This article will help you understand what meditation is all about.
In a simple way, meditating means being aware of everything you are doing right now. Observing the breath is a meditation, listening to the sounds of nature is a meditation, or even walking down the street with full awareness is also a meditation.
Meditation is a way of life to observe things without judging or worrying about them. Any activity that is free from other distractions for the mind is an effective meditation.
A meditator or observer, after developing a certain level of consciousness, enters a state of consciousness that is free from scattered patterns of thought. Meditation is an approach to directing your attention inward.
Meditation teaches your mind how to access the most essential qualities of life from within you, such as love, compassion, kindness, inner peace, and joy.
Meditation can be a spiritual practice, but not necessarily a prayer or a religious act.
Just as exercise works to keep your body in shape, so does meditation work to keep your mind in shape.
“Meditation is the way we return to ourselves, where we can really experience and taste our full being.” ~ S. Rinpotxe
“Meditation is like giving ourselves a hug, coming into contact with this amazing reality in us. As we meditate we feel a deep intimacy with God, a love that is inexplicable. ” ~ Paramahansa Yogananda
Just think – what you are experiencing is for your mind and without it, you are just a machine. Say for example: all the knowledge you acquire, all the memories you keep, your feelings of love, joy, emotions, anger, pain and artistic skills, etc., everything!
Just think for a moment and ask yourself: How much time do you really spend knowing and understanding your mind? This is where meditation helps you. It helps you focus from the outside world to the inside. It reconnects you with your true identity. It helps you make friends with your mind and train it to be conscious, calm and relaxed.
