What Is Meditation?
Meditation is a common term, but how many of us know what is exactly means. Let me clear it up for you. Meditation is awareness; it is a state where your mind is calm and silent yet alert.
Keeping your mind free from distractions is key to active meditation. It is a method of training your mind to become conscious and aware of your thoughts without reacting to them or letting them affect you.
The word ‘meditation’ is derived from two Latin words—‘meditari’ which means to think and ‘mederi’ which means healing. There is also a Sanskrit derivation called ‘medha’ which means wisdom.
Meditation involves numerous techniques that help you relax, build energy and develop amiable qualities such as love, compassion, patience, forgiveness, generosity, and concentration. It keeps you in a state of constant well-being.
