Practice, practice practice….is the important phrase in meditation. To understand deeply the meaning of it its necessary to follow the advice. Of course different people start to practice meditation because of different aims. The aims can be following:
- learn to relax
- understand yourself better
- learn to control your mind / emotions
- as a stress resolver
Just to name only few. There is almost in every culture a kind of meditation practice in very big variation of depth and or needs of the difference of humans. But I can say in around 30 years of my meditation journey in comparison there are mainly three levels of in almost all mediation practice.
- the relax level
- self understanding level
- be one with God, Goddess, Buddha, Allah, Manitu, Cosmos or the one and so on
So many humans with so many different needs thats why are so many several meditation arts existing. The motivation to bring individual needs into action can be quite varied. A friend was telling you about, you read a book or journal where mediation gets explained for what it is good for. If you start to search for a meditation seminar to learn it or looking for schools or master to practice it then you can actually say the friend or the book / journal is/ was your first spirituell guide. The friend or the book or journal writer was opening a new way to live or act the world and or looking behind the mind limitation. Opening ones spirituell path is a like to create a good karma for yourself. Bring humans to a deeper understanding by experience not by thinking only is quite a high level good action. My first spirituell guide was Herman Hesse with the book „Siddhartha“. Once in while I take it this 30 year old book who is yellowish by age already with coffee and food spots on it smelling like historical looking at it and saying by heart thank you.
Do you remember when and or because of what your spirituell interests or journey was starting ? Would be interesting to read or hear your comments about…..
Soon some practical tips will written by me, so stay tuned …..
