Meditation is one of the greatest arts in life. The simplest definition of the word meditation is "correct use of the mind". It is the process whereby we gain control over the mind and guide it to a more positive direction.
If we want to keep up with the ever-increasing pace of life, its complexities and problems; we need to develop the power of the mind to a great extent. When the mind is weak, we lose touch with our true inner peace and power, and start to experience stress and feel trapped. Gradually, this leads to ailments and diseases as our mental, emotional and physical health is thrown out of balance.
Raja Yoga Meditation teaches spiritual awareness which gives us the power to choose good and positive thoughts over those which are toxic and negative. With the shift of thoughts to more positive and constructive ones, one will be able to feel more balanced and approach everyday situations positively. Through this process of adopting a positive method, one can experience immense inner peace even when encountering external chaos. Furthermore, one will be able to create happier and healthier relationships, and feel more elevated and uplifted in life.
Raja Yoga meditation is a practice with "open eyes" which makes this method of meditation versatile, simple and easy to practise. Just like any healthy practice, the practice of Raja Yoga meditation can be incorporated into one's lifestyle, giving experiences of peace and contentment.
