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.

listening or playing music may become the Meditation

when you listen or play a musical instrument you easily go into the meditative state but you are not in an aware state you are living in half fainted state you are not living in a full state of awareness so that you missed the god.God is not to be found. God has always been there.meditation techniques is not a method to search the God they only make you so sensible that you fell the God.

Music as Meditation music-

Originally,   Music was made for meditation. If you know Indian classical music consists of so many ragas there are morning ragas evening ragas night ragas for every time there are different ragas these ragas as a technique for meditation. for the instrument player, it was the meditation for listener also it was a technique of meditation.

All types of music in the world are written on seven notes when you listen to music you are listening to these seven notes in different ascending or descending order music as a meditation you have to listen to all seven notes as a whole note all seven notes are going around this when  you are hearing piano guitar or saxophone be alert and aware and try to listen the center around which all notes seven notes are flowing.

A musician plays a musical instrument during the playing of instrument he is in meditative state he is in thoughtless and egolessness state and sometimes goes in timelessness state only seven notes are in his mind no thought and he has forgotten himself there are no ego but he is not in awareness state if he moves inside with awareness that may become SAMADHI the highest state of consciousness  oneness of soul with GOD.

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.

The power of imagination

Imagination when you hear that word you think it is a futile thing but in Tantra,s meditation techniques imagination has a very important place according to devotees of tantra imagination may be converted into the reality that is possible by practice of tantra,s meditation techniques.You have the power which can convert imagination into reality by imagination you can develop your mind power and only by imagination you can deteriorate it so imagination is very powerful which can make you successful in every field of life.

How to convert imagination into reality-

First, understand what is imagination. Imagination is not a thought but imagination is to go deep inside with some vision and you have to feel it not a single thought should come in your mind that it is an imagination deeply believe that it is a reality.

Tibetan lama practices a method of yoga called it Heat Yoga in cold wave snow is falling  Tibetan lama stands with naked body in open area and temperature is -10-degree celsius and he imagine that his body is beam of fire and sweat is coming out from his body and you will see sweat is coming out imagination has been converted into reality sweat is real but by-product of imagination only you need to harmonise with imagination and with yourself. In tantra, there are so many methods based on imagination will power and mindfulness that will discuss later

Meditation techniques essence is witnessing of mind

Ultimate target of all meditation techniques is witnessing of mind.Now question arises if just witnessing or just awareness is our goal than what is the need of these meditation techniques.

Just witnessing seems so easy but in practice it not so easy because your mind accustomed to this state of unconscious.You are not completely in waking state.

Meditation techniques for beginning

Just witnessing is not doing but you understand only language of doing so you have to start with meditation technique and choose meditation technique wisely because every man has different Nature on that perspective so many techniques developed one technique can work for me but that can’t work for you due to the different Nature of you and me.

Ultimate state of all meditation techniques is just witnessing

       All meditation techniques drive you to the state of just witnessing but         you   can start it right now there are no need to        start with meditation technique.Every day to day work of your life may become your meditation technique.Suppose you are walking in garden just be witness of it or you are eating just be witness of it.If you can do this than your life will be transformed now you are not the slave of your mind your thoughts now you are the master of your mind your thoughts your feelings.just witness looks like so simple but its consequences are extremely powerful just witnessing is like a light when there are light in the room there will be no darkness so light and darkness can’t be remain together.All negative thoughts and emotions like hate anger and attachment will disrupt from your life then mind power will arise than true wisdom will arise unconditional love and grace will flow from you and you will get eternal peace joy and happiness.

Meditation can not be

There are so many yoga teachers and meditation instructors who claims that they will become you the master of yoga and meditation in that duration and they have developed own techniques which is nothing just the strange phenomena of words and body tactics .

I say that meditation is not a thing of doing it happens only when all your efforts and techniques end up .No meditation technique can lead you to the meditative state .By efforts you can acquire money power and status in this world and there are parameters for your efforts and success but in the field of yoga and meditation there are no such parameters.Meditation dhayan samadhi can happen in one moment just right now and it takes many birth meditation is just awareness just be witness of your thoughts your body and your surroundings.

Start with meditation technique

You have to start with technique and at the final stage you have drop technique just like stairs you use to climb and at your target you drop stairs if you struck with stairs you will never reach your target and that is happening in the field of yoga and meditation all yoga teacher and meditation instructors are struck with technique .
