How contemplating on your own life can take you into a meditative state. Keywords:

Article Body: One Answer….for all questions - This too will pass... This meditation technique is quite different from thje conventional meditation techniques. This technique is actually a contemplation exercise and involves thinking over life. Though people of all age can try this technique, it is basically suitable for people with mature age (I mean 18 & above). The reason is that only those who have lived a certain (substantial) duration of life can reflect back on their past. Very young people who are still in the initial phase of their life are less likely (though not impossible) to analyze their life from the angle which this meditation demands. Nevertheless, this meditation technique is very useful for knowing our true self. Method: First read this thought provoking story :Once a king called upon all of his wise men and asked them, " Is there a mantra or suggestion which works in every situation, in every circumstances, in every place and in every time. Something which can help me when none of you is available to advise me. Tell me is there any mantra?" All wise men got puzzled by King's question. One answer for all question? Something that works everywhere, in every situation? In every joy every sorrow, every defeat and every victory? They thought and thought. After a lengthy discussion, an old man suggested something which appeal to all of them. They went to king and gave him something written on paper. But the condition was that king was not to see it out of curiosity. Only in extreme danger, when the King finds himself alone and there seems to be no way, only then he'll have to see it. The King put the papers under his Diamond ring. After a few days, the neighbors attack the Kingdom. It was a collective surprise attack of King's enemies. King and his army fought bravely but lost the battle. King had to fled on his horse. The enemies were following him. His horse took him far away in Jungle. He could hear many troops of horses were following him and the noise was coming closer and closer. Suddenly the King found himself standing in the end of the road - that road was not going anywhere. Underneath there was a rocky valley thousand feet deep. If he jumped into it, he would be finished…and he could not return because it was a small road…From back the sound of enemy's horses was approaching fast. King became restless. There seemed to be no way. Then suddenly he saw the Diamond in his ring shining in the sun, and he remembered the message hidden in the ring. He opened the diamond and read the message. The message was very small but very great.

from every corner. However when those days of luxuries have gone. It is not easy to defeat me. A calm come on his face. He reorganized his army and fought again." I am one of the bravest and greatest King. After a few minute he realized that the noise of the horses and the enemy coming was receding." This too will pass. Everyday for 10-15 minutes sit in silence. There were friends in past. Are they permanent.they too will go. Sorrow come and go. they too will pass away. I was enjoying my kingdom. There will be new friends tomorrow. He relaxed and forget about those following him. They moved into some other part of the mountains and were not on that path. Flowers were being thrown on King from every house. Think of the moment of Sorrow and defeat. They too will go. Suddenly something strike in his mind.. They too will go. It will remain unchanged.. If there are problems in the present. Experience it. If this too is going to pass. Think over it from your own perspective. Everything passes by We are witness of all this. For a moment King said to himself. I am here trying to escape from enemies. He defeated the enemy and regain his lost empire. They all come and pass away. there is something in you. the victory is not yours. There may be enemy in present. There is nothing permanent in this world. What is that unchangeable ? It is nothing but your true self. which will not change. I was the mightiest of all the Kings.Yes ! it too will pass. The whole capital was rejoicing in the victory. just sit silently and evaluate your own life. His face went through a total change -from the egoist he moved to a state of utter humbleness. We are the perceiver.. he was received with much fan fare at the door. Who are you in reality? Know your real face. the Kingdom and all his pleasure have gone. There were enemies in past. Happiness come and go. It will change with the time. Now as you have read this story. understand it. Because nothing remains forever. The place where he was standing was full of natural beauty. They have gone. They both will pass away. Only a few days ago.The message was . Every thing changes except the law of change." ." The King read it . You have seen all the changes. Think of the moments of joy and victory in your life. Yet today. However. This too will pass. All have passed away. it is not yours. this day of danger too will pass.: With all the reception and celebration he saw an ego emerging in him. The defeat was not yours. Again read it. People were dancing and singing. You are just a watcher. The King was very brave. He open it and read it again: "This too will pass" He became silent. The revelation of message had a great effect on him. Suddenly the Diamond of his ring flashed in the sunlight and reminded him of the message. Life just passes away. When he returned to his empire after victory. " This too will pass. You have survived all setbacks . all defeats and all sorrows. He had never known that such a beautiful place was also a part of his Kingdom. They too will go. There will be new enemies tomorrow and. He kept standing there.. Your face is not your true face. They all have gone. There are friends today. Life come and go. Joy and sorrow are the two faces of the same coin. You are just a witness of change. Everyone was in a festive mood.. Just think over the sentence.

To know that self is true meditation. . Everything passes yet your real identity remains the same. That real you is your true self.Pondering over your own life will make you realize the true meaning of this sentence.
