Happiness, Science and Meditation
Meditation is the dissolution of thoughts in Eternal awareness or Pure consciousness without objectification, knowing without thinking, merging finitude in infinity. ~ Voltaire
Recently there have been a number of articles that have come out that once again confirm some of the significant benefits that come from meditation, a theme I will come back to soon with a longer post. What I would like to say about it today is that meditation is not some mystical process, it is not religious in any way. In fact, when we dream and when we day-dream even, we have entered into something very near a meditative state. Meditation is a really natural process but the easiest way to start is to just take a few minutes either at the beginning or the end of your day, to just sit quietly and let the world melt away.
The first link I’m providing you today is an old article from Wired magazine in regards to some of the scientific work that was being done with the Dalai Lama and other Buddhist monks not just on the effects of meditation, but how meditation can increase your happiness, enjoy.
