Would you like to know how to relax? Would you like to be perfect? Believe it or not, it is possible to be an ideal human being and to relax. One leads to the other. The more relaxed you are, the easier it is to see yourself as you indeed are and understand yourself.
Do you know what perfect you would be? The answer is different depending upon your expectations and how you define perfection. If you don't know what perfect you are, then how can you reach that goal?
It is essential to relax because, during meditation, you perhaps strip away the anxiety that leads to self-criticism and negativity and see yourself as you are. Once you release yourself from the bonds of the world's expectations and demands, you can explore your feelings and thoughts.
The person you find beneath the shallow values of the world will be a complex being rich in feeling and thought. For instance, you will find that the person waiting to be discovered your friend and a beautiful human being who always tries their best. Of course, since you don't always know what will happen in the future, you can only make the best decisions based on your experience. Isn't that the definition of a perfect human being, one who does their best?
Doing your best doesn't mean always being successful; it means just making decisions based on what you can see, feel, or know and then letting life unfold. As it grows, the choices you have made will lead to outcomes. Sometimes they will be happy, and you may feel successful, while other times will lead to what the world, and even you, may consider failure.
But don't be deceived by the two imposters, success and failure, because each is just a different end of the same stick. If an experience was meant to teach you by not turning out the way you wanted it, then the experience was a success.
Being able to relax and let the cares of the day slip away will lead you to see what is and is not and relieve you of the burden of guilt, shame, worry, and you will realize that you are perfect and, just as importantly, you will feel joy and happiness with your new-found perfection.
There are so many benefits to meditating, and the process itself does not require much. Free time and a will to learn the art of meditation are often all it takes for meditation. It is important to note that there are two different types of meditation - personal meditation and guided. These are two different ways that are intended to help people learn to meditate. The first of the two is for people who can meditate by themselves without any help, while the second, guided meditation, is a good choice for people who cannot contemplate without being guided through the process.
