17 Famous People Who Will Inspire You to Meditate Now

我們常常在雜誌上看到,名流們以享用奢華SPA、高檔餐廳美食,或是昂貴假期作為逃離壓力環境的手段。然而,無論你相信與否,有些名人卻擁抱「靜心冥想」這項古老的教導,來為自己的身心重新充電。

「如果健身是為了頭腦,那麼靜心冥想就是為了靈魂。」

靜心冥想是一種讓我們把注意力集中在一個點上的練習,像是完全專注在呼吸,專注在身體的感受,或是專注在重覆的文字或句子中。換句話說,靜心冥想牽涉的是將注意力從紛亂的刺激中移開,進而專注在「當下」這個片刻中。

雖然聽起來很簡單,但要在不斷奔流的念頭中找到平靜,其實是有些困難,需要許多練習的。

如果你想知道哪些你最喜歡的明星們認同靜心冥想的力量,以此作為療癒靈魂的方式,請繼續閱讀下去吧:

 

1. 珍妮佛·安妮斯頓(JENNIFER ANISTON)

For the beautiful actress, Jennifer Aniston, having a sense of inner peace makes a lot of difference, and she achieves peace through meditation. She says it keeps her looking good.
“It just centers you, and your stress levels are just down. And you find yourself interacting in the world much easier and better, in a calmer way. And there’s just a peaceful joy that sort of comes over you… [It]’s really changed everything. Starting your day off with that and ending with that is pretty powerful… When I get lazy and don’t get it in, I can feel a difference.”

對於這位美麗的女演員來說,藉由靜心冥想體認到「內在平靜」,帶給她極大的轉變,她並且表示這讓她保持美麗。以下是她對靜心冥想的分享:

「靜心冥想是專注在你自己,你的壓力指數會迅速地降低,而你會發現自己以更簡單、更好、更平靜的方式與世界互動,而你會感到純然的平靜喜悅來到你的身邊,這完全改變了一切。從這種狀態開始,並且以這種狀態結束你的一天,是非常有力量的,當我偷懶不靜心冥想的時候,我能感受到其中的差別。」

休·傑克曼這位國際知名演員,用以下的話美麗地描述了靜心冥想:「靜心冥想是關於全然地無求,這是最終極的休息,比你有過最舒服的睡眠還棒。這是頭腦的平靜,這讓每件事變的更敏銳,尤其是喚起對於週遭事物的感激,這讓生命保持新鮮。」

 

4. 凱蒂·佩芮(KATY PERRY)

Even with her hectic lifestyle, the successful singer, Katy Perry, swears to squeeze meditation whenever she can. For her, meditation is a way to reorganize herself, balance her life and deal with the stress of touring.
To quote her, “I do [meditation] as much as I possibly can… it works… It puts me in the best mood. It’s the only time my mind gets absolute rest… it’s the deepest rest your brain gets. I’m [always] dreaming about whatever I’m creating next, or relationships, or blah, blah, blah. So I’m never really off. And meditation is actually the one time I get to really reset.”

儘管這位成功女歌手的生活非常忙碌,她仍堅持擠出任何可以的時間來靜心冥想,對他來說,靜心冥想能整理好她自己,平衡她的生活,並且解決巡迴演出的壓力。以下引用她的話:

「我儘可能在能力範圍中作最多的靜心冥想,這確實有效,這讓我處於最佳的情緒中。這是我唯一能讓心智處於絕對休息的時間,這是我的頭腦能得到的最深度的休息,我永遠都在夢想我能創造些什麼,或是想著與他人的關係…等,所以我一直沒有時間讓大腦真正關機,靜心冥想是唯一讓我能重開機的時間。」

 

5. 艾倫·狄珍妮(ELLEN DEGENERES)

For the talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres, meditation helps her restart herself.
She can be heard saying, “It feels good. Kinda like when you have to shut your computer down, just sometimes when it goes crazy, you just shut it down and when you turn it on, it’s okay again. That’s what meditation is to me.”

對於這位當紅脫口秀主持人來說,靜心冥想讓他能重新開機。他說:「這感覺很棒,就像你把電腦關機,當有時候世界變的瘋狂,你就只是關機,然後當你開機的時候,一切又變得OK了,這就是靜心冥想對我而言的意義。」

 

6. 羅素·布蘭德(RUSSEL BRAND)

8. 歐普拉·溫芙蕾(OPRAH WINFREY)

Often we wonder: Where does Oprah Winfrey get her vibrant energy? In an interview, she shares that it is through everyday centering of herself, and she does this through meditation. Oprah is said to have discovered Transcendental Meditation while preparing for an episode of “Oprah the Next Chapter.”
“…Being still with ourselves and coming back to the center and recognizing that something is more important than you…brings a kind of energy… an intention that we’ve never had before. You can’t imagine what’s happened in the company… It’s been fantastic… The one thing I want to do is center myself every day and make that a practice for myself. Because I’m 1,000 percent better when I do that.”

我們經常想知道,歐普拉如何得到她如此活躍的能量?在一次的訪問中,她分享道:這是藉由每天都專注在她自己,而她是透過靜心冥想達成的。歐普拉說她在準備一集脫口秀節目時發現了超覺靜坐,她說:

「平靜的與自己在一起,回到自己的中心,並且認知到有比我們更重要的事物,會帶來一種能量,一種我們未曾有過的意圖。你無法相信這帶來了什麼,這太令人驚奇了,我只是每天以自己為中心,並且為自己付諸實行,而當我這麼做的時候,我的表現會比平常好上十倍以上!」

 

9. 荷莉·貝瑞(HALLE BERRY)

Halle Berry says “I meditate… all the time… I’ve been doing a series of meditations since the day [my father] died when I go to this gazebo—I imagine it in my mind—and there he is sitting there, and he says to me all the things that he should have said to me in his life.”

荷莉·貝瑞表示:「打從我父親去世那天開始,我開始不斷地靜心冥想,我在腦中想像了一個涼亭,父親會坐在那裡,對我說他生前應該會對我說的一切的話。」

 

10. 李察·吉爾(RICHARD GERE)

There is a certain charm on how the actor/ director, Richard Gere, ages. Perhaps this can be attributed to his long time meditation practice.
“I remember when I was just starting to practice meditation—24 years old, trying to come to grips with my life. I was holed up in my sh**** little apartment for months at a time, just… doing my best to do sitting practice. I had a very clear feeling that I’d always been in meditation, that I’d never left meditation… It helps me set my motivation for the day.”

歲月對這為演員/導演來說,有著某種特殊的魅力。這也許歸功於他長時間的練習靜心冥想,他提到:

「我記得當我24歲開始練習靜心冥想的時候,我試圖藉此掌握自己的人生。我曾經花了好幾個月的時間,窩在我那小小的公寓裡面,盡全力的進行靜坐練習。我有一種很清晰的感覺,我這輩子都會持續靜心冥想,而且永遠離不開靜心冥想,這幫助我每天設立自己的動機。」

 

11. 伊娃·曼德絲(EVA MENDES)

For the ever gorgeous star, Eva Mendes, there’s a plethora of benefits you can reap from meditation.
“[Meditation] really helps create not only a sense of balance… but serenity and kind of a calm state of mind… it helps me deal with life’s ups and downs, coming from more of a centered place. Also, it helps with creativity… it’s tapping into something so deep that when I reap the rewards, I do not even know I’m reaping them.”

這位始終閃亮的巨星表示,你能從靜心冥想中得到許多的好處:「靜心冥想不只能幫助創造平衡的感受,還能讓心智處於一種平靜的狀態。來自於我自己的中心,幫助我面對生命中的高低起伏,而且還能幫助我提升創造力。這帶來的幫助如此之深,甚至當我因此獲益時,我甚至沒意識到我是從靜心冥想中獲得益處。」

 

12. 雪瑞兒·可洛(SHERYL CROWE)

Aside from subscribing to other holistic practices, Sheryl Crowe, also believes in the power of meditation.
“One of the things – and this comes from someone who was highly self-critical and a type-A personality – that has changed my life is meditating.”

雪瑞兒·可洛同樣相信靜心冥想的力量,她說:「對於我這個相當自我批判又A型人格的人來說,靜心冥想是一件改變我人生的事。」

 

13. 諾瓦克·喬科維奇(NOVAK DJOKOVIC)

Tennis is one tough physical and mental sports, and the world tennis champion Novak Djokovic openly admits that he succumb to the relaxing effect of meditation when he needs to recharge.
“Obviously, there is a huge amount of pressure and stress and everything involved, so you need to have a place where you know you can switch off and recharge your batteries. I guess it’s private, in a way. But I just can say that it’s… very calm and very beautiful… where I like to spend time.”

網球是一種需要堅韌體能與心智的運動,而世界球王諾瓦克·喬科維奇公開坦承他對於靜心冥想所能達成的放鬆效果感到心折,並且在需要時藉此重新充電。他說:

「很明顯地,有許多困擾與壓力會把一切事情都捲進去,所以你需要一個能讓自己切換到『關機模式』並且重新充電的地方,我想這是很私人的,我只能說這是個很平靜又很美的地方,我很喜歡花時間在那裡。」

 

14. 雷·達里歐(RAY DALIO)

Meditation is one key practice towards success, take it from the Wall Street Trader, Ray Dalio.
“Meditation more than anything in my life was the biggest ingredient of whatever success I’ve had… It opens the mind. It creates an openness, a freedom… that creativity just kind of comes through and it creates an equanimity. In other words, you could step back and you can put things in perspective… [It] has given me-centeredness and creativity… It’s also given me peace and health.”

對這位華爾街大亨來說,靜心冥想是一把通往成功的鑰匙,他提到:「靜心冥想是在我人生中最大的,讓我成功的要素,比任何其他事情都還重要。它打開了我的心智,創造出開放與自由,並且創造了平靜。換句話說,你可以往後一步,並且透過遠景來看事情。這讓我回到自己的中心,帶給我創造力,並且為我帶來平靜與健康。」

 

15. 史提夫·賈伯斯(STEVE JOBS)

Wonder how the Apple Founder, Steve Jobs, maintains his calm? Meditation.
“If you just sit and observe, you will see how restless your mind is. If you try to calm it, it only makes things worse, but over time it does calm, and when it does, there’s room to hear more subtle things — that’s when your intuition starts to blossom and you start to see things more clearly and be in the present more.”

想知道蘋果電腦的創辦人史提夫·賈伯斯如何保持平靜嗎?沒錯,就是靜心冥想。他說:「如果你只是坐著觀察自己,你會發現自己的大腦如此的缺乏休息,而如果你試圖讓大腦平靜下來,只會讓事情變得更糟。但是隨著時間,大腦會平靜下來,而當它平靜下來,你才會有空間去聆聽更細微的事情。此時,你的直覺力會開始綻放,你會更清晰得看見每一個事物,並且更加活在當下。」

 

16.DJ魔比(DJ/ MUSICIAN MOBY)

Being in a state of calm without having to go on a retreat out of the country is what the DJ/ Musician Moby loves about meditation.
“I thought… meditation involved… moving to some country and renouncing wealth and materialism… [but] it’s a simple practice that calms the mind… and the thing that won me over… was its effectiveness. Nothing else helped me quiet my mind and go to a calm, centered place. The thing that makes it effective is you don’t have to do all that much, and, as a profoundly lazy person, I appreciate that.”

不用遠離塵囂就能達到平靜的狀態,是DJ魔比愛上靜心冥想的原因。他說:「我原本以為靜心冥想一定要搬到鄉村並且放棄財富與物質。然而,靜心冥想其實只是一種簡單的練習,能夠幫我們平靜大腦。對我來說最吸引人的是它的有效性,沒有任何其他事情能像靜心冥想一樣幫我靜下大腦,進入平靜、在自己中心的狀態。最有效的是你只需要靜心冥想而已,不用多做些什麼,對於我這個懶人來說,這是最值得欣賞的一點。」

 

17. 拉奎爾·齊默曼(RACQUEL ZIMMERMAN)

Meditation often evokes a certain calmness that can influence many aspects in one’s life, and this is what the model Racquel Zimmerman believes.
“As a model, I always joke that it’s very similar to being a stewardess – you’re very often at airports and hotel rooms, alone… Meditation has helped a lot in that now when I’m on a plane I meditate, and that makes me calm… The frustration is gone … Meditation changed my whole lifestyle…”

名模拉奎爾·齊默曼相信,靜心冥想所喚起的平靜感受,能影響人生中的許多面向。他說:「我總是笑稱模特兒就像是空服員,你總是一個人待在機場與旅館中。現在,靜心冥想幫助我非常多,當我在飛機上的時候我會靜心冥想,而這讓我保持平靜,挫折感消失了,靜心冥想改變了我的生活方式。」
