Excerpt from the E-Book "The Mindfulness Approach to Improving Your Life" © by Ilan Cohen
"What is Meditation? I answer with one simple word, Life. It is all that you want; mysticism, existentialism, science, healing, it is all, relying on the experiential, it lives and breathes and is. It is the journey you may wish for and have never accomplished through other forms such as theatre, books, it is theatre, it is literature. It is the experience of mind, nature, God and all that exists beyond words.
There are always a variety of reasons why people choose to meditate. Each prospective meditator bring his or her set of life experiences to the meditation group, each is unique. Amongst all the reasons that exist for meditation, there is one which underlines them all ; the search for harmony and peace. Here are some reasons why people begin to meditate.
“I was always in a hurry, rushed, really wanted to slow down”
“My doctor said that if I don’t learn to relax I could have a heart attack....so I thought I would give it a chance”
“I read about it somewhere, that it is good for one’s soul”
“Last year I gave up smoking, and I need something to replace it with”
“Thought I would try something different, I did Thai cooking and aerobics, why not meditation”
MEDITATION - A DESCRIPTION
There are many expectations about meditation practice for the beginner. Some perceive it will be relaxing, for others, they expect a journey or religious - spiritual experience. The Collins English Dictionary notes the derivation from the Latin word meditari, “to reflect upon” They describe meditation as the “the act of meditating, contemplation, reflection, contemplation of religious matters, and to think about something deeply”.
Generally speaking, all practice of meditation involves
Moving one’s attention to the object of meditation
B. RECOGNISING MIND
Acknowledging that the attention or focus has been lost to thoughts.
Again moving the attention to the meditation object."
