The Foundation of Meditation

What is the practice of meditation?

Meditation is not the understanding of the mind or knowledge.

You may already know many benefits of meditation but still can’t practice if you don’t immerse yourself fully in it. The practice of meditation is to engage your whole mind, spirit, and body. Do the best you can!

Discipline is important to bring the mind into a meditative state, otherwise you will be pulled back by the old conditions of the mind. 

Meditation is observing your natural breath and not doing anything. Such observing the breath is the process of meditation. The practice of meditation nourishes and sharpens your awareness. Observe the breath as it is, with 100% attention, not with sleepiness or distraction. 

Instructions for practicing meditation

– First of all, you need to know what is not meditation.

Whatever you expect to gain from the process of meditation, like peace, harmony, stillness, that is not meditation.

Meditation means we observe reality as it is, we rise above our likes and dislikes. In our lives we ​​have a lot of dissatisfaction because we follow our likes and dislikes without listening to the guidance from the Universe to discover the true depth of life. We are limiting ourselves, without allowing growth, maturity, wisdom in our souls. And when you are not clear about your life purpose, it is easy to feel divided with those around you. So we need to observe reality as it is and apply this to all aspects of life to have an objective perspective. 

– Second, you need to commit to practicing 100% to master the skill of observing reality as it is. What happens when you master yourself? You will come out of all misunderstandings and limitations, and begin to grasp the root cause of everything. You then devote all of your energy to addressing the root cause of the problem, without wasting time on what you like or dislike. You break out of the box that limits you and connect to the resources that the Universe brings to us. So, when you sit in a state of stillness, you close all your outward senses (hearing, seeing, feeling, smelling, tasting) that often distract us and lose our energy.

Third, the foundation of meditation practice is that you do nothing and just focus on the breath, observing reality as it is. That means you return to “emptiness”, restart, paving the way for the purification and elimination of toxins that accumulate in the mind every day, such as fear, insecurity. 

Steps to practice meditation

Step 1. Ensure the correct meditation posture

Keep your spine straight and your body relaxed.

Gently sit with your back 90 degrees from the floor, do not hunch your back, relax your neck-shoulders-neck and whole body. Make sure there isn’t any tension in your face or body, this is conscious relaxation, not laziness or neglect. Then, fold your hands in front of your thighs in a lotus or half lotus position to create a circle of energy.

Step 2. Observe the natural breath

Once in a correct posture and completely relaxed, focus all your attention on the area of ​​​​the nostrils and observe the breath at the tip of the nose. How does the breath come in and how does the breath go out? Just observe, without putting effort or trying to control the breath, simply observe the natural flow of the breath.

Step 3. Return to natural breathing

Be conscious! Return to the breath every time you notice there are any distractions in your mind.

Even if your mind goes astray during meditation, be aware of this straying and return to the natural breath. In this meditation practice, we need to keep an objective observation, instead of following our likes, dislikes or expectations. Focus on the natural flow of the breath, which will help you cultivate the purest awareness. 

Be aware that you are not this body, this mind, this feeling”. Body, mind, and emotions are all present here, and you are simply an objective observer of your inner world. From there, detach yourself from old patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and release blockages, heal wounds, and transform yourself to enjoy life to the fullest.

Step 4. Don’t fall into future ideas, plans, intentions that the mind draws.

In the process of practicing, we often come up with very good ideas about our life or effective ways to solve problems. In the process, there are loops about following this idea, but it is still us following the mental activities, not practicing meditation. These are extremely subtle things! Even though we had a lot of inspiration at that time, when we returned to reality, we could not realize those ideas and plans. It is also a wasted distraction.

So as soon as you become aware of this state, remind yourself to return to the natural breath. Observe the natural flow of the breath as it is. No matter how you fall into thought patterns, we return to our breath.

Thus, meditation is not a mental activity. When you do this step properly, meditation happens very naturally.

 We cannot know all about meditation, We can only practice meditation. We need to surrender and live in reality as it is. The more we expect, the more we pull ourselves to live in illusions. Then, our life ends up constantly chasing after one thing after another and never satisfied.

Don’t expect anything, explore everything!
