The minutes immediately after meditation are the most important moments of meditation because our thoughts can be at a higher vibration. In this time, we can set intentions. Metta or loving-kindness is a beautiful practice of sending good thoughts to other people. It is a very good way to end a meditation session, provided one's own mind has become peaceful. Some words that were used by the venerable teacher S.N. Goenkaji were "may all beings be happy, may all beings be peaceful."
One form of meditation is to observe your breath. "Ana-Pana-Sati" Lot of people practice this form of meditation, yet they don't feel calm. They easily get perturbed by the ups and downs of life.

Use this knowledge for reaching out the path that leads to equanimity (calmness and composure especially in a difficult situation)

We have to learn to manage it. We can overcome fear and condemnation by meditating regularly
We are all humans and tend to make mistakes. But sometimes, some of us start blaming ourselves or others for the mishaps. Even deprive ourselves and others of beautiful things the universe has bestowed upon us. Meditation helps in recognizing the uniqueness, wonder, and beauty of our own being. It enables us to treat ourselves, others, and nature with consideration and care.
Friends invite friends into their own path. If we are surrounded by people who applying the insights gained in meditation in their day-to-day life and relationships, then life is bound to become deeper and more meaningful for all of us.
When we water plants, they turn into trees. These trees attract clouds, there is rain. A bucket full of water comes back in the form of rain.
