Simple Questions From Everyday People.....

Basic questions from everyday people.
 
meditation1. Why meditate?   It sounds weird. 
 
2.  Isn't meditation religious or spiritual? 
 
3. Does this require me to turn off my brain because I can't do that?
 
4.  What does sitting with my eyes closed do for me
 
 
Meditation is something that is not reserved for one small population of people of any particular background or religion.  Yes, there are many types of meditation and some are religious or spiritual in nature, but the kind that is being offered by "Peaceful Warriors" is based on the concept of simple awareness of the present moment and does not require you to subscribe to anything or anyone other than yourself in the present moment.
 
 
Meditation does not require you to turn off your brain.  You can't.  It's impossible.  There is a constant flow of natural electrical activity going on in your brain physiologically.  "Peaceful Warriors" uses a meditation practice that reminds your brain that we are focusing on the movement of your stomach as you breathe, for example.
 
 
Meditation can be accomplished with the eyes open or closed, especially for those who are not comfortable sitting in an unfamiliar space with their eyes closed.  The brain operates on two parts of our nervous system.  In simple terms,  one part of the nervous system is linked to hyper-vigilance, arousal, stress hormones, etc.  The other part of the nervous system is linked to rational thinking, compassion, and calmness.  Meditation helps to activate the part of the brain that signals the nervous system that controls rational thinking, compassion, and calmness. If you never activate the part of the brain that calms you down and helps you to think more clearly and rationally, the other part continues to fire off with more of the same hyper-arousal and hyper-vigilance.  If you are constantly on high alert, imagine the toll that takes on your mind, your body, your health, and your  overall sense of well-being.  I think we can all agree that being stressed out all the time isn't good for our health, our relationships, or our sense of living a well-lived life.  It is my personal belief that for the sacrifice each of our public servants makes to protect, defend, and support our lives everyday, they deserve to live a life they can feel good about too and connected to for all the good work that they do.
