Meditation has been around for almost as long as human history. At its core, meditation is a technique that helps us quiet our minds. Throughout the day everyone of us have millions of thoughts that clutter our minds. This mind chatter or a constant commentary on life keeps us distracted and way from living in the present moment.
Love, when it is able to fully manifest, when one is freely loving towards anyone other than oneself, and when that love is present without fear, attachments and expectations - without all the other things that often get mixed in with love; if you can simply act upon that love in small and large ways (whatever way you can).. then when you look at that state of mind at that very moment, that state of mind is the happiest state you have ever experienced.
If we can love, without hindrance, and act upon it with out mixing in all the other things we do out of attachment and confusion, we feel so free, so happy; we are able to blossom in our own heart.
