Question from Email:
Hello. I received my CD last week, which I thank you for. My favorite
track is #3 which I have been using most days to meditate with. I had
always understood that you should meditate in silence either with a
mantra or by using an object fixed in your mind. This method, after a
period of time would take you into a deeper state within your mind.
I would be interested in hearing your comments. Kind Regards.
There is no question that using "a mantra or by using an object fixed
in your mind" is the most common, and an excellent way to go about
concentrating. The CD is not meant to replace any technique, but
rather to add to your experience. For instance, many of the
techniques on the CD are intended to be effective for specific
things, like dealing with ceasing to carry around unnecessary guilt
or anger (like track #3), changing negative characteristics into
positiveones, relaxing your body, and so on. The Meditation Society of
America is dedicated to sharing all the techniques possible, so as to
be able to help people in as many ways as possible. I hope you
continue to enjoy and benefit from the CD.
