Benifits of Meditation
It Makes You WISE
It gives you perspective: By observing your mind, you realise you don’t have to be slave to it. You realise it throws tantrums, gets grumpy, jealous, happy and sad but that it doesn’t have to run you.
Meditation is quite simply mental hygiene: clear out the junk, tune your talents, and get in touch with yourself. Think about it, you shower every day and clean your body, but have you ever showered your mind? As a consequence, you’ll feel more clear and see thing with greater perspective. “The quality of our life depends on the quality of our mind,” writes Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. We can’t control what happens on the outside but we do have a say over the quality of our mind. No matter what’s going on, if your mind is ok, everything is ok. Right now.
But what else can it do?!
