<a href=http://www.meditationcenter.com/ target=new>http://www.meditationcenter.com/</a> offer many methods without any cult or religious
attachments. If you check the Suggested Reading section of
Meditation Station, you will find many books that will guide
you well. There are alot of books out by people that
know about meditation and spirituality and you can
learn from them (IE: Wayne Dyer). But there are also
books written by people who are Enlightened,(like all
the downloadable books on the Divine Light site). You
can probably see more from a direct light than from a
reflection. I hope this helps.

I would suggest visitng the website for the meditation society
http://www.meditationsociety.com/. There are lots of techniques
listed there. Try a few different ones until you find one that is
easy to follow. Perhaps the first thing to try is to just sit in a
quiet place, close your eyes, and focus on the sound and feeling of
breath. Just breathe natually. Notice your thoughts, but don't hang
onto them. Just watch them come and go. Watch and listen.
I hope this helps. Meditation can seem difficult when you are first
starting out (and even after you have been doing it a while for that
matter). Just try it and be patient and perserve. The hardest part is
the actual committment to sit down and do it. Just sitting quietly
and watching your breath is more beneficial than you may imagine.
