What’s the impact of meditation on our mind?

A modern fad

Meditation is used pretty commonly nowadays as being one of the hobbies. I remember, I was in my final year of mechanical engineering when I came across this entry–a girl had put meditation as a hobby in her job resume. I was intrigued.

What meditation is not?

Quite often, meditation is considered as an act of sitting quietly in some fancy posture and trying to keep oneself from speaking or opening the eyes. While it’s a good start, yet it’s not even close to meditation.

Meditation is something else

Though I should dare say ‘that’s meditation’ because this sentence itself is totally opposite to the very definition. Meditation is a state, which makes you forget the very existence, just as you do in the deep sleep state.

It’s indescribable

In actual sense, meditation is synonymous with the very nature of our own Self, which is often described as Sat-Cit-Ananda in the Vedanta.

Not everybody reaches that state

Without doubt, the state of meditation is not easily achievable. People spend years to practice and to taste a second of that state. In almost all the countries, meditation is recognized as an elevated activity done purely for the soul.

Impact on our mind

We will now talk about some general benefits that even the practice to achieve the state of meditation imparts to our mind.

More focus

Meditation is believed to lead to better focus in life.

Less anxiety

The practice of meditation has a calming effect on our mind, which directly leads to less anxiety in day-to-day life.

Better creativity

Our own soul is the source of all creativity. When we are trying to tune to it, it is quite obvious that it will lead to better creativity.

Better memory

It’s believed and observed in certain experiments too that meditation leads to better memory.

Lesser stress

As the mind cools down while one engages in meditation practice, the stress is lowered.

Overall better performance

Meditation is believed to improve the overall personality of a person with better control and better focus.

Spiritual benefits

Without doubt, the mind is looking for the original source of happiness, if we look into the spiritual aspect of meditation.

Reaching the goal

The goal is to reach the very essence of our own being. If we are able to reach even an iota closer to it, it would be a worthwhile practice.
