How Meditation helps

Its difficult to put it plainly how meditation can help us. Each individual tends to react to the same stimulus differently. What works for me may not work for you. Still there are certain benefits which can be termed as universal.


LOVE : Meditation enhances self love. This is often denounced in our society as being selfish. There is a huge difference between the two. Meditation enables us to love ourselves better. When we love who we are then love permeates every aspect of our life. It shows up in how we treat our selves. Others perceive these undercurrents and many a times treat us accordingly. Only if we love ourselves will we allow anyone else to love us. This self love thus creates more love in our lives.


POSITIVE ENERGY : When we meditate the flow of positive life force increases. We are brimming with energy. The effect of this positive energy is two fold. We are filled with positive mood enhancing thoughts. We work better. Our creativity is at its zenith.


CLARITY OF THOUGHT: Another benefit of meditation is clarity of thought. The silence inside us helps in contemplation. When we are serene we can notice even a little ripple . It helps in seeing things in the right perspective. Our reactions are more attuned to the situation.


FORGIVENESS : Meditation helps us in cultivating forgiveness. It makes us realize how human we are. Forgiveness is very important especially in the context of self. Sometimes it is more difficult to forgive ourselves. When we carry a grudge in our hearts, we carry dead weight. When we are able to forgive that weight lightens. Light hearts can soar.


The benefits are endless. I'll take them up again in a new post.
