An Easy Guide To Meditation

Standard
I salute the supreme teacher,
the Truth, whose Nature is Bliss;
who is the giver of the highest
happiness; who is pure wisdom;
who is beyond all qualities and
infinite like the sky; who is beyond
words; who is one and eternal,
pure and still; who is beyond all
change and phenomena and who
is the silent witness to all our
thoughts and emotions—I salute
Truth, the supreme teacher.
– Ancient Vedic Hymn

Meditation, correctly practiced, is the simple process
of removing attention from conditions and circumstances
which, when cognized and overly identified with, fragment 
and cloud our perceptions. Meditating,
while remaining alert and observant, enables us to easily 
experience pure (clear) levels of awareness
or states of consciousness. Doing this on a regular schedule
 provides frequent opportunities for physiological
and psychological rest, while freeing attention to explore 
more refined states of consciousness
and to effortlessly experience spontaneous unfoldments of innate, 
spiritual qualities.
Please remember, as you read this and proceed to the practice of 
meditation, that the secret
of successful meditative experience is to relax into
the process, allowing constructive adjustments of
mental states and states of consciousness to occur
naturally. For this reason, it is recommended that
anxiety, as well as any inclination you may have
to exert effort to accomplish something, are to be
avoided when meditating. Anxiety about the outcome
of an endeavor indicates an attitude of need
and keeps us too self-centered. A sense of personal
effort or excessive use of will power, to accomplish a
goal or to make something happen, arises from selfconsciousness
which needs to be renounced so that
more refined levels of awareness can be perceived
and experienced.
At all times, whether meditating or routinely engaged
in everyday circumstances and relationships,
it is helpful to be inwardly aware of the fact that
you are an immortal, spiritual being temporarily
relating to the human condition. While in this world
you express as a Spirit-mind-body being, with your
spiritual nature remaining superior to the mind and
the physical body.
