Meditation Vs Concentration

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MEDITATION AND CONCENTRATION

Many people are of the notion that mediation is nothing but concentration. The fact is that practicing meditation allows one to know the self, while concentration simply focuses on an external/internal object. Put another way, concentration allows one to know what is under a microscope of focus, whereas meditation allows one to fully understand one’s own life, and how it fits into the cosmic tapestry.

  • Concentration is dual while meditation is singular.
  • One who meditates experiences the all-pervading Consciousness which connects all living things, while concentration simply focuses on one aspect of reality.
  • Meditation is experiencing the beyond – from all the boundaries.
  • Concentration makes the person tired after some time, but meditation does not.
  • Concentration requires rest for the mind and body, but meditation is oneness, merging with the Consciousness and there is no mind at all!
  • Meditation is beyond time, place, etc. It is complete from all dimensions bringing relaxation for the mind, body and soul.
  • While concentration is a forced action, meditation happens naturally. It is realizing the being, one’s own being.
  • Meditation is just the present, beyond all the pasts and all future. In meditation, it is just the happening, witnessing the happening naturally.

Today, more and more people are turning towards alternative methods of treatment and Eastern traditions of Yoga and Meditation to bring back health and harmony into their life. Slowly the understanding that the core of most of the problems are hidden within ourselves is spreading and people are ready to accept that there is something beyond the world of physical matter they can see and touch.

International Chakra Academy designed an educational retreat program Chakra Therapy Teacher Training to prepare motivated and qualified specialists capable of educating those who are spiritually inclined and help people all over the world to obtain physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being through Chakra meditation.

Understanding Meditation

What is Meditation – The Basic Definition

THE FIRST THING IS TO KNOW WHAT MEDITATION IS

 

Meditation is a state of being arrived at through understanding. Meditation does not need techniques, but requires intelligence as well as dedication. It is all about understanding the subtle workings of the subconscious mind.

  • The only way to know what meditation truly is starts with experiencing the silence that one can achieve through meditation.
  • Meditation is a state of no-mind. Mind is not the medium to meditate because mind perpetuates itself, leading to distraction and anxiety if unchecked.
  • To meditate, you need a peaceful and calm mind. You will have to detach yourself from your mind to experience meditation. This requires practice and dedication to achieve fruition.
  • The true state of meditation realizes “I am not the mind”.
  • Through meditation, you can experience the beautiful moments of life such as silence, pure space, transparency, stillness, etc.
  • During meditation, you can experience yourself as you truly are instead of how you perceive yourself to be, and the mystery that lies at the core of our existence.
  • Mediation is the natural state of every being. Mind is unnatural. It is never in the absolute or the natural state. This natural state is similar to a lost paradise. However, it is possible to bring this paradise of in-the-moment consciousness back by practicing meditation.
