I got introduced to yoga about 6 years ago, at my gym. The trainer asked me whether I meditate. „medi’ what? was my response. My life was busy or better say hectic at that time. I did not have time for sleep. The thought of introducing a new item on my agenda was met with huge resistance by my brain, who ruled it all at that time.
If you are here it may mean you are having same dilemmas and questions I had six years ago. I started meditation only to learn that it made me feel more frustrated and tense. I could not manage to reach that promised Nirvana!
My answers came from Osho and his concept of ‚active meditation’. My research brought me here http://www.osho.com/Main.cfm?Area=meditation. It worked for me, mainly because my heart was suppressed and my life had a single, tough, merciless ruler – my brain.
You may come across many techniques. It’s fine to know that not all techniques work for all. We are all unique and finding what works for you is part and parcel of active meditation. The finality, not so much the process, gets the reward. When you’ll reach that state of detachment, clarity, joy and lightness, serenity or whatever else you need, you’ll know what works for you. It shall all come naturally, effortlessly. It doesn’t matter where you are and what you do.
I meditate when I breastfeed my baby. I meditate when I bake. I meditate when I read. I meditate when I walk. I meditate when I write. I meditate when I listen. I meditate on my feet. I meditate on my head. I meditate on the floor. I meditate on a pile of pillows. I meditate under the shower. I meditate when I make love.
