It seems almost everyone is either meditating or seeking to learn more about it. Even the mainstream medical community is promoting its benefits. Could even be the new ice-breaker at social events: “How do you meditate?”
However you meditate, the heart of your practice is similar to the central theme of the meditation movement itself: the desire to simply get in touch with your inner being.
You can even try the various online guided meditation experiences available all over the web. So whether you’re seriously pursuing Zen or even transendental-like meditation states, you don’t necessarily have to go to meditation centers every time you practice.
And if there aren’t any meditation centers in your area or it’s not practical, there are events where you can gather in groups. Like when you subscribe to my TeleMeditations Updates (see the form at the top right side of this blog): you’ll hear about my live telemeditations events and how you can participate. You’ll also have access to my other meditation recordings featured here in podcast form.
At the core of all these opportunities is a common theme, one that helps you find the most satisfaction. It is from the knowledge that inner tranquility comes from the simplicity of the practice itself–just you and your breath, observing the moment.
So take a 5 Minute Meditation break with this meditation video to observe and accept the moment. The audio track on this video, “Zen Meditation: Observing the Moment,” is from my full-length Guided Meditation CD, “Loving Your Life.”
As with any meditation recording, listen to this one only when you are in a quiet location and not while engaged in any activity. Do not listen while driving or operating machinery or any equipment.
