Meditation is an ancient practice that involves contemplation while focusing your mind on your breathe, a thought, or an object. It is a practice that can help you examine what is happening to yourself as a whole person, to understand everything in your life more clearly. Your mind and your external reality are in a constant state of flux. Every second of your life you are creating or constructing your reality through what you think about and what you take in from your environment. Over time you develop habits regarding what you think as well as habits regarding what you take in. Have you asked yourself lately “what are you choosing to meditate on?”
