The Five Steps of Meditation
In the beginning, meditation is just a relaxation.
In the second step, meditation is something that gives you energy; you feel more energetic.
In the third step, meditation brings creativity.
In the fourth step, mediation brings enthusiasm and joy.
The fifth step of meditation is indescribable, you simply can’t describe it. It is that oneness with the whole universe. This is the fifth step of meditation, and don’t stop before that.
~ Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
