Meditation mastery is not as daunting as it might seem at first glance. Understanding why meditation is important and what the benefits of regularly connecting your mind and body are will help to give you a little more incentive to give it a try. In the words of Aristotle, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit”, So if there’s more power in creating a healthy habit than merely “doing” it stands to reason that meditation can be thought of as a habit, and not just an act.
I remember when I first started teaching introductory Mind/Body meditation to my college students. Most of them thought it meant they had to go up on a mountain or sit by a waterfall, cross their legs, close their eyes and then all of a sudden become enlightened. Well, that can certainly all be a part of the process, the more at peace and comfortable you are, the more likely you will be putting yourself in a state in which you can “receive”, if you will. However, it simply boils down to not your physical geography or what props you have around you, what matters most is your mental geography – where you are in your head!
Here are just a few of the areas I have found this ancient practice to help with. 1. Helping you to discover what your true values are, the things, ideas, and feelings that are most important to you. 2. It can help to give you clarity in your decision making process. 3. Provides emotional balance and awareness 4. Is a gateway to greater spiritual connection and exploration. 5. Meditation is a way to answer those buring questions deep down inside such as “who am I?” and “what’s my purpose?”. If you find yourself needing help or clarity in these areas or others, then regular meditation might be just what you need.
