The Joy of Meditation


When you sit in the silence of deep meditation, joy bubbles up from within, roused by no other stimulus. The joy of meditation is overwhelming.
~Paramahansa Yogananda

Meditation brings many levels of benefits. When we begin meditating, we learn to become more aware of the the contents of our mind. We watch unhelpful thoughts or emotions arise and fall away. As we persist, we find a new kind of rest in meditation as thoughts are stilled. Beyond thought we discover that our underlying inner state is joy. We find that we can touch up on this during normal activity with just one conscious breath. Persist in your meditation practice and discover that your own nature is joy itself.
