WATCH Your Mind We are

WATCH Your Mind We are still carrying something that happened thirty years ago. Somebody insulted you and that would be still there; you still hanker to take revenge. You were rich fifty years ago, you can’t forget that yet; or you were poor and you still carry that with you. You just watch your mind and you will see a queue of past events going back, far back, to the age when you were three or four. And all that has become collected, it is heavy on you. Buddha says: If you want to quite the mind the first thing is to learn the art of reflecting. Just reflect and move on. Yes, live in the moment, live totally. Reflect whatever is and then let it move. Don’t cling on to it, so that you are again pure, again innocent, again empty and ready to experience again. Be present to the present-that is the meaning of reflecting. Here Buddha not only evolved a new technique of meditation-the mindfulness (vipasana) but also recommended that meditation must be essential part of life as continuous process. What is Mindfulness? Mindfulness is not an easy concept to define. It can be described as moment to moment, non-judgmental awareness. It is the process of being present during a given moment. It is a highly alert and skillful state of mind because it requires one to remain psychologically present and with whatever happens in and around one without adding to or subtracting from it in any way. Mindfulness is not a process of analysis, but being simply aware of experiences, which are taking place at this moment. By analyzing own experiences one either lives in the past or project in to the future. Mindfulness is about being here and now. There are different psychological treatment has developed based on mindfulness.

How to Do Mindfulness Meditation Just watch your breathe – Breath coming in, the breath coming out. There are four points to be watched-sitting silently, just start seeing the breath, feeling the breath and the breath going in is the first point. Then for a moment when the breath is in, it stops - a small moment it is, for a split second it stops; that is the second point to watch. Then the breath turns and goes out; this is the third point to watch. Then the breath starts coming in again…. This is the circle of breath. If you can watch all these four points, you will be surprised, amazed at the miracle of such a simple process - because mind is not involved. Effects Research has shown that the majority of people who went through ‘Vipasana’ or mindfulness based treatment programs report lasting reduction s in both physical and psychological symptoms. Their attitude and behavior undergo deep, positive changes that are rooted in a less conflicted perception of self, others and the world. The result is an increased ability to cope effectively with both short term and long term stressful situations. Therefore, Vipasana mediation and therapeutic programs based upon its basic assumptions and practices can be used effectively in the treatment of a wide range of mental and physical health problems.
