Meditation

Meditation is a means by which the practitioner attempts to get beyond the reflexive "thinking" mind into a deeper state of relaxation or awareness. Achieving a state of consciousness, developing and increasing compassion, spiritual inspiration and awareness.

We have all experienced a meditative state, moments of deep peace and happiness, just for a moment the mind becomes so light and at ease. We have such moments, this feeling of ease, of calm alertness, in the midst of busy daily life. A mind that is in the present, that is calm, without anticipation, is alert, serene in the depth of our being. Everything happens with effortlessness.
  • Meditation is a means of transforming the mind.

There are many meditative techniques (All techniques must be discarded as soon as possible otherwise they become the very obstacle that hinder the movement of the mind to go beyond) that encourage and develop an alert mind, clarity of thought and emotional positivity. 

  • To understand the mind one must realise that thoughts are a natural faculty of the mind and should not be stopped, ignored or rejected. A detached awareness is all that is called for.

By engaging with a particular meditative practice as a starting point, we learn the patterns and habits of our own mind. The practice may offer a means to cultivate new, more positive ways of being. A disciplined mind can lead to a sense of detachment, giving arise to awareness / awakening of our real self. A sense of calmness arises that starts to transcend duality                        

A detached self leads to a more patient, calm and focused state of mind, which can deepen into profoundly tranquil and energised state of being. Such experience can have a transformative effect and lead to a new or different understanding of life.

 Self-observation brings man to the realization of the necessity of self-change. And in observing himself a man notices that self-observation itself brings about certain changes in his inner processes. He begins to understand that self-observation is an instrument of self-change, a means of awakening. G I Gurdjieff

 

  • The whole learning is: how to be in the present, how to get out of the past, which is no more, how not to get involved in the future, which is not yet and just to be rooted, centred, in the moment, here and now, the present.
