Nowadays we live so much in automatic mode that we usually look at what happens within us for few seconds at once and then we concentrate on the next task. It is like watching a video on a smart-phone while driving a car! It becomes very difficult to understand the meaning and to enjoy it.
Meditation is like to watch your inner world at the cinema having all the places booked for you: you can soothe your mind and concentrate fully on what happens within your inner self.
In this case, many of us can have surprises. Maybe the movie we see is not what we expected; it might be full of advertising and strange things. Maybe, at the beginning, we can find difficult even to watch it. However, with practice, everything becomes easier and clearer: you will be able to see the storm of emotions and thoughts (and much more…) and learn how to soothe them.
The meditation practice starts with simple relaxation exercises. A meditation session can last three minutes. It is not important how much it lasts, but the level of concentration you are able to achieve.
Meditation is important because it is one of the most powerful tools to understand and train your mind, so to start the path of the Centered Life Model.
