The act of meditation elicits a certain image in the minds of many people. When you think about meditation, you might visualize a monk in flowing robes sitting in a monastery somewhere in the Himalayas or along the river Ganges in India. The reality of the situation is that meditation is not solely for the religiously devout; it belongs to every human being.
Meditation is about being, not doing. No matter the spiritual practice, no matter the title or tradition from which it stems, realizing this fundamental truth of infinite connectedness and infinite being is what meditation is. Many aspiring meditators struggle with doing it right. No matter the method you use, you can’t meditate wrong, so long as your attitude and approach to it remain fixed on the path. It comes in many, varied forms. Whether you call it prayer, call it mindfulness, call it worship, or walking in the quiet forest, the essence of meditation is about a return to our spiritual center.
Life is about being, not about doing. So, I want you to take a moment right now and simply breathe. Meditate. Just inhale, hold, then exhale…
I give you permission to lose yourself in the precious gift of an ever-present moment. As you breathe, realize that this is your link to eternity. It is our breath that grants us access to the infinite domain of reality. That is meditation at is most fundamental. If you can fix your mind on that foundation, then you cannot fail.
