Each time you practice, feel that every moment spent meditating is a golden opportunity to learn and become something very special.

A number of historical and cultural sights are within easy reach of the Hotel, including areas of untouched jungles and breathtaking tea estates. This means both a willingness and a determination to set aside all the other responsibilities in our life for a while, and to creating a regular practise time and a special place, your personal shrine or meditation area, where your practise can blossom. You can even count every in–flowing and out–flowing breath, up to 10, then keep repeating that cycle for several minutes to focus the mind. Here you become an observer, a witness of your own inner landscapes – the mind is like a river flowing and flowing, but you are standing on the bank, undisturbed and watching, but not being carried away. At eye level, make a black dot on the wall and stand only about two feet back from it – concentrate on this small point, your eyes open, with intensity as though this is the most important thing in the world – as though your very life depends on it! The skill of concentration is more easily mastered when you can visually connect to something, an anchor point for the mind – like a magnifying glass gathering and focusing the rays of the sun. Concentrate your awareness on the inner flame – its light, its warmth, its brightness is inside you.
If the mind wanders in this exercise, reopen your eyes and focus again on the outer candle – then once again bring the image into the centre of the chest and concentrate the mind there.
Feel each moment of meditation is sacred – you are following an inner pathway that will bring about a great blossoming of spirit.
A child's sincere cry brings the father or mother to him immediately – if you feel helpless like a child and have a child's simplicity, purity, sincerity, you will be less concerned with technique and self–effort and feel that your way forward, your practice of meditation will all be given to you by the loving parent, God.

In my opinion, mysticism is simply a belief that one can reach closer to God by deep contemplation and meditation. The 2009 Conference is the sixth to be held in the series and the fourth to be held at the European Parliament. Ethics cannot be just emotional reactions, but have to refer to reason and be linked to the ability to discern the truth.
Sung-Joo-Kim voted by Asiaweek as one of the seven most powerful women in Asia and by Wall Street Journal as one of the top 50 Women to Watch. But death is the ultimate jump into the unknown which has to be faced by everyone, today or tomorrow.

When the Divine birth takes place within us, the scales fall from our eyes, the bolts of the prison open. Just a few hours' drive from the Hotel, we can arrange for your tours, be it for individuals or for the entire family.
Challenges other than worldly responsibilities and distractions will also test our sincerity, especially a wavering inspiration about meditating at all when the mind seems so hopelessly busy. If you get up to 6 and then the mind wanders off, start back at 1 and try again to reach 10! Feel inside you a detached spiritual self like a calm yogi, at rest inside a calm inner space. After some time, feel as you breathe in that your breath is actually coming from the dot, and that your outgoing breath is returning into the dot. Gradually, let this image expand – the luminosity of the flame is expanding outwards and upwards into the mind, filling every part of the being.
The focus from outer to inner, back and forth, extends our concentration from physical object to abstract, imagined object and is helpful in our spiritual training and in developing one–pointedness of mind. This feeling will give you sincerity, intensity and focus and help you to deeply value the time you have set aside each day. A special opportunity has come into our life – we are awakening as though from a long sleep and beginning the journey of self–discovery.
Meditation is a gift and you bring this gift of silence, stillness, inner peace into your life when you call out with your child's heart of sincerity, your inner cry. This understanding can even lead you to promising achievements especially in the field of socialization. The exact position of meditation doesn’t matter, as long as this makes you feel relaxed and focused. Preferably, at the start and in the end of the day recharge your spirit through meditation.
Though scientific outlook and school of thought may not approve of the mystic predictions and results, the fact remains that God being Almighty, Omnipresent, Omnipotent, and Omniscient is capable of doing anything in the entire universe. Ali, founder member of Hamdard University, who has been studying mysticism for seven decades.

It is a good idea to be a regular practitioner of ordinary yoga before you embark on yoga for sex,'' says Star. If you don’t accept this simple fact, you will end up panicking in a fraction of a second. You are drawing your very life–breath from the dot, and its' breath is flowing back from you. Begin by focusing your attention on the candle flame and gather all your concentration into one point.
Feel that you are filled with the warmth and radiance of the flame; the light of the soul is occupying every part of you. A feeling of gratitude – to our soul, to God, to life – opens the heart and helps us to cherish our developing practice and to deepen our receptivity to the gifts and benefits of meditation. Another must-see spot is the a€?Kande Viharayaa€? Buddhist temple, which has a history dating back to 1734.
It allows the person to watch the flow of his thoughts as he retires to the dictates of his senses. This is also helpful to alleviate your worries and get you ready to more challenges of life. And though there may not be scientific proof for it, I can assure you the opposite - a depressed person will definitely have a weak immune system.
Or think of meditation as a peaceful, vast, empty sky – each thought is an insignificant small bird crossing the emptiness. If you practise this, you will get results – your power of concentration can easily be developed. You can look back at your past, at what you once were, and look forward into your future at what you will become and also feel gratitude.
Guenter Verheugen, Vice-President European Commission-Commission for Enterprise and Industry, and Mr. It can rejuvenate through breathing exercises, which enhance consciousness, with bio-magnetic awareness, you can use your charms sexually.
You notice it, but it does not disturb you – your mind is anchored inside the calm flow of breath. Closing the eyes directs the attention to the internal awareness, the main goal of meditation.
We have higher forms of prayananam ,'' says Kundalini yoga expert, Meena Nanda, who teaches dynamic life management for well-being. If you believe in God, feel that God is calling you – you are meditating because your soul is responding to a call from a higher world and for this gift you also feel gratitude. It is because the sense of seeing greatly consumes the energy which in turn takes away the sense of focus. So the first thing to understand is that there is no perfectly safe place which is completely 100 per cent free of microbes, unless it is inside a laboratory. Feel like an arrow or a bullet travelling quickly towards and into the flame, merging into it.
Try chanting the word 'gratitude' seven times like a mantra before you begin – over time this deceptively simple practice will gradually deepen your meditation experience.
