Spiritual discovery is something that has required meditation for many years; the journey is a long one and is best undergone with meditation at the forefront. Many think that the word meditation refers to the practice of disciplining and training one’s mind, this can be slightly misleading, as it also refers more correctly to a state of mind, an internal experience of being one can discover. In the raja-yoga tradition, meditation is the seventh limb of an eight-limbed path; referring to the fact that a person needs to travel down a path of much preparation before the state of meditation is reached. While there is no clear line between those sections, one thing is clear: without the necessary preparation, one cannot reach a state of meditation.
Meditation is a State of Mind that exists within all of us
Meditation can be achieved through mental discipline, but the word achieve here is often misunderstood. A person needs to travel down a road of preparation before beginning meditation techniques. To be able to reach a state of meditation, one must concentrate; continuous concentration without disruption is key. Without the necessary preparation and concentration, one cannot reach a state of meditation.
Meditation is completely natural and something everyone is able to achieve, and just like anything in life, if one puts his or her mind to it, one can accomplish that goal, it is within us all. Although the road of learning the art of a particular thing, for instance meditation, may be a long struggle, it is truly something that will be beneficial for your life. Results of meditation tend not to be immediate but, when you do see results, they will be worth it and the more you practice your medication techniques, the more you will benefit.
