Meditation can be many things; but in its essence and despite any method used; its about finding the center point or the void within, and to bring the sense of peace and clarity that dwells there into our lives.
The void within is the point of observation which is behind all layers of identity and thought. A place where one can see things as they truly are. Thats is; without filters and layers of the Ego-mind, the inner child, inner teenager or any other layers of identity that distorts our vision and understanding of reality.
From this point or void within; love, peace, balance, clarity, nessesary action, necessary thought & necessary feelings arises naturally without effort.
From an energetic point of view; Its about finding the horizontal and vertical balance between heaven & earth and the feminine & the masculine.
THREE CENTER POINTS
Vertically; the center-point is the heart; This is the Seat of the Soul and the balance point between Heaven and Earth
Horizontally; the center-point is the third Eye; This is the Seat of Spirit and the balance point between the masculine and the feminine.
And somewhere in-between these two is of the metaphysical center-point. This is the void, the singularity and no-thingness from which everything in existence emerges; Infinite possibility; the non-identified presence from where creativity, clarity, clairvoyance and authentic love arises.
MEDITATION IS TUNING OUR ENERGY FREQUENCIES
So by tuning our energy centers and finding the I AM presence; we can allow peace, clarity, creativity, joy, sadness, higher consciousness, no-thingness and all other beautiful aspects of Live flow through us freely exactly the way it wants to flow in syncronicity with All-That-Is.
Then we can be free from blockages, restrictions and whatever that holds us back from being who we really are; pure and unidentified beingness; infinite potential; the source of creativity love, joy and so on.

HOT TO DEAL WITH THOUGHTS DURING MEDITATION
No matter what method that you are using to find the point of stillness; there will be thoughts coming up with various intensity.
A good way of handling thoughts is to see them as energy bubbles; which is exactly what they are.
These bubbles are energy transmissions, they do not define us and they do not always even origin from our own minds or hearts. Thoughts are all around us and have many different sources. Such as; other your have a bonding with, collective throughout patterns, broadcasted throught-streams of various sorts.
“My brain is only a receiver, in the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know that it exists.” – Nikola Tesla
As soon as we see them for what they are; simply bubbles floating everywhere and sometimes coming and merging with our head space; they suddenly become much less annoying and quite easy to deal with.
So if a though bubble comes to your head during meditation, just remember; the more energy and attention you give to it , the more the bubble will linger and grow.
‘Where attention goes, energy flows’ – Unknown
If we give these thought-bubbles endless energy and focus, they will grow become our entire life.
Let the though come; welcome it, let it flow through your head-space as a guest, and then simply let it go and flow out by continuing to breathe in lightness and breath out heaviness.
