Here is the thing:
Meditation is the single most important thing you can add to your life.
You sit eyes closed noticing all the physical sensations in your body. The purpose of this exercise is to keep your mind busy!
When the ‘monkey mind’ is kept focused on the body sensations for 20 minutes at a time daily for a year of so, your consciousness will be awakened.
Consciousness is noticing what you are noticing. It resides outside your body and mind.
