     When we relate to the world, people and nature, by the separating and isolating egotistic mind, our life container is very small and shallow.Our pleasures are short lived and we go through the cycle of pleasure and pain. When we I realize that this way of living has no deep meaning and purpose, We wake up, we awaken. We realize the futility of chasing the shadow.The challenge is to to stay the course of awakening.

    The daily practice of mindfulness meditation has helped me to work on my self by becoming aware of my bodily sensations, ego generated thoughts, feelings and emotions  and to be free from their grip, I experience the expansion of my container. My relationship with myself becomes happy and contented and my connectedness with others gets richer and deeper. I feel more alive, loving and loved, more compassionate and understanding and more happy.

    I am grateful to the teachers who have shown this way of living by living this way, by walking their talk.I am also happy to see more people  moving in this direction.
