The key to meditating is to focus on the breath. The mind has to follow your command and nothing else when you focus on the inhale and exhale. It cannot focus on doing two things at once. Breathing in a seated comfortable position on the floor or chair, if you cannot manipulate sitting cross-legged, is the best for meditation. Actually, you can meditate anywhere as long as you are not using heavy machinery or driving a car. You can meditate while doing the dishes or vacuuming or washing your car, for example.

Meditating is listening to God. "The mouth of God is the mind of man." as Neville Goddard has stated in his tapes and lectures Prayer is speaking to God. So in meditating, you are breathing and listening to the mouth of God. You are listening to the silence and being in the silence and witnessing how it is and how it feels to be in that silence. Once you put a thought to it, it's gone.

By breathing in to the sound of OM (aum) and exhaling the same sound within your mind, you start to see you are controlling your mind from wandering and by its getting involved with 10 or more thoughts trying to vie for your attention.

Make it your intention to concentrate on a mantra like "Om Namah Shivaya", the breath or the sound of OM as you sit quietly. Place your thumb, representing God and your index finger touching the tip of the thumb. Your finger represents you and it means you are uniting with God. You are in union with God. Stretch the other fingers out straight, place your straight arms and hands to rest on your knees. This keeps your circuitry of energy flowing and not away and out from you.

If you are a smoker, anxious, can't sleep, worried or hyper, make it your intention to get clear. Let yourself receive permission from yourself to meditate. You will get the answers you need to solve smoking, etc because you are the answer. God has revealed the answers for you within. You just need to sit and decide to listen while being patient and loving with yourself.

Meditation is bliss. Give up trying to be God and BE God. Live God. Think God.
