the day, while walking from place to place, or working, to raise my vibration. When I was riding in the car, I needed to be listening to information of a higher order. When I got home, I needed to be watching movies that reminded me of the magic of Gods Universe. Even when I spent time with my wife and kids or with my business, I needed to be reminding myself that they are sent from God and I am an instrument serving God at every moment. I needed to be meditating all day long.
I love discovering the mysteries of God and The Universe. My goal is to allow as much of the infinite to come through as freely as possible as I live my life as a father, husband, son, brother friend, meditation teacher, writer, and business owner.
I teach meditation, interpret dreams, write, and try to share as much as I learn along the way as possible.
