    Light Sleeper

    Category:  Ask Deepak

    Question:

    Hello Deepak, I'm always laughing and it comes out naturally even if I don't want to. But there's something in me that doesn't allow me to be comfortable with myself, like feeling internal peace. I'm a light sleeper always aware and very sensitive to sound. When I sleep any strong smell coming from my neighbor’s apartment wakes me up. What can I do to feel peace and not to be afraid while I sleep. Thank you so much for your help.

    Maintaining Lightness of Being

    Category:  Ask Deepak

    Question:

    Dear Deepak, I started meditating about a year back. I follow your blogs, videos, fb page and have also gone through the 21 day meditation challenge for health and well being. Your guidance has helped me in many ways and I am so grateful for your guidance. When I meditate, I do feel a lightness of being and sometimes when I open my eyes...I am smiling. It is beautiful. I have two questions for you. My first question is, how can I maintain that calm meditative state all throughout the day. That lightness of being feels so beautiful but once I go about my daily routine, I become...human again. Is it possible to stay in that state through the day?

    My second question is about my personal life. After many years, I opened my heart to love. I have been communicating with a close friend for 6 years and last year, our friendship blossomed into love. He has many issues though. He is clinically depressed, he is in a bad marriage and sometimes it almost feels like the weight of the whole world is on his shoulders. I try to help him, I have introduced him to meditation, encourage him to read your books and he tries. He wants to leave his wife but then he feels responsible for her (even though she has been a toxic influence in his life), he is stressed at work, he is stressed about his finances, he sleeps through his weekends and it seems like there is no end to the problems. Recently he told me that in a way, he is afraid to cure his depression because once his melancholy us gone, it might change his core. He might become a person he does not recognize!! Deepak, in a way this love is weighing me down and it seems like he does not want to cure his disease. How can I use meditation to help me out of this? I have been in love with him but I need help to come out of this but am I being selfish by thinking about walking away? I would like to find strength and the stillness within me to see clearly... Thank you so much,

    Integrating the Shadow

    Category:  Ask Deepak

    Question:

    What does one have to do in life in order to grow and integrate the shadow and the ego because this ultimately makes one stronger? What causes the process of growth to occur? Does it happen with age or do we have to take action to confront our fears?

    Bliss in Meditation

    Category:  Ask Deepak

    Question:

    I hear people talk about the bliss felt in meditation, and even you said in day 22 of free to love that "I trust you've felt the incredible bliss of forging your path to love" but in meditation I don't know such bliss. And besides I thought that our true self is non-dual which means there is no experience and to tap into that stillness means pretty much like going into the deep sleep state. You can't tell the difference between being in the gap and falling asleep because there's only awareness after you come out. So where is this bliss? ,I've heard advaita teachers say that the bliss is the reality of no pleasure and no pain. But nothing doesn't equate to bliss with me. Could you help me understand ananda, explain a little more about bliss?

    Response:

    Ananda, or bliss is declared to be an essential aspect of reality or Brahman, along with consciousness and existence (Sat-Chit-Ananda). But that pure non-dual state of Brahman is, as you point out, not an experience in the common sense of the word. It is pure consciousness aware of itself. However, as individual mind transitions into that universal state, it briefly touches, as it were, that non-dual reality, and in that contact it experiences bliss or ananda. This is why Lord Krishna says in the Bhagavad Gita, brahma samsparsham atyantam sukham- contact with Brahman is infinite joy.

    Love,
    Deepak
