Meditation

 

Meditation means transforming the mind, switching the mind to be engaged in one particular subject, letting go of everything else…

Practices are techniques that encourage and develop concentration, clarity, emotional positivity, and calm approach, seeing the true nature of everything. By engaging with a particular meditation  we can observe and then learn the patterns and habits of your mind, and the practice offers tools to cultivate new, more positive ways of being. With regular work and patience these nourishing, focused states of mind can deepen into profoundly peaceful and energised states of mind. Such experiences  have a transformative effect of understanding of life.

There are many types of meditation and several ways of approaching it.

often pranayama or breath control techniques as well as mantra- sacred sound or tratac

Guru and guidance

GURU- from darkness to light

Guru means a teacher and when we break down the word into beej or seed sound-syllables,it means darkness to light. bringing light into darkness. when we dont know how to solve our problem or issue we are in darkness, there is no solution and we dwell in that condition. then when the “light” or knowledge is provided we shift from the dark condition into solving the problem.

It could relate to our health and when we know what to change or what medicine to apply we eventually develop healing and our condition improves and disappears. Similarly if the condition relates to our mental or emotional states even more delicate with spiritual difficulties.

However the procedure we are discussing is the transition from one state to another called guru. This principle could be only applied to the archetype, but we reffer to a teacher, who has the knowledge or the light that we need. We can then apply that knowledge and change our condition and circumstances fromm darkness to light. The Guru.
