Ana Pana Sati Stablises The Mind and resolves negativities

Are there some moments, when one feels like resenting, shouting or wailing? Everyone does, at some or other time. All of us have some or other problem. At times these problems might have been triggered by someone else's miscalculation. We might get some relief by complaining or blaming. Also if we are at fault, then we might try to cover it by pretending that everything is fine. These are negative acts. How do we resolve these negativities?  By, practising the simplest form of meditation, Ana Pana Sati, " breathe in breathe out and be one with it" we will be able to resolve these negativities and stabilize our minds easily.                                                             Keep Meditating

Be A Meditator- When it seems as though our thoughts are not dissipating

Photo Credit: Jonny Lindner Your becoming aware is actually doing the work. Think of a thought as firewood and awareness as fire. The firewood has a certain amount of strength in it. It has a burning capacity. It will burn out sooner or later. You just have to keep the fire burning, as in be aware, just as you have demonstrated your intention to be aware. If the fire is strong, the wood will burn faster, if the wood is dry, the wood will burn faster. Here fire being strong is a metaphor for your awareness. Similarly, if the thought is light or does not contain an emotional charge or trauma, it burns away faster, but if a thought has weight or is emotionally charged or related to some repeated trauma, it will hold on for longer. You may not be able to overcome it in one session or even in multiple sessions. This does not mean that the fire is not burning or that the wood is not burning away. It is just a dif

Be A Meditator- Be grateful for everything

   Meeting an old friend may give great pleasure to one person and for another, it may be just fine. Why does such a difference exist? Maybe the other person has yet to learn to be happier. How can we achieve it? Be grateful for small things, big things, and everything in between. Simply observing breath with awareness.                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Keep Meditating

Need Of Love For heart and Soul

   If we go down memory lane we would find, that there were some moments when we just felt like crying. A feeling of not being loved enough.  What we might have done at that moment? Why are we looking for love outside? Love is within ourselves. Search for it. Search for it by practising meditation regularly.   Meditation satisfies our need for love to heart and soul.                                                                                                                                                  Keep Meditating

Be A Meditator- Treat the mind as you would a wailing child

 How do we calm a wailing child? First of all, we try to meet the child's needs. If the need can not be met then we try to explain or try to focus his mind on something else. We should keep finding alternative solutions and not heap any judgement.  Whenever our mind is behaving like a wailing child, try to calm it down by returning to our breath. Continue observing the breath.                                                                                                                                          Keep Meditating

Be A Meditator- The sun of love and compassion, rises every morning in meditation

                                                                                                                                                                       What is so special about morning meditation and how to do it? One way is to focus on our breath and clear our minds of worries. Generate awareness of the sensations of breathing. Notice the sensation around our hearts. We may feel a sense of warmth, openness, and tenderness. Continue to focus on our breath. imagine that we are extending a golden light that holds our warm feelings from the centre of our hearts, Imagine that golden light reaches out to our loved ones and the universe, bringing peace and happiness to everyone.                                                                                                                                                                                                                             keep Meditating

Be A Meditator- Meditate to not get affected by changing emotions

 Did you notice that whenever we are watching TV or a movie on a screen or computer or mobile phone, Scenes are projected on the screen in the form of moving pictures, but the moving images do not affect the screen? Life is also like a screen. Daily activities, emotions, and thoughts keep coming and going, but our body is not affected, only sometimes our minds get affected. meditation can help us to remain like a screen and not get affected by changing emotions.                                                                                                                                                                        Keep Meditating

Be A Meditator- Continue with your daily meditation

   Do you want to start meditating? many of us want to do meditation because something is troubling us, and we are looking for quick relief. But when we start meditating a lot of thoughts pass through our minds. Sometimes we get tangled with some of them. meditation is not about turning off our minds. thoughts come and go. Meditation can teach us to get detached from passing thoughts and continue with our meditation.                                                                                                                                                                                                              Keep Meditating

Be A Meditator- Meditate before an adventure or learning.

   Many of us have a desire to go climbing mountains, sailing or river rafting. We may even aspire to go deep inside the jungles, searching for new trails. However, before we start our journey, many pros and cons cross our minds. Many a time, when we start the adventure, we can hear the pounding heart and pulse rate going high. But, if we meditate before starting an adventure, we will become calm and not worry about consequences.  It is observed that often at the end of the event, we get immense pleasure. The same is the case with learning. If we meditate before starting our lessons, it will register deep down in our minds. Meditation before an adventure or learning gives immense pleasure.                                                                                                                                                Keep Meditating

Be A Meditator- Verbalisation of things into word may be a hinderance to a meditative mind.


Be A Meditator- Whenever side tracked make it a meditation

 With a mind capable of thinking 50,000 thoughts a day. It is easy to get sidetracked, from the task at hand. Bring yourself back to the breath, and get intensely involved in it. continue to observe your breath.                                                                                 Keep Meditating 

Meditate to See the Real Person Within

 Do you have mood swings? Everyone has mood swings. Sometimes we are angry due to some reason and tend to start shouting, weeping or just go silent. Other times when we don't agree with others' opinions, we become rigid and just refuse to relent. little things irritate us so much that we start blaming others. Or cut off from everyone. But these behaviours prevail only for a little while. Another time we are also happy to see a beautiful sunrise. We sympathize with someone who is sad or forgive the person who has hurt us. Many times we patiently wait for our turn. There is a loving, friendly and caring person within us. Meditation helps us to go beyond our behavioural flaws and see the real person within us.                                                                                            Keep meditating.

Meditation Sees Us Through all the tests

 Some people nurture a feeling of disappointment because their capacity to help others remains unused. "I have so much strength, that I can move a lorry, ( I know I don't have to move a lorry).   However, why isn't anyone asking for my help"? or, " I am a sincere and dedicated worker, this is my truth". But why is it not being recognized by others?  I may have created a reservoir of water over many years, but if I don't let it flow. It will overflow and spill and all the effort will go waste. In the same way, all knowledge we accumulated has to pass through a test. Our Truth, Belief, Strength, and Knowledge, must pass through many tough tests. ( aag ke Dariya se ho ker guzarna parta Hai), before it can be acknowledged. Then what do we do to deal with this disappointment? Yes, one way is meditation.                        Meditation sees us through all these tests.
