Community on Yoga, Meditation, Ayurveda and Spirituality
It has become a fantasy to practice yoga as only the postures.Yes when you start doing meditation lots & lots of thoughts pour in & to control these thoughts one has to have the guidance of a guru.
Just by closing your eyes for a specific period will not do any good but entering into the no thought zone is important which only your guru can help you out.
Yes it is true....Too much is too bad.Sometimes as a human being we try too many things as we have the exploring nature & we try too much for nothing.So if one has the determination to achieve a better mind & better health he/she has to dedicate themselves to this art with pure heart & there is no danger whatsoever in doing meditation,but in turn they reap the benefit which they have not noticed before.So,my friend go ahead & find out a teacher who would rid you of this fear.
Meditation can help you cope with the external “noise” that clogs up your day. Juggling the needs of your job and your family, and everything else that comes with being an adult, can be overwhelming. By meditating, you can slow down and find it easier to focus on what’s most important.
Meditation has been shown to reduce anxiety and improve mental clarity. If you are stressed about your job or a difficult decision in your life, meditation can help you get to the root of the issue and make calm, rational decisions.
Meditation can foster creativity and productivity by helping you think more deeply and come up with new, creative ideas and solutions to problems. Once you are in a meditative state, and you can focus clearly without distraction, you may find that your mind goes to new places that you didn’t expect. It’s like finding a brilliant, unused corner of your brain!
Dear Angela Ditch,
Yes the whole words you mentioned above are very true yet one thing which is most important and that is Meditation helps for SELF-REALIZATION through that one can know about self correctly and receive divine knowledge as well.
Dear Angela you are scholar of divine knowledge and thus request you to upload your own profile photo so that people can know you by your appearance also. I hope it will not hurt you. I do also expect some thing extra from you to let us know what you gain spiritually in meditation.
