Hold it hold it… by no means its close your eyes..think of deepika padukone/hrithik.. and breathe deeply… sssiiiggghhhh!! This is real meditation!!

The following was my status a few days back..

“smile is the best reaction to any given situation” I had one of my friends pass a comment on this “ try smiling when someone showers you with a rain of bullets!” ok this is in no connection with meditation.. anyways..

Meditation is just about blanking your mind off all thoughts and sitting blank whilst breathing deeply whereby relaxing and reenergizing your mind and body. Now the blanking your mind part is the most challenging.. the rest will fall in place automatically.

Ok trials:

sit up straight take a deep breath.. hello..? I mean it. sit up.. take a breath…! Now breathe out calm… ok now stop thinking about your boss, about your siblings, spouse, child, etc, etc, bus travel, sleep, yawn…! hello hello.. we are not going this way and sleeping we are trying to blank the mind..

Fine fine.. I know what you are feeling this minute.. I am not crapping or making a fool of you.. fine try it yourself.. blanking is not possible the first time.. it will come along eventually. For beginning, lets try something light.. try turning on some soothing light music.. if you are at office.. try to imagine that everyone around you is miming and the volume is muted.. funny isn’t it? To see everyone miming?

Ok now.. breathe deeply and close your eyes.. think of the setting sun.. slowly breathe out.. breathe in again… ok how many of us have a goal here? (please note, I am strictly not talking about a football goal). Ok goal or no goal.. we all aspire to have a bright future don’t we? So think of the bright sun, imagine it’s a small glowing ball in between your eyebrows.. do you get a tingly feeling? Good we are already improving..

Now try imagining this small sun between your eyebrows when ever your restless.. While doing this.. breathe slowly, deeply.. retain this for 2 mins initially.. then increase the time.. even if the ball of sun refuses to come.. don’t stop breathing.. just keep breathing in and out.. slowly deeply.. after about 5 in’s and out’s assuming that you were breathing with your eyes closed, open the eyes slowly and rub your entire face with your palms.. there you go.. as fresh as the sun.. ready to shine..

I used to meditate.. (Was taught in school) … To blank your thoughts and only concentrate on the breath going in and out.. nothing else exists in the world… just your breath..

And now a days.. Its close your eyes and count … until calmness returns to an agitated mind

P.S. – And ya.. as someone said above… Close your eyes and you gave more directions.. Bad Documentation 😛
