What do you think it is to MEDITATE?

Updated: Apr 17, 2023


What do you think it is to MEDITATE? This word will probably automatically bring your mind to a Yogui in a crossed leg position with his eyes closed...is that the exact definition of MEDITATING?

The word comes from the latin Meditatum, which means to reflect;

However, Krishnamurti explains that "all effort to meditate is the opossite to meditation. Meditation is the end of thoughts. It is only then, when we are in a different dimension even beyond time."

Krishnamurti also explained: "When we learn about ourselves and we observe, we observe the way we walk, the way we eat , what we say, what we gossip, what we hate, our jealousy , if we are aware of everything that we have inside us ; this is part of the meditation. "


There are many concentration techniques that prepare us for meditation. It is always helpful being in a comfortable posture that we can sustain for several minutes . We can try to focus our attention on something specific, for example, our breathing. All these techniques will help us to focus on the present.


What are the benefits of meditation?


  • Lowing blood pressure

  • Reducing anxiety

  • Lowing pain related to tension such as: dementia, insomnia, muscle tension and joint pain.

  • Increasing serotonin production, which increases mood and behavior.

  • Improving the immune system

  • Estimulating brain centers that release endorphins and dopamine wich bring you to a state of joy.

  • Lowing inflammatory reactions on the body and its autoimmune response.

  • Building skills to reduce stress

What is the best time to meditate?


If we set aside time to practice as a routine, the best time will be early in the morning or at the end of the day, because there is more Prana (energy) accumulated in the atmosphere.

Having a routine is essential to see progress, only five or ten minutes of practice a day can be enpugh at the beginning.


How do I start?


To start practicing meditation, the use of techniques developed by the mind is required. Later it will begin to happen spontaneously and effortlessly; life itself becomes meditation because it is simply the consciousness of everything that exists (Dark / Light, Life / Death, Good / Bad).

The process of meditation is observation or awareness without judgment.


Finally, I believe that the intentions behind meditation are, above all, the pause and the reunion with our deepest being.

THE PAUSE


When in doubt, make a pause.


When you get mad, make a pause.


When get tired, make a pause.


When you are feeling stressed , make a pause.


And when you make a pause, breath deeply and be gratefull.
