Meditation develops mindfulness, which is equal consideration for others in your being. It is demonstrated by thinking, feeling and actions in the present moment. It is an energy state of being that evolves quite naturally with insight meditation practice. When a meditator gains the ability to practice continuous meditation then he will find himself in the present moment all of the time. Consequently and quite naturally he will also gain the ability able to find present time solutions with present time problems more easily.
When we first begin to think about meditation then thoughts arise of needing to go to a monastery for instruction. Certainly the easiest way to start is to attend a ten day meditation course. These days meditation courses are far more widely available so there is no need to trek all the way to the Himalayas to start your meditation career.
All average humanity is trapped within a bottle the bubble of illusion. Serious meditation is a process of consciously activating Oversoul energy. Which is only source of power available to facilitate a permanent change in energy state.
Every individual has the choice to hide behind a facade; which maintains the power of the ego living a life in the pattern of illusion. Or walk the spiritual path and face what their own soul light would reveal; to eventually become enlightened. Spiritual path information presents the same choice; which is before us all.
Young people who find spiritual path early in life may discover that serious meditation is easier to implement with far better results. Consequently serious meditation practice from an early age will prevent many health problems and structural deformities before they would normally occur later in life.
Meditation is defined as the conscious or awareness process of increasing energy while dissolving resistance. As the level of energy increases; there is a co-responding reduction in the level of resistance. Consequently awareness will rise. Gaining maturity in meditation practice is the only way to achieve a completely conscious life. This means that you come to know and understand how life works!
