      Question: I think this way (meditation) is a very
      good choice. Maybe people who suffer from depression
      and anxiety and such diseases should try
      meditation.It�s hard to start and even harder to know where to
      start :)I think it�s just makes me tired if i try to
      think on the word AUM for example so i tried to focus
      on the "NOW"...not just the word but the entire
      meaning of it.<br>Have you come a far way in
      meditation?<br>Answer: NOW is a wonderful time to be aware and the only
      time that reality takes place, so I commend you on
      focusing on the NOW. Mindfullness<br>meditation is one of
      the fastest growing in popularity techniques and is
      appropriate for every meditator.<br>You asked if I have come
      a far way in meditation. I have changed from being
      miserable to serene, poor concentration skills to being
      able to be one pointed, emotionally out of control
      (road rage and all), to a consistant tranquility. Sad
      to happy, suffering to joyous. And I can only point
      to meditation as the thing that weeded my garden
      well enough to allow the fruits and flowers to grow. I
      am fully convinced that spiritual awakening comes
      only by grace, but also feel that meditation points
      the way nicely. And as they say, if it worked on a
      fool like me, it'll help anyone!

        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
