Please watch or listen to the beginning few minutes teaching of the meditation. A modern lifestyle divides a person through distraction and diversion. This is unhealthy to every part of a human being, as well as brings detriment to family, workplace, and the world. Meditation has the goal of Presence, integrity, and wisdom such that integrity ensures ethical action, Presence is lived as kindness and respect, and wisdom is the common source of words, decisions, and gratitude. Distraction undermines all of this human excellence.
The toroidal flow is the direct experience of these truths. Distracted, there is no continuity of mind, concentration, ease or peace of mind. Distraction riles the emotional body, creates reaction, irritation, impatience, survival-mode responses. Distraction generates cortisol because distraction divides the self into parts, each unsettled, each disturbed from its innate flow (mind, emotions, physical processes, and such).
Meditation trains us to notice. But more importantly, it provides the opportunity to experience a greater Real. As one experiences the fact and flow of energy and auric fields, of peace and continuity of mind, of contentment of the feeling nature, then the divisive and destructive nature of distraction can be understood for its negativity.
