When it comes to beginners meditation, Bruce Lee was a true master above all others. Here is a direct quote from him, about the state you should be in when you go to meditate, as well as day to day life:
“Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless – like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, you put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” – Quoted From Bruce Lee, Master Martial Artist, 1940 – 1973
This quote is an inspiration to us all. It shows the foundation of beginners meditation. It shows that you need to adapt to any given moment, any given situation.
And this all can be achieved through simple meditation techniques.
Being a beginner in meditation you should focus on your breathing first and for most. You need to control it, bend it to your will, and once you have achieved this, you will notice that you will breath when you need to, it will be more slowly, more focused, and you will not have to think about it.
You need to focus your mind on one thing at a time, do not jump all over the place, do not think of what you need to do later, or if you did something in the past. You need to be anchored in the moment, not wandering around looking at all the shiny objects you can see.
Achieving a true true meditative state
is an act of will alone, and only you can do this for yourself. You can not except some outside force to come along, and sweep you into a meditation that can help you solve all your problems now can you? Of course not, that would be silly.
You have to realize that you are in complete control of your own mind and body, and if you can control them fully, you can achieve whatever your heart desires.
As you can see, Bruce Lee was a wise man, beyond his years, and his ways are a true foundation of any beginners meditation technique we use today. You have learned that with you in total control of your mind and body, that nothing can be out of your reach, you can achieve any of your hearts desires, and you will be more at peace of mind than you ever thought possible.
