Meditation is a process to cleanse your mind on a daily basis and make it positive and powerful. As we clean our body with a daily bath or clean our house by dusting and sweeping we need to clean our mind with meditation to get rid of unwanted negative thoughts and impressions.
Preparation for Meditation not only requires a proper spot, loose clothing, and light food; but also, good behavior, positive perception, let-go attitude and acceptance for all. The goal of meditation is not to control your thoughts but is to stop letting them control you.
