Information given in these pages is General, it is good to consult a
teacher or an authorized person (as a doctor or an instructor)
before starting to practice intensively. while meditating it is better
to have all the physical needs met before, and not to "expect"
anything to happen (like to succeed, to wish for a specific
sensation, silence or "enlightenment"...) if a sensation arises
which we had not expected, or thoughts come, better just observe
them with no reaction... here... thoughts are coming again... if a
reaction arises, watch the reaction... there is no point to try and
control what arises by itself, just watch it and bring you attention
back to the focus of your meditation as much as you can.
There are many "techniques". for me
meditation is being "one" with something, and then disappearing into it...
it could be what you are doing (tai chi, music, standing, sitting, walking,
cooking, eating) The body or an element in nature (flower, tree, river), an
idea or a quality you wish to strengthen in your life, or even the entire
universe. At some point you just "stop" doing and being just pours through
you. It is peaceful and deep, and also a very creative state since
no one is
interrupting creativity from doing its "thing"... you know this state from
being in love, or doing something you love... bringing this state into
anything we do in life and into as many moments of our lives, is the magic
and the happiness of it... simple yet deep.
