Please, be quiet…I am learning to meditate

“Meditation is the dissolution of thoughts in Eternal awareness or Pure consciousness without objectification, knowing without thinking, merging finitude in infinity.” 
Swami Sivananda

This blog is in some strange way, a map for the inner journey towards self-knowledge I have begun, recently.  As such, it has led me to discover many things about myself, I did not even know I was looking for.  A while ago, I wrote a post, all about the inside voices keeping me constant company, and how I was looking to find solutions to quiet them.   After having bought myself a book that was calling my name, on our beautiful trip to the city , meditation started to appear on everything I was reading, whether on pages or on the net.  I knew then, I needed to start learning more about it.

Before you know it, I found exactly what I was looking for; Click and you’ll see , a really nice video for any beginner interested in knowing how to meditate.

To stay honest, I should mention I am still in the very beginning stages of learning how to meditate, this is however something I intend to keep doing, as a long-term project, because the inner whisper in my head, is telling me I am on the right path… It happened, I was ready and the teacher appeared

Have you tried meditating? Let me know how it went for you…

  1. I just started my meditation ptocess and I am still in the beginning stages…my mind does not seem to want to be quieted down, but it appears to be a normal occurrence. I am glad you like the path I am on, honestly I am surprised at the direction it all seems to take I am enjoying the ride, though and I am very happy to have you alongside me :-)Thank you

  2. Hope you are enjoying your meditation. I started meditation practice in the early 90's and then for some odd reason just got out the routine. I started day dreaming instead. It reminded me of when I was a child and would sit on my swing set for long lengths of time. I would imagine life as a grown up and it's funny because I do have this life I imagined now. So I decided to daydream instead of meditate somewhere in the late 90's. My neighbor actually installed a swing in her basement just for this purpose. It's like propelling forward with each motion…toward what it is that I'm trying to create. I must admit it is harder as an adult (57 yrs) young to picture where my life is going because I've achieved most everything I set out toward in the forward motion of swing time. So now it is more like a reinvention of myself. Quieting the mind was good for a time though, and I probably should get back into practice.Thanks for the inspiration to do so. And I hope you continue on your path…it's a privilege to accompany you on this journey. Thank you for sharing. I look forward to where your journey takes you.
