// @YOGA: The Truth About #MEDITATION #RELAX* 5K+ ↓↓   ↓

God created various physical responses to meditation for the purposes of relaxation, peace, tranquility and healing. When someone meditates, they take a break from the chaos around them, and seek a temporary deliverance from it.

Here’s how it works. Let’s say a person goes to the beach, and sits at the waterfront listening to the waves slowly crashing against the shore. They choose to let go of all the thoughts, fears, worries, trials and tribulations of life. They start to take deep, slow breaths of air, etc..

The result? Their body feels relaxed. Their emotions feel tranquil and at peace. Their racing and rushing thoughts and their physical existence seems to slow down and mellow out. Endorphin chemicals are released from the brain, and travel throughout the body. They feel good! They feel like they are healing. This is something that God created for us. Whether we call it "meditation", or "slowing down", "taking a break", "relaxation", it’s something He wants us to do.

All of the meditation functions mentioned above can be done without any involvement of religious or spiritual beliefs or principals.

Sadly, here is where the truth about Meditation goes out the door: False religions use the God given function of meditation, and mix it in with their beliefs. In fact, some religions have their principals wrapped up in meditation as a corner stone. The result? An ignorant person gets lead by a false religious group into trying their "meditation" techniques.

Because meditation is a God given function of relaxation (as mentioned above), people feel the results. Sadly, people being deceived by false groups are led into focusing on and thinking about false gods, statues, idols, false "self power", etc... during the meditation process, and that is where they are deceived into thinking that their normal physical relaxation response is a "spiritual" enlightenment from whoever or whatever they choose to focus on. Bold Christians would say that these people have been led into a evil ritual, and that false spiritual influences have effected and claimed them through their willful interaction.

This results in many things. Some people reject the truth of the Christian Godhead, and choose to follow in the footsteps of what the Holy Bible calls "damnable heresies", because they are deceived into thinking that peace and tranquility is being given to them by a "god" that doesn’t even exist. An idol. Others get deceived into becoming what we call "new age", and attempt to mix in their "meditation" principals from false religions, into their own custom form of "christianity". Others will magnify themselves against God. Apparently not knowing or believing God when He Commands: "Thou shalt have no other gods before me." - Exodus 20:3, and Jesus when He proclaims: "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father [GOD], but by me." - John 14:6.

On the other side of the spectrum, many choose to focus on the Biblical God of Truth / Jesus Christ: when they meditate, and that brings them into an even deeper, closer relationship and experience with the truth.

In closing, meditation is a gift from God. The ability to relax and slow way down through breathing deep and slow, letting go of problems and thoughts, and taking a break. However, do not be led astray! Just because meditation works, it does not mean that there is any credit to any of the false religious or false "spiritual" doctrines that most "meditation" techniques are wrapped up in!
