Concentration And Meditation
12-10-2016, 04:25 AM
Post: #1
I've been having a tough time with my concentration and I was reading this article: How A Few Simple Things Helped Me Meditate Without Losing Concentration. I tried a few of the things mentioned on there and they seemed to helped, but as I was reading around more on other websites / blogs as well. 

What some people were saying is that meditation is the opposite of concentration and if you're concentrating then you're not meditating. That meditation is expanding the mind while concentration is narrowing it and that the two are mutually exclusive.

Lots of confusing stuff for someone who's relatively new to it. What do you guys think?

I'm new to this too. One book I recommend however for 'right practice' is 'Beginners Mind' by Shunryu Suzuki

“In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert's there are few.” ― Shunryu Suzuki

There is more then one way to meditate. Meditation is a way of training the mind, and there are more ways then one to train it - being able to go both ways can be helpful.
