The first contemplation is the
easiest. Meditation lets us naturally experience a condition of deep
peace. A person with problems always has a restless mind. Meditation
provides us with a natural, medicine free, experience of calmness. Morning
and evening meditation allows us to relax our restless mind at least
twice a day. This natural tranquillity makes us gain distance from our
problems, which shift to become duties. With a quiet mind, we have a
higher capacity to cope with our emotions, being more and more able to
face our duties. The quality of the experiencing our own life is
influenced by and dependent on our identification mechanism.
Our identification depends on our experiences.
We tend to identify ourselves in relation to our experiences.
Each experience has three aspects:
1. consciousness (witness, level of Being)
2. sensorial perception
3. object of perception.
The main aspect of a human being is his consciousness. If we have
problems, we loose ourselves in totally exterior things, being
bewildered by the complexity of our perceptions. Identifying ourselves
with pure appearance, we loose the consciousness of being and end up
living estranged from ourselves. The world is seen as hostile and life
becomes a struggle. Daily meditation is not an intellectual exercise,
yet the experience of calmness and silence of our proper consciousness.
Thus, the identification mechanism is being normalised, the level of
consciousness resurfaces again to the front. Meditation naturally
induces us into a evolution from having to being.
This gives us a completely new way to experiment ourselves, gradually
increasing our self-confidence. The internal address has been located.
We learn through the fact, that love and joy are being anchored in our
proper internal space. Nobody can ever remove this internal address.
Every time we find ourselves in difficulties, we have a method, a
starting point to rebalance our life. Meditation can also simply be
defined as mental hygiene. Daily meditation helps us to break free even
from the most radicated dependences. Throughout the years, we will
observe small but significant improvements in all aspects of our
personality. These improvements allow us to live our life with more
balance and pleasure. Until today, meditation is part of the religious
practice of all cultures.
Given that in present times, humanity is less interested in religion,
one should recognize that meditation, independently from any kind of
religion or ideology, is of great use to our mental hygiene and
development of consciousness. A lot of books could be written about this
issue, but the above shall be sufficient for the present introduction.
