Making goal to Meditation is the biggest mistake done by most practitioners

Set goals to success in life that is the common quote among all motivation instructors around the world.The secret of success in life has been made to set goals and work on it but as a practitioner of meditation making goal to the Meditation is the biggest mistake done by most practitioners biggest reason for the failure in Meditation so here we will discuss it

Goal is the desire of mind-

When you set a goal you create a vision you create a dream you create a future a strong desire. Meditation happens when there is no future no past.Meditation happens only to those who are not result oriented.Meditation is the state when there is no goal.

Goal focus your mind power to results

When you have already set a goal than from every act you expect results.Someone said that great things happen only when you least expect them.Expectations make you restless impatient Meditation can’t happen in that state it only happens when you are in deeply relaxed state when all your inner movements cease then deep silence descends over you and you become full of love joy and happiness and that does not depend on any condition that is unconditional.

Setting of goal makes you impatience-

Men,s nature is that when he desires something now he can’t wait for he becomes impatience. Meditation is a seed after sown the seed you have to wait for sprouting the seed and come out from the earth results is not in your hand when you feel that nothing happening then something is happening internally so Meditation is a time-consuming process and having patience is necessary to succeed in Meditation.

Be consistent Be Relaxed-

Meditation is not a thing that can be added to your personality it is a transformation of yourself Meditation makes you a new, person it is a growth it is a consistent process and enjoy it totally there  are no need to be tense just relaxed in Meditation techniques  asana is not important relaxation posture  and be comfortable is must Be comfortable and relaxed is the essence of all asanas described in Patanjali yoga sutras and in Hath Yoga Pradipika.

Be playful with meditation techniques-

Most people take meditation techniques so seriously it looks as the meditation is only for the sad person and serious person who have to forget joy and happiness in your life but that is not the right way for meditation Be playful Be joyous with meditation techniques take it as you are bathing swimming and playing music.

Throw your sadness, anger, hate and unwanted thoughts outside

Maharishi Patanjali said-The mind becomes calm by exhaling and retaining the breath and inhaling and retaining the breath.

Whenever you feel that your mind is surrounded by sadness anger hate and fear or any unwanted thoughts do one thing exhale throw your breath outside pull your stomach inside and retain it outside for few seconds. Next, inhale and retain your breath inside do it alternatively for 5 to 7 time but the duration of retaining the breath outside and inside should be same. That is one type of breathing exercise Patanjali called it Pranayama and said that by regular practice of pranayama and detachment mind can be made tranquil do it and immediately you will feel that all negativity has gone and you have become full of positive mind power and more energetic.

Not try to share your sadness only joy can be shared

Everyone says that by sharing of sorrow or sadness it deplete but sharing of sorrow is not possible there is no taker of sorrow only joy and meditation can be shared there are a proverb that weep, only you will weep and laugh and the whole world will laugh with you. When you are in the state of joyous and happiness your inner spirit spreads opposite happens when you are in sadness anger and hate. So sharing is the only way for joy and happiness.

The great novelist Leo Tolstoy wrote a story, The Three hermits, On an island there lived three hermits they were so simple and the only prayer they used was we are three and pray god to maintain mercy on us. The local bishop here about the three hermits and their prayer and decided to teach them the right way of religious prayer.He arrived on the island and told the hermits that their prayer is not right and taught them a customary prayer.The bishop then left on the boat and he saw a radiant light following the boat on the sea he saw the three hermits are running upon the water waves as they reached the bishop they asked we have forgotten the prayer you t6aught us and ask to repeat.The bishop was astonished how did the three hermits walk on the water and said that no need to repeat the prayer continue with your prayer.There are so many miracle and science has yet to find answers.

Try to concentrate on the gap between two thoughts

What is mind? The mind is a chain of continuously arising thoughts you go from one thought to another thought but you miss the gap of two thoughts there is a gap between two thoughts.

Sit in a comfortable posture in Indian yoga system that is called Asana it may be lotus or half lotus asana cross your legs and your back should be straight from pelvis to your neck when you sit in a straight position your mind power which resides at Muladhara chakra starts flowing to upwards.Close your eyes and try to be aware of your thoughts and try to find the gap between two thoughts then you will see that there is a gap between two thoughts that is pure silence as you will go deep you will find gap has been widening and thoughts are becoming lesser and lesser.As your dhyana will go deep you will find that there are no thoughts this is a thoughtless stage when you achieve that state then minds power will generate than the power of thoughts will generate and you will feel an eternal peace joy and happiness which is not depend on any condition that is unconditional.You have to p[ractise it almost 30 minutes daily.
