The Basics of Sitting
The Benefits of
Meditation or Why Meditate?
The principal benefit of meditation which has been so glamorized
and which immediately comes to mind is that of stress management. In today's
world and especially in our society (that of a large city), stress is an
inherent part of daily life. Therefore, stress management is definitely
a desired benefit of any activity. Stress management also means a healthier
lifestyle and a healthier body. However, meditation properly practiced that
is, on a daily basis, can have a rejuvenating effect not only on our body
but also on our relationships with loved ones and in our workplace, home
and general environment.
However, the true objective of meditation is entering
the silence of the mind, that is, when thoughts as we know
them come to a complete stop and we are able to be free of the mental chattering
that accompanies us daily, unceasingly, for a brief moment. It is during
this moment that the body can rejuvenate itself and even heal itself. In
the silence of the mind, all things are possible and nothing is impossible.
