Spiritual enlightenment course for the ultimate yogi
There is some great research on the effects of meditation, particularly Mindful meditation on compassion. The study quoted below reveals that even after a few months of meditation the participants in a double blind study showed much greater compassion to those suffering around them. Imagine what some years of the practice can do? I highly recommend that you take the time to read this story. I think you will find it intersting.
As you know if you have been reading this blog, for me spiritual enlightenment is the ultimate expression of compassion and in that enlightened state all that emanates is various forms of bliss, joy and compassion. Here is the reference here:
Our research suggests that mindfulness’s most profound benefit may not be the one that’s most often touted—adapting to a stressful, competitive, even unkind 24/7 world. Instead, meditation might fundamentally alter how we treat those around us. Corporations, physicians, and policy-makers who now push mindfulness as a technique for self-enhancement and physical wellbeing would do well to focus more on its potential for preventing everything from bullying to domestic violence to callousness and indifference.

Researchers confirm what the ancients intuited – psychologist David DeSteno, director of Northeastern University’s Social Emotions Lab, reports on his team’s study in which mindfulness meditation increased compassion threefold.

De Steno has previously studied the psychology of trust and the osmosis of good and evil in each of us.

I am also adding in a video here on a new course that I have developed. I think it is amazing and would love for the whole world to take it.
