note - this turned out to be one of our top five most read and recommended articles ever!
We published a new article on the site Medium. Here is an excerpt:
"On the other hand, suppress is defined as “forcibly put an end to; prevent.” Meditation is the opposite of that definition — when you meditate, you aren’t trying to forcibly end or prevent anything. To the contrary, you accept it all non-judgmentally.
Put another way, meditation is embracing whatever is happening in the present moment. The distinction, however, is that meditating isn’t wallowing in thoughts and emotions. Nor is it dwelling on or analyzing them."
Go to Medium to read the rest (you don't need to create an account to read it, but if you have an account and enjoy the article, please "Recommend" it).
