Meditation requires strength and determination. It is for the same reason that many people cannot meditate for more than 2 minutes. Take a visit to any gym and you will see a line-up of meditation teachers supervising in class so that their children can meditate a little longer. However, it is found that it is not so easy to practice long sessions of meditation.
Ideally, not many people know what meditation means. They might sit in silence in a thoughtless void for hours at one time and may wonder to achieve eternal bliss. However, this is spiritual fantasy. Being still might help you feel easy and relaxed but the time you are in that position; it is no less or more peaceful than watching TV or having a nice meal. It is usually for the ideal reason that many people cannot practice meditation for long hours.
On daily basis you might undergo many thoughts and dissipate within our awareness which is oneâ€™s ability to observe the passing notions. Albeit, these notions happen to take place randomly sans any intervention and we realise that we are producing these thoughts and can manipulate them. We are accustomed of analysing our thoughts and labelling them negative and positive. According to our labelling we react accordingly and reflect associated moods. Many people find changing thoughts difficult and this where meditation comes in to practice. Initially, it might be difficult to practice it and alter your notions, but push yourself beyond boundaries and limits and focus on meditation session for long. The more you will practice it the better you will find yourself in altering your thoughts and will develop a positive thinking and notions that bring happiness and bliss to your life.
