1. What is meditation, in reality?
Meditation like many of them think, is not a thing that has to be done forcibly or as a mandatory thing. Meditation is not about controlling thoughts. It is like observing a flow. Meditation in reality, is sitting on the bank of a river and watching the flow, raising, slowing down, changes in the course, every time new and fresh. Likewise one has to observe the flow of thoughts that occur when we close our eyes and try meditation. That is why the gurus or vigorous practitioners of meditation ask the newbies to observe the flow of breath that enters our body and goes out, inhalation and exhalation.
