Meditation Tips: 21, 22, 23

  • Right Mindfulness / Open Awareness:  Remain alert, attentive and aware in your practice. Mindfulness means awareness of the mind, and awareness of what the mind is aware of. This kind of awareness can be called open observation, or open attentiveness. Mindfulness, which is an attentive awareness of the reality of things (especially of the present moment), helps us develop a comprehension of whatever is taking place, both inside us and in the world around us.


  •  Right Concentration / Focused Awareness: Maintain a steady mind. Keep focused, whether on the present moment, or on an object of meditation. When the mind wanders, gently bring it back to your practice. This requires effort, but without straining. STEADY CONCENTRATION LEADS TO TRUE MEDITATION


  • Right Meditation / Effortless One-pointedness: effortless, steady and focused awareness on the object you are meditating on. Then body sensations, life force, and mental and emotional fluctuations are all harmonized. Eventually you will ascend above all restlessness, into a heightened state of expanded awareness.
