This book is intended to be both a gateway into the practice of meditation, and as a enhancement to a already established one. In the following pages, we will bring meditation to a place where you will find it useful and beneficial to your life regardless of your religion(s), philosophy(ies), or lack thereof. Meditation is for, and useful to, everyone. We have added a simple scale of difficulty so that you can use your best judgment when you consider practicing a particular exercise that we present.
Meditation is a mind and body practice that has a very long and rich history that traces its roots to the Eastern part of the world. Meditation is generally practiced by most people to increase calmness and physical relaxation, improving psychological and emotional balance, and enhancing overall health and well-being. Meditation is a practice that will take you to a state of mind where only consciousness and awareness will remain, transcending into a state of being.Meditation is a simple, yet powerful, exercise that forces a person to confront the deepest parts of them. It is to sit in front of a mirror, free from the illusions of life where many of us get caught up in the struggle of wearing masks and putting on a face that is not a true representation of who we really are. It is a truth serum for the mind and soul, forcing us to face truths that we hide from. Meditation is as much as a psychological exercise as it is for the soul. It is a practice that takes you where consciousness and awareness are front and center.
