To meditate, find a quiet comfortable place where you can sit in a relaxed manner, with your spine erect, for five to twenty minutes a day. Let your thoughts quiet and concentrate on a mantra. As thoughts come into your mind, gently but firmly allow yourself to let them go and return your concentration to your chosen mantra. You can meditate in a comfortable chair, by a lake or stream, in a forest, out in your yard, or anyplace you choose that supports you to unwind and go within.
Here a few examples of modern mantras:
- “Love is the only miracle there is.” – Osho
- “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” – Gandhi
- “Every day in every way I’m getting better and better.” – Laura Silva
- “I change my thoughts, I change my world.” – Norman Vincent Peale
