Suitable for new and experienced meditators.
There seems to be a consensus among scientists, researchers, and practitioners alike that meditation is good for you. The ever-growing amount of data on the many benefits of this perennial spiritual practice (which, most recently, include improving students' grades and test scores) seems to indicate one thing: You should meditate. And, you should do it regularly.
If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself.
If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate
that is dark and negative in yourself.
Truly, the greatest gift you have
to give is that of your own
self-transformation. ~ Lao Tzu
What is the purpose of meditation? In the midst of our busy, complex world, meditation is often taught as a tool for relaxation, stress relief, or cultivating a peaceful mind. However the sincere practice of meditation can lead to something far more powerful than merely feeling better. It’s the key to the traditional realization of spiritual enlightenment.
For thousands of years, mystics have viewed meditation as the most direct route to spiritual liberation – the discovery of a fundamental awareness, or true Self, that is forever untouched by the tumultuous tides of time and change. And in our contemporary world, that realisation is perhaps more relevant now than ever before, offering anyone who discovers it an unshakable foundation for living a fearlessly engaged, creative, and evolutionary life.
Meditation is a journey into the primordial depths of your own awareness, peeling back layer after layer of lesser identifications to reveal the singular, limitless Self that remains when everything else falls away. It is a subtle and profound voyage into the heart of your enlightened consciousness.
Mindfulness Meditation in Kingston & New Malden
Unless we are willing to look at the root of the situation, the search for true happiness will always elude us. However, when we are willing to be truly free and release ourselves from habitual patterns, anxiety and endless thoughts, we can soon be at ease and realise our inherent natural freedom. When we get stuck with certain ideas, we may have about ourselves or the world, we limit our potential and can create all kinds of problems in our lives.
Yet it doesn't have to be the case, it is possible to live a joyful life at ease with the world and still fulfill our own unique creative potential.
If we are willing to look at who we truly are, then it is possible to access this boundless awareness, which brings real joy and clarity. No matter who we think we are, what path we are on, there is always the opportunity to access this natural freedom in every moment of life.
When we align ourselves with this essence, then we can break free of patterns and conditioning that bring anxiety and stress. The only tool we need is a willingness and commitment to real freedom.
True happiness has nothing to do with how much money we have, how many friends we know, where we live or what we know, true happiness is always already present, we just need to know where to look.
Discover a part of yourself that was never wounded or traumatized, and that doesn't need to be healed, because it is already whole and complete.
This part of the self has access to boundless energy, creativity, positivity and is completely ready to participate in life fully, boldly and passionately, holding nothing back. Learn the peace of Meditation and how you can share peace in the world.
Miraculously, when people awaken to and begin to act from this deeper, truer part of the self, then all of the psychological issues, blocks, wounds, complexes, and neuroses that previously seemed so intractable suddenly seem to dissolve. Now, the truth is that they haven't dissolved. They can still be reactivated if we step back into the narrow perspective of the ego.
But in light of this newfound, higher potential, and the profound sense of purpose and meaning that comes with it, we discover a powerful motivation to no longer fall back into our "issues.
Indeed, as our awareness of this Awakened Self grows, our old habits and issues become less and less interesting to us, and in that, they gradually lose their power over our psyche. And that makes all the difference in the world. In this alignment with the Awakened Self, we begin to discover the real meaning of freedom from the ego.
And we learn that this freedom is not something we have to wait for. It can happen now if we're willing to give our heart and soul to it. If you want to live a more fulfilled life, first you will want to know your potential, who you really are. Meditation is the route to that knowing. It is the methodology of the science of awareness. Meditation has long been practiced in many of the world’s oldest traditions, with a multitude of purported health benefits, and is now being implemented and studied worldwide.
The beauty of the inner science is that it enables whoever wants to explore and to experiment within, to do so alone. This eliminates dependence on an outer authority, the need to be affiliated with any organization and the obligation to accept a certain ideology.
Once you understand the steps, you walk the walk in your own, individual way.
Many meditative techniques require one to sit still and silent. But for most of us accumulated stress in our bodymind makes that difficult. Before we can hope to access our inner powerhouse of consciousness, we need to let go of our tensions. This Meditation Kingston & New Malden website will share all these Meditations.
WHAT IS BUDDHAHOOD?
What is buddhahood? Becoming aware of the inner sky that was in the rock, in the animals, in the trees, in man and in woman. Once you become aware of that inner sky, you are released from all forms. That is freedom. Not that you become free, because in that freedom you don't exist, you can't exist.
"You become free" simply means you become free from yourself.
