An inspiring call to face and embrace the challenges before us, to create a field of love to surround our planet, to meditate, to awaken: “We can create love on this earth – all you have to do is look within.”
And unless something transforms you it is not meditation: something that makes you a new being, a new man, a new consciousness; which knows no fear, which knows no greed, which knows no hate; which knows nothing of those dark emotions, sentiments – ugly, sick, nauseating … a new consciousness, which knows only that which uplifts you, that which goes on uplifting you – there is no end to it.
Meditation brings you to a state where you are above the stars, bigger than the whole universe. That experience is what I call transformation, illumination, enlightenment.
