Meditation has been defined in many different ways over the years. Personally, I like to think of meditation as mind training – training the mind to assist in living a mindful life. A good way to think of the mind is to consider it in the same way you do your body. You wouldn’t put your body through the torment of a game of sport without some training. A good few sessions at the gym, perhaps? Why don’t we think of our mind in the same way? Shouldn’t it be given a work out before it has to operate in this challenging thing we call ‘life’.
Meditation is a way of preparing your mind for life, a life that can sometimes be very stressful and difficult. Life becomes so much more manageable when you have a mind well trained and prepared for whatever comes your way.
The term meditation refers to a broad variety of practices that includes techniques designed to promote relaxation, build internal energy or life force, develop compassion, love, patience, generosity and forgiveness.
