It might be challenging to sit still in today’s hectic world, but through meditation, one can learn to focus and clear the mind of unnecessary stress. You don’t need to do anything while meditating – the thoughts and dreams that come along during this practice are what make it an effective and worthwhile activity.
With the rise in technological advancements, traditional meditation techniques that require us to stay still and observe do not bring the same level of mental energy as before. On the contrary, silence seems to fuel more activity in our minds – we tend to think faster and more intensely.
About the difficulty of sitting still:
Meditation is not necessarily what most people imagine it to be. Neither stillness, nor awareness, peace, nor emptiness may be the result of a meditation session. This can prove to be a challenge for those who think that meditation can be their saving grace in this day and age.
For a novice, it might be hard to comprehend that sitting still is actually a form of ‘rescue’. Consequently, some meditators start distrusting meditation and assert that it’s not beneficial for them. This is understandable as sitting still can indeed be an unwelcome experience. Sitting still may be difficult, but it’s perfectly normal. You can always resort to active meditation techniques if you want further insight into the practice. Getting grounded and reconnecting with the body is a great way to start. This step can help bridge the gap between thinking in the virtual world and a deeper understanding of meditation. Taking the time to get to know your body, recognizing its language, showing it appreciation and love. Active meditation techniques are an excellent way to become more mindful of your body. Active meditation practices are relatively easy and practical to do, either by yourself at home or with your peers in meditation centers or dedicated meditation rooms.
So, how does active meditation practice actually work?
Being aware of your body enables a state of impartial observation.
Moving encourages appreciation for yourself, and understanding your body offers insight into consciousness and dreams.
Stillness doesn’t only exist during periods of silence, but can also be found in active moments.
Lastly, active meditations have a positive effect on one’s mental & physical health. They also build resilience and increase overall wellbeing. As an additional bonus, the practice of active meditations serves as a great foundation to practice traditional meditation techniques and gain deeper insight from them. As one begins to feel the energy in their body, meditation becomes a more enjoyable experience. It’s exciting to explore the various methods of mediation that draw from truth, divine spirit and beauty.
OSHO ABOUT MEDITATION:
It’s important to understand the premise of meditation. Instead of concentrating on one thing, it’s about allowing yourself to relax and open up; to be more flexible and pliable. This is how you are able to truly take in & appreciate your surroundings and all that life has to offer. You don’t have to be rigid anymore, allow yourself to relax. Relaxation means letting go of any stress and not doing anything. It involves entering a state of non-doing and just enjoying the feeling of relaxation that comes with it. Take some time to calm yourself and look within. Close your eyes, be still and listen to the sounds around you. Let go of any distracting emotions that might arise. This is a moment when God has come to you like a bird so don’t deny it. He may approach you in many different forms – a bird, dog, child or even a madman. The important thing is to accept whatever form he takes and not deny him. Denying him will only lead to tension, so acceptance is key for the best outcome. If you want to de-stress, learning to accept is the way. Embrace whatever circumstances you find yourself in and let it all become one unified experience.
