Your lifestyle, your quirk
Meditation is a great tool for opening your mind and leaning more about your spiritual side. The best way that I can describe meditation to you is that it is a tool for “joining the river.” I imagine a river that’s flowing with positive thoughts, all of the goodness in the world, uplifting values and morals, inspiring stories…you name it! This is a river that you need to connect to if you’re going to truly find a higher calling. Meditation is one way to find your way to that river.
If that wasn’t deep enough for you, brace yourself. It’s about to get worse.
Meditation is definitely an uplifting experience, but you shouldn’t think of it as always sitting still, saying nothing, eyes closed, breathing. It isn’t that way. You can meditate “to” things as well. You can use mantras, phrases, or ideas to heighten your meditation practice and learn more about yourself. These phrases and mantras open new passageways that allow your practice to deepen and expand.
I use words a lot during meditation and find them very useful for focusing on my purpose – why I’m sitting, what I’m trying to discover. Since everyone is different, you may not find the same ones useful, so I’m going to list three things to meditate to. Some of them are my own, others I’ve found.
You can meditate to virtually any constructive phrase, thought, or idea. The simple act of sitting and listening to your mind’s innermost workings is a blessing, and one you should try sometime!
