Question: How can I get perfection in my meditation?

Sri Chinmoy: Just before you start meditating, say four things: "Fear, get out of my life! Doubt, get out of my life! Jealousy, get out of my life! Insecurity, get out of my life! I don't need you and I will never need you."

Then they will all come out of you and ask, "Whom do you want?"

"I want only meditation; I want only God," you will say.

"Now where is the proof?"

"The proof is that I can live without you, but you can't live without me. Jealousy, you can't live without me; that's why you come and take shelter inside my vital. Doubt, you can't live without me; that's why you come and take shelter in my mind. Insecurity, you can't live without me; that's why you come and take shelter in my heart. Fear, you can't live without me; that's why you come and take shelter in my body."

When you challenge these four in a divine way, they say it is beneath their dignity to remain inside you.

"If you can live without us, how is it that we can't live without you?" they ask, and then they go away. At that time you will have your perfect meditation.
