I think I’ve 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 I’m going deeper but certain melodies heighten a specific emotion which I’m beginning to think, while it may be healthy for me it isn’t necessarily a successful meditation Huh?

I was curious what others think about meditating while under the influence? Have you heard anything about this? And similar, what about meditating when you're sick?

Thanks  Smiley

Recently I went without meditating for a while and as a result noticed the restlessness in my mind. One morning I wanted to do so many things at once because I was looking too far ahead and imagining what pleasures I might expect from various, fixed activities with others- I was in an extremely irritable state for being so far reaching and the plans I ended up making were to many. Immediate gratification caught me blindsided which caused my impulsive nature to run rampant and impart suffering on myself and worse, on others. Fool I am, when the answer is obvious. Things aren't as bad as they seem, forgiveness and sincerity are transcendental but the chaos in the mind needed settling- I have since applied some meditation but often feel the pangs of that restless nature looking to escape- if given the time and energy, that chaotic feeling begins to leak forth. My question here is, for those who have made meditation a regular practice- do you think you've conquered your restless nature? Am I just becoming more aware of the consequences of not meditating?

If you do not notice it immediately in your own mind you will notice in the minds of others you spend time with that do not meditate. Their minds are in constant turmoil over one thing or another and it is difficult to not be separated from their vibrations unless you consciously take a moment to extract yourself from them and find your own peace again.

It can be seen in the inability to not let go of the past and constant insecurities, addictions to the ups and downs of pleasures, a fight or flight conflict, controlling tendencies, all about me syndrome, OCD tendencies, defensive attitudes, reactions from addictions... and the list is endless. Without some introspection and peace from Prayer or meditation the mind is at constant battle with the world and others and most importantly with ourselves; that’s where it all starts.

Thank you Steve,

I am beginning to see what you're saying. Every day is a battle for Peace... It isn't necessarily anyone else that disturbs my mind, it is my mind that is disturbed... Taming such a beast has been most difficult. Namaste Brother.
