May our thoughts be divine!

The English word meditation comes from the Latin meditatio, which originally indicated every type of physical or intellectual exercise, then later evolved into the more specific meaning "contemplation.
 Meditation is an approach to training the mind, similar to the way that fitness is an approach to training the body. But many meditation techniques exist.
 Meditation is usually defined as one of the following:

-a state of relaxed concentration on the reality of the present moment
-a state that is experienced when the mind dissolves and is free of all thoughts
 -"concentration in which the attention has been liberated from restlessness and is focused on God."
-focusing the mind on a single object (such as a religious statue, or one's breath, or a mantra)
-a mental "opening up" to the divine, invoking the guidance of a higher power
-reasoned analysis of religious teachings (such as impermanence, for Buddhists).
