The word meditation, is derived from two Latin words : meditari (to
think, to dwell upon, to exercise the mind) and mederi (to heal). Its
Sanskrit derivation 'medha' means wisdom.
Meditation is the practice and process of paying attention and focusing your awareness. When you meditate, a number of desirable things begin to happen – slowly, at first, and deepening over time. When you can focus your awareness, you gain more power.
When you concentrate any form of energy, including mental energy, you gain power. When you focus your mind, you concentrate better. When you concentrate better, you perform better. You can accomplish more, whether in the classroom, in the board room, or in the athletic area. Whatever you do, you can do it more effectively when you meditate.
