Although by the time most people find meditation they have long since forgotten that connected place that was once experienced early in childhood, it doesn’t make that sense of connectedness any less powerful. As individuals grow, however, without a solid commitment to cultivate their own internal space of connectedness, unfortunately, many walk around in their lives feeling lost and confused.
Vikas Chawla reflects upon this lost connectedness in her recent article on how meditation can be used to rekindle this vital human need. According to Chawla, our nervous system coupled with stress and ignorance is what causes rifts and unhealthy boundaries. That said, through meditation a person can reconnect to a sense of connectedness with humanity that is the right of every person.
I have been very fortunate to have studied directly under my guru, His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, who has taught me how to meditate and more importantly the human values of caring and sharing. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is a renowned spiritual leader and global humanitarian whose mission of uniting the world into a violence-free, stress-free global family has inspired millions of people to broaden their share of responsibility and serve society. Sri Sri has devised practical tools and techniques that help individuals achieve calmness of mind and clarity of thought. Such a state of mind empowers individuals not only to achieve their goals, but also instills a sense of service and greater connectedness with humanity.
