What is meditation?
It’s a very natural state of mind.
The mind is “between things”.
It’s a state necessary for change to happen.
Common misconceptions about meditation:
It’s agitation of or work for the mind.
It isn’t. It’s learning how your mind works.
“I should meditate each day. I want to get into the habit.”
Don’t even start meditating if that’s your approach. Meditation is an antidote to habit.
I need a quiet, peaceful room for it.
In the beginning, yes. For later on I recommend the back of an open truck or a schoolyard at lunch break.
“I will become a better person if I meditate.”
No, but you might learn how to be you properly.
Never forget this:
Meditation and spiritual practice are a big scam.
Becoming addicted to meditation is about as bad as doing none at all.
