Different Meditations will Produce Different Results
Different meditations can produce different results. The important thing about meditation is to feel comfortable and not constrain or forced. Do what feels right.
- Question: Is there a specific order to follow in the meditation?
- Answer: No, but as you practice aspects, do not abandon one type of meditation and concentrate on another for you will become unbalanced in your approach and therefore receive unsatisfactory results.
- As you meditate, choose one or two points or thoughts to consider. For example, the thought of improved memory and the related thought of travel remembrance. Don’t try to put too much into it. Keep it simple so that the mind can broaden and grow and so that the mind is clear of trying to remember what comes next.
Decide what you wish to experience or learn and mediate on that.
You cannot force your mind to become open or blank. The harder you try, the more thoughts are generated trying to convince your mind not to think and that causes more thoughts to suppress those thoughts and a cycle begins. So, the proper procedure would be to sit comfortably and let your thoughts wander. Don’t try to decide a direction or focus, but sense what comes to mind. As you experience this, notice that feelings and thoughts arrive without effort and that a period of openness can also be established. In other words, let your mind wander and then the feelings or thoughts may enter. A mind engaged in exercise is not free to receive. (John U.K.)
