What is Meditation?

Meditation is the unceasing flow of one thought about the divine, or higher self. It is completely shutting out worldly thoughts and thinking only about the divine within. True meditation cannot really be taught or sufficiently explained, only experienced, following a long period of practice of concentration.

Why Meditate? – Benefits of Meditation

Daily meditation practice brings peace of mind, inner joy and inner peace. By increasingly gaining control over your mind, every session brings you closer and closer to your own Self, the center of your being filled with joy, wisdom and bliss.

Meditation helps you understand how your mind works, and when you understand how your mind works you can begin to make purposeful changes to your life to improve it. Additionally, meditation improves your ability to objectively analyze your emotions, mental states, thought patterns, and responses to events that occur around you.
