Meditation is the practice of training your mind to focus on a specific thought, feeling, or concept. For some, the eventual goal of meditation is achieving a higher state of consciousness, whereas others point out that the very act of meditation is itself the goal. Through the regular practice of meditation, we can learn on what to focus on and better train our thoughts.
As an act that promotes increased mindfulness and allows us to have more control over our thoughts and emotions, meditation has countless practical applications for our day-to-day lives. Eventually, however, meditation also has significant spiritual benefits, allowing practitioners to connect with and achieve higher forms of consciousness.
