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.

Active mindfulness meditation technique

                                                                                                     Our mind always wanders in past and future mind never stays in the present if you can be aware of the present moment that is the right mindfulness Buddha used word right mindfulness.

Be mindfulness during physical acts-

You wake up in the morning and go to the morning walk during that you aren’t aware of that mind is wandering elsewhere now you have to be aware Mindfulness for biggeners  you have to be watchful about your body movements and surroundings or you are doing exercises in gym you have to be watchful and aware of every activity don’t analyse just be aware of whatever is going on you have to be practice of it only when you are engaged in physical activity there are no need to be sit in meditative posture.

Be aware of your mind-

Now you have to be aware of the mental activity.First, understand what is mind? The mind is a chain of continuously arising thoughts now you have to be aware of your thoughts you have to be watchful of your thoughts your emotions when you will be present at the moment when you are here now that is the state of mindfulness. The presence of mind to be aware whatsoever is happening at the moment.It will also helpful to deal with the problems of anxiety and depression.

Be Mindfulness during God’s prayer and spiritual activities-

Be aware or be mindful when you are doing your religious activities whatever it may be you may be in church you may be in temple you may be in Gurudwara it may be any religious place that’s no matter but you have to be watchful you have to be aware about that if you can be in the state of mindfulness during that then every act become the prayer of god.

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.

Mindfulness is a state of unconditional joyous and happiness there are no place for negative emotions like and anger your mind will be full of mind power you will attain eternal peace and your body will work in perfect harmony and many diseases like hypertension and chronic pain can be cured by healing effect of mindfulness meditation,

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.

Be aware of dreams during sleep

Sleep has very important place in our life.A man sleeps almost 8 hrs daily so something happens in our sleep without that you can’t live more in a natural way. S o you have to focus on your sleep and dreams.You have to be aware of your dreams during sleep.This is one type of mindfulness meditation technique but it is not easy to go to sleep with awareness because you are not even aware when you are in the awakening state.You are doing so many works in your day to day life without awakening in a robotic way so start with your awakening state

Be aware of body movement or do it with full mindfulness

While you are awake be aware of your body movement when you are walking in garden be aware of it do it with mindfulness when you are doing exercise in gym be aware or eating bathing whatsoever you are doing be aware or be mindful but start with that type of works which need less attention or less intellectual efforts don’t practise it while you are studying or doing your official work.Practice it with walking eating relaxing etc.

Be aware of your dreams

when you are going to sleep some thoughts are passing at your mind. You have to be aware of  that thoughts because those thoughts are pioneer of your dreams that are the starting point of  your dreams be aware of it but it in an easy way not be tensed and not excessive effort to do it otherwise you will not go to sleep try it daily before sleep and one night that will happen that dreams are going on and you are watching them like a film is going on and you are aware of it and when you will be aware of your dreams you will see that dreams are disappearing and you are in deep sleep and in the morning you will feel more energetic more enthusiastic more joyous and a hypnotic charming glow will last on your face and others will also feel it

        sleep-330869_1920Be aware during sleep

Maharishi Patanjali compared deep sleep with SAMADHI highest state of consciousness. In deep sleep, you are in the state of SAMADHI but you have fainted at that time you are not aware if you are in deep sleep with awareness then you are in SAMADHI.You have become one with god your soul is free from all forms of bondage.

These are three states of mind.First, while you are in an awakening state that is a conscious state.When you are in sleep that is an unconscious state but aware in sleep is the third state that is a transcendental state or SAMADHI.

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.

In tantra, there are so many methods based on imagination will power and mindfulness that will discuss later
