"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them." Albert Einstein
This quote from Albert Einstein beautifully expresses the cognition of the Ancient Vedic Rishis (See’ers) - that all problems are based in a lack of consciousness.
If a man has 2% vision then crossing a road is an enormous problem. When we analyse this, it is clear that the problem isn't the road but rather the man's lack of vision. Trying to solve problems by manipulating the elements of the problem (in this case - the road, the cars, the people on the road etc.) is not the solution. The solution is to add a second element - Consciousness.
We need to expand consciousness. In the above example, if we could give the man more vision then crossing a road would become less and less of a problem and with 100% vision it wouldn't be a problem at all.
In our example vision is an analogy for consciousness.
In unconscious (stressed) states, we experience a disorderly world full of suffering and neediness. In this state of mind, we attempt to control other people, places, and things.
As we upgrade our own state of consciousness, we experience a shift in the world around us. Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.
If you would like to shift your experience of life, you need to shift the one who is experiencing it: YOU.
Our meditation technique is not only a profound system for releasing stress but also a supreme tool for the expansion of consciousness.
