Learning to Meditate
Meditation is a word that people often misconstrue. This happens because they don’t realize that meditation is something that can make people strong, and it isn’t just some chanting or putting your fingers together. When we talk about meditation, it means that there are many ways that you can meditate, and you can even do it while you are laying down or sleeping.
Other kinds of meditation such as tapa, dharana, samadhi, Japa, shoonya or even dhyana are different kinds of meditation that is hard meditation. Not everyone can meditate but you can become in a meditative state. You reach a certain place and do a kind of act when you meditate by putting your body and your mind in a certain level of energies. Meditation will happen naturally to people that learn to relax and keep open minded as long as you try.
Using the Mind to Meditate
The mind will meditate but it isn’t something that your mind wants to do. The reason that the mind is against meditation is because meditation means that you are required to keep your mind calm and collected and your body still.
When a person has a lot of stress and they are trying to sit still and not think of anything, it can be hard and sometimes even impossible. But once you learn to keep your body still then you will see that your mind will follow suit and you will be able to relax and concentrate on your relaxation.
If you decide to practice meditating, pay attention to how many times your body moves without you trying. Count hoe many movements your body makes and how long you keep quiet before you decide to stand up or to speak. Look at what is going on in your life and how busy that you are but how relaxed that you wish that you could be.
When you do meditation and you learn to keep your body still, you will see that your mind can start to understand what is going on with your body. Your mind allows yourself to make thoughts that are not helpful or necessary in your life and once your body learns to relax your mind can learn the same.
Meditation is that you can keep your mind in check and that you can be in charge of what your mind does and thinks. You are to be the one that is in charge of your mind, and you are not to be controlled by it.
Meditation allows you to get into a meditative state and when you do this you are able to control your body and your mind. You will be able to keep your mind in check and not let your mind be the thing that is in charge of what you are doing and thinking in your mind.
Your mind will always give you thoughts that can be both negative and positive and you need to get rid of any negative thinking so that you can push past any kind of suffering. Don’t let your mind be in charge and keep you a slave to it. Be in charge of your mind and your body and do this as you learn to meditate.
