I have been involved in meditation from an early age when I started to learn martial arts in the 1980â€™s. I needed to participate in many tasks and I needed strength and wisdom – meditation was the perfect mysterious world for me. It would appear to me that for some people meditation is the belief that one must sit in a lotus position with their eyes closed. Others may believe it is connected to the holiness or the spirituality world. Individuals seeking spirituality might look into various disciplines of meditation without having any idea of what they are looking for. One must realize that meditation is to think in a controlled manner, it is to decide exactly how one wishes to direct their mind for that period of time.
