What is Meditation, really? Why is it important? What does it mean to meditate properly? What results can we achieve with meditation? In this class we learn: 1. Goal of meditation 2. How true meditation is about having a passive mind 3. To be passive is the true nature of our mind 4. However, current times compel us to be active, going against our true nature and causing significant stress as a result 5. There is a way to acquire the ability to be peaceful – so that our mind and feelings do not react to any influences 6. The state of passive mind and feelings eventually leads to awakening of consciousness / active consciousness 7. Daily life can be a very good training ground to develop the ability to have passive mind and feelings and an active consciousness 8. This state is the key ingredient to experience the truth – about us and the world around us 9. We learn about acquiring and maintaining this state in daily life 10. Progressing in this manner, we can experience the illuminating void – the state of ecstasy or Samadhi 11. We see an example of what Samadhi is 12. We explore if there are any suitable times to meditate 13. We learn about a special ingredient to have a successful meditation 14. Finally we explore if there is any suitable position or duration for meditation An excerpt from this class: “If we want to apprehend the Real, if we want to experience the Truth, if we want to feel in our psyche that “Element” that is able to transform us radically, we need the calmness and silence of the mind. It is not a matter of “putting the mind in blank”, because this is truly absurd; it is a matter of attaining calmness and silence of the mind, which is different. It is not a question of fighting against the thoughts that come to the mind until the mind remains quiet. No, it is rather a question of contemplating those thoughts, understanding them, to contemplate those desires intelligently, to contemplate and to understand all memories that come to the mind.”
