Live the life of nature's flow with the mind of the Universe

My Mind Was Like a Trash Can​

Ritesh A.

I was born in New Delhi, India, to a devout Hindu family. I grew up with a very conservative and strict father who would anger me frequently, but I learned to repress my feelings at a young age. When I was 21 years old, I immigrated to the United States. When I arrived, I had a rough time transitioning from life in India because of racial discrimination and cultural differences.

Although I had repressed my feelings for many years, the massive amount of resentment and anger that I felt could no longer be contained. I inevitably misdirected my negativity towards my husband and my child.
This negative mindset was not how I wanted to live, but I could not find an escape. It was only after I came across a book written by teacher Woo Myung and started this meditation practice that I learned a deep and dark secret. I learned that my mind was just like a trash can that collects all sorts of garbage ‘minds.’

When I realized that, I felt as if I had come back to life.

I had practiced other meditation styles in my life, but no other method helped me to change. Instead of focusing on the “Chakras” in my body, I was able to see the root of my negative mind, pick up all that garbage, and completely remove it. This was the escape. It was exactly what I was looking for. With time, I felt free and I saw myself changing every day.

As I meditated more, I felt sorry for my family. I felt sorry that I caused them stress and pain, so I introduced this meditation to all of them. My entire family now meditates with me. We live every day with happiness and gratitude.

This meditation is an incredible study of the mind. Everyone should start this meditation and see for themselves. It is an amazing practice and it will truly change your mind.
