Secret Meditation

Secret Meditation

Meditation in Zen Buddhism will not climax in discovery of internal areas or conditions of a mind separated from the outside world. Zen is about man’s unison with reality. The habit of projecting oneself into the future, wanting to achieve something for a state yet to be, to fight, is set aside in Zen Buddhism. Instead, it is all about the mindful handling of all which is present and real right now.

Traditional Zen practices result in complete clearance of one’s self and transition into presence, uniting all seemingly contradictory single aspects to one. The borders between one’s self and the outside as well as all contrasts dissolve. Zazen (sitting meditation) or Kinhin (walking meditation) are complemented by reading, reciting, or Samu. Samu describes all mindful handlings. The most quotidian tasks are fine for meditation. Whether it be the conception and care of a garden, tasks in the kitchen, or any other seemingly subsidiary obligation – everything can be carried out with a careful mind and meditative dedication to the present.

Zen is never theoretical, it is an active form of meditation: considering the self from a neutral point of view, attention is meant to be taught attentiveness for reality. The goal of Zen is to put aside one’s own ego. Thus, consideration of life and the world will change drastically. The result will, in the best case, be full dedication and abiding by the divine moment: the world and I, we are a unit – there is only ONE form of consciousness!

Attentiveness meditation – the simple way for a better life
Attentiveness meditation, just as meditation for silence and peace, is an ideal introduction to the topic of mediation. Buddhism refers to it as Vipassana meditation. Being one of the most ancient forms, it spread to all circles of laypeople throughout the centuries.

Active meditation for active people
Cutting after the modern person’s lifestyle, different forms of meditation have been developed to base on physical exercise and interaction in order to find one’s own self rather than by peace and passivity. In a world full of noise, speed and a flood of medial stimuli, active meditation and its orientations are made for preparation for a contemplative phase of meditation. Physical exercise helps transfer consciousness into a state of
Yoga – The King's way to health and happiness
The spiritual lectures of Yoga stem from Indian Buddhism and Hinduism. The soul is considered a traveler, the body is the carriage: The five senses are the horses and common sense the navigator. Sanskrit calls the soul carriage’s harness Yoga. The Upanishaden lectures, created 700 years before Christ, turned into the foundation of a philosophy describing the path to enlightenment via meditation.
