is it possible to meditate in a moment?
Since writing One-Moment Meditation, I have met many people who were, at first, incredulous at my proposition that you can meditate in just a moment.

Many people assume that meditation takes a lot of time. Others think of meditation as an endurance test–the longer you can sit still, at peace, the more spiritual you are. Many people believe that the amount of time you spend in meditation has to “add up” before you “get it.”

The unfortunate consequence of all this is that many people try to meditate and give up, or just don’t try at all. [READ MORE]

one moment meditation ~ stillness for people on the go by martin boroson

the basic minute.
Although the purpose of One-Moment Meditation® is to help you to experience deep peace in just a moment, we start with a minute because a moment goes by so quickly that you’d have to be a master to notice one. A minute, however, is like a moment with handles on it. You know where it begins and ends, so it’s easier to grasp. So the first exercise is called the Basic Minute. [READ MORE]

  1. RE: IS IT POSSIBLE TO MEDITATE IN A MOMENT?
    Martin Borson writes on his blog:

    In the wonderfully succinct words of the Krishnamurti, “It’s now or never.”

    This doesn’t mean that if you aren’t peaceful now, you will never be peaceful. It means that, because the past and future are not really real, any thought of them is a distraction–a separation, a splitting. And it is this separation that is the cause of stress.

    Putting that another way: it is really only possible to be peaceful in the present tense. Or maybe I should say: it is really only possible to be peaceful in the present, which is not tense. The reason why you don’t need a long time to be peaceful is that it actually doesn’t take any time to be peaceful. Being peaceful only takes a moment–an extraordinary, transient, timeless moment. And that moment is now.

  2. PS: from ‘Man’s Search for Meaning’ ― by Viktor E. Frankl (Austrian Neurologist and Psychiatrist, as well as a Holocaust survivor)
    “Between stimulus and response, there is a space.
    In that space is our power to choose our response.
    In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”
    .
    “Forces beyond your control can take away everything you possess except one thing,
    your freedom to choose how you will respond to the situation.”
    .
    “Our greatest freedom is the freedom to choose our attitude.”
    .
    “It is not freedom from conditions, but it is freedom to take a stand toward the conditions.”
    .
    “Happiness cannot be pursued; it must ensue.”
