Putting aside the eastern forms of meditation where a person is encouraged
to empty ones mind or sit in the lotus position repeating mantras. Let us look
at ways we are more accustomed to in our culture. If you have ever sat and
worried over bills that were past due. Or been consumed (obsessed) with the
thoughts of where a boyfriend or girlfriend might be, or where that next fix was going to come from then you have practiced forms of meditation.
Teachings that have helped me over time are:
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:7-9
Meditate.Live purely. Be quiet.Do your work with mastery.Like the moon, come out from behind the clouds!Shine
"Buddha"The Enlightened One:
When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible but in the end, they always fall -- think of it, ALWAYS.
