Have you been living your life believing that peace is merely transitory, and a difficult problem will always come along threatening to take the feeling of inner peace away? Meditation is a viable solution to whatever feelings of insecurity and fear you may have. If you want to truly let go of all that anger and start your journey of spiritual self-discovery, you will definitely set yourself toward the right direction by trying out meditation.
1. Meditation will finally lead to the realization that you are loved.
Your childhood experiences or certain people’s comments might have led you to believe that you are unloved. But if you look closely around you, you will realize that these unfounded feelings are untrue. Being loved comes from knowing who you are and forgiving yourself for the mistakes that you may have made.
2. Meditation will help you monitor your feelings.
Meditation gives you that invaluable capability to objectively assess your feelings and understand where your fear are coming from. And once you are able to detach yourself from your emotions, you will start to realize that most of them are caused by your own thoughts. This realization will allow you to actively influence your thoughts and think more positively.
3. Meditation makes you a kinder person.
With a higher sense of awareness caused by meditation, you will gain the ability to see kindness in what other people do. You will be able to understand where people are coming from, and react with more kindness. It will give you the strength to turn away from gossip, or talk kindly whenever a someone on the other end of a telephone call is becoming particularly difficult.
4. Meditation helps you accept.
There will always be that voice of rejection hardwired into your brain. What meditation does is to distil all the negative energy and craziness, and channels it into something better: acceptance. Meditation helps fill your heart with unconditional love and serenity, and it comes from knowing that you don’t have to change anything—not your circumstances or the people around you—in order to truly know what it feels like to be accepted. You can let go of trying to control everything around you, and simply accept yourself for who you are.
