In a world that has gone topsy-turvy and where tension has reached a tipping point, we have to learn to master our own inner lives. So much energy is invested in changing political and social insanity and so little is used to change the one person we can really change, that being our self. The craft of meditation teaches us to balance our inner lives, open our hearts, live with a quiet mind, and embrace the world with compassion. It’s almost impossible to do this unless we master inner chaos and transform our tension into positive energy.
