What Is Meditation ? Any activity that develops awareness is a form of meditation. Repeated practices of meditation help people gain more control of their awareness, including its duration, quantity, and quality. If you want to become more aware of more things, if you want to sustain that awareness longer, if you want to be able to influence the quality of your experiences and your responses to them – meditate.
Much more can be said about meditation (and I will say more later), but it’s important to make one’s understanding of meditation as simple (not simplistic) as possible. A simple perspective makes meditation more active, personal, and even creative, opening up many more possibilities.
