The Four Essential Principles of Meditation
Part One: P R E S E N C E
The WISDOM podcast Season 2 Episode 62
Meditation is the art of deliberate focus and attention unto a single point or object. There are different ways that you can meditate.
To meditate is to live in the knowledge and grace of what is here before you; to witness “what is” – in this moment. In the present moment you witness a state of inner peace and calm that is always present within you; and that which you may attune to both during meditation and in other moments of your life. One of the benefits of a regular practice is to more easily return to and live in the inner calm that exists within you.
This is the first of a four-part series designed to help you begin a 10-15 minute self-directed practice that you can lead yourself through with confidence. These four foundational principles are also helpful to inspire your existing practice, and to build further on the skills that you already have.
The first of four essential principles of meditation is that of PRESENCE.
Presence is: the idea of attention and mindful awareness to what you observe here and in each moment
This means to notice when you are thinking about the past or future so you may actively return your attention to here... and now.
When you live in the presence of this moment; and for each moment – as the only moment that is truly important; and in which you are able to effect change; to choose; to take thoughtful and deliberate actions, to feel; to witness life unfolding and to imagine in the present what is desired of the future. There is no other moment in which to live from.
