Thought Bite: What Are You Doing with Your Time in Isolation?

“Modern man has a problem. He always complains about time. ‘I don’t have time.’ You don’t need so much time. You have time to go to bathroom for your ablutions. You have time to eat. You have time to gossip. You have time to talk. You have time to cry, laugh, and do many things. How come you don’t have time to sit in meditation? It’s a dire necessity. Meditate, meditate, meditate.” Swami Rama, from this video.

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought a new situation to most people: suddenly being stuck at home, in isolation, with more time on our hands than usual. There are so many things to do, such as resting, gardening, cleaning the house, reading, catching up on movies on TV, and so much else. There is something else that could use some time too: meditation. Doing so would have double-benefit of making good use of the time and also deepening one’s connection with oneself. Take it from Swami Rama, meditation is a dire necessity.
