Meditation is a practice of inward focus, of quieting the mind and building a part of the brain that will eventually give you the ability to control your thoughts, rather than your thoughts controlling you. Meditation is not a part of any religion; it is a science, which entails that the process of meditation follows a particular order, has definite principles, and produces results. Meditation requires an inner state that is still and one-pointed so that the mind becomes silent. When the mind is silent and no longer distracts you, meditation deepens. This will leads to inner balance and stability. At which point, you can more easily act on your thoughts or situation rather than react.
When you apply the principle of meditation to experiences that come before you, you become fully present without being reactive. Meditation needs to be conducted on a regular basis in order to get these amazing benefits. Let me be the one to teach you, guide you and mentor you in your practice so that it becomes a very important part of your life.
