When a new real estate broker asked an experienced agent what the three most important things to keep in mind were, the agent replied, “Location, location, location...

 

Editor's Note from David Pratt: These 11 short points help us see clearly what meditation is not and what assumptions many people may have about meditation and mindfulness. Ken McLeod highlights these misconceptions, (drawn from the book "Mindfulness in Plain English, by Ven. Gunaratana.) and then offers his own observations about each one. The article is short and particularly helpful to those who wonder, "What is meditation?" and also for those who have been practicing for years.

Editor's Note: This video is a beautiful window into what an actual Breema class is like. You get to hear instructors formulating about Breema's practical philosophy and see the mutually-supportive partner bodywork and Self-Breema exercises - and it all takes just 3 minutes. If you've been wondering what this Art of Being Present is all about, here is the perfect introduction.

Meditation


from wikiHow

Meditation is a mental discipline by which one attempts to get beyond the conditioned, thinking mind into a deeper state of relaxation or awareness. There are many different meditation methods. At the core of meditation is the goal to focus and eventually quiet your mind. As you progress, you will find that you can meditate anywhere and at any time, accessing an inner calm no matter what's going on around you. But first, you have to learn to tame your mind...


"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense."

- Ralph Waldo Emerson


Meditation


by Dennis Hunter

"...We modern people have become tragically disembodied, alienated from the most basic level of our own experience as human beings.... Most of us have lost the felt sense of what it is to be embodied, to experience the world in and through the medium of this material and energetic body into which we have been born..."

 

Editor's Note: As Dennis points out in this great column, it's very easy to live our lives "above the neck." The body, however, always lives in the present.

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Interesting exercise to attempt to "see" energy. My meditation work, at its depth is about energy – finding it, moving it, feeling it, etc. At the very least, this video will leave you surrounded by and filled with a beautiful lightness.

Meditation


by V.N. Mittal, MA

Inner silence forms the core of all kinds of meditations, whether the practice is one of transcendental meditation of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Vipassana or any other. Various faiths endorse silence as a means to spiritual advancement. In Hindu thought, silence is considered an important element for inner growth. Buddhism regards it as a key factor for spiritual enlightenment. Sufism insists on the importance of finding the silence within...

 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Art and meditation. It is about connecting with something bigger... creating... flowing... opening. Ahhhhh...

 

Meditation


by Lorin Roche, PhD

Body and soul love each other. This is what it is to exist - you are a soul who has chosen to take on a body and participate in life on Earth. It’s an adventure. On your journey, you might feel, from time to time, the need to refresh yourself in the soul’s innate happiness and consciousness...

 

Editor's Note from David Pratt: I have been reading the gorgeous and rich, Radiance Sutras - a version of the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, by Lorin Roche. The 112 sutras that make up the text are meditations spoken by Shiva in response to his Goddess lover's questioning. In this article, Lorin brings the practicality of one sutra alive by showing how he has helped specific individuals find their own, unique and perfect way to meditate.

Meditation


by Roxana Jones

Some time ago, a film director friend showed me a video anonymously sent to him. It was of the execution of a murderer who had been found guilty and sentenced to the electric chair. Those images have left a strong impact on me ever since, not so much because of their grotesque and morbid nature but because of what they have shown me about our global society –and I include myself as part of the whole...

 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Yes, yes. I love this article. Please read it and think. Roxana writes so clearly here how our old methods of punishing criminals just don't work. We are moving into a time of the heart. In doing so, we must reconsider and break down old beliefs. We must meditate, find sanctuary, find quiet. If we can do these things internally, it allows us to do them externally as well and to open to more compassion and forgiveness... even to those that seemingly don't deserve any. If we can do this, we can break detrimental cycles that ultimately hurt us all.
