Meditation & Buddhist Retreats

Have you ever wondered why some people have stronger will power and manage daily tasks much easier and for some of us it’s hard to compete?

One of the best ideas to figure out mind over matter is to exercise the mind with meditation for around ten minutes a day before and after work. Meditation reduces stress and opens our mind to a more peaceful, relaxing meaning to life.

Meditation can help you deal with stress and negative emotions. Multiple studies have shown that meditation can help reduce levels of depression and anxiety, along with helping people tolerate pain better.

learning meditation and breathing exercises are both related to finding good karma.  It helps decrease metabolism, lowers blood pressure, and improves heart rate, breathing, and brain waves.

In Thailand, there are some wonderful Buddhist retreats where you can spend time learning about the meaning of real Buddhism and it’s mindful healing of health problems.

A decision can also be made to become a monk for a month and stay for as long as you want. By sticking to the rules of the Four Noble Truths it will bring enlightenment into your life.

Mediation controls Anxiety. Less stress translates to less anxiety which is where it promotes emotional health through exercising the brain to prolong an experience of good karma.

Through exercising the mind it nurtures a slow meaning of emotional awareness which coincides with deep concentrated thoughts to block the environment on the outside. Meditation promotes emotional health like other teachings that exist today.

Meditation lengthens attention span as you drift into self-awareness of true karma if done right. When under meditation it gives a longer-lasting meaning to the truths of tranquillity. It may reduce age-related memory loss and can generate kindness as well as help fight addictions.

The Four Noble Truths

Buddhism teaches about suffering its origin, cessation and path. That’s what is taught in temples around the world. Buddha’s teaching goes back 2500 years ago.

The Four Noble Truths contain the essence of the Buddha’s teachings. It was these four principles that the Buddha came to understand during his meditation under the bodhi tree.

At the core of Buddhism is the belief in the Four Noble Truths. Believed to have been conceived by Siddhartha Gautama, or Buddha, these four truths are The Truth of Suffering, The Truth of the Cause of Suffering, The Truth of the End of Suffering, and The Truth of the Path that Leads to the End of Suffering.

Thailand is a wonderful country to learn much about Buddhism and its teachings with outstanding golden temples that give enlightenment not just for the locals but also so for those that visit from other countries. I’ve spent more than five years in Thailand and visited many temples and understand the need to be faithful to the teachings of Buddha.
