Why Meditate?

Why Meditate? | Share Some Love Today | Scoop.it

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.

Meditation Is

Being At Peace With What Is

And

Transcending What IS

If humans evolved from apes, why do apes still exist?

If humans evolved from apes, why do apes still exist? | Share Some Love Today | Scoop.it

The fundamental issue with this question is that there is an assumption that humans evolved from apes - but this is not the case. The simple answer is that humans did not evolve from apes: both apes, humans, and other primates evolved from a common ancestor. The common ancestor was probably more similar to apes than humans in terms of appearance. It is estimated that this lineage branched apart 8 million years ago - one branch leading to homonids (human-like), and the other branch leading to apes. This estimate varies - some arguing the split was as close as 5 million years ago, others that it was as distant as 20 million years ago.
