What is Meditation?
Meditation is a way to cleanse the mind and let go of unwanted, habitual and negative thoughts.
Meditation takes our brain waves from high thinking beta waves, down through relaxation states to the inner tranquility of delta waves, then back up to beta activity, giving us much needed calm, rest and peace.
Many people think it is necessary to sit cross-legged on the floor, this is not so. You can sit on a chair. Neither is the goal to ‘shut off’ the mind. It is to use Meditation as a way ‘to be’ with all the thoughts and feelings that come up and to develop the awareness of the mind and see the nature of the mind for understanding, skilful thinking and developing mindfulness of the present moment, where life is being lived right here -right now.
Then we can make changes, transform and connect to truth and our hearts. We develop understanding and practice wisdom, compassion and kindness and we share that with others and our communities, so we meditate also for the good of all.
Meditation can be achieved by simply learning various techniques. And with regular practice can lead to a deeper connection within, happiness, joy, less suffering and to self-realization and truth.
