Committing yourself to the practice of meditation brings a sense of reality, that the practice is no longer a myth. It’s a real experience. And having become part of your lifestyle, the practice acts as a reminder, a way of looking at your heavy-handed thoughts, which are known as emotions. A complete new world, a new old world, of meditative life could be established. There is so much joy that goes with that, the joy of being connected with the earth.
