Practice of Meditation in Recovery
What is meditation? Meditation is not sitting with closed “concentrating” on the breath or something. Let us try an experiment—close your eyes and be “aware” of the breathing that is happening in your body. It is an involuntary process. Be aware of it through the rise and fall of your abdomen for a few moments. Open your eyes. Were there any thoughts in your mind for that time? No? You just experienced a state of meditation. This state of ‘no mind’ is the state of meditation .Regular practice of different techniques takes us to that state and eventually we realize that we take life moment to moment and respond instead of reacting.
