Looking at an ancient hindu yogi, with a long beard, sitting in a lotus position with feet tucked together and eyes closed – you might begin to wonder if he is still in the conscious world, or if he has drifted off to somewhere else.
If you ask the ancient yogi if he is conscious, he might just put on a mischievous smile. But the truth is he is probably very much conscious and aware.
I love this quote from Osho, where he states that not only are we conscious while mediating – but very much so.
Why is that?
Let’s have a look at two reasons why, right now…
Distractions keep us from being aware of the moments that pass by. Meditation helps us eliminate distractions, become less influenced by them as they appear.
Stillness can have a purifying quality; shedding away our insecurities and fears, and let’s our inner voice shine through. When we have found this balanced center within it is much easier to act without worry – confidently and at peace.
“In meditation you are not unconscious, you are conscious. More conscious than ever.”
