Have you ever sat an a beach on a warm summers day
gently listening to the waves washing upon the shore.
feeling happy and contented, without a care in the world ?
have you ever been in love and felt fully alive as though you where walking on sunshine ?
have you ever took the time to see the breath taking beauty in the way the sunlight sparkles upon the water ?
or stopped and listened to the silence of the falling snow or the sound of a bird singing. ?
have you ever lost yourself in creating or making something you truly enjoy ?
when trying to give a person a taste of what meditation is about this is the nearest thing I can find to explain it all ...it's kind of like
....time just vanished ..went flying by
like when a person becomes very aware of life right "now" with direct focus .
it's that sudden breath taking " WOW" !!! factor .
meditation is a "now" thing to become aware to tune into what is here right "now"
meditation is time out ...from the constant chattering of the mind
meditation is to bring peace on earth to yourself
and when you get real good at moving into this state of meditative ..peace on earth
ah !....then you have been given the ability to ...
move into this state of heavenly peace...any time ..even when stood in the middle of hell.
sitting for hours meditating is also a way to self-discipline the mind to become still enough
to get the taste of this peaceful state of being .
there are many benefits to meditation .
