Meditation is one way to find space between our thoughts and actions, or reactions.
In the beginning meditation can feel like we are ‘doing’ something pro active for our mental health. I agree. Adding to that, meditation is the Un Doing of all we think, say, hear, see, smell and taste. But conversly, many people feel, especially in the early days that they are doing nothing but thinking as they sit, learning to sit in wakeful awareness.
To be honest, its all there. Meditation is a practice of gathering all we can to remain whole, accepting all the parts of us. Even the parts that interrupt our quiet moments, or the part that wants to, needs to, feels it can, it must do nothing but leave the meditation stillness and maybe return again, or maybe not. And that is perfectly okay, it is very normal, it is very human.
It is a bit of a paradox really because meditation is very much a stopping of all action at the start, in the learning days. It takes time, and wherewithall to stick with it. Ayurveda adds to the practices of meditatation, as certain body mind types or doshas are better off with certain meditation practices.
