     Life is a journey of expanding our consciousness. As I review my life voyage, I see myself going beyond my self- restricted  boundaries. I create my own suffering by getting attached to my craving for outer things. Recognizing the cause of suffering has helped me to mature and go beyond such a restricted way of thinking and living. Non-judgmental awareness of my own self-created bondage has been helping me to liberate myself from such bondage. There are times when I feel free from my egoic mind and feel deeply connected with the flow of life. These are the moments of pure love in which the dividing line between me and nature and other human beings gets dissolved. It is an oceanic feeling.

    Practicing meditation everyday has facilitated the process of knowing myself and expanding my consciousness. It is a unified sky-like state of consciousness. It is a state of pure love, unbound freedom and filled with blissful joy.
    May we be aware of our self-created boundaries and move in the direction of expanding our consciousness.
