Saw this on Off The Blue Mat and had to share – Here is a snippet:
“Many people have the idea that meditation means just sitting quietly and doing nothing,” wrote Dr. Madhav Goyal, … “That is not true. It is an active training of the mind to increase awareness, and different meditation programs approach this in different ways.”
“Mindfulness meditation is aimed at allowing the mind to pay attention to whatever thoughts enter it, such as sounds in the environment, without becoming too focused.”
While at British Virgin Isles, recently, I was able to have a mindful meditation moment – it was just the right mix of atmosphere and my frame of mind that came together – it was wonderful. Please see the whole article here http://bit.ly/1acPb3Y at one of my favorite blogs.
