We meditate to find and listen to our heart.This strikes me as an excellent description of the value of meditation for grown-ups too.
Our heart is the real home of us. When we can listen to our heart, we automatically feel love and joy, but also we will know what we can be.
Do you ever get sad? Do you sometimes worry too much over silly things? Do you get angry and lose your temper? What would you say, if I was to tell you that meditation will help you become the happiest person in the world? Would you be willing to try it for the next 10 days for at least 5 minutes?
It isn't a trick. In 10 days you will see the change in yourself.
You will see that the happiest people in the world are people that know and understand their hearts, and the most confused and sad people are those that don't.
If you are not sure, take the time to look around and see for yourself. People that know their heart will be more loving and happy. Sad, angry people are lost, because they have lost their heart.
