The world is indeed a mixture of truth and make-believe. Discard the make-believe and take the truth. — Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa
Ramakrishna: His Life and Sayings
Have you ever felt like you are progressing inch by inch but in the right direction? Measuring progress is sometimes hard. I know that I am making a lot of progress and my mindset is going for a complete makeover. However, it is ironic that I am a little obsessed about it and it defeats the whole purpose of meditation. Meditation is all about letting go. I think I am getting attached to it in a way that its always on the back of my mind until I finally complete it for the day. It has become my vacation on any given day.
I had a peaceful session and still am not sure why I feel sleepy sometimes even when I had a good night of sleep. I will have to research more on it tonight to see if there is any significant reason.
One of the best parts about meditation is the relaxation I get during and post the session. I just feel as refreshed as I do after a good night’s sleep. I know I have to be patient about going deeper into the sub conscious and I am willing to put in as much effort as is necessary.
Today’s tip : Be unattached while doing the work. The moment you derive your validation from a result, you become dependent on external source for your happiness. Give it your best and let it go. I know this is very hard to do but that is how you progress more.
