Is Meditation Lame?

Recap: We’re talking about exercises that inform you how to focus your thoughts. Last week’s blog Letter addressed an exercise you can try: Exercise #1 Stop Mental Chatter!

Exercise #2 Meditate

Is Meditation Real?I don’t meditate every day. I do it when I feel mentally stuck in one place. Emptying our minds is a step in the right direction. I learned that I could apply it to everything I do because I am learning to feel peaceful and more powerful. It improves my focus, and focus attracts Extra Sensory Perception like seeing and hearing very positive guidance that a lot of people don’t see and hear. Who doesn’t want that?

Meditation is emptying the mind in order to experience what is abstract. Not letting thoughts interfere is a monumental challenge for everyone. I use a technique suggested by the meditation master Chögyam Trungpa, perceiving the word “thinking” every time I realize I am thinking while sitting and calming down. I allow the word representation to float away. Note, “allow” not “force”. It takes practice.

B-R-E-A-T-H-E Try feeling as though the middle of your breath is the middle of a starry universe. A sense of unity comes, and it has a message about loving yourself because you are a part of something BIG.

    Maybe this page has something to do with fathers. I definitely felt it when I read the last paragraph, especially being a part of something BIG. I feel like I just channeled my dad aka Big Ed. He was always so supportive and encouraging. I miss him very much. Thank you. Also, this page is odd for me, because I do not meditate, per say. If I could walk on or sit on the beach again and listen to the waves, that would be my form of meditation, or dreaming.

      From the author: Thanks Susan, and you’ve brought up a good point. Meditation doesn’t mean only sitting cross legged in a darkened room. It’s when and where each of us feels peace, enough to let go of our mental chatter. Eventually, feeling “where” it’s taken us, leads to integrating it into more and more times in our daily lives without trying.
