Meditation Benefits and Enlightenment!

There are many Meditation Benefits. Practicing meditation is an excellent way to cultivate inner peace and harmony. In today’s hectic and busy world it’s necessary to still the mind and reconnect to the pure conscious awareness that dwells within.

Done properly, with the right focus, meditation can raise one’s level of consciousness and free the mind from the bonds of the material world.

Some very basic benefits are reduced stress, anxiety, fear, and worry.

Meditation Benefits Focus

The reason meditation is so great in reducing stress, anxiety, and fear is because it brings about the realization that you are not a body or a mind, you are the conscious awareness beyond mind.

The stressful situations in life are just events in the global drama that we are all a part of. When one becomes centered in the higher Self, events are seen to be what they are; neither good nor bad. Everything is what it is.

Meditation can also increase your capacity for comprehension and intellect. By opening up your mind to the possibilities of newer and higher concepts, even if not understood, meditation can produce an internal revelation in which those concepts become known intuitively, beyond intellect, thus expanding your consciousness. Meditation benefits us all.

Understanding of all sorts of difficult topics will become possible as you surrender the limiting beliefs held in mind.

Meditation will increase your capacity for love, forgiveness, and compassion. This is the natural occurrence of raising your level of consciousness.

When you realize the truth of who you truly are, you will recognize the divinity within all living creatures. Compassion springs forth with the understanding of illusion.

With the recognition that you are not your thoughts, you will develop the capacity to control them. Whenever there is a negative thought, you can deny it; simply state in your mind that you are no longer accepting negative, limiting thoughts. Over time they will dissolve.

You have a mind, but you are not your mind, it is a sense, and a tool.

Meditation Benefits World

Meditation will slowly transform you and bring forth your inner goodness. You will see things as they are and accept them without the desire to control or change things.

In reality the only thing anyone can change is themselves, and this inner change will recreate your whole world.

Meditation is also a very useful tool on the path to Enlightenment. Salvation, Liberation, Illumination and Self-Realization are all words to describe Enlightenment.

With deep contemplation, introspection, surrender, and meditation, you will discover that nothing else compares to the pursuit of liberation, for this is the true pursuit of happiness, and the pursuit of the Kingdom of Heaven.

The material world is an illusion. There is nothing to gain in the physical world. Where will you go when you leave the body?

Enlightening Lotus

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find anything that agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
(Siddhartha Gautama)
(The Buddha)
