Why do we meditate? For peace of mind. It comes gradually. U get better at it as the years go on. U sit in the silence withdrawing the senses. When we calm ourselves we begin to see what we have put in the mind. The idea is to let it b and not energize the thoughts. Do not pay attention to the playbacks. Zone them out. When we read the newspaper or watch a show we do not let our consciousness go outwards. We sever that relationship with the outside world. We should keep our attention on the third eye as much as we can. This is the strongest portal in the human body to the spiritual world. If we do not think about thoughts; it is half the battle. When we meditate we displace the thoughts like a boat going thru water displacing the water.

Gradually something goes on inside. We r so wrapped up in the world that we do not see what is going on inside. We get so involved with the world. We gain peace of mind and intuitive perception: Direct perception of truth. We get this intuitive feeling of what we should be doing. It comes thru us.

It may seem like we r wasting r time because we r setting; Yet mediation is action. It is the highest action. We just want to run upstairs and do something, however meditation opens the doors. Here is a simple way of getting started. This is the process:

1. Spine erect. Try to keep body away from the back of chairs and couches. Avoid slouching which constricts the energy flow.

2. Usually we feel tension because we r used to doing things with the body. Relax all the body parts.

3. Attention is at the point between the eyebrows. Upturn the eyes. Not inward but parallel and up.

4. Call out to the saints. For instance: "reveal thyself"

5. We sit in the silence.

6. Chant a little or repeat an affirmation

7. In the beginning we feel we have to say something. That is the thinking process.

8. We put our attention at seeing the lite, feeling the peace or hearing the om.

9. Yet it is not necessary to hear or see anything.

The more we meditate, the more we learn what we put into our minds. Irritating drives, gossip and news billboards everything that has come into our minds during the day comes out into our meditation. Eventually we learn to stay away form things that r negative and affect our meditations. When we sit to meditate at nite it will all replay. We do not need that. We learn to push it out of our consciousness.

In the morning and before u go to sleep r good time to meditate. U r calm and not so many thoughts form the day have come into your mind in the morning. Like wise u put a peaceful presence in your mind at nite that takes u thru your sleep where the sand man takes u.

In the beginning u r attached to your life but eventually u become attached to meditation. Eventually we learn to live our lives so they do not affect us and our meditations adversely. If we have all these bad habits; we put ourselves in a prison house. The world teaches us to find happiness in the world. It is fun in the beginning but it comes back to bite us. Eventually we think: 'If i had only started earlier' and had better habits. It is hard to change habits. U don't have to change all of them. One at a time. Slow by slow. Slowly we turn. U know the saying. We get discouraged because we always want to do everything now.

Read something spiritual. At first it is difficult to read something at first. Later u develop the habit. It is not just words but what is behind the words. A quote will get the mind working towards being absorbed.

Get a good work out and u will be no longer bound by the muscles. They will relax. Breathing. Is there any special breathing. Yoga has different kinds of breathing yet u can just breath normally. It is like u r watching the breath and it helps u disassociate form the body.

We r used to the world revolving around us. When we really start  watching with commitment then something will take place.

Inspired ideas came mostly from Brother Vratananda. Don't hold him responsible because i have put my two cents worth in also~the Hollywood Temple (2011)
