Question: How to meditate? Whenever I try to meditate, I get stuck with thoughts, relevant and irrelevant.
Acharya Prashant: Meditation is a huge myth!
Given what you are, you will continue doing what you are, even when you are ‘meditating’. Your act of meditation will be as per what you are, because you are the one who decided to meditate. Meditation is your decision, so you are bigger than meditation. Even in the act of meditation, you will continue to be. You will continue to be, and the same patterns that exist otherwise, will exist, may be in changed forms, but will exist even during the process of meditation.
