The mind To Become Happy
just recently completed a ten day meditation course. The technique I
learnt was Vipassana. During those ten days, I meditated for ten and
a half hours a day and sat for an hour and a half instruction each
night. The day began at 4:00 am and ended at 9:30. There was no
talking, or interacting of any kind with the other students: no eye
contact, no gesturing, no touching, no books, mobile phones or any
other kind of distraction. It was an inward journey of the mind. It
was the hardest thing I have ever done. With constant, still
sitting, the pain was intense. All of us in the course were in pain,
a pain that you had to sit with, observe. But then around the fifth
day the pain began to dissolve, and I had many experiences of
lightness, and intense well being.
course one can say that was a result of endorphins being released
into my system to cope with the pain, or the mind hallucinating in
order to detach from the pain. I wondered this myself. But now, into
my second week since completion, and continuing to practice the
technique without pain, I can report that I still feel different
from how I did before taking the course. I feel lighter, at ease,
and this is just the beginning of my transformation.
As someone who has never been good at blind faith, I need to
understand why things work, a reason to believe in what I do. I have
done a lot of research into why meditation works. The reasons are
scientifically understood. When one meditates, one is actually
reconfiguring the brain and the way it operates. Meditation grows
the brain, it causes the creation of more neurons between the two
hemispheres of the brain, which inevitably results in greater
integration of the brain.
The two sides stop working independently and start working together
in synch. Meditation also causes the brainwaves to slow down, which,
when it comes to the brain is very good. It is well understood by
science that slower brainwaves result in all things good such as:
deep relaxation, increased: creativity, memory, intuition, insight,
awareness, well being, peak performance, penetration into the deep
subconscious, altered states, enlightenment...
me, here is the best part. Once one has committed to a practice of
meditation, and works on it, after a while the
brain becomes entrained to
lower frequency brainwave states. And what this means, in essence, is
that in time one does not experience unhappiness. Regardless of what
is happening in one's outer world, happiness, a calm, easy, state of
mind becomes the norm.
Subtleties Of Realisation
young age, I have had many experiences that could be described as
mystical or enlightening. On reflection most of those experiences
were subtle and I have since learnt that the pure consciousness of the
unified field, reveals itself most in gentle, quiet, subtle ways. I have
also learnt that it is always speaking to us through nature.
always been fascinated by waves. When I was a child it was the waves of
the ocean. As I matured I came to understand that a wave is a symbolic
archetype that resonates within our own nature. We breathe in we breathe
out like the ebb and flow of the seas. But of course it goes beyond
this. All of creation is made of energy and energy is, at its most
subtle, a vibration -- a wave pattern, be it: light, sound, or even a
composite of dense energy that makes up a physical body and so:
