Bridle your emotions for stress-free life (By Acharya Mahapragyaji):
The first step in meditation is to learn how to control emotions. We need to focus on overcoming our emotions and passions. Physical stress can be removed with simple practices. Practice should ensure that mental tension is not created at all. By hearing some words, if tension is created, we should develop the right perspective to prevent tension.
Tension occurs in the absence of right knowledge. By adding right speech to knowledge, our perspective would leave no scope for tension.
Let us not blame anyone for anything. If we see the incident in the right way, tension will never arise. Otherwise, there is enough frivolous talk around us to cause agitation without any concrete reason. Man gets overwhelm by his emotions. It is not by facts, but only by sheer imagination, that men are filled with stress. A person with right perspective, right knowledge and right conduct does not experience tension.
A person gets tense only when he is buffeted by his emotions. Through the practice of Preksha meditation, we can master the special technique of pacifying our emotions. We can see that they are not provoked. This, in itself, is adequate spiritual practice or Sadhana.
