How to Meditate: A Guide to Self-Discovery

Written on July 4, 2011. Written by .

This was a fairly helpful book because it clarified the purpose of meditation. The important points were 1. Meditation is beneficial because it trains you to control your focus. 2. It can be hard work, but potentially relaxing, just as physical exercise can be. 3. You should not expect to be very successful at maintaining focus, even many meditation masters say they often find their minds drifting, it is the act of trying to maintain focus that counts. 4. Meditation should be done regularly, preferably daily, for at least 15 minutes. The down side of this book is that it is not scientific. He does dismiss those who take literally the sayings about energy flows and vibrations. However, he still introduces religious explanations and paranormal phenomena.
