How and why to meditate. Simple techniques to start your mindful journey

There’s are plenty of meditative techniques, starting from Buddhists to mindfulness meditations. The main idea of all of them is to stop compulsive thinking and to fully focus on ONE particular thing at a time.  It could be a simple concentration on the present moment, contemplating a sacred Mandala, listening to mantras, or even kiteboarding lesson. You can use traditional authentic techniques or create your own way to meditate, whichever best works for you.  There are no rules, everything is possible and allowed.

 Our minds constantly circulate in between past and future. We are almost never fully present at the moment. Even trying to do yoga or meditate we often slip into involuntary thinking. In fact, meditation is about achieving a mental stillness, about calming mind for a while to creating a certain mental space. We need that quiet space to unwind, to heal and recover, to be able to create or perceive something new.

About Kenneth T.

My blog, My way Welcome to a little piece of my life. Here you will find things concerning my everyday experiences and or my thoughts on everyday happenings. For instance you may find thoughts of my Farmstead, which is as my wife calls it, our Accidental Farming life. Perhaps on a whim, I might just jump on a soap box about what's going on with my crazy family (the immediate one, that is).~You don't need to put a penny in the coin slot for any commentary there~ You may find, new additions to what I call "Hobby-time". Ahh yes, my hobby... I make pinback buttons (some call them badges). Sorry for the shameful plug ;-) *** And then there is the outside the box or "Offtrack" thinking, part of me. Which can be anything else from aliens to the zoology of the Loch Ness monster, but will probably be more mundane as health concerns, for instance, to vaccinate or not. Is the Earth Flat or is it Hollow? Is there a dome? Is any of it real? Do you really want to know? Police brutality and the continuing corruption of established government, Big Business, Big Oil, Big Brother. Can we survive? Should we survive? The coming montrary collapse. There is so much going on, more then we see outside our windows.
