please describe the best way to go about meditating properly.
I replied by saying there are so many ways to meditate, I
hesitate to recommend one. Some people meditate while walking, others

Letting go of all thoughts
Observing the patterns of thoughts
Feeling energy flowing through my body
Whatever mental focus most appeals to you is the one to try.
This is really all there is to it... just combine one of your most relaxing
activities with one of your most relaxing mental focuses, and you are
If you try one meditation and find you don't like it, then try another one.
You will find something you like, so don't give up!
