Meditation starts with catharsis and ends with celebration. When your diseases are thrown, you can dance and laugh, you can feel blissful. Only in this blissful state will there be a meeting, a meeting with the universe. That meeting is divine.
Unless you have known that meeting and reunion, you have not known anything at all. Only one thing is worth knowing, and that is the deep rootedness of your being in the being of the universe. Unless you feel that you are the universe, that you are in the universe and the universe is in you, you will be in misery; you will be in hell.
