Meditation Benefits

Meditation Benefits | Happiness | Scoop.it

Through the practice of meditation, we enter a world of soul and spirit, and with patience and training we start yielding results. Why do we meditate?  Is it for the bliss we feel during an amazing meditation or for the results that we experience after some years of training? Meditation and Thinking Process Have you noticed that within the thinking process , a thought weaves into another thought, seeking the other.  If we listen to our thoughts, and observe the thinking process , we notice that the thought world has its-own inner life.
