Learning how to meditate is the most important thing that we can do while we are alive. It is our greatest asset on the road to self-realization, inner peace, personal and spiritual mastery, and embodying our highest potential. As a great Indian Sage once said, “That is real which never changes.” By learning how to meditate, we learn how to access this never-changing, infinite, and eternal aspect to who we are.
In this guide on how to meditate I will answer all of the basic questions of how to meditate, what meditation is, why it’s important, the benefits of meditation, and a basic exploration of the process itself (what we are doing when we meditate). This is the absolute basics of how to meditate, so if you need a more detailed and comprehensive guide on meditation, check out the meditation techniques page.
How To Meditate
There is really nothing difficult to meditation. It is something we all can do and master, and the mastery of meditation is what allows us to experience our true nature as pure, silent consciousness, and really delve to the depths of our being. It is simple and it is easy. You need only to sit down and practice it daily to enjoy its truly unlimited fruits.
Learning how to meditate is learning how to surrender a little more each day to your genuine self. It is a continual process that you master a little bit more each day as you discover more about yourself and your potential each and every time you practice. The universe is infinite, and so is your mind. As you learn how to meditate you consciously explore the infinity that exists within you.
We all already know how to meditate. Meditation is the natural state of all human beings, and we have had to work ourselves very hard to condition ourselves out of that natural blissful state of unity with the universe. Why do you think children are so happy? They do not over-think, they think when they need to and when they are contemplating something deeply to understand it and learn. Otherwise they are completely enraptured with the experience of this moment.
Come back to this moment and experience the bliss of being yourself when you are no longer a slave to your mind telling you what you should be thinking, what you should feeling, what you should be doing, who you should be, and who you think that you are. And instead, just be what you already are. For you are perfect. You always have been, but you forgot.
Learn how to meditate, and learn what it is like to be free.
“Emancipate yourself from mental slavery,
none but ourselves can free our minds.”
- Bob Marley
