Mind and Meditation (Opinion)
In this piece, the Upanishadic insight of human consciousness and mind, their form, structure and function will be analytically presented together with the description of phases and states of mind to get an idea of how the mind works. Calming the mind is presented as a process of de-learning illusory knowledge, relearning the real nature of human-being and then practicing how to completely unlearn or be unaware of all the new knowledge too but not the insight gained. It will be argued that meditation and calming the mind are synonymous with self realization and are the exact opposite to the process of generation of thoughts. The importance of possessing an open mind, having faith together and being on good terms with others will be stressed.
The ability to calm the mind is of the utmost importance in modern life. Many meditative techniques currently in vogue are intended to help humans to cope with the stresses and strains associated with today’s lifestyles. In many cases traditional meditation techniques are presented as popular modern methods. Attempts to calm the mind will give the desired results if meditation is undertaken in full knowledge and understanding of the mind and the nature of the meditation process.
