Meditation is the journey inwards, a journey of self-discovery or, in fact, re-discovery. Meditation is time taken for quiet reflection and silence, away from the hustle and bustle of daily living. Taking time out enables us to come back to a centered place of being. In our modern world, the pace of life is growing ever faster, and we are losing touch with our true inner peace and power. When we are no longer grounded in our true identity, we can experience ourselves pushed and pulled in many different directions. It is at this point that we start to experience stress and a feeling of being trapped. Over time, this feeling can lead to complications in relationships and to illness and disease, as our mental, emotional, and physical health is thrown out of balance.
Raja Yoga meditation is a form of meditation that is accessible to people of all backgrounds. It is a meditation without rituals or mantras. It is a meditation form in which we gently guide our thoughts in a more positive and spiritual direction. This meditation can be practiced anywhere at any time. Raja Yoga meditation is practiced with “open eyes”, which makes this method of meditation versatile, simple, and easy to practice.
