Meditation/Consciousness

2 years, 10 months ago

Meditation brings a sense of fullness and completion, and is the only permanent source of tranquility available to human beings. All other forms of serenity are temporary and dissolve into conflict and chaos over time. The euphoria of drugs quickly lead to misery and self-destruction. The wholesomeness of love, so beautiful and ethereal, is a relatively short lived and fleeting experience. As J. Krishnamurti said, meditation brings order and “That order is the order of the universe. It is irrevocable and doesn’t depend on anything.” Meditation is the eternal essence of nature taking on conscious form within the mortal human frame.

Meditation is an adventure of self-discovery. How can you live without knowing who or what you are? If someone asks you who you are during the day, you may state your name, as if a temporary label actually means something important. Ask yourself who you are when you are in deep sleep, unconscious, and without even a dream to prove that you exist. Ask yourself who you were ten months before you were born, and who you will be just one moment after your body dies. Meditation increases awareness of the natural phenomena that is actually going on behind your own eyes. Self-knowledge has intrinsic value, even without the indescribable bliss nature generously unleashes in those who practice meditation with sincerity and patience.

I’d like to try meditating, as I believe meditation helps… But I don’t know how to start or what to do…

@alexunknown, Easiest way to start is to simply pick a time in a day when you are free from anything else, preferably when you are at home, find a place where you can sit comfortable (preferably in a style of cross legged position, may be lotus, half lotus or simply cross legged however you feel comfortable), make sure you are not distracted by your phone or other devices, make sure the place is quiet, close your eyes and just simply start watching your respiration.
With watching your respiration I mean: feel as the breath goes into your body, through your nostrils into your lungs, and while you breath out feel as it goes out of your longs through your nostrils outside your body. Keep on doing this for a couple of minutes and make it a habit to practice this every day. It does not matter whether you do it for 5 minutes or for an hour, at the beginning it is important to make a habit out of doing it. Important thing is to stay focussed on what you are doing. Whenever some thoughts come into your mind, just observe, do not judge, and go back to your breath. You can practice this breath exercise during the day as well, whenever you are aware of your breath, you are expending your meditation knowledge.

Good luck!
