In this information age, we have an overflow of knowledge. Do we pause and check the quality of the information we are consuming?
Does it matter or can we listen, read and watch everything that is fed to us? How do I learn to discern, what information is to be fed to my mind? How do I empower my mind? How can I master my mind?
Like food is a vital part of our body, meditation is the food for the mind.

Cycle of destiny
Every piece of information we consume becomes the source of our thoughts. Our every thought is followed by a feeling. Feelings over a period of time develop our attitude. Attitude comes out into action. Any action done repeatedly becomes a habit. All our habits put together is our personality. Our personality radiates energy and as will be the energy we send out, so will be the energy we receive according to the law of karma, which becomes our destiny.
Let us be aware of this inner process and see the impact of our thoughts on our destiny and the influence of information on our thoughts. Simple formula Thoughts = Destiny.
Let share a simple story from my life, when I did not reach home in time from school. Normal time to reach home was about 3.30 pm in the afternoon. On that fateful winter day in 1963, no one heard from me nor talked about my whereabouts till around 8 pm. See how my father reacted to everyone he knew, “My son Pratap has not reached home and no phone call…check?” Aren’t these thoughts of worry, anxiety and mishap natural?
You have worked very hard on an assignment and you get criticism in return … are thoughts of hurt natural? You expect someone to behave in a particular way and they just do not seem to understand … are thoughts of irritation and anger natural? We live in a world where uncomfortable emotions like stress, anger, rejection, hurt, jealousy, resentment are being called natural. This chain of emotions means we are creating a disturbed mind, diseased body and conflicting relationships.
Who will change them? How can we change them?
