I see most people spend their life impressing others, or even go into depression because of others. Are we here to live our life through the eyes of others? It is a kind of slavery. Meditation gives you your birthright back to live consciously and conscientiously. It helps you see your self with unbiased clarity. So that you realise that true happiness comes out of your ability to live life with freedom, in your own right, and not depend on anything or anyone for happiness and peace of mind. That is true enlightenment!
Love and light!
