The idea of meditation is simple so it seems like an easy thing to do but because it is so “easy” it’s hard. Because of this simplicity of it, it makes it difficult to find time to incorporate it into our everyday busy lives, or so we think. In this world we can have constant stimulation, so we find it difficult to sit still with ourselves and our thoughts. But when we explore this stillness, is when we really find out about our true self. Through meditation we become aware of our thought patterns and habitual patterns of our ego.
The more we explore the upper realms of our psyche, the more we need to establish a connection to earth so we do not become lost within the inner workings of our mind. Grounding is bringing ourselves back to earth, bringing us back to feeling at home in the density of this physical reality. It is easy to be lost in thought and lose our connection with our surroundings. The more we ground, the better we will be able to maintain in the present moment.
Meditation itself is a fairly simple concept, an act of “being” you could say. Though meditation can be seen as the path to enlightenment, that is an incomplete portrayal of its true essence. Mediation is the practice of coming back to the present moment over and over. As this habit grows, it will allow us to reach a higher state of awareness. When we can live in the present moment in every thing that we do, that is when we become a truly “enlightened” being.
