Meditation


What is meditation? Have you thought about it?
Closing eyes and concentrating on one thing make
One forget oneself which is what meditation is all!
Making one forget oneself is the work of mediation!

Book reading makes one forget oneself against all odds;
Mingling one with Nature also makes one forget oneself;
Mingling one with the tune of music also makes one so;
Dancing to the tune of music produces that effect too!

They are all other forms of meditation indeed......!
Poetry writing too makes one forget oneself of all ills;
Music too cures many maladies and rejuvenates spirit;
Interesting job, whatever it is, is surely a meditative work!

The best way to overcome stress and depression in life
Surely is a meditative kind of work just as philosophers do!

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
