    In school I openly confessed that I regularly meditate to spark the interest of my peers on the topic and to tell them about the benefits of meditation. What happened when I simply said that I meditate was that I was laughed at and mocked. They don't even know what meditation is and yet they still laugh at me like I'm some kind of fool. Seems like some among us have lost the uninhibited curiosity we all inherited as children...

    Any advice on how and what to do? I didn't even know what meditation actually was until today and I'm keen to get started. You basically just sit quietly, focus on your breathing and let any thoughts that crop up pass by, right?

    WRONG! meditation is not an exercice..... is the lack of exercises, it is not something you do with your mind (remember what I just said "you" and "your mind") meditation (dhyana) is not concentration (dharana), meditation is being just observing existence with full restfull awareness, and being just observing makes your mind to pause cause it is not being used.... so *YOU can detach from *BODY/MIND :DDD .......but nice try

    I’m not sure whether I’m a beginner, because I’ve meditated a few times already, but I’ve never searched up tips on meditating until now, so I might meditate for 20-30 minuets this time. Also, is okay to blink a little with my eyes closed while meditating, or is it distracting/something that I will stop doing later on?

  • Chucc Chucc

    I just finished my first 20 minute meditation and I'm happy that I completed this goal, but the only problem I was facing was that my legs and knees was constantly shaking causing me to hurt but every time my drift I immediately changed my thoughts to my breathing which helped me get through it. Now that I'm done my knees and hurting bad from sitting with my feet on top of each other.

    meditation in Greek is "Διαλογισμός" deriving from "δια + λόγος" which literally means "dividing thought", that means the real purpose of meditating is not focusing on something but instead focusing on nothing, just an absence of thought
    this can be really hard and takes lots of practice but this is what real meditation is like
