Meditation allows the mind to be without thoughts, and as thoughts retreat, the restlessness and dissatisfaction of life disappear, and one becomes relaxed and at peace - sometimes even blessed.
There are several meditation techniques that can help you connect with this inner peace. Some of them are movement techniques, others are techniques in which the body is asked to be immobile.
For modern man the advice is to start with movement techniques so that emotional compressions and muscular need to release the tensions given by the immobility in which the body is often held, can release and access to a relaxed space and of peace be more immediate.
The more one practices and the more an inner inquiry is opened within the meditator to bring this dimension into everyday life. I find that the tool of the path O.P.H. it can help in this awakening to the present.
