Meditation and Loss (not what you think)

A student once asked his spiritual teacher what he has personally gained from meditating over the years.

“To be honest, I haven’t gained that much,” his wise teacher answered with a smile. “But I’ll tell you what I’ve lost.”

“I’ve lost my anger, my depression, many of my insecurities, and most importantly, I’ve lost my concern about what others think of me.“

If you can’t easily determine what you’ve gained from your inner work, it can be reassuring to consider all that you may have lost
