helps to move us in the direction of a higher state of consciousness
in which we experience the freedom of our being, which allows
us to free others. After meditating in a transcending experience
we often come back not to take from others or try to change
them but to share in our new found realizations. For if we
are fulfilled as human beings that allows us to become more
fully involved with others. From the cosmic perspective we
can see that we are free souls. From a detached point of view
we are able to understand the relativity of problems before
us. Once We get a broad prespective, the best solution to
the problem most always come to us. The process of meditation
oftentimes attunes us to the divine guidance that we need.
Once we see the problems from a cosmic perspective we still
have to work them out in a concrete way on the physical plane.
The message that yoga gives us is not to detach away from
every problem that we encounter and let these problems work
out by themselves. The challenges of life have to met in a
direct conscious way. However, while we are on the physical
plane we will not see the whole picture. Therefore it is helpful
to let go of our limited view which is limited by physical
boundaries, and get a broader view in deep meditation. Our
challenge is then to return and meet our life s mysteries
in the most honest and sincere way.
