As a meditation teacher and host of the global ZEN commuter Meditation Podcast Thom has taught meditation to thousands of people wanting to live a calmer, fuller life. He began a meditation practice back in 1980, when he was eighteen years old, and considers it to be the most impactful skill learned in his life. " Through the years, and up to now, I have kept my meditation practice alive, practicing over 5,000 hours. In between those times, I have interviewed noted meditation thought leaders on my podcast, ZEN commuter, and studied extensively on a variety of meditation practices. I have devoted my life to helping people becoming calmer and more purposeful through mindfulness practice." Support Thom on Patreon
Listen to the song I wrote after being inspired by my conversation with Thom called Master of Mind and all the other Podsongs.
Lyrics to the song that was inspired by the interview:
ARE YOU THE MASTER OF YOUR MIND?
You can build your body and hone yourself an incredible physique
Perform fantastic physical feats that must be seen to be believed
But can you breathe and only breathe
Yes can you breathe and only breathe
Or buy an education that's the envy of all
Become an economic mastermind know the workings of the world
What good is such a powerful force
If you can't still your mind and hold it on a course
Are you the master of your mind?
You could study the languages learn Sanskrit and Greek
Understand the ancient texts and find long-forgotten techniques
BRIDGE + CHORUS
Or become a leader of the military with power over men
Put a country to the sword or show mercy upon them
BRIDGE + CHORUS
Or use your life as a politician and be an honest one at that
Make the world a better place or at least a part of it
