What is meditation and how one can meditate?

Meditation is the art of focusing 100% of your attention in one area. The practice comes with a myriad of well-publicized health benefits including increased concentration, decreased anxiety, and a general feeling of happiness.
Although a great number of people try meditation at some point in their lives, a small percentage actually stick with it for the long-term. This is unfortunate, and a possible reason is that many beginners do not begin with a mindset needed to make the practice sustainable.

Meditation is a very widely used term and means different things to different people following various schools of thoughts. In simple layman terms, Meditation is the process of closing your eyes and sitting still. That’s the external definition of meditation. What matters in doing meditation is the stuff that is happening in your mind.
What happens in the mind during meditation is a matter of practice and the depends on the stage of development of the meditator. For beginners, the mind keeps jumping from one thought to the other, continuously. This can be unsettling as the beginner typically starts with the objective of stilling the mind but what happens is exactly opposite. That’s the reason why most people give up after trying for some time.

Meditation is nothingness. The state where your mind gets completely blank or a state of emptiness is meditation. Many people depict that meditation is about sitting still or encountering peace but when you look at the ancient practices or at the monks you will know what actually meditation means. These monks sit for longer without engaging in any thoughts or with a total empty mind which develops empathy and awareness of surroundings in them, this is called meditation. Peace, Serenity or Tranquility and much more are just side effects to the meditation practice. When you meditate brainwaves gets lower and in sync to the vibrations of earth at the frequency of 7.83 hz which is called as Schumann Resonance frequency.

Meditation is very simple, and it just takes a couple of days to learn. Once you learn it then you can do it on your own. Then you can do it anytime and anywhere you want. But only before meals, okay! What happens during meditation is our metabolism slows down; whereas after food our metabolism goes up. So it is better to meditate before food, or two to three hours after a good meal.
Meditation is good, it makes our body strong, health better, mind clear, and our emotions become softer and positive. It improves our intuitive ability, improves our vibrations, and brings such a positive energy around us. There are so many benefits to it.

People usually confuse meditation with some form of concentration like focusing on breath, a point, an image, some mantra, a chakra, etc. However, that kind of focusing is just to hold the chaotic mind to a single object, which is actually a prerequisite to meditation. Real meditation starts when you completely relax your focus, and let go of any object. In this relaxed state you just remain empty as a conscious inner space and let everything just glide by with complete acceptance without touching anything. So, thoughts may come, emotions may arise, inner energies may move, body sensations may appear, etc but you just remain as the silent witnessing presence and not get pulled by them much. Almost like being the pond which is letting all ripples pass without any attachments.
With time the ripples will calm down and your pond will be more and more felt in the foreground. That would be a good time to get little curious about the nature of your own consciousness with questions like ‘what am I’ or ‘what is awake’, etc, but you don’t think about it and expect a mental answer, but rather just have a feel for it, like the pond feeling its water. With more time you will realize your true nature and your perspective will shift from a personal identity to something vast, glorious and impersonal. This self realization is the ultimate goal of meditation.
