There’s much talk about mental health today, and that’s very positive as previously most people were just scared of the mention of mental health problems.

My take on this is that the stresses of modern-day life have caught up with us.  We can no longer escape the pressure, and it is directly affecting each and everyone one of us.

Here in my hometown of London, UK, the average working week is 2-3 hours greater than European workers, plus we have some of the most extended commuting times in the world to get to our jobs ranging from 45-150 minutes.  That’s evidence that we have less free or leisure time.  Add the responsibilities of being a householder with a family, or a carer – and already you can see that there is immense pressure to balance life successfully.   And, the truth is – most people do not!

Being out of balance by struggling to meet the demands of a busy lifestyle is the first stage to a declining mental state where our mind is never at peace because of external and internal pressure to keep everything in balance.

As you may have heard me say previously or in another lecture (Satsang), the precursor to stress is fear.

If you analyse your stress objectively, you will see that you fear something. Generally, that feeling is of some form of loss, loss of someone or something, of face, or confidence to do something, or inability to perform a task or responsibility.

Stress produces negative energies which are denser than positive energies which are finer, and it depresses our self-esteem, which leads to depression.  That heavy, dense negativity pushed us downwards. That feeling of heaviness is something we’ve all experienced at some point in our lives.

If we are subjected to long periods of unresolvable stress, this will affect our mental health.  However, we want to halt the downward spiral while it is still within our control.

Meditation is very successful in improving our mental health as it deals directly with our number one enemy – stress!

Regular practice reduces our stress levels significantly.  Strength resides at the deeper regions of the mind where we journey during meditation.

As we meditate, we neutralise those negative thoughts and emotions that have built up over time, and the mind cannot be a vacuum, so these are replaced with positive ones.

The whole structure of our mind changes giving us calm, clarity and strength. Through this process, our emotions are quietened, and we feel more stable with fewer mood swings.  The clouds of the mind disperse, and some sunshine from the superconscious self begins to peep through.  We have new bursts of happiness that increase over time. We feel everything in our lives is in better balance and this will be evident with greater harmony in relationships, at work and within ourselves.

I promise you, meditation is so simple to do and is a drug-free way to gaining back balanced mental health.

It’s easy – let me show you how….

  • The Festival of Holi helps to bring the society together and strengthen the secular fabric of India and Indian communities around the world. The festival is celebrated by non-Hindus also as everybody likes to be a part of such a colourful and joyous festival.

    Also, the tradition of the Holi is that even the enemies turn friends on Holi and we forget any feeling of hardship or resentment that may be present. Besides, on this day people do not differentiate between the rich and poor and everybody celebrates the festival together with a spirit of bonhomie and brotherhood.

    In the evening people visit friends and relatives and exchange gifts, sweets and greetings. This helps in revitalising relationships and strengthening emotional bonds between people.

    Have a holi day!

    Loneliness is a mental state and is not the same as being alone.

    Even if you are in a crowd of people, you can still feel lonely, but you are not alone as you are in a crowded room. What you are experiencing is separation, which can be an imbalance between introversion and extroversion.

    There are different forms of loneliness from missing a partner, difficulty with friends or social circles because you do not have a partner or “I’m different”, so I do not fit in or something along these lines.

    Loneliness is very much connected with happiness which is a mental state that we have been conditioned to experience based on the values of the society in which we live. At this level, happiness has an opposite – unhappiness and is it also possible to experience both at the same moment. Therefore, this shows it is a temporary state at the mercy of exterior influences - the ups and downs of life.
    Our society tells us that happiness is being rich monetarily, to own luxurious possessions, and is based on material accumulation or wealth but we know that neither of these can give us permanent happiness.

    Through loneliness, why do we feel separate from others or society – it could be that we have lost touch with others because of our past experiences and our hurts, disappointments or insecurities.

    Furthermore, the reality is that we have lost communication with who we are. Lonely people often wrongly assume they have nothing to contribute, their opinions do not count, and they have nothing to share. Of course, this is so wrong and is just because of insecurity.

    We have become introvert – and this is a very lonely place to be as our communication abilities with others diminishes. So, even though we are in the same room, we feel alone or detached and have become introvert.

    So, first, we have to return to greater security and stability that can be done quickly with meditation. Meditation is perfect for allowing us to be re-connected with our self first, and then with the world around us including its inhabitants.

    Did you know that meditators can easily deflect negative thoughts and emotions because their minds have greater strength - an attribute of spiritual unfoldment.
    When we feel unhappy with ourselves and feel a failure or negative things are happening to us or around us, we shun good things by default.

    Once we feel sorry for ourselves, lose our confidence, or feel self-critical, we find it hard to associate with anything good or positive. Our negative thoughts attract more negative situations, and that’s why a succession of adverse events occur as we have attracted them.

    All the good things in our life we neglect or push away, like meditating - the practice that can help us most when times are difficult, restore the positive, create balance, make us feel good about ourselves again - and more so, to be objective to what’s happening around us.

    If we are caught in this scenario, let’s remind ourselves of all that’s good in our lives, bring it to the fore of our mind, and if those negative thoughts or emotions arise in our head, try to observe them objectively not giving them the attention they demand.

    Through meditation, we can deflect negative thoughts and emotions with ease from our minds – push them away. Over a period of meditation, those thoughts will be naturally refined and will become less bothersome.

    Accentuate the good, the positive - diminish the negative!
