Our lifestyles have somewhat transformed us into humanized robots. We sit for long hours until the given task achieves completion. We work all day long but are we sure we are focused? Being focused is a necessity in the multifaceted lives of people these days. It is strange, something that proves to be a constraint doesn’t really come effortlessly to the masses. We all know we need to focus on what we do, we all know meditation can help build that focus but still, we fail to achieve that. In the times when yoga has taken over a larger part of the modern dwellers, Yoga for meditation is being adapted by the beginners and even the ones who practice yoga intensively.
Meditation and Yoga are correlated. Both of them are the part of the Eight Limbs of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. Yoga for meditation works to unite our tiny inner self with the greater super soul. While we opt Yoga for meditation, it strives to make us aware of the fact that in order to forget about our body, in order to go deep into meditation. Where there is a flow of breath, the mind is stimulated. The very beginning of Yoga is meditation. While we meditate during the beginning of yoga, it brings the body to a point of quietness by clarifying the disturbing power we carry around and makes us become fully absorbed in deep meditation.
As soon as we unfold our yoga mats to sit and start with our daily yoga, the first and foremost thing that we do is close our eyes and try to concentrate. This is the first step to meditate. We might actually feel that we are going into the darkness by closing our eyes, in reality, we tend to focus our vision, our gaze on one particular thing, it might take time to attain that equilibrium, but once it is done, there will be a sense of balance. The eyes will then follow the gaze and nothing will be on the mind apart from the focus point.
Certain yoga asanas and postures like Pranayam, Tadasana, Vikrasana, Savasana help to create a balance in the body, puts you in a position where you feel liberated and relaxed. It creates an environment which compels you to look beyond your usual recognition and brings you to think above all. Think about the super soul that you have longed to meet. A certain voice guides you through taking you in peace and tranquillity Ascertaining balance in the yoga practice emblematically empowers us to find stability in our daily lives. The moment when we are able to concentrate and focus on the mats, that is the very moment when we can compare to us being able to focus and concentrate elsewhere too.
So the next time when the minds feels distracted and concentrating seems to be lost, practice some yoga above to transport yourself back into the present moment, set your vision and gaze in place, allow yourself to focus and concentrate. This will guarantee a better and renewed you who is all set to outperform yourself.
