Expressing our spiritual truths about who we are and what we really want is the key to peace and spiritual wellness. By listening to ourselves, trusting ourselves and acknowledging what we really feel, we are allowed to change what is not working and to live in a more meaningful, purposeful way. This is the best place to make any decision or take an action from. Here is what one of my meditation mentors have to say on this:
Meditation plays a vital role in cleansing the negative emotions in a person. Several prisoners around the world have done some breathing exercises and meditation, and have been able to get completely rid of the hatred, anger and the revengeful feeling that grip them.
“Inside every culprit, I see a victim crying for help. It’s the stress, lack of broad vision about life, lack of understanding and bad communication, which leads to violence in society. Love, being the very central force of a human life gets covered by stress and distress. Only the spiritual knowledge and education in human values, can help an individual stand up to the demands of the day and also help in managing the problems one faces in their daily lives.”
~ Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
Human beings are at the crossroads today, where on one side they become violent or frustrated and on the other side depressed or suicidal.

It is essential if you wish to learn meditation, that you receive meditation instruction from a qualified teacher.
