Bring back dimension of feeling
Life has five dimensions or five senses sight, sound, smell, taste and touch. But there is one more dimension that has gone out of our reckoning feeling i.e., feeling the presence.
Life has five dimensions or five senses sight, sound, smell, taste and touch. But there is one more dimension that has gone out of our reckoning feeling i.e., feeling the presence. Light cannot be heard through eyes; it has to be seen through the eyes. Sound cannot be seen through the eyes but heard through the ears. Likewise, the divine presence has to be felt by the heart.
God is not an object of senses but the feeling of feelings, the presence of presence, the sound of silence, the light of life, the essence of the world and the taste of bliss. And our human life is enriched only when we can live this sixth sense of existence, of feeling.
If you are feeling depressed and continue to feel depressed, you create particles of depression around you. Those ions of depressions around you go and stick to the environment. If someone walks into that place, even after you have left, that person for no reason would start feeling depressed. Have you experienced this? You walk into a room and suddenly feel angry vibes. You were all right a few minutes ago but the moment you walk in, all the anger, stress and tension overtake you.
We hear a lot about other things in life but we spend very little time to hear about ourselves. How to handle our mind? How to be in the present moment? How to be happy and grateful? This we have not learnt. This is the most unfortunate thing. Then what is the solution? This is where we miss a very fundamental principle that governs our environment, our mind our emotions and our life in general.

Our body has the capacity to sustain the vibrations of bliss and peace much longer than negative emotions because positivity is the centre of our existence. Just like in the structure of the atom, protons and neutrons are the centre of the atom and electrons are only the periphery, same is with our lives. The centre core of our existence is bliss, positivity and joy but it is surrounded by a cloud of negative ions. With the help of breath, we can easily get over our negative emotions in a short period of time. Through meditation and certain breathing techniques you can clear this negative cloud.
In future, there will be a rule: anybody who feels depressed will be fined! Ten thousand rupees fine for getting depressed! Then you will be asked to go and breathe and meditate and get rid of all your depression without swallowing any tablets. What is there for you to get depressed? You are here for a few years anyway; just a few years on this planet. And as long as you are here, you can as well be happy.
This life has so much to offer to you. You can see this once you take some time off, rejuvenating the soul. You soul is hungry for a smile from you. If you could give this, you feel energised the whole year and nothing whatsoever can take the smile from you. Take some time off to look a little deep into oneself and calm the mind down. Erase all impressions that we are carrying in our minds and experience the presence, the divine that is the very core of our existence. This is feeling the presence. (Follow @SriSri on Twitter)
