In the practice of meditation, we do not dwell on thoughts but allow them to pass through our consciousness. When an upsetting thought pops in, rather than stopping and poring over it, we recognize it and allow it to flow out of the mind. This management of thought brings a general state of calmness and serenity.
3. Emotional Balance
Meditation transforms the level of consciousness, allowing us to let go of ego and any unpleasant emotion arising from its exercise. The result is balance and a greater ability to handle the emotions we feel, applying them in a more direct and appropriate way.
