What is Meditation?

Meditation is the art or technique of quieting the mind so that the endless chatter that normally fills our mind is stilled. Gradually in the silent mind, the meditator begins to observe without judgement, to reach a level of detachment, and eventually, to become aware of a higher state of consciousness.
The practice of meditation helps us clear our minds. It rids us of stresses, intrusive thoughts, and fragments and echoes of the outside world – all of which engulfs our conscious minds. Meditation makes our minds more unclutter and open to what’s truly important. And the benefits extend well beyond the meditative state itself. The deeper that meditation takes us, the further we move away from the level of everyday consciousness (encompassing frustration, stress, anxiety, and worry), and the closer we draw to the higher self, we open more and more with the capacity to love.
Consequently, as we gain a higher perspective about life and our place in the world, we start appreciating the love that lies within us. We discover that we already possess this precious gift that’s so full of beauty, we find ourselves filled with self-love and are able to achieve happiness and joy.
Meditation demands practice and patience, but the act of meditating itself continues to generate more and more patience. After all, what’s important is that we’re getting to discover and know more and more about our own core which is the most beautiful, receptive, and productive part of ourself. There are many ways to tap into this higher self of ours, and the more we progress along this path, the easier it becomes to achieve increasingly higher levels of spirituality.
