MEDITATION AT A SHOPPING MALL? (It is very much possible!)Published: Dec 3rd, 2019 03:08 pm
Spirituality in essence is to know the self and relating to other selves!
Meditation helps one to stay spiritual.
Being in meditation can be achieved in all circumstances, even when roaming in a shopping mall.
Mind always craves for the stimulation of senses – Food and beverages, good sight, melodious sound, nice smell, good feeling of surroundings.
If not for any of the above, stimulation for the thought is high on agenda!
(Stimulation of thought – like to read , listen or watch intellectual/spiritual/literary works, imagining, fantasizing,etc)
Can we get out of this harping for this or that sensation and just be for some time?
Shopping mall provides great opportunity for practicing ‘being in meditation’.
It has all the glitzy stuff displayed through the windows of shops, food courts, cinema hall, and variety of people streaming in and out of this place.
Now it is easy to be in meditation. Just be aware of all the things (sights,sounds, smell and feel of the place) and cut off any thoughts that arises on any or combination of those sensations around. And see what happens in your being.
This practice trains the mind to be quiet and be at our service only if called for!
