Why We Should Meditate ?
....Meditation is knowing the mind, shaping the mind, and freeing the
mind. Knowing the mind is understanding how the mind is working. ....
Experience the present moment
..... mindfulness helps us to experience the present moment, the here and the now. Most of the time during the day we either live in the past, thinking about what has happened, or we live in the future, dwelling on what is going to happen.....
....One thing we can discover is that our thoughts arise mechanically. They just pop up. .... some thoughts we allow just to arise and pass away, while others, we get hold of them......

Know what is happening
...... when we are practicing this technique, we should learn just to know,
just to be mindful, just to be conscious of what is happening in the mind.....
Life becomes your teacher
... I have had the good fortune to meet many masters, many gurus, many teachers from many traditions. Do you know which master, which guru has most inspired me? It is life itself. Life is our best teacher...

'' Are the thoughts mostly about the past? Are
they mostly about the future? Are the thoughts racing one after another?
Are they slowing down? Is there space between two thoughts? Do you get
involved in some thoughts? Do you judge your thoughts? Make your own
discoveries about the different aspects, about the different dimensions,
about the structure of your thoughts '' - Godwin Samararathne
