Meditation


No words can adequately describe meditation. Meditation is something which can occur naturally or spontaneously to provide a sense of oneness or connectedness, and meditation can also result from the practice of concentration.  Concentration becomes meditation when the practitioner looses the distinction between the self and the object of concentration.

Meditation when it occurs naturally or spontaneously may be likened to a gift from spirit, an insight or revelation which may never be repeatable. Meditation when sought through regular practice over time becomes easier and very rewarding. With practice you learn to stay focused and you will that find meditation is a valuable tool to ease stress and to gain insight and direction in life.

Enlightenment:
The highest wish of the creator is that each and every individual will blossom fully and express itself to the peak of its individual essence or capacity while simultaneously have the awareness to look back at the source to know who it is and where it came from. The intention is to have a simultaneous full expression of individuation and union with the creator.

How to meditate Meditation: A First and Last Freedom

  1. Sit comfortably
    • While it maybe ideal to meditate while sitting in padmasana, it is more important to be comfortable and a comfortable chair is adequate.
  2. Select a subject to meditate on
    • Subjects are many. A neutral and easy subject is to witness the act of breathing.
    • Every time concentration is lost, bring your attention back to the subject.
    • Meditate on wealth to become wealthy
    • Meditate on the word of god to become more godly
  3. Duration of meditation can be from 5 - 10 minutes to many hours
  4. Meditation cannot be forced or coerced

Other thoughts

  • Meditation is a holistic introspective appreciation of our human nature. It is a time-out from stress, allowing the mind to become calm and for life to harmonize. With inner peace comes self realization and a greater ability to be creative and enjoy life.
  • Meditation may begin with relaxation and involve transcendence, inspiration or divine experience and is a way of exploring  consciousness, a process of self study and learning. One explanation is that prayer is talking to, or asking God, and meditation is conversation with God.
  • Meditation is often an unconscious experience occurring during day dreams or absent mindedness. By using tools  such as mantra, prayer or concentration exercises, a state of altered consciousness or meditation is typically experienced. As we are all unique individuals, so to is meditative experience. The common elements in meditation are relaxation and the experience of dream like states, often with insights or realizations.

  • The word Man comes from Sanskrit Manasic which means the thinker.

Yoga: The Science of the Soul"Every genius has a child in him; no genius can exist without a child inside him -- this child is the source of all his energy! Because of the child within him, sometimes he can be a novice, sometimes he can be totally ignorant: he can touch realms about which he knows nothing. A mathematician who turns to poetry is never a loser. He comes back to his mathematics with a purer mind, with new experiences that are unknown to mathematics". Osho
