Finally the website is on live available to all those who might be interested in Meditation. I will try to update the best I can in relation to meditation. First of all, I would like to share with you my experience and realisation over many years of meditation practice. Started 17 years ago I was reading up on a lot of books about Buddhism, and what caught my attention was the fact that the historical Buddha, was a prince before he went on the journey to enlightenment. He gave up all his possession and power in search for a way out of what he called the cycle of existence, birth, aging, illness and death. During his 6 years of searching, he went through ordeals of starvation, extreme discomfort and yet he was not satisfied. He then sat under the Bodhi tree, and vowed not to get out of meditation until he found the answer. The word Buddha means awaken, it was not a name by creation, through meditation he was awaken from the whole projection of what self is, the self that is shaped and identified by the culture, society, religion and belief imposed by others. And the self that is consist of many causes and conditions is forever changing, and the ideas of what self is by nature is-delusional.
When we talk about meditation, we think of peace, which is something many of us long for, regardless of our background, profession and ethnicity, no one wants to suffer. The Buddha taught meditation specifically for that reason, he didn't teach so he could spread his philosophy. One time a philosopher came to visit him, and asked him whether or not he agreed that the true self has no real existence. The philosopher asked the question 3 times, but the Buddha remained silent, watching all this happened, the Buddha's disciple Annanda was confused, he said my noble teacher, why did you not answer the philosopher? "My teaching is about overcoming suffering, he just wants my answer so he can form his theory" said the Buddha.
Hence In The Mood For Meditation provides a service that aims to help those who want to relax, deal with stress, learn about mind and body, counteract the emotional problems, and even to fight depression. This course is absolutely for everyone, one does not have to become a Buddhist, there's no one that you have to worship, all we do is bring awareness back to our lives, when one is aware of breathing, or body movement, one is living in present moment, and that opens the door to the inner self, we become calmer, more clear minded, make better decisions, and with all these insights about the self, we learn about love, relationship, and we can finally let go of the rigid belief of duality; that everything must have good and bad, or right and wrong. Meditation is very freeing and liberating, just for a few minutes we liberate ourselves from busy thinking, future planning, worrying about our careers, relationship, and obsessesion with sensual rewards. Once again, welcome to my meditation site, feel free to interact and give feedback. Have a wonderful time.
