Our mind is reactive to internal and external circumstance

Meditation Guide: The Purpose of Meditation

 

The primary purpose of meditation is for you to calm and relax. You don’t have to shell out money or enroll in expensive sessions just to meditate- you can do this on your own, in the comfort of your home.

A peaceful and calm mind frees us from worry, stress, anxiety and sometimes, even depression. Some people would spend a lot of money just to get treatment and improve their mental health, without even realizing that they can also help themselves. Meditation is a practice used to improve our physical, mental and emotional health. When we meditate, we empty our mind and we enter a state of awareness and/or nothing. A certain kind of peace immerses us and we can focus more on ourselves at the present moment. Our mind is a very playful thing. It races with uncontrolled thought and reacts to it every time, making us more vulnerable.  what we always find ourselves reacting in any possible way. In return, we get to have weaker body and stressful mind. We always worry ourselves about the things that we did (or did not do) in the past, and we get anxious about the things that are about to happen. Like an old Latin aphorism “Carpe Diem”, meditation gives us the reason to make the most of the present time and give little thought about the future. When we de-clutter our minds from unnecessary thoughts, that’s the time where we can have a peaceful mind.

 

Realizing the significance of a meditation guidecan help us achieve that inner peace. We detach ourselves from all the worries and troubles and we just focus on ourselves, for at least a few minutes everyday. When this becomes a habit, we tend to better ourselves thus making a more positive note not just for yourself, but for the people around you too.
