The most illuminating answer to the question, “what is the best meditation practice?” is “steady practice

~Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian

A steady meditation practice does more than give us expertise in monitoring and controlling the thoughts in our minds. It changes and expands the neural networks which are the brain itself and it releases neurotransmitters that control virtually all of the body’s functions, from hormones to digestion to feeling happy, sad, or stressed. Deep meditation leads to a basic state of bliss, which is our true nature. When active in the world, we can use a conscious breath to return to this bliss and over time we become attuned to the intuition that can guide us to harmonious interaction with all those around us. Meditate every day. The benefits are limitless.
