How does meditation work?
Meditation aims to achieve a state of self-knowledge, which can come when the endless fluctuations of the mind are stilled. These fluctuations arise from our attention constantly being drawn to stimuli and sensations in the world around us. True knowledge of ourselves can only occur when the endless fluctuations of our sensory attention – be it pain, soreness, images on a digital screen, or fatigue, are stilled. When we learn to truly care for our minds, the brain conserves fuel, and we feel a positive charge. Our attention stops being pulled every which way and can be honed and directed. With consistent practice, progress comes. We cease endlessly putting out fires and grabbing at every thought that comes our way, and direct our attention inward – to the strength and knowledge we want. When we direct our power of attention towards what it is we truly desire, we are able to manifest at will. Our “thoughts”, quickly become “things”.
We can become the observer of thought, instead of simply reacting to thoughts, and our knowledge of our divine inner and outer selves becomes attainable. Jai Sugrim Method believes that meditation is the best tool for achieving enlightenment.
A key benefit of meditation:
We live in an age of discovery, but also in an age of information overload. Developing and maintaining a practice to understand our mind allows us to discern which information we want to seek, discuss, and trust. Attaining good concentration is the key to navigating our very polluted information ecology.
