Its not holding your breath still
or being still
its holding your mind and soul
at the centre
the radius of your soul can expand
as you gain control
and edit your
to be calm and to train
your mind to understand.
There must be something special about meditation that all religions, multiple spiritual practices, exercises and masters talk about its importance to channelize your energy. But mere physical meditation in any way would not alter anything about your life, it has to be deeper and real.
For that it has to be personalised, some find peace looking at a distant object or a Mandala, some find it with closed eyes, some may chant loudly, others may just want lot of quiet around them.
Find out what works best for you and then the EDITING shall begin.
Meditation for me is a life skill I want to encourage my child also to take up. In the fast paced world it is one of the most inexpensive and easiest ways to find connect with ourselves, to look inwards in all this looking outwards.
Try to take this brief voyage every day into your inner landscape and you will know what I mean when I say MEDITATE MEANINGFULLY.
