The basis of all this comes when you know your true identity through meditation. Meditation is not the route you take when you have some severe problem, as someone from Spain commented on this blog; it is the way to a peaceful, healthy and happy living. So what is this true identity? It is the ‘soul’ that resides in each of us. And what is soul, you might want to ask – Soul is nothing but a form of conscious energy. Any science student can immediately tell you one most important property of energy which is – Energy can neither be created nor destroyed – and in the same way, soul never dies or vanishes, it only travels from one living body to another. So when a person dies, it is the soul that leaves the body and takes birth at a different place.
Well, most of you might not agree with what I have written and may want to raise questions, and to be honest I also took time to understand and digest this knowledge. Given that scenario, I would be least surprised if you react to this in a totally non believer’s way.
My point is a simple one: Knowing yourself is such a beautiful thing, makes you feel strong, focused and happy and it is our birth right to feel like that. Take this as a challenge and see if there is anything that you can not achieve with this knowledge.
