Meditation Practice

This is what I normally do. First of all, create a meditation spot at home whichever you think is suitable, comfortable to sit. Make sure the place that you choose is quiet as well. Listen to soft music or commentaries (I prefer to use discman). Allow your body to relax by taking a few deep breaths. Keep your eyes open, gently focusing on a point in the distance. There is no need to look at anything in particular. Turn your attention inwards and concentrate. I know it is hard to do this at first, but after a while you will get used to it. You can still hear sounds, but there is no need to pay any attention to the outside world; just let any sounds wash over you. Similarly, you may see movement but don't let your eyes be drawn to anything. Raja Yoga Meditation is not about stopping thoughts so much as creating thoughts about your true spiritual identity. Concentrate on thoughts and feel what they mean for you. Take as much time as you wish. If your concentration lapses at all, just gently coax your mind back to the thoughts and re-focus. Meditation requires practice to achieve satisfying results like thoughts will slow down or mind becomes clear and so on. By doing a little meditation every day (10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes in the evening), it soon becomes a natural and easy habit, which generously rewards you for the effort it involves. Just as simple as that. What about you?
