The western religions came about a lot later, No matter how you believe meditation is about the individual.The choice of position when meditating is just personal choice. You can be sitting, lying down, and kneeling, go using some of the older traditional positions. A regular meditation practice can and will change your life. Meditating on a daily basis provides you with the tools you need to be honest with yourself and others. Meditation is the essential tool for self-improvement.Meditation requires focusMeditation requires discipline.Meditation requires willingness.When you realize the above, it becomes obvious that meditation is the foundation for self-responsibility. Without a process for reflection and self-assessment, you will not be able to make the changes in your life that you want to make.Meditation develops and strengthens your ability to look at yourself from an emotionally detached point of view. This point of view provides you with the necessary perspective for an honest evaluation of your life: how you’re responding to others, how you’re effecting others, what path you’re heading down and what steps you can take to change that path for the better.In addition with being able to assess yourself, meditation gives you the ability to forgive yourself. That may sound strange but it’s true. It is also important. Without the ability to forgive yourself for your past mistakes you will not be able to move forward in life. Without the ability to forgive yourself, you will not be able to forgive others. If you don’t forgive others you will spend your life building up a host of unresolved resentments that will wear you down mentally and emotionally without your ever realizing it.Meditation helps you develop “witness consciousness.” This mental state creates for you the mental space needed to do all the above. Without a reflective, meditative practice witness consciousness cannot be developed.Having said all the above, you need to know that meditation is easy.

Listen to a guided visualization CD, download an mp3 file, go on YouTube and look for videos, check out amazon for books and ebooks.Like learning anything else, there are many different ways to start learning how to meditate. The most important thing is to start somewhere and keep at it.Meditation – not just for yogis anymoreHow can one start learning about meditation? What kind of meditation is easiest for the beginner?
