What meditation is can be seen in very different
Meditation is not a technique or method
to reach a determined goal. That one becomes more relaxed, emotionally
and mentally balanced, can be seen as a side effect, but is not the reason
why we meditate.
'Meditation' is a way to relate and respond
in one's life to whatever shows up, outside and inside. - It is more an
attitude than something we are doing.
Of course it might be that someone feels
nervous and desperate or is sick and because of this starts to meditate.
Indeed this is very important for the 'healing process' and probably the
most important basic step. If we come during our path to the moment when
struggling through life seems just a turning around ourselves, then after
questioning our position and reflecting about it, we might come to a meditative
state, where our intention to do something for a specific reasen, mostly
because we want to reach a certain goal, has faded away... maybe letting
us fall into desperation. Often this happens after something tragical breaks
into our until then undisturbed lifestyle, when our cart house of security
falls down, leaving us without orientation. Often this happens because
of a serious health problem...
Although this situation will be felt as
a negative state, it can be a new beginning, an opening to fields of awareness,
which will give unknown sense. A new security coming out of insights. The
deep longing to connect with one's source will finally guide to the state
of 'meditation'. But not necessaryly one has to go through heavy happenings
to come to the need to meditate, this urge might come as a sudden from
inside... We are here to help you to enter in this state in an easy way.
You don't need to pay to be initiated into
meditation or to join a meditation retreat, although a retreat might help
as a start. If you have the urge to meditate then it is possible that you
come to a meditative state just by sitting down, closing the eyes and letting
go the outside world... But to avoid falling into old pattern of doing,
one can seek for some help. We can give you some advices through email,
is no ritual necessary just plain information. If there is an obstacle
from your side to ask for help then read this:
