Be A Meditator- Meditation is quietening of human noise to gain deeper insight

 'Meditation is quietening of human noise', so say all the revered teachers. When we start meditating, all physical activities are supposed to have stopped, and only the mind is active. Mind is very complex and very tricky. It makes simple things complicated. How can we get detached from the tricks of the mind?  We can start with awareness.  Awareness of every part of our body culminates in quietening of the mind. The body starts relaxing and we are no longer attached to the mind. Then we may see some miracles of awareness. That is without saying anything, without doing anything, it simply dissolves all that is negative in us into all that is beautiful. Like a wonderful opportunity to MEET a deeper insight.                                                                                                      Keep meditating

Be A Meditator- In the beginning of meditation, there will be small pools of silence.

 One day my brother decided to start meditating. After the session, he shared his experience. He said there were hundreds of thoughts crossing his mind. So many forgotten incidents also appeared in his mind, and some were imaginary too. Every beginner is looking for a calm mind without any thoughts. Thoughtlessness doesn't come easily. there will be small pools of silence. Meditational practice is to be considered the most important activity of each day. Schedule it as we make an extremely important appointment and unfailingly we keep it. Like all other things, meditation takes practice, which is true for beginners and more advanced meditators alike.                                                                                                                                                              Keep Meditating

Be A Meditator- send good thoughts to people immediately after meditation

   The minutes immediately after meditation are the most important moments, because our thoughts can be at a higher vibration. During this time, we can set intentions and 'Metta' or loving-kindness is a beautiful practice of sending good thoughts to other people. It is an excellent way to end a meditation session. One of the thoughts can be,  "may all beings be happy, may all beings be peaceful." as used by revered teacher S. N. Goenkaji. Practice meditation regularly. Keep Meditating

Be A Meditator- Embrace our worries, our fear, our anger

 It's true, no one ever solved a situation by panicking. No one ever solved an issue by refusing to hear new answers, no one ever solved a problem by shutting himself. Anger fears and worries are nothing more than an outward expression of hurt and frustration created in our minds. If we can take charge of our minds, we can create blissfulness. Meditation can help us embrace our fears, anger, and worries.                                                                                                 Keep Meditating
