People turn to meditation because they want to make good decisions, break bad habits & bounce back better from disappointments.
It doesn’t matter how long we may have been stuck in a sense of our limitations. If we go into a darkened room and turn on the light, it doesn’t matter if the room has been dark for a day, a week, or ten thousand years — we turn on the light and it is illuminated. Once we control our capacity for love and happiness, the light has been turned on.
On of the best things about life is that it can change every day.
In fact, it can and does change every minute, every second, every moment! And therefore every moment is a moment to develop, a moment for growth.
People can run a boring life for years, they can be depressed for half their lifetime, it won’t change the fact that they can be happy right at this moment. Happiness does not need time for preparation, it is more like a switch that can be flipped on and off.
Also remember that this switch is not flipped by your goddamn environment, friends, family, job, car, house or whatevery, but only by yourself! 🙂
