The term personality comes from the Latin word “persona”, and originally referred to a theatrical mask. Our personality, therefore, is a mask we wear over our true, inner selves. When we meditate, we drop this mask and we become our true selves.
Meditation is a state of deep rest and alertness at the same time. It is a practice that calms the mind and allows you to get in touch with your true Self. We get so caught up in the complexities of our busy lives that we become distanced from our true nature. Every human has a limitless ocean of joy within. Love is present at the very core of our being. Love is our very nature, and meditation, the age-old practice of calming the mind, is the way to repose in our true Self. It is the unbounded joy and peace that are experienced by meditating, by sitting still with ourselves for a few minutes.
We can all use a little more balance in our lives, and meditation is known to be an effective way to center oneself and promote well-being. It is the need of the hour to relieve our mind of negativity, and to shake ourselves free of stress and tension. In the olden days, meditation was used to find enlightenment. Today, meditation is seen as an effective remedy to deal with the stresses of daily life, and to address the conflict in our minds and in society too.
Apart from the several benefits of meditation, here’s how meditation can help you blossom your personality and develop into a well-grounded and sensitive yet sensible human being.
