Meditation is a skill that can be learned and practiced. At first, looking for the space of stillness between the inhale and the exhale can confirm just how busy your mind really is. It may feel difficult, almost impossible, to slow down your thoughts. However, with time and practice, you will be able to distinguish individual thoughts and learn to examine the quality of each thought. Meditation doesn’t require you to stop thinking. It requires you to become intimately aware of your thought processes so that you can choose which thoughts are helpful in your healing and which thoughts are simply ‘thoughts’.
We can then interact with our world with wisdom and with ease, getting to know ourselves by choosing our responses to the present moment.
When we better know ourselves, we can better love ourselves.
“Meditation gives you what nothing else can give you — it introduces you to yourself.”
– Swami Rama
