      Meditation is the tool that allows us to
      transcend the finite and know the infinite, not just
      speculate about them. Meditation is a conscious moment of
      awareness. Sometimes, as beginners, we may only sustain our
      attention for a few moments at a time, but with practice,
      we will be able to concentrate for longer and longer
      periods. This will lead to your merging with the object of
      your meditation (contemplation). And you will know and
      not just theorize, act and not just react. <br>When
      we realize that we have done something negative,
      like letting people walk all over us, or become angry,
      or feel guilt, and so on, it need not be considered
      as a "bad" thing. In fact, this is how we learn and
      grow. Virtually everything that causes us to suffer
      offers us an opportunity for insight that we can use in
      the future when similar situations arise (and they
      will). <br>The more we meditate, the more we will be in
      touch with the eternal inner Witness that is our Real
      Self. This awareness is ever present, and the greatest
      present is to be at one with this silent consciousness.
      Our Ego situation changes constantly, and is
      demonstrated by our ever-changing inner chatter. Invariably,
      the chatter becomes a source of suffering. The more
      we attach to the Witness, the more inner silence we
      will experience, and the more the universe will fill
      us with wisdom, serenity and bliss.

        Hi Lora,
        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.

        Eve
