Bhagwat Gita is the holy book of the Hindus. Just like Bible and Quran, it is one of the most profound texts on humanity ever written. Every other sentence means something and as you meditate upon each of the shlokas, the meanings expand.
The more thoughtful you become about them, the closer you come to understand the reality. Alas, it never ends. Read any of the Holy books and you’ll find that they’re not really pointing to any God outside. That divine God lies within you. You create the miracles.
Thus, when you try to understand the universe, you’re actually trying to understand yourself. When you try to improve a relationship, you’re in fact trying to improve yourself. When you find a fault in someone’s behavior, you actually pinpoint a similar fault within yourself.
One of the most profound messages of Gita lies on Mindfulness meditations. And of course, the diversity of the subject itself makes it so vivid that every individual studying it might emerge with an all new understanding of his study.
Mindfulness in work, relationships and everyday life makes you lively. Practicing mindfulness meditation is your life’s greatest intention. When you focus your mind on any one subject, be it your day to day activities or your own body or even the flow of your thoughts, the energy will begin to channel in that direction.
The very reason thousands of people find mindfulness meditation useful is simply because it helps them better channel those energies into things they really want to accomplish. They feel more focused, more energetic and help them in coping with day to day stress.
The mindfulness meditation technique is extremely simple. In fact, you don’t have to learn any techniques because, it’s nothing technical. It’s practical. You’ve to practice it. You’ve to form a habit to be mindful in all the activities you do everyday.
The best way to trigger mindfulness is by focusing on your breaths. Whenever you feel stressed, confused or frustrated, take a minute and focus on your breaths. If you want to take it a step further, find yourself a quite spot in your home, a time when you’re surrounded with silence, and sit there, observing your breathes, with your eyes closed.
Do this for 10-15 minutes everyday. You might doze off in the beginning but that’s perfectly normal. In fact, the more your get in that dozy state of mind the better will be your energies.
We’re all looking for focus in our lives. And mindfulness mediation helps us attain just that! Photo by Wonderlane via Flickr
