What is Meditation?

Friday, June 13, 2008

Meditation itself simply means to think deeply and continuously; in other words, sustained focused attention. The word comes from a Latin root med, meaning "to measure" which is shared with a word meaning "to heal" that leads to the word medical.

You are meditating whenever you are engaged in sustained focused attention on anything, and according to this philosophy such attention channels the energy of the universe into manifesting the physical equivalent of the focus.

However, the manifestation is not just the equivalent of what you are looking at, saying, listening to, or doing. It is the equivalent of the sum total of your entire attention, including habitual expectation, during the meditation.

Since energy flows where attention goes, those aspects of your present experience which seem enduring are the effect of habitual sustained focused attention... If you like what you've got, that's great. If you don't, then you need to find some way to shift your attention into a new pattern.

Habitual focused attention - I never thought of that as meditation - but it makes sense... and the thing about habitual activities is that they tend to be automatic and unconscious.

Interesting.
