If your meditation is only a personal matter; then it is not meditation

The pursuit of good mental health is the same. We are all in this together and my good health cannot be separated from your good health. Just as my bad health cannot be separated from the rest of humanity too.

We have to alter the structure of our society, its injustice, its appalling morality, the divisions it has created between man and man, the wars, the utter lack of affection and love that is destroying the world. If your meditation is only a personal matter, a thing which you personally enjoy, then it is not meditation. Meditation implies a complete radical change of the mind and the heart. This is only possible when there is this extraordinary sense of inward silence, and that alone brings about the religious mind. That mind knows what is sacred. – Jiddu Krishnamurti, from Beyond Violence
