Take inner path to truth
MEDITATION enhances our intuition by helping us ‘smell’ the circumstances. We somehow know if it’s right for us to be in a place or not, whether we should be a part of something or withdraw from it.
We are taught that education empowers an individual to carve out his own path, but I have seen many educated, financially-empowered youth give in to a particular lifestyle even at the cost of their own well-being.
We seem to ignore common sense for the sake of convenience.
One of the reasons for this trend is that none of us wants to be left out of our social circle. Peer pressure becomes the order of the day.
Introspection increases our will to obey our conscience and gives voice to our original goodness.
It also ensures we stand by our ethical lifestyle choices unapologetically, even when it meant being the odd one out.
Connecting with the truth enables us to see things as they are.
At crucial stages in our journey, such as when we have to choose our field of study and work, meditation helps us to put aside the noise of social expectations and make decisions in tune with our inner calling.
Through its regular practice, it enhances our spiritual powers and we are able to judge when to hold on with courage and when it’s time to let go and move on.
This understanding of ourselves and our journey gives us the real independence that young adults aspire for.
Going within is not only a great technique to relax our mind and body, but is much more than that. When we connect to the Divine in our thoughts, we access all that He has.
And it is for this flavour, especially, that I recommend this inner journey to everyone.
