Sit in a quiet place with your eyes closed, take a few deep breaths to settle the mind and enter the home of the mind. Sitting in the imaginary home, through positive thinking, returning to the resonance of success and peace, and sticking to its application in practical. That is meditation! By doing it knowingly or unknowingly meditation is integrally involved in human life. When meditation is done according to proper rules, it has a positive effect on the body, mind and overall life.
