“Why should I meditate? Isn’t it a waste of time? I can finish off one or two chores using that time…“ Does this thought feel familiar? Let me try to put it as briefly as I can… There is no more beautiful experience than knowing your own self. The only way to be selfless is to connect with your true self. Everything else will make you selfish in some way or the other. The real nature (Sattva) of your true self is always divine, is to be in service to the purpose of your birth. It may take a lifetime for some of us to feel that connection, or a few years or if you are really lucky enough, may be months of practice... How fascinating would it be to finally wake up one day and say “hello” to your true, beautiful, divine self?!
My 2 year old son is holding a torch light in one of his hands. He managed to switch it on and is intrigued by the sharp focused light. He is trying to touch the light with the other hand on all the surfaces and in the process he is running from room to room angry not able to "catch" the light. Isn't this how many of us are trying to seek God ? Aham Brahmasmi... (Meaning: I am the Infinite Reality). Simple meaning: God is within each one of us. It is simply ignorant to seek God outside. We all have the power to be God if we utilize our full potential for the goodness of others. We all are here for a purpose.
