Meditation is a means of transforming the mind. It helps us change the way we relate to ourselves and the world around us. Meditation techniques offer a way of encouraging and developing positive states of mind, such as
- Emotional positivity
- A deeper seeing of the true nature of things
The main thing we learn when we meditate is that we have a choice about how we think and feel. Even though much is out of our control in life, we can always take responsibility for our own states of mind and choose to change them for the better. Meditation empowers us to make this choice.
