David from Raptitude has the best experiments for the soul.I'm starting on the first in his series."Sharpening the Mind"..Meditation for 10 min. a day for 30 days(his experiment was for 20 min.,but I decided to start at 10)...To check out his experiment click below and you can also see his daily log and other wonderful experiments.
"If I were to define meditation I would call it “the art of directing one’s attention.” The human mind is so flighty and fickle it’s actually hilarious how difficult it can be to keep it in one place. Civilization does a good job at distracting us 24-7. As I type this I’ve got four Firefox tabs open, TweetDeck keeps popping up, and I’ve already answered two phonecalls. Shutting them all out seems like the most obvious response, and I will do some of that (ok TweetDeck is closed.) But I am more interested in improving the other end of the equation: me.
The meditative mind is ‘like water,’ as the ancient adage goes. It is receptive, unfettered, lying still in the cool valleys rather than being blown around by the oft-changing winds of the world around it. My mind is has been more grabby and windy these days. I’m having lots of fun, but I’ve been doing too many things at once." David from Rapitude
