Meditation is easy. One of the great spiritual teachers, Sant Kirpal Singh Ji Maharaj, used to say that it is like closing one drawer and opening another.

During the time of meditation, we merely put our thoughts of the world and our problems in one drawer and close it. Then, we open the drawer of meditation and concentrate only on that.

Meditation is focusing one’s attention at the seat of the soul. That is a point located between and behind the two eyebrows. If we can stop putting our attention on our outer eyes and ears for a while and concentrate at the seat of the soul, we will tap into the source of happiness and bliss awaiting us. By concentrating at the eye-focus, inner vistas of Light open for us. By becoming absorbed in the Light, we experience a lasting source of joy and peace. This is what meditation is.
