Great leaders and millions of people from all walks of life meditate. You don 't have to be a mystic, shaman, priest or a "spiritual" person to enjoy the benefits of meditation.
My Promise: No Guru talk. No Religion. Just meditation information and some opinion.
Yes, I meditate and have for…show more content… This is normal. The reason is because the uncontrolled mind is reactive to external circumstances and ingrained habit. It could also be something in the past we need to resolve. Or as I said, just habit.
The good news: If we learn the basic steps of meditation and practice each day, within a short time we remove from our mind the attachments and allusions of life that cause all our problems and suffering. In time... we experience a state of inner peace. We try to make it permanent.
How to Meditate: Basic Steps for Meditation
The best way is to start is with a simple breathing meditation. Choose a quiet place to meditate and sit in a comfortable position. You can sit in the traditional cross-legged posture or in any comfortable seated position. I learned and still prefer most times to sit in a chair. Ensure that where you meditate is private and quiet and that you keep our back straight to prevent your mind from becoming sluggish or sleepy. It is very easy to nod-off.
Sit with our eyes partially closed or lightly closed, then turn your attention to your breathing. Breathe naturally through the nostrils and without attempting to control our breath. Concentrate your eyes on a spot between the eye brows. It is a great focal point and has another purpose for later study. Also, it may be helpful to have meditative recordings in the background. As you become accustomed to meditation, you won 't need any supportive audio.
