Meditation lies not in sitting in one posture

Meditation lies not in sitting in one posture to sort out your problems. It lies in getting into the problem and finding a solution. The more problems you overcome, the more you meditate.

What is meditation? Clearing your thoughts. How do you clear them? By pushing them out with new thoughts. How do you get new thoughts? By living life to the fullest. How do you live life to the fullest? By living on the edge. What is living on the edge? It is the ability to switch between relaxation and alertness in a split second. Is that possible? Yes, but difficult. If you can stretch your body and yawn while sleeping on a one foot wide plank, which is swinging at a great height from the floor, you can do it. Or like a cowboy making love with a gun tied to his hips, with enemies all around. That’s living life on the edge.

Let’s defy space and time to make enjoyable moments last forever.

When we have all the time in the world, we spend it with our dear ones. Yet this time is never enough. Enjoyable moments may be fleeting, but if we internalise them, they are forever. Because the memory of an incident is dearer than the moment itself. Most of us are heartless and have little space for anyone else. But when we drive away the attachment, our heart suddenly has infinite space to encompass the entire world. If we internalise space and time, we will find ourselves limitless, boundless and timeless.
