The Effectiveness Of Meditation

That two and half hours that you invest every day, this will work for a long time, for thousands of years, because the time you enter eternity during your meditation, time stops. It's not only two and half hours. It's thousands of years, eons of evolution, of development. You enter a different time and space zone. Like this you're recharged and you come back renewed. So you don't have to keep coming back another lifetime to be renewed, or to be yourself, because for every one of us to be born, the purpose is to learn to know yourself again. That's all. If we don't do it this lifetime we have to do it next lifetime and the next and the next. So if we have time now, two and half hours, we do it every day. That means already we're doing it for millions of years. Each two and a half hours you put in, do not think it's only two and a half hours and do not think it's too much. Each minute you put in represents a lifetime. Because in eternity there's no such thing as two and a half hours, or one minute. It's always eternity. We're only counting time because when we're trapped in time then we know it's time. Once we're out of the time, there's no time.
The time for meditation is very precious. It's your hundreds of eons of evolution squeezed together. Just like a concentrated chip for the computer. Just a little chip like this contains thousands, sometimes even millions of bits of information. So, it's not the size. It's not the time, it's not the number that we are accustomed to. The time of meditation is a completely different time, different space. So, the more you enter into this timeless, spaceless space (Master laughs) the better it is for you. The more you know yourself, the more you are free.
