Our health and our physical wellbeing largely depend on our state of mind. But when our mind is cluttered with negative thoughts, we get confused and become miserable. The source of confusion is thoughts. The mind produces practically a new thought every second, and before we can process one thought and contemplate, the mind is already bombarding us with the next and the next and the next thought. It is this bombarding of thoughts that creates confusion. If there was only one thought, there would be clarity. Therefore, for us to have focus there needs to be meditation, concentration, contemplation, where we quieten the mind, we stop the mind from bombarding us with all kinds of thoughts. Then there will be no confusion. It is very common for a person to be confused when the mind is active and agile.Also Read – Here’s Everything You Need to Know About Mindfulness Meditation And How it Helps in Easing Anxiety And Mental Stress

If we are meditating and thinking while meditating, then we are not actually meditating. Because meditation is all about switching off the mind. It is not thinking. Meditation is contemplation. It is shutting off the mind. It is a state of thoughtlessness, mindfulness. The goal of meditation is consciousness, becoming the witness, becoming the observer, watching the mind. Even if there’s a thought that flows, we watch that thought without thinking, just like we watch fish flow in the ocean.

A person can be in a meditative state all the time. There’s no need to sit to meditate on a chair or in a special position. When we are conscious of our reality, when we become aware that we are the Divine Soul, not the body that we have, not the mind and ego that says, ‘It’s me,’ we reach that state of consciousness where we are meditating all the time because we become a yogi. A yogi is the one who lives in yoga, in Divine union and one is always in that state of Divine stillness, consciousness, Ananda. Therefore, to get to that state of being in meditation all the time, we must move towards enlightenment, towards realization of the truth. Then we are liberated from the mind and reach that state of consciousness. This helps us attain peace of mind and this results in our emotional and physical well-being.
