Meditating in Varkala


Meditation. If it’s for 3 minutes, half an hour or half a day, don’t be fooled into thinking you need to be sat crossed legged with your eyes closed chanting on a beach (a-hem)! Meditation is attempting to get the mind to concentrate on one thing without interruption. So this could be cooking, playing an instrument, yoga etc.  If you want to try just sitting, try to picture one thing in your mind – a mantra. I picture flowing water or a flame. Every time something wanders into your mantra, try to remove it and stay focused. If you just don’t feel like you have time to sit and “do nothing”, double your meditation time. You need it more! Namaste. Grace x
