In the beginning, meditation is challenging. At first, we are bombarded with our own thoughts and feelings, which can lead to physical discomfort. Meditation is the cleansing of the mind. The more often one meditates, the easier it becomes to find peace. Thoughts and impressions are reduced after a while. The body gives less signs of discomfort. The meditator becomes more in touch with the inner self. This part of ourselves is timeless and peaceful.
Extended and uninterrupted deep meditation is the key to a full life of the nature of the self. Meditation makes it possible to experience unity at a deeper level. Feelings of ego and duality disappear. There are numerous kinds of meditation. It is best to find one that suits you. Regular meditation practise has many advantages. These are:
