“[Meditation] is not about clearing the mind; it’s about focusing on one thing. When the mind wanders, the meditation isn’t a failure. Our brain is like a wayward puppy, out of control. Catching it and putting it back to the object of focus is the mediation.” -- Brooks, director of the Austin Psychology and Assessment Center
Concentration meditation involves focusing on a single point.
In this form of meditation, you simply refocus your awareness on the chosen object of attention each time you notice your mind wandering. Through this process, your ability to concentrate improves.
To get started, it doesn't matter whether you sit or lay down as long as you are comfortable.
You can sit cross-legged, on the floor, or on a chair. Then have the palms of your hands face the sky.
