Meditation is food for the soul: it nourishes the universal values of compassion, caring and sharing, responsibility, non-violence and peacefulness. It helps us bond with others. These are important values to guide us and make us accept all of mankind as our family: more so in times when the world is being fragmented.
Humankind has an innate tendency to look for a joy that does not diminish, and meditation fulfills this important need.
Even when everything is going fine for us we often find ourselves being restless. Meditation can relax our stress – conscious and unconscious – and give us the sense of comfort and stability that every human being craves.
It helps us meet life’s ups and downs with centeredness, confidence and resourcefulness. Importantly, it gives us resilience so that we can not only can we remain unshaken by storms of emotions that come in everyone’s lives, but also get back on track sooner.
Meditation is the greatest grief-counsellor. Ever.
