Why should You Meditate?
Meditating is one of the best and easiest ways to reduce stress. It is also one of the most misunderstood techniques.
Most of you believe that learning meditation requires you to change your views on life, sell your possessions and go to live in a cave.
Now this may be a little of an exaggeration, but a lot of you think meditating requires you to endure some hardship. That meditating makes you want to change the world, live in peace and harmony, that you will have a mystical or magical experience.
Well, I do want to live in peace and harmony, like you. I want to drive a car, live in a nice house, and have luxuries around me. These are believed by most not in the same picture as the virtues of meditating.
Views on meditation have become a bit distorted and perverted. Meditating is purely and simply a way to calm and quiet the mind. It is not a religious, magical or mystical experience.
Meditating is a way of unlocking your potential to… release stress, improve your health, increase energy, and stimulate creativity, intuition and many other well documented benefits of meditating.
You can even meditate when you drive your car.
If you want to learn how to meditate, don’t buy a book or tapes and CD’s. You can learn to meditate without any difficulty at all. Once you know how to meditate, and then buy the book and tapes/CD’s.
All you need to do is…
Quiet your mind.
Just stop thinking, stop analyzing and stop judging. It sounds simple; it is actually very hard to do. Today you live in a world that has numerous mental pressures, deadlines and stresses.
You live in a world where you have the highest mental activity… ever. In no other time of our planets history has mental activity been greater.
All this mental activity… which is both around you and within your head… stops you from having a clear, quiet and calm mind.
