What is Meditation
Meditation is a mental form of being, wherein we silence our thought process and arrive at the source of thought. In other words, we dismantle notions of the self and arrive at a higher being. Meditation is a process of calming the mind and an affirmation of the individual relationship to the universal.
The mistake we all make is to identify the mind with the activity going on in our heads, the endless stream of sensations, images, feelings, and thoughts that comprise consciousness in its active phase. In the gap between thoughts, something else appears—consciousness as the silent, boundless source of mental activity. Real meditation explores pure consciousness, brings it to the fore, and establishes it as the true nature of the mind.
The pursuit of higher consciousness, the process of waking up, the journey to enlightenment—whatever term you use, meditation solves the problem of the divided mind by opening the door to whole mind. Here some direct benefits you will experience:
