Ever Searched on YouTube for water birth videos?

Reading Time: 5 minutes

Last month I went to visit my friends Ilan and Fanny, and their two beautiful kids in a small town an hour outside the city. I spent the night at their place, and in the morning woke up to the sounds of Fanny playing with Shia (4) and Aliya (3). I jumped out of bed, picked up a toy and got in the mix… and after a few minutes Shia asked his mom, “Where’s Daddy?” Fanny replied, “Daddy’s meditating”. Shia nodded, and the fun continued.

When I heard this, I had two thoughts that came one after the other… “Whoa, these kids are really lucky!” followed by, “Whoa, I wish my Dad meditated when I was growing up.”

You see, my life can be divided into two chapters: life before meditation, and life after. Life after meditation has less stress, increased presence and more happiness. I have a greater sense of purpose in my work and much healthier relationships. My only regret about meditation, is that I didn’t start it sooner.

That’s why realizing my friend’s children were growing up in an environment where meditation was as common as the concept of cereal for breakfast got me really excited. Here are a few of the implications I think this has:
