Question: I sometimes feel in my meditations that I am not being as sincere as I would like to be. How can I change this?Sri Chinmoy: When you feel you are not sincere in your meditation, try to imagine right in front of you a baby crying pitifully for its mother’s attention. The cry of a baby is absolutely sincere. Try to identify with the sincere cry the child has. If you can identify yourself with the child’s cry, with its helplessness, then sincerity will automatically dawn.
