Some Common Errors in Meditation and the Right Solution

Saint and the Common Man

It is really surprising that some people consider themselves to be too weak for spiritual practice, while actually they are not so. An ordinary man has within him the same power and the same soul-force that a saint has.

The only difference between them is that the sage has torn off the coverings round his soul while the others are just like a silkworm in the cocoon.

And if one resolves firmly to throw off these coverings no power on earth can stop him. What is required for spiritual growth of man is only an iron will. When it is there, the goal is just in sight. If we have these two things there can be absolutely no chance of failure.

Mind and Meditation

The concept regarding mind is understood in many different ways by many cultural and religious traditions. There is no fixed definition of mind and about its distinguishing properties. It is a non-tangible part of human body that thinks, feels, and choose. 

The mind is the faculty of man's reasoning and thoughts. It has the power of imagination, recognition, estimate, and process the feelings and emotions. 
Our mind determines the actions of the body. Also the mind being constantly active creates within us liking for the one and dislike for the other, introducing the two extremities of a thing. Thus miseries come into existence. 

This is all the creation of the human mind which results from our ignorance of the right relationship of things. Our passions, emotions and impulses too contribute a good deal in aggregating the troubles and at times cause fierce tempest strong enough to threaten a complete wreck. We generally attribute its causes to circumstances. But it is a wrong notion.
