What is meditation?
Is it more than the clearing of the mind?
Meditation is the unification of the mind, soul, and spirit. The Dohgon meditate to improve our concentration by balancing our Thymine, Uracil, and Cytosine levels.
There are many types of meditation. And yes, some of them are much more than the clearing of the mind. But there is a deep and wonderful form of meditation that is, in truth, the clearing of the mind. But that means far more than you might think. In the ancient Chinese Tao Te Ching (Book of the Integrity of the Way), it says that "the world is gained by daily addition; the way is gained by daily subtraction." To truly clear the mind is to subtract all suffering, and all confusion, and all sources of suffering from the whole mind and body. Dwelling in balance and free of confusion, we become clear channels for Love and Wisdom That is a deep form of meditation; that is what it truly means to clear the mind.
Meditation to me is bringing peace in the state of mind.
It is a chance to allow our bodies to heal from pollution and toxic.
Meditation is a self-induced form of inward looking. To meditate is to think upon a subject and possibly make decisions from your thoughts. It has proven to be beneficial in many ways such as metabolism, controlling blood pressure and even helping to heal the body from a host of illnesses from minor to very serious. It is a well observed and researched practice by many interested individuals and also associated with many world religions and their precepts. Meditation is now being recognized as a wonderful human ability to heal oneself.
An ordinary person may consider meditation as a worship or prayer. But it is not so. Meditation means awareness. Whatever you do with awareness is meditation. "Watching your breath" is meditation; listening to the birds is meditation. As long as these activities are free from any other distraction to the mind, it is effective meditation.
Meditation is not a technique but a way of life. Meditation means 'a cessation of the thought process' . It describes a state of consciousness, when the mind is free of scattered thoughts and various patterns . The observer (one who is doing meditation) realizes that all the activity of the mind is reduced to one.
Meditation does not mean remembering someone. Meditation means to drop everything which is in one’s memory and to come to a state where only consciousness remains, where only awareness remains.
Meditation is focus, and doing so beginning with a persons breathing & simply being controlled by that of the mind, while inwardly and outwardly remaining focused only on one general theme, in attempts to clear ones mind.
After each inhale and exhale meditation takes its shape, and true form only if the mind can begin to clear itself of clutter. Clutter meaning that which has mentally been blocking the mind in terms of random thoughts, any kinds of thought processes etc...
Meditation is spiritual balance between the focus of the mind, and that of the environment as well as stabilized heart, lungs, and all of your outer extremities.
It also is a form of enlightenment or becoming one with everything, it was established by many eastern philosophers, and spiritualist such as the Buddha or Siddhārtha Gautama from India (Considered by many in his time to be the 'Enlightened One', and worshiped as a god by countless others of his followers.)
The art of Zen was one that I studied many years ago, and it take the mind down a road of nothingness, or the claim of achieving ultimate enlightenment by confirming to oneself that everything truly is nothing, and the mind must adhere to such to understand such a in depth focus as Zen underlines.
Meditation is controlling and withdrawing the mind from all the thoughts of outer world to concentrate on the inner world
