      I am new to meditation, and find the concept of revealing my real self very calming and peaceful. I have always had a "busy" mind throughout my life,




      Do you ever have a mind?

      Or the "busy-ness"......aka a collation of racing thoughts......

      ......infer a container of this activity, popularly named as the mind.


      and I'm finding it quite a challenge to calm and clear the mind during meditation.




      Indeed.

      "To calm" and "to clear" are once again thoughts.

      To try and erase thoughts with thoughts......is a bit of an oxymoron, isn't it.



      Can anyone share any ideas or techniques on achieving deeper concentration and focus? I am open to all concepts!




      Observe the breathing.

      Look at the in-coming breath.

      See till what point it travels......... inside.

      At the point, when it repents(turns).........to become the out-going breath....

      ......remain at the point...

      And remaining at that point...........keep on observing............. the inflow and outflow of breath.

      Observe, the movement..........the rhythm.......... the dance of pulsation........... which throws up a display of life...

      ..... which seeming appears to exist, seemingly appears to be so real, so concrete.

      The seemingly appearing to exist-Life....

      ...... in which the notion to calm and clear the mind ....

      ....appears to be a desirable objective.
