PostSubject: Why Meditate?   Fri Mar 27, 2009 6:21 pm

Meditation may be thought of as a journey, an adventure into the depths
of your own being. It is said in Buddhism that we study Buddhism in
order to study ourselves. It is a long journey. There is much to
discover , more than you ever dreamed possible. It has been wisely
said, 'A man would search for God. Let him beware he will discover his
true self. A man would seek himself. Let him beware he is in mortal
peril of beholding God.' Here is perhaps the first paradox of the
search; we look for the self only to lose it, we seek the lesser but
find the greater. We begin with the self - after all what else is there
that you can truly claim as your own?

The injunction to 'Know thyself' is the universal call to awakening.
Perhaps you think that you already know yourself well enough. What,
then, is the point in taking up meditation? Look again. Look into the
mirror of the self. How well do you know the face that looks back at
you and all that lies behind it? What do you really know of your own
motives, desires and aspirations? Where have you come from, were are
you going? When did you begin and when shall you end? Who are you? What
you think, feel and know of yourself at present constitutes the
starting point for your journey.

Meditation is a way of change. It is a process of gradual refinement,
of distillation and transformation. It is you who sets the pace of your
own progress. It is you who determine whether meditation works or not.
Like anything else that is worthwhile meditation requires hard work and
discipline. It is not an easy road, for you are transforming yourself
at all levels of being by your own application and labour.

meditation helps in many areas. Our physical well-being, our emotional
well-being, our mental well-being and our spiritual well-being.

Blessed Be

Awesome post Storm!

I agree that meditation can truly bring benefits into people's lives and I hope that in the future we can all learn how to practice this very important daily spiritual practice.
