Birth, Sickness, Aging, Death and Meditation with Aruni Marapane
Meditation is one of greatest art of life, perhaps the greatest. One can possibly learn from one self, that is the beauty of it. It’s about observing yourself, you learn about your own self, how mind and body is interactive and interdependent. With correct mindfulness you can meditate, in any situation you are in all day long.
Meditation is for me is like a huge “umbrella”. It covers a vast area in every aspect of life, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. You can take this “umbrella” to protect you from any kind of weather. Its flexible, adaptable, adoptable yet a beautiful aid which gives shelter, security, comfort, clear comprehension and wisdom. As I see, we are all seekers. Through out our lives we all seek some thing in our lives mental or otherwise. The four questions I always ask are,
What is meditation?
Why we want meditate?
What is the use if meditation?
Where does it gets you?
So, with so much love and compassion in my heart, I would like to invite you to have a journey with me together, have an open discussion, investigation, inquiry to look in to universal divine qualities such as loving kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity. By doing so let’s look at our human conditioning birth, decay or aging, sickness and death constructively and objectively. And how we can mindfully observe, self-investigating, taking personal responsibility of our lives, turn these very real human aspects in to peaceful, joyful states which benefits our selves and others around us.
