Why Meditate?

Why Meditate? | Share Some Love Today |

French monk (and former scientist in cell genetics) Matthieu Ricard speaks about science, meditation, and his title as 'the happiest man in the world.'


"By activating some areas of the brain, you could possibly generate a sensation of intense pleasure for a while, but that’s not going to last forever. That’s definitely not happiness. It is just a temporary gimmick. Genuine happiness is a state related to wisdom, to being attuned to reality, and to freedom from mental toxins (hatred, craving, and the like). Pleasure by itself has no reason to engender freedom from ignorance, dualistic clinging, and distortion of reality (true causes of suffering). There is nothing wrong with pleasure in itself, but it does not have much to do with happiness."

True, very true. Indian Doctrines says one to go beyond body, mind and soul (incarnated) and be the REAL SELF. As one progresses i this path, one experiences constant bliss and deep peace throughout the day. By meditating, one can be neutral and free from any bondage.

Being At Peace With What Is


Transcending What IS

Researchers at Harvard, Yale, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have found the first evidence that meditation can alter the physical structure of our brains. Brain scans they conducted reveal that experienced meditators boasted increased thickness in parts of the brain that deal with attention and processing sensory input.

The Brain on Love

The Brain on Love | Share Some Love Today |

A RELATIVELY new field, called interpersonal neurobiology, draws its vigor from one of the great discoveries of our era: that the brain is constantly rewiring itself based on daily life. In the end, what we pay the most attention to defines us. How you choose to spend the irreplaceable hours of your life literally transforms you.


All relationships change the brain — but most important are the intimate bonds that foster or fail us, altering the delicate circuits that shape memories, emotions and that ultimate souvenir, the self.
