Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It’s a way of entering into the quiet that’s already there – buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day. The longer you do meditation, the better your brain will be at self-regulation. You don’t have to consume as much energy at rest and you can more easily get yourself into a more relaxed state. Meditative practice helps to “optimize” how the brain uses resources. It has the ability to slow down racing thoughts, to ease an overly stressed brain, and to nurture a tired soul, so that peace can be transferred to the rest of the body and the potential for healing on many levels can open up.
