Artist's Description

Meditation is a great way to relax in order to control fear projection. Looking at this picture is relaxing, as I feel as if I was in the boat.

“*Meditation brings wisdom*; lack of mediation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what hold you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.”

Buddha (Hindu Prince Gautama Siddharta, the founder of Buddhism, 563-483 B.C.)

According to Wikipedia: Meditation is a mental discipline by which one attempts to get beyond the reflexive, “thinking” mind into a deeper state of relaxation or awareness. Meditation often involves turning attention to a single point of reference. It is recognized as a component of many religions, and has been practiced since antiquity. It is also practiced outside religious traditions. Different meditative disciplines encompass a wide range of spiritual and/or psychophysical practices which may emphasize different goals — from achievement of a higher state of consciousness, to greater focus, creativity or self-awareness, or simply a more relaxed and peaceful frame of mind.

The word meditation originally comes from the Indo-European root med-, meaning “to measure.”] From the root med- are also derived the English words mete, medicine, modest, and moderate. It entered English as meditation through the Latin meditation, which originally indicated every type of physical or intellectual exercise, then later evolved into the more specific meaning “contemplation.”

Eastern meditation techniques have been adapted and increasingly practiced in Western culture.
