A student, age 43 with 3 children, has been meditating for about 7 months. Her meditation program is 60 minutes in length, twice a day. She has Atmavedi Meditation, the Ananda Technique, the first 12 Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and the Esoteric Mahamantra. This morning we had the following exchange:
"During meditation today the whole world collapsed! My head is in chaos! I saw my physical life as an idea in deep silence. Life all of a sudden lost its meaning, and my mind experienced total collapse!"
"This is an excellent experience! You experienced your life from your subtle mind. This experience can be very confusing at first. "
"I felt sadness and anger! Now it is gone, but it came to me during meditation."
"Yes, that was caused by leaving ego behind. It is the source of sadness and anger, and you have witnessed the ego from a higher perspective. You must release control of the physical body and the physical mind . This is a very important step to achieve Moksha, where you realize that everything is in the mind of the Creator."
