Keeping my Brain quiet has helped me heal from a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Meditation has been a powerful way for me to connect with the field of silent awareness underneath my thoughts. My thoughts are like bait to a fish. If I bite at them, then I am caught and this will keep me endlessly occupied.
It is important to remember that we live in an “Energy Soup” which is much larger than the world we are able to see. The only reality that we are aware of is that which we can perceive with our senses. Unfortunately, our senses are unable to perceive most of the energy waves and particles that surround us.
WHAT TO DO ? Meditate – Just practice. A common way to begin meditation is to become silent and focus your attention on one thing (e.g., your breathing). This will make it more difficult for stray thoughts to enter your mind. In time you will experience deep relaxation and peace.
People have practiced meditation for thousands of years because of the tremendous health benefits. Like anything, this requires practice.
