Meditation Is Eventually Reaching a Higher Level of Awareness & Inner Calm

Meditation can change the physical structure of the brain, can alter your brain matter by reducing your stress levels, which consequently leads to better mental health and improved decision making. According to Sri Sri Ravi Shankar of Art of Living – “Meditation is not concentration. It is de-concentration”. Meditation is that which gives you deep rest and is an activity in which the practitioner just sits and allows the mind to dissolve. When the mind becomes free from agitation, is calm and serene and at peace, meditation happens. The rest in meditation is deeper than the deepest sleep that you can ever have. Meditation training improves cognition, leading to a better mood, increased verbal and non-verbal reasoning, and improved capability for manipulating mental information. Meditation isn’t just for yogis. Vastly successful politicians, persons in administrative services and business are all advocates for the practice, and swear by its effectiveness in calming the mind and improving focus.
