The art of meditation involves much more than calming our minds and paying attention to our sensations.
In fact, acquiring this habit of secluding ourselves in a quiet place to focus on our mind doesn’t really make sense if we are not able to integrate the meaning of this gesture into our daily experience.
Meditation goes far beyond taking a moment to yourself and learning to focus.
This habit must be a real part of our life for it to produce a profound change in us.
When starting meditation, we must have the ambition to be better people with our surroundings, with nature and with all the things that inhabit our world.
Our knowledge and beliefs sometimes prevent us from having a clear mind, innocent and sensitive to everything around it.
Meditation allows us to free our mind from the distortion of reality and the permanent mental noise that we all suffer from, to be awake and much more aware of all that is going on in our relationships and in our behaviors.
Getting to know our “me”
Meditation goes far beyond our mind. When it calms down, we come to a state of clarity that facilitates the elimination of all prejudices and preconceptions that distract our thoughts.
It is as if we are able to clear our minds to be more sensitive and more intelligent.
By discovering our “I” and by being attentive to the way in which it acts and in which it influences our life, we manage to be absent from our bodily envelope and to put our mind in order.
It allows us to increase our capacity to live in the present moment and to benefit from all the experiences that we can garner in our existence.
Have you ever noticed how much your personal experience contaminates your thoughts?
If we are able to keep our minds calm, we will be able to dive into the heart of the experiences, accepting them as they are, without pretending to change them.
Meditating allows us to be in contact with nature
Meditation is not a technique to be practiced, nor a skill to be learned in our mind. In theory, it does not require effort.
Meditation is above all mental activity, for it is precisely capable of observing this activity. Where the mind ends, meditation begins.
We can use meditation to achieve our goals and to achieve important learning.
However, through meditation we can also connect in harmony with nature.
We find our purest state, which remains within us despite the various experiences of our life.
This is how we can truly integrate who we are and how we can see that we are not only made up of our personal actions and successes.
We come into contact with the nature of things through meditation, which allows us to discover our true “me”.
The principle of meditation is self-knowledge
Getting to really know ourselves through meditation requires focusing on our mental activity, which is made up of thoughts and feelings, in addition to all the other activities that are generated by our mind.
We must act as observers of an experience to truly discover ourselves.
When we understand our mental activity, we allow our subconscious to spontaneously surface.
This is how we free ourselves from the noise that confuses us, confuses us and invades our consciousness.
We gradually remove the layers that obstruct our vision to capture the world around us with more clarity.
