Find Moments of Peace through Meditation
What do we all want most aside from all the material things we think we want? Every person no matter what status in life, knows that there is only one thing needed to achieve happiness in this life, and that would be being at peace with yourself and the world. If you had a good job, a happy marriage, and good health would you say you are in peace? Sometimes stability doesn’t equate to peace. Sometimes it could just be a few moments without worries. Try meditation.
There is a growing number of people who are finding meaning in religion or philosophy. Troubled people seek shelter and comfort in faith and understanding. As with many belief systems and philosophies, meditation is a key exercise. Some call it prayer, some call it silent time. Meditation helps by clearing your mind of the troubles and worries.
Meditation and relaxation. Close your eyes and make slow and deep breaths. Feel as the rush of air fill your lungs and be in one with this process. Breathe constantly, keeping your pace as natural as you can. Feel every exhale as well as inhale, as the carbon dioxide gets out of your body, being replaced by oxygen going through your nose, and carried out to all parts of your body. Be conscious of the warmth that is brought by the carbon dioxide on its way out of you.
