The purposes of meditation and the reasons why many folks from around the world go through with it are well known. The most basic reason for trying out some form of meditation or another is to try and relax or offload stress from the working day. Even strenuous physical exercise is regarded as a form of meditation. Most Americans make an effort to do this over weekends, many more around the world are privileged enough to do this as well. They hop into their cars and go for long drives out in the country.
But is driving your car any use? After all, you are already spending many hours of your week doing just that. Exercise in general requires of you to call up all or most of your body and mind’s resources, so it is just as good as putting in all your efforts at work. The most effective meditative technique is the ability to sit very still indeed. You do not need to be a guru to get this right. If you are near to a beach, you can sit close to the sea with legs folded and arms and hands open wide, close your eyes and peacefully listen to the ocean’s waves crashing against the shoreline.
If there is no beach close to home, there might be a river stream within walking distance. If not that, there is still your public garden where even the practice of just sitting on the park bench, closing your eyes and listening to the sounds that the birds and its favorite tree branches make, that might work for you. Many folks swear by that routine. But then there are your cynics, they do have good cause to be so sometimes, that will say that you could easily get mugged in the quiet park. More stress to add to your day’s woes.
