Q&A: After meditation

In meditation I have had the experience that I was totally free. But then I had to go back to my regular life, and I felt very tired and very drained.

When you get a higher experience, it is something that will nourish you, feed you and strengthen you. If you are exhausted, if your energy is drained, it means that you have pulled beyond your capacity. Otherwise, right after meditation, you will have the strength of a lion.
