Mediation is not the knowledge but knowing. Meditation is not something that you can practice. You don’t even need to practice because to meditate, you just relax. It is absorb that you need someone to train you relax, so meditation could be neither science and art. However, you can find so many lessons from meditation. Let me me share some.
Listen to everything
That is what you should know when you begin meditate. When you close the eyes, of course, you will hear better, taste better, smell better and feel better. That could be considered as the problem because you misunderstood that there must be no sounds during meditation. When you hear whatever, you would be irritated. That is not meditation. You just relax. Open. Welcome everything tour being. Let them pass through you even the singing of birds.
Whatever you do, do it consciously
That is the way to enjoy life, and allow other to do. Here is the easy example, if you eat food too fast that you cannot sense its taste or even you don’t even know what you are doing, so you may ask for more dishes and end up with being fat. That will happen because of your unreal desire which your real body cannot
You have never owned your body
This is my own experience. I meditate on the mountain in Chanthaburi, Thailand. There were some flies on “me” and I felt irritated. I couldn’t keep clam and stay still. I wanted them to get out of my way. I hated them. Time flied. I meditated better. When they came and laid on me, it was not my business. I could detach my body. They laid on it but they didn’t laid on my being. My body is just the element that I didn’t own it at first. Of course, your body is necessary for survival protection from danger but if you too attach on your body and everything, you yourself will suffer. Detach now.
With meditation, I could confirm that “the answer is always in you”. There are much more lessons you could find within yourself. These are what I individually have found. I will not ask you to believe me. You have to go meditation and learn by yourself. That is they way to intelligence, to experience tether than believe in any words from others.
