Meditation makes a difference Print E-mail
Wednesday, 11 February 2009
I worked for a newspaper in Kroonstad. I moved there to be with my future wife, whom I married during the time I was there. After working at the newspaper for a year and a half, I discovered it was going to be dissolved.

Being in an Afrikaans town and being terrible at Afrikaans made it difficult to find a job in the town.
The job with the newspaper as a Layout Artist was ok – I could manage the Afrikaans, as most of it was already typed out or written for me.

When I discovered the company was going to be dissolved, I really hadn't any clue of what I should do.
I meditated that night while I was looking out the window at a full moon. I will never forget that moment, looking at the moon with tears in my eyes. Being a man I probably shouldn't disclose that.

The next day I had a great idea and emailed newspapers around the country that I was looking for a position as a Layout Artist and told the story around the paper being dissolved. I had a very positive feeling about what I was doing.

I came to Johannesburg, where I had two interviews lined up. I got both the positions and decided to take the best one, which offered the most and was in a better part of Johannesburg. I worked there with newspapers and magazines for nine years eventually I realised it was time to move on.

After a little meditation feeling wonderfully positive, I was granted two interviews. I didn’t get the first one , but the second one was at the company where I still work today – a much better position than the other.

I am now in a beautiful part of Johannesburg. Driving through these streets makes me realise how lucky I am. I have been working for a wonderful company for eight months, and I am in awe of how meditation has helped me.

When I don't meditate, I find myself being very negative and find life difficult – even in traffic. When I do meditate the taxis don't bother me and everyone around me even seems to be in a better mood, I'm sure they can see the positivity in me.

I hope you enjoyed my life changing experiences.
