True Meaning of Meditation 

We often think that we are independent. We feel confident that we are not slaves. We don’t like to be slaves, dictated. We think we are independent or self-dependent. But a closer study will revealed the fact that we are really slaves and dependent. You are thinking why? Because when anything happened we disturbed, when anyone say something that we don’t like we disturbed, any thought expressed by anybody we disturbed, any object, person, things outside disturbed us. If something happens that you don’t like; it will disturb you. This is the sign of slavery. Slavery is not political; not an authority but slavery is to respond, to react to, to be effected by any external factor. If any person, thing or object can disturbed us we are slavery. So we should workout seriously to get out from this slavery. When we get up from this slavery it is independence or you are liberated. Now question arises how to get up from this slavery? The answer is simple- Meditation. Yes by meditation we can easily get out from slavery. Meditation is “Connecting yourself to you”. When you connect to self in you, then you will not bother what others do or say something nonsense about you.  Meditation allows you to get in your touch of yourself which is feeling of infinite possibilities, infinite creativity, infinite co-relations and power.
Let’s take some examples, suppose you like someone and he or she comes in your life than it feels you as the happiest person on the earth, but if he or she don’t like you than you become sad why? Because this is the condition of your mind if something happens that you like you feel happy and if something happens that you don’t like you become sad. So meditation is an art of life which teaches you there is no difference in pain and pleasure. We are unhappy because we always search our happiness in outer world but what happen when you find all happiness in yourself then you always will happy, no one can affect you.
