Question from Ashley: I am new to meditation and find that, when I begin to sit, instead of being able to embrace the stillness I am flooded with emotion and cry. I have such unresolved grief and sadness that being in the present moment is next to impossible. Any suggestions?
Emotions are disturbed feelings. “Positive and negative emotions alternate constantly; we have to go beyond emotions”, says Swami Kriyananda. To go beyond emotions, concentrate the feeling in the heart, then direct it to the brain. Give up your suffering to God and you will find you can endure anything.
