There are innumerable forms of meditations and meditation tools. Here I would like to share four tools and practices that better enable self-awareness and promote a meditative mind state. These four meditation practices correspond with the energy of the four dimensions of geometry, and enable the inner understanding of ourselves as well as outer understandings of the world. Use these four meditation tools as your own, for whatever situation you find them applicable.
Meditation Tools for Self-Awareness and a Quiet Mind
Wherever you may be, whether on the subway or the mountain top (preferably a natural setting), whether sitting or standing, observe your surroundings and reflect them, as well as reflect upon them. Observe the intricate simplicity and infinite beauty behind and beyond the beautiful natural web of life you are immersed in. Reflect on the beauty of the entirety of creation, the volume of the here and now.
The reflection meditation tool enables better observation and understanding of the volume of one’s surroundings. If a situation is difficult to understand we reflect upon it in order for the solution to present itself.
