Meditation means awareness. Whatever you do with awareness, it is a form of meditation. "Watching your breath" is meditation;
‘Listening to the Birds’ is meditation. As long as these activities are free from any other distraction to the mind, it is effective
meditation. Meditation also means a cessation of the thought process. It is a state of consciousness, when the mind is free of
‘scattered thoughts' and intrusive patterns.
