Real benefit of meditation

Following the breath is so mundane . It is unexciting. Neither it reassures that all our trouble will be gone nor it makes us know all there is to know. I occasionally question myself “Why am I doing it anyway?” What REAL benefit has it given me?

I know at every level there are some benefits of meditation. But what are the benefits I am getting at this moment?

Right after that thought crossed my mind , I became aware of my nose.
Deep in my nose I became aware as air is touching nasal mucosa.
There occurred some very pleasant tingling sensation.
But, as I tried to focus on that sensation it vanished.
I couldn’t get it again.

I thought afterwards that there is my answer.
My answer to “what are the benefits I am getting at this moment?” is that very pleasant tingling sensation that I just felt.

Meditation not only gives us ย benefits but as a bonus sometimes gifts us with ability to realize those benefits. I think that realizing those benefits within us is equally important as having those benefits.

  1. Horses an teach you the power of absoluut quiet. There is a connection in the deepest quiet with the endlesness. That is the realm of the horse spirit. And the place to connect with all. I am following this road. I have my horses as zen masters.
    Blessings to all!

      • I had a discusion with somebody, who said everybody searches his soalmate, but maybe that is not realistic. Not everybody finds his.
        In contrary is the more you become your own soalmate you will encounter this in everything on your road.

  2. Meditation is great and a beautiful way to be within. I am an artist and often while I am painting or drawing, I get in a wonderful state of mind of calmness where I am so connected with my painting that is almost like I am in another dimension, in a way is almost like meditating. And I feel a beautiful sensation, when I stop for a moment, because my mind realize it in that special moment! I love when that happen!
