Rediscovering deep inner peace, increasing personal power and ...
People learn to meditate for a variety of reasons. For many it is simply a desire for inner peace,
for others it is part of their quest for truth and understanding, and for some it is the hope of
discovering the holy grail of happiness. Meditation can satisfy each of these desires.
Meditation helps us to experience the unlimited nature of our minds, which is only possible
when we become free of uncontrolled mental chatter. In the process of freeing ourselves from
inner noise, we come to understand more deeply the relationship between our conscious mind
and unconscious mind. It becomes easier to control our emotions and our intuitive capacity is
enhanced. A quiet mind brings improved levels of contentment, concentration, creativity and
communication. These, in turn, are the foundations of both our personal well- being and our
harmonious relationships with others.
The deepest impact of meditation is on our spiritual growth. Beyond the surface definitions
which we tend to give ourselves and others, we are essentially spiritual beings. Meditation
reconnects us with our true spirituality, resulting in deep inner peace, increased personal power
and a clearer sense of purpose.
The Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University encourages self development through
