Meditation is NOT Concentration. Watching your mind is called Meditation.
Simply close your eyes and look within. Watch your mind. Do not focus, do not concentrate anywhere.
Difference between Concentration & Meditation
Concentration is an indirect way. Meditation is a direct way !
As you start coming back or withdrawing from your thoughts, your mind's play - all unnecessary thoughts begin to fade away and a state of thoughtlessness comes to happen which is full of bliss and balance !
This very simple process of watching your mind in a neutral way, dissolves all thoughts of the past and future, automatically bringing you into the present moments full of health and happiness.
With regular meditation, you start living more and more in the present moments, resulting in:
• Never compare your meditation with others
Every human being is different from the other. Just because you do not have the same experience in meditation that the other is having, that does not mean that you are not benefiting. Meditation benefits everyone equally, no matter how different our experiences may be from one another. By comparing our meditation with others, we only confuse ourselves and nothing else!
Vishvas Meditation is the simplest, natural, original and easiest form of meditation. It is a direct approach to the mind – where there is no struggle or fight with the mind !
• Watch your mind directly
Simply be an audience, an observer and watch the mind's activities, the mind's play.
Simply watch your mind. Watch whatever the mind shows naturally. Do not imagine anything.
All the physical exercises – be it yoga, swimming, jogging, walking, aerobics etc are good for the body. They keep the body active. However, just having a healthy body does not help in dealing with the unexpected or unpredictable situations / events of life. The moment we come across any negative or stressful situation, all the physical health goes down the drain.
