Whenever people are deep in focus about something dear to them or something they’re trying to solve – they’re meditating. Sometimes deep thought can take a person into a mild trance state which they may or may not remember, just like with dreams; people always have them each time they’re in slumber, but not everyone recalls them.
Religion is practiced by the vast majority of people on this entire planet, different cultures pertain to the teachings that are valid in their eyes, but all religions have many things in common with each other, one of those things is to offer prayer to the Creator, themselves or for someone/ something else that is dear to them – prayer is simply another form of meditation. It is not just sitting in stillness and silence but on different levels there are many impressive and awe-inspiring levels that can be attained if the practice is consistent and without a shred of doubt.
Spirituality is both in and out of this world and meditation is like a stairway to higher levels of spiritual nature. Many individuals have reached high levels of competency with ceaseless efforts and meaningful actions. Depending on what you are trying to achieve, with enough mental strength and emotional stamina you can get there sooner than you may think, but your level of understanding must evolve to higher heights if you are to realise any true potential about yourself.
Patience is developed with diligent practice, jumping from goal to goal without having completed the previous task is a sure way to build a fruitless habit which will see that you never complete any projects or lengthy tasks in your life. Everyone is trying to get somewhere whilst the majority of folk these days are too busy trying to be somebody, caught up in the social hype of being accepted by others – a trait that too many people share due to not being able to identify with themselves.
Instead of following the crowd, how about being original? Spend some time alone and listen to your emotions, they’ll communicate with you when you meditate and provide you with valuable insights about yourself which can be used to forge a character that is unique and appreciated by you first before others begin to show their approval.
Life is about individuality, what can each and every person bring to this life? Something different, that’s what each and every person can bring, a new thing. Everyone would be so bored if there were never a new invention, imagine a world without originality, not a great look, but there are some people who like to live that way, happy to never have to think outside of the box, happy not to contribute something original, happy to rest with the mundane or the borderline and then there are those who recognise the abundant opportunities for progression in life and they actively seize the moment, grateful for the chance to create.
Give meditation a chance and you’ll not look back, it is the one free tool that promises power and riches of all kinds, it is never late, it never argues and it is more patient than any human has ever been. The amazing things that have been documented about meditation and the masters who achieved great heights are testament to this amazing art, there are many deep levels for those who are looking to dive into the mystery that many people are just unwilling to try out.
