Meditation. Many things in life are beyond our control, the purpose of meditation is to quiet the mind and provide peaceful space amid the demands of life. It’s easy to feel stressed or overworked, meditation will help to considerably reduce all of these sufferings of mind and the following is a practical and simple guide to starting your meditations:
Meditation –Breathe. Stop all distractions and try to bring your mind to a state as clearly and lucid as possible. Start by finding a beautiful, comfortable, quiet place for sitting .You can do the meditation in the traditional cross-legged posture or any other position that is comfortable for your body. Make sure that the position of your back is straight and help the mind to find equilibrium in the body so that it does not feel tired. Calmly, with eyes closed slightly turn your attention to your breathing. The goal of meditation is to breathe naturally through the nose, and become aware of the sensation of the breath as it enters and leaves the body. Any distraction or thought that comes to mind, try to leave it alone and exclude it. Your mind is probably filled with many different thoughts, but resist the temptation to follow them as they arise, and continue focusing on the sensation of breathing. If the mind loses against concentration, very quietly return to the start and focus all attention on the process of breathing again. Do not feel pressured if at first you cannot achieve total concentration. Remember that meditation is an exercise, therefore, practice is essential, to experience the greater benefits of this over time.
