I love this quote by Rumi: "The quieter you become the more you are able to hear." ...
Make the most out of your Meditation practice
"Discontentment is the illusion that there can be something else in the moment. There isn't and there can't be. The moment is complete." Deborah Adele: The Yamas & Niyamas - Exploring Yoga's Ethical Practice
How should I meditate?
- Sit in a comfortable position that works for you (cross-legged, buttocks supported on a cushion, or you can sit in hero pose (Virasana), by using props underneath your sitting bones. Tip: latter pose is a balm for tired legs at the end of a day. These are alternatives for lotus pose, which one per cent of the population can sit in comfortably.)
- Allow your sit bones to root down and your spine to be straight, but openthe crown of the head reaches up.
- Breath in and out through your nose, deep inhalations and exhalations.
- Focus on your breath, notice how your body feels, as it expands and relaxes.
- Broad chest, arms relaxed hands resting in your lap or on your knees palms facing up or down.
- Let all your thoughts and feelings go...but don't worry, if you can't, nor can we. If you're alive, you are thinking.
- Mainly: feel comfortable, yet alert.
Observe your breath, take a moment for you!
Ultimately freeing your mind helps you to understand your feelings and thoughts.
