La meditación es una disciplina a través de la cual se intenta ir más allá del pensamiento condicionado para alcanzar un estado profundo de conciencia. El objetivo principal de la meditación es concentrarte y poco a poco relajar tu mente hasta liberar tu conciencia. Según vas progresando, notarás que puedes meditar en cualquier sitio y en cualquier momento, logrando la paz interior a pesar de lo que esté pasando a tu alrededor. Notarás además que puedes controlar mejor tu forma de reaccionar ante las cosas a medida que te vuelves más consciente de tus pensamientos (por ejemplo, liberándote del enojo), pero primero tienes que aprender a dominar tu mente y controlar tu respiración.

there is a huge difference between what is called Manolaya and Manonasa. Most people who say they meditate sit down and try practices that produce manolaya, which is temporary stillness of thought. this is brought about by awareness practices such as vipassana and others. this can give a glimpse of why the thought "I am meditating" is false and vain. However, practices like Self Enquiry (as taught by Sri Ramana Maharshi, Papaji, Mooji) and Self Remembering (Gurdjieff, Ouspensky), show you that you are not the mind. In these practices one realizes the self as a silent portion of consciousness itself (there are no words to describe), experiencing the mind and body and being-ness. If this sounds distant and unreachable, think back to your childhood and remember how it felt as though life is a movie.

So for years, I’ve been making a mental note of new studies showing that meditation can literally change our brain structure in ways that might boost concentration, memory, and positive emotions.

Pretty daunting. Well, a new study offers some hope—and makes the benefits of meditation seem within reach even for a novice like me.
