Meditation. Happiness, Sorrow, and you...

And, to reach beyond meditation; you have to meditate. 

Life is beautiful.  The reason of its beauty is its capacity, understanding; to accept everything. 

Do not cling to your life; do not hold your life too tightly...

To become happy; you have to accept sorrow. There is no harm in staying in a sad mood; when sorrow comes. There is no harm in staying in a sad mood; sometimes. Pain has its own pleasure. Do never try get rid of your sorrow state. 

This is natural; nothing to worry about. If you seek only happiness, then you will be bored. Then happiness will not give you pleasure. Sorrow and happiness both come; accept it with a grace. The best time; the best situation to meditate is; when you are sad. Sadness is not negative.

Actually, sadness is a very sound foundation of happiness. If your life is built on a strong foundation of happiness; then, your life will produce cheerful results for you. And this is possible; if you accept your sorrow with a grace. 

Positive and negative, both always stay together. You cannot imagine of one without the support, or existence of another one. Sorrow and happiness stay together. Good and bad; stay together. Wright and wrong stay together. 

The problem starts, when you refuse to accept the negative; and you start trying to get rid of the negative in your life. There are many books written on positive thinking. It is simply thinking; it is you who have been making it either good or bad. And you start trying to get rid of your negative aspect of your life. Accept both.

Result; look at the chaos all over; around you. Now, it is natural to get rid of this kind of unhappiness; which you have created for you. And, to get rid of this kind of happiness; accept both. And, when you are accepting life as it is; this it is a state of bliss.

In the a state of bliss also sorrow; problems come; but here, you are mature, wise enough to understand your life. This understanding; comes through meditation. And, to reach beyond meditation; you have to meditate. 

Life is beautiful. The reason of its beauty is its capacity, understanding; to accept everything. 

Do not cling to your life; do not hold your life too tightly; it will suffocate. Accept the movement of your life; accept whatever your life is bringing to you; stay unaffected

And for that, staying unaffected, meditate. Meditation is the key, in understanding life; understanding you. Meditation is important. And through meditation you reach a state where you realize, for the first time that; meditation is not needed. 

Here, you understand your life; you understand yourself. And, when this understanding comes to you; you are not affected, by the mundane natural happening in your life.

Here, when you reach this state of mind where everything, good and bad, Wright and wrong is same to you; here, you are only happy. Here, only happiness prevails
