The process of meditation is nothing but trying to renew that contact which ever was and shall always be within each one of us.
In our modern lifestyles, most of our time and effort is directed towards material well-being, and we often find that our lives have become overly complicated and lacking in spontaneity. We long for inner change and growth. Pulled in different directions by multiple goals, we are unable to prioritize these or to find the balance that gives us a sense of well-being and joy.
Meditation trains our mind to regulate itself and leads us beyond the outer activity into the inner silence of our hearts, where we find ourselves connected to our Divine essence. A balanced state develops in which we are less affected by the ups and downs of everyday life. Our natural capacity for wisdom and right action begins to manifest, allowing us to better prioritize the conflicting demands of life.
Sustained practice of meditation allows us to feel a deep and abiding connection with our inner selves, and in turn gives a lasting direction and meaning to our lives.
More and more people around the globe are turning to meditation, realizing that in order to reach our full potential as complete, balanced human beings, our inner spiritual longings must be addressed alongside the material demands of daily life.
As a bird needs two wings to fly, so a human being needs the two wings of existence, the spiritual and the material, to lead a natural and harmonious life.
"Meditation is an instrument for the purification of the mind and its preparation for communion with the Ultimate. That is, meditation is a means to an end, not an end in itself."
