Meditation increases concentration and attention, sharpens the perception, and developes the intellect. It is the awareness one gets when meditating that makes it possible to control ones emotions and the flow of thoughts. There are different types of meditations, but I shall not discuss them yet, because one can read about meditation on other places. When one meditates, one should sit, for example, with crossed leggs, or in another way that is fitting. Also, one should not meditate when one is tired. If you are not used to meditate, find a calm and quiet place. That is always good when one is meditating, but not always neccesary if one is used to do it. A simple breating meditation: Concentrate on your breathing. Random thoughts should be observed logical and then melted down, elliminated, pushed away. Do not concentrate on them, concentrate on your breathing. Now, every breath -- a breathing in and a breathing out has a value of one. Count every breath, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5... until you reach 10, and begin again at 1. Loop the event over and over again for a period of time, 1, 2, 3...9, 10, 1, 2, 3... If you loose the count, or discovers that you have reached 11, 12, 13..., restart at 1 and try to increase your concentration. You can do this for 5-10 minutes. When you have meditated for a time, a couple of weeks or months, and you think that you master it well, you may try to stop count, and only concentrate on your breathing. The counting is only a tool, supporting the meditation. It helps one concentrate, and can be put away when one does not need it any longer.
Peace and long life.
