I think Iíve read of those who could pace back and forwarth, meditating at the same time. I was wondering, is it possible to meditate while walking around outside?

Some people will say they meditate by fishing or playing golf as well. However we must ask the question do you also make a living by playing games on the internet all day while closing financial deals? The point is that meditation requires focus and attention. A Master can give focus, attention and awareness to any situation therefore they are in a state of meditation always. Being in that state of awareness is not something that can be accomplished by keeping the body in a constant state of restlessness and motion. Silence and spiritual awareness develops from within and slowly becomes a part of ones conscious awareness at all times even in most exacting duties.

There are many ways of accomplishing this including what the Buddhists describe as walking meditation practice. However we must also recognize that those practicing this type of walking meditation do so between long periods of 'sitting' meditation in which the body in all its distractions is quieted so that the consciousness can experience inner realization and higher awareness without sensory distraction.

Thanks for the reply.

I tried meditating today but my thoughts really seemed to take over. At one point my back hurt so I layed on my back. At another point I drifted off into the past and tried to relive really sweet moments thinking I could send love and gratitude. I would keep coming back to my breath but after 40 minutes my leg fell asleep and I had to start moving around. I am grateful for the experience but noticed my mind was very chatty this time around. I also started to daydream where I hadn't much awareness of the thoughts playing, kind of like they started having a life of their own and I felt too drained to recall what was going on.

It helps to have techniques for bringing energy up and down your astral spine and centering energy in the chakras. It is much like driving a car...in the sense that u never can drift off to long because u would cease to be driving.

Today I felt more tapped into a meditative state while listening to music with lyrics as opposed to the silence. Is this proper meditation? I don't know because I felt more tapped into a particular emotion actually but it was calm and there was room to explore in this state.

Lyrics distract me in meditation but maybe that's because i channel poetry. But if i listen to new age music and some classical music i often get pulled into that restful state between sleep and meditation. If i can just stay focused then... sometimes i go deeper then without the music.

Thanks Steve, I know Iím going deeper but certain melodies heighten a specific emotion which Iím beginning to think, while it may be healthy for me it isnít necessarily a successful meditation Huh?
