Meditation 1

You don’t learn meditation, you learn to experience it.

When meditation is mastered, the mind is unwavering like the flame of a candle in a windless place. – Bhagavad Gita

"When life doesn’t go to plan, we must embrace the change and realize that our lives are comprised of chapters; one has ended and another one is about to begin. But we can’t move on to the next chapter if we continually re-read old ones. We have to willingly accept that life goes on, and that we have a chance to create something bigger and better." ~Adam Bergen

We can’t let go of thinking; it’s just part of being human. But we can choose not to get caught up in our thoughts. When we allow our thoughts to flow through us without attaching to them or analyzing them, we create space for peace and clarity.
