People who meditate regularly seem to have something special about them. Perhaps it is their deeply contented smile. Perhaps it is their natural good health. Certainly, powerful medical research tells us that meditation reliably prevents illness, maximizes performance. It is a profound healing technique and leads to peace of mind. Meditation achieves all this by restoring our natural state of balance. Once we re-establish an inner balance there is a flow-on-effect. Soon we experience physical balance and good health, emotional balance and poise, mental clarity and confidence, and spiritual harmony. The real secret to all this is that this balance is found in a state of inner silence – simple silence. And all that we need to do to experience it is-be still-and there it is! So How to Do It? How to let go of life’s busyness and be still? How to relax physically and still the mind? Meditation-Pure and simple delivers what it promises.
