One day we feel powerful and the next we feel crippled. One moment we feel over the moon and the next moment we are grief stricken. It happens even if there’s absolutely no change in our circumstances. With the same life, same partner, same job and what have you, on some days you feel happy and fulfilled while on another day, under the same set of circumstances, you feel utterly useless, maybe even suicidal. The see-saw of emotions thoughts and reactions. Confined to the four walls of the mind, unleash its secrets and lead a life of fulfilment and achievement. We the creatures if vast oceans resign to our fate in the well.
Meditation is about hopping our of the puddle of our negativity and jumping into the lake of bliss. True meditation is not just about stilling the mind. Even a good edge of the seat thriller can still your mind for a couple of hours. Instead, meditation is straightening out the knots in the consciousness, it is about calming the tides of emotions and afflictions in the ocean of life.
