Are there really any meditation secrets?
Well, the answer is yes and no.
One of the dictionary definitions of the word secret is “unknown to others”. So if someone knows something about meditation and you don’t know that same thing, then as far as you are concerned, it’s a meditation secret.
Of course, once you discover the secret, it’s no longer a secret to you. But it could still be a secret to others.
So really we’re talking about meditation secrets in the loosest possible sense of the term.
What sort of meditation secrets might there be? Since I don’t know you, I cannot possibly know what you have already learned about meditation and what you still have to learn.
Regardless of that, I’m going to guess that you may or may not know how binaural beats, sometimes known as brain music, can deepen your meditation experience. If you use music as a background whilst you meditate, experiment with a professionally prepared binaural beats track in the background as well. I think you’ll notice a positive difference the next time you meditate if you include them.
You may also think that it takes hours of practice to meditate. The secret here is that it’s focus that counts. A truly focused meditation session lasting only, say, 15 minutes, can have as much power as hours of unfocused meditating. Be present the next time you meditate. Keep yourself focused. Again, I suspect you’ll notice a positive change from this small secret.
Alternatively, you could hunt out small groups of people whose meditation methods are almost unknown in the Western world. The knowledge contained in these small groups is probably the closest to a true secret, hidden in some of the most obscure places in the world. Although with the power of the internet, even this knowledge is likely to become more widespread.
