Meditation has always been associated with the solitude, tranquility and physical inactivity. When one talks about meditation, usually you can come with a scenario in which a person is an isolated area, closed his eyes in silence and based his body while working in his mind. Meditation always has to be the case?
Meditation is an art. A method. A skill. A process. It is the art of staying in touch with you, discovered in its entirety and the many facets of your being. It is also a skill that must be developed. It requires discipline and proper mental attitude. Just don’t think meditate and that hopes to achieve a result right after. This requires the setting of the conscience. Meditation usually involves a set of procedures and guidelines to follow. Normally, the success of the activity will depend on adherence to the rules and certain principles.
An interesting form of meditation that deviates the ancient and traditional concept is walking meditation. Walking meditation is very different from other forms of meditation, known by many. For its part, you won’t have that physically inactive to do so. Indeed, it is necessary to move and be active – have to walk! You have to participate actively your mind and your body in this activity to be able to experience a positive integral. This brings other benefits. Since walking is a daily activity, which can actually grows by daily meditation!
Also won’t have to find an isolated place, only then can meditate. Anywhere will do. In fact, one noisy, busy is even encouraged. This is where the challenge lies. Concentration is important and should be given the awareness. You should not be allowed to the outside world link your mind – things to see, hear, or what is perceived. You may be aware of them, but you should protect not do anything about them. They do not cling to anything.
The guiding principle of walking meditation is to achieve a balanced awareness, balance, between his being inside and the outside world around them. This meditation will be invited to sit its whole body, all the functioning of the parties that make, knowing how each of their parts of the body. In so doing, he also has his emotion and mood. These are carried out while walking. The outside world is not to be missed in his approach. There will always be animal that will reach your attention as you meditate, and not to resist. You are not to keep these, however. You have to pass by, observe them without doing anything at all.
This is the true meaning of consciousness. The ideal result of walking meditation is the consciousness of the person from the outside world while he is fully aware of your inner self. When this is done, many of the puzzles and complexities of life will be clearer and simpler. By the gap between what is inside and outside of itself, you can take complete control of your life and enjoy a healthy and a more satisfied lifestyle.
