Meditation Meditation is a practice in which an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefit[1] or as an end in itself.[2] The term meditation refers to a broad variety of practices (much like the term sports) that includes techniques designed to promote relaxation, build internal energy or life force (qi, ki, prana, etc.) and develop compassion,[3] love, patience, generosity and forgiveness. A particularly ambitious form of meditation aims at effortlessly sustained single-pointed concentration[4] single-pointed analysis,[5] meant to enable its practitioner to enjoy an indestructible sense of well-being while engaging in any life activity. Meditation may involve generating an emotional state for the purpose of analyzing that state—such as anger, hatred, etc. Etymology[edit] The English meditation is derived from the Latin meditatio, from a verb meditari, meaning "to think, contemplate, devise, ponder".[13] History[edit] Man Meditating in a Garden Setting

Méditation Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Une posture du nom de Jie Yin, caractéristique de la méditation orientale (ici, la méditation du Falun Gong). La méditation est au cœur de la pratique du bouddhisme, de l'hindouisme, du jaïnisme, du sikhisme, du taoïsme, du yoga, de l'islam, de la chrétienté ainsi que d'autres formes plus récentes de spiritualité mais également médicale. C'est une pratique visant à produire la paix intérieure, la vacuité de l'esprit, des états de conscience modifiés ou l'apaisement progressif du mental voire une simple relaxation, obtenus en se « familiarisant » avec un objet d'observation : qu'il soit extérieur (comme un objet réel ou un symbole) ou intérieur (comme l'esprit ou un concept, voire l'absence de concept, ou bien les sensations).

Méditer - Comment méditer - Dossier S’immobiliser. Se taire. Etre témoin de ce qui se passe en soi. Pour beaucoup d’entre nous, cela ressemble à un défi. Nous avons été encouragés à multiplier les activités, à nous nourrir du "bruit et de la fureur" du monde, à considérer le silence comme stérile. Voilà ce qu’enseignent, depuis des siècles, les techniques orientales de méditation.

In modern terms, “pure awareness” means quantum space, the silent, empty void that is the womb of all matter and energy. Pure awareness exists in the gap between thoughts; it is the unchanging background against which all mental activity takes place. We would not ordinarily suspect that such a state exists because our minds are so preoccupied with the stream of thoughts, wishes, dreams, fantasies, and sensations that fill waking consciousness. Sitting in meditation with the eyes closed induces the nervous system to enter a state of “restful alertness” – i.e., the mind remains awake while the body goes into a deeply relaxed state. Sleep is a hypometabolic state in which oxygen consumption decreases, heartbeat slows, and consciousness blanks out. While remaining alert enough to feel the experience of pure awareness, people go into a state of rest twice as deep as sleep.

You as an Infinite Being The possibility that each person is an infinite being is becoming more real now. Gifted with total flexibility in our nervous systems, we all have the choice to build boundaries or tear them down. Every person is continually manufacturing an infinite array of thoughts, memories, desire, objects, and so on. These impulses, rippling through the ocean of consciousness, become your reality. The twist the rishis gave was to infuse this activity with freedom, raising it to a level that transcends the petty thoughts and desires of the isolated ego. The ego finds the world a dangerous, hostile place, because everything that exists is separate from “I.” If duality is an illusion, then unity will not be established. Adapted from Quantum Healing: Exploring the Frontiers of Mind/Body Medicine, by Deepak Chopra (Bantam Books, 1990).

Basic Breathing Meditation Our minds are constantly active, always jumping from thought to thought, emotion to emotion. Getting in touch with the nonlocal intelligence, the universal soul that lies within us and is part of us all, requires finding a way past the fog of distracting thoughts that typically hide it from us. We cannot fight our way through a real fog. If we are quiet, we encounter moments of pure silence, and through these gaps we can glimpse the deeper level of the soul. Controlling the flood of thoughts is very difficult for most people. A common way to begin meditation is to gently focus on one thing so that it becomes more difficult for stray thoughts to enter your mind. To begin a breathing mediation, find a comfortable position. You may find that your breathing spontaneously gets faster or slower, deeper or shallower, and may even pause for a time. Adapted from The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire, by Deepak Chopra (Three Rivers Press).
