Basics of Meditation
The principle method of meditation is to sit cross-legged and close your eyes (for that makes it easier, you can also sit on a chair, lie or even walk), concentrate on your breathing (an object every human being has available at no cost) and be aware. Naturally your concentration
will be distracted by thoughts, feelings or sensations in general. The Vipassana method let’s you ask three questions: 1 what is it? 2 how strong is it? 3 how long does it take? Before gently redirecting your focus on the breathing.
Don't be too harsh on yourself.
If you can discipline yourself to a daily try no matter how long, just an honest try, you are on
the right path.
