Meditation refers to the mental activity of sustaining conscious awareness on one thing, perception, concept, process or sensation. This may be, for example, the process of breathing, an external object, the concept and emotion of loving-kindness, a meaningful word, a physical sensation or the perception of impermanence Meditation can be done in any posture, but the most common ones are sitting cross-legged and walking back and forth. As mindful attention becomes increasingly continuous, the dispersed and distracted energy of the mind becomes more focused and clear. The act of sustaining awareness calms and soothes both the body and mind, while the focusing of attention energizes and brightens the mind.
