Why we need Meditation
If we closely observe our minds, the majority of the thoughts that run in our minds are either from our past or from our future, and when we know we can’t change our past and we can’t predict our future then why we are ruining our present moment?? This is something very important we need to understand.
If we can consciously remain mindful of the present moment, we can find peace and balance in our lives more easily.
In this faster-growing world, everyone is running behind earning money, fame & power and these have become the only priorities of life for people. We are indulged in this materialistic world where physical satisfaction is the only thing that we think for. But what about our inner self? Aren’t we going far from our inner self? Is this money going to be with us forever? Why God has given us Life? To run behind money or to live with peace, love, and happiness? These questions are becoming a serious matter to think about. The outer world develops itself every day but our inner world doesn’t. The only way to develop our inner world is to Meditate. By meditation, we can connect our mind to our soul and our soul to the universe in this way Life would be much happier and stress-free.
How Meditation Heals Us?
While running behind this materialistic world we often lose our control over our inner self and our mind always thinks about these fake ways to satisfy us which results in stress. More than 90% of adults are said to be stressed in the world. In order to get rid of this stress, the best thing to do is to Meditate. Meditation is nothing but just connecting our mind to our inner self (Soul). There are various meditation techniques that lead us to peace and happiness. While meditating we have to avoid each and every thought related to this materialistic world and have to prepare our mind to just focus on our inner self. In the beginning, it seems tough to control our minds to focus on one point but with practice, we can achieve this. And with continuous practice, our mind becomes calmer and composed we can then feel more peace inside us and stress has no more space in our mind. Almost every single second of a day there is something running in our mind thoughts & thoughts all the time but with the help of meditation, we can realize all these thoughts, worries and anxiety we are carrying with us are just temporary. The major reason behind all these restless thoughts is our attachments towards this physical world and yes believe that this is changing every single second. Things we were attached to in our past we don’t like them anymore and now if we consciously think about that, we will surely realize how much time of our lives we have already wasted in just running behind those things. Meditation is the way that helps us realize this and helps us to be in the present moment.
