Meditation

Meditation is one of the most powerful - yet cheapest tools for relaxing your mind and body. It revitalizes your mind and helps you find your aim or purpose. It increases your thinking power and ability, as after meditation your mind becomes more clear and refreshed.

Meditation is the intense dwelling in thought, upon an idea or theme, with the objective of thoroughly comprehending it. Whatever you constantly meditate upon - you will not only come to understand, but will grow more and more into its likeness as it will become incorporated into your very being. Therefore, if you constantly dwell upon that which is selfish and debased, you will ultimately become selfish and debased; if you constantly think upon that which is pure and unselfish you will surely become pure and unselfish.

Meditation is a process of searching one's thought which allows nothing to remain but the simple and naked truth. Thus, meditating you will no longer strive to build yourself up in your prejudices, but, forgetting self, you will remember only that you are seeking the truth. You will remove, one by one, the errors which you have built around yourself in the past, and will patiently wait for the revelation of truth which will come when your errors have been sufficiently removed.
