I was always the happy go lucky kinds, always smiling and laughing. I would be around people but go into my space even as a child, as if looking for something. My thirst for inner happiness began when I started rebelling against the societal norms, against what I was taught as a young Indian girl. I found shelter in reading self-help books after classes, books gave me solace. Until I came across Heartfulness Meditation as a beautiful chance of destiny. It was August 2015, I was happy, totally sorted in life, working as a law professor but my heart kept egging along. I had finished reading Many lives, many masters which left me wondering.
The first introductory meditation was like home coming, no talk, no show; just plain experience that left me in tears for unknown reasons. This led to series of meeting with my trainers and getting into a routine of meditating every morning. Life has changed a lot no doubt, but the only constant has been my daily practice of Heartfulness meditation. It keeps me centred and grounded, it is the best addiction I have. While I continue to remain the always smiling always laughing, I have an anchor to fall back upon. In my job interview, I was asked what is the difference between religion and spirituality and I think I answered well because I got the job, the best job so far.
