WHAT IS MEDITATION?

Meditation is a state of being, available to anyone. We don’t need to be a Yogi to meditate, nor to belong to any special spiritual community.

Meditation can help us to get rid of old patterns, energy blockages, tensions and illusions about ourselves. When all things have dropped, a beautiful sense of nothingness prevails.

In silence, then we finally meet the witness, also known as the Watcher. This is the experience of our true nature.

THE ART OF BEING PRESENT

As human beings, we are addicted to thinking. Meditation is not the art of stopping our thoughts, it is the art of being present in total relaxation.

In this state we learn how to slow down our mind activity and become more aware of our emotions and feelings. We are simply less involved with our mind and more present to the beauty of the world.

TOUCHING OUR UNICITY

Since Meditation is an individual process, there are no rules or or set times about what is going to happen and in which order.

Instead, we can begin to explore the complexity of our inner being using powerful techniques that help to access our unicity..

Meditation brings light and answers to the question, “Who am I?”. It is an evolving process of transformation.

A STATE OF DEEP RELAXATION

Meditation helps us to align with our true nature and our heartfelt goals. As we become more conscious, it becomes a matter of choice to watch, to take action, or to change the state we are in at the moment.

Taking the time to observe our thoughts in Meditation creates beneficial relaxation for the body and mind. It helps us to become present in our lives in a dynamic way. And with practice, this grows by the day. In a way, Meditation shows us how to heal ourselves, at our own pace.

THE WATCHER

Once we have become aware of this method, we can keep this awareness with us throughout everyday life. And this is the second part of the Meditation.

Meditation is not against action, it simply teaches a new way to live, where we are the center of our lives, with more joy, more clarity, vision, creativity and peacefulness.

We are just witnesses, so we become the Watcher.

WHEN MEDITATION STARTS:

“Kundalini (or other active meditations) is not really meditation. It is just preparation.
You are preparing your instrument. When it is ready, then you stand in silence.
Then meditation starts. Then you are utterly there. You have woken yourself up by shaking and dancing –
these are all devices to make you a little more alert than you ordinarily are.
Once you are alert, then the waiting. Waiting is meditation…
waiting with full awareness. And then it comes, it descends on you, it surrounds you,
it plays around you, it dances around you, it cleanses you, it purifies you,
it transforms you.”

OSHO
