    It was 4 years back when i wanted to conquer

    the world. I started drawing as a kid and at 12 discovered my artistic abilities when i would create something and be appreciated for it. Those were the best moments in my otherwise depressing childhood/ teen years as i was an underdog barely known at school, the misfit, the...

    One day i was meditating,

    my whole consciousness shifted to a point. I felt like shrinking and falling back into my heart, lost body consciousness altogether. Just a silent awareness was left to perceive. An oceanic joy broke into my awareness. After that i have felt that extreme ecstasy even when i m...

    Meditation helps me to become more grounded in

    the moment. I can slow down and see past disappointments and future worries as just mind activity. These thoughts are like passing clouds and meditation has helped me to acknowledge this. When the clouds part, there is just "now" and that is always an opportunity. I love...

    Meditation can get you high off of you just

    "being you." Imagine getting buzzed off of an energy field that is so powerful, it takes nothing more than you dropping into yourself to experience it. Here's all you have to do: 1. Sit quietly. 2. Close your eyes. 3. Focus on your breath in and out. 4. Allow yourself to "be...

    Meditation is a great way to clear your mind

    when too many things are going on...The Shotokan Karate class I took as a child made us meditate almost everyday. Thanks to that class...I do it at home almost everyday.

    "Meditation is a simple process

    The Empty Mind, Open To Anything

    There is a wide difference between the empty mind and the mind which is relaxed and controlled so that only good can survive therein. The unoccupied mind is an open invitation for entry by unwanted forces.  The relaxed mind which doesn't get in the way of spiritual sight is the...

    Goal of meditation is to become aware of the one
