Its benefits include greater peace of mind, less stress, improved health, spiritual growth, sharper mental focus, and simple relaxation. Once a practice mainly of priests, gurus, and mystics, its popularity now extends to millions of people around the world. We invite our readers to enjoy the following meditation, designed to inspire peace, joy, and love in the spirit of the participant.

1. Get still and quiet in a place where you can expect to be undisturbed. Take a deep breath and hold it two seconds, then exhale. Close your eyes and do the same again. As you breath in, feel your body taking in oxygen and everything good, healthy, positive, nurturing.

2. As you exhale, feel yourself breathing out carbon dioxide and everything negative, unhealthy, toxic, unnecessary. Do this for a couple of minutes and feel yourself becoming healthier, happier, and more relaxed.

3. Say to yourself: My mind is preoccupied with past thoughts. I see only my own thoughts, and my mind is preoccupied with the past. What, then, can I see as it is? Let me remember that I look on the past to prevent the present from dawning on my mind. Let me understand that I am trying to use time against God. Let me learn to give the past away, realizing that in so doing I am giving up nothing.

4. When you feel complete with this meditation, slowly and gently open your eyes. Resume your day’s activities, but return to the thought, “My mind is preoccupied with past thoughts,” as often as you wish.
