Meditation awakens the realization that you, the real you, are not the body and mind, and that in reality you are consciousness, which is part of the Indivisible Supreme Consciousness.
Now, you would probably ask, “So what? How is this realization going to help me in coping with stress, anxiety and the problems of day-to-day life?”
This kind of realization is not just mental understanding, but something much deeper, which can affect your whole life. This realization brings of sense of inner peace and happiness, which you carry with you always, wherever you are. This inner peace will help you cope with every situation you encounter, at work, at home and in relationships.
This realization brings a major change in the way one perceives the world and in the way one acts and reacts. It brings a positive change in our perspective, more patience, tolerance and discipline. Obstacles, problems, circumstances and events do not impinge on our moods anymore, and we become able to manifest calmness and balance in our lives. We might listen and learn from criticism and what people think or say about us, but our minds and moods will not be negatively affected.
