ABOUT MEDITATION PRACTICE

Is it important to have a daily meditation practice?

The goal of meditation practice is to bring awareness to every moment of one’s life, not only the time spent in  formal meditation. Setting aside time each day to cultivate awareness is a crucial part of the process. The more time  you devote to meditation “on the cushion,” the easier it is to bring awareness into daily life.

How long should I meditate?

When beginning a daily meditation practice, it is important to meditate in short, frequent sessions. A good guideline is to practice less than you know you can, i.e, break up with meditation before it breaks up with you. Letting practice sessions be short keeps your meditation fresh while repeating it many times enhances your meditation. As you progress, slowly increase the time spent in formal meditation as well as applying awareness, short times, many times, in your daily life.

How do I know if I a’m really meditating?

Meditation is to recognize awareness. When you try meditate, there will be periods when you are lost in thoughts, and other times when you are aware in the present moment. Whether you are using a support for the practice, like your breath,  or simply resting in awareness, the sign of meditation is that you know what you are doing. In other words, you know you are watching your breath. Meditative awareness can be practiced anywhere, anytime under any circumstances.

What do I do when thoughts come up?

One of the most common misconceptions about meditation is that one should not have any thoughts while meditating. Luckily, this is not the case. Thinking is a natural function of the mind, and there is no need to stop thoughts from occurring. When you are meditating and you realize that you have been lost in thought, simply return your awareness to the object of your meditation. That’s it!.  You may even use thoughts as the object of meditation, or resting in open awareness, letting thoughts come and go as they like while simply resting in awareness. The key point is that thoughts are a natural part of meditation. As you grow more familiar with meditative awareness, you will see that thoughts are not obstacles to meditation. On the contrary, you may find that thoughts actually can be reminders for recognizing awareness.

How does meditation relate to daily life?

Meditation allows you to be more aware and present in whatever activity you are doing. This has benefits in all aspects of daily life. In relationships, meditation will help you develop unconditional love that springs from a place of deeply seeing the other person. At work, meditation will enable you to be more focused, creative, and efficient, while at the same time being emotionally balanced. In terms of health, meditation has been shown to have an impact in many areas, including lowering stress levels, increasing immune system functioning, and increasing the capacity to cope with illness and chronic pain.
