To experience true mental clarity we must search for our own infinity. This infinity is the absence of thought. It is the opposite of imagination and wishful thinking, and the satisfaction of emptiness.
People strive for this infinity for their whole lives. The feeling of wholeness and simultaneous emptiness. Being at one with the universe while, at the same time, being a whole, separate and total entity.
To move towards experiencing the totality of infinity, we must learn to clear our minds and encounter a complete absence of thoughts. When we are not covetous of anything, and when we are not moving towards any goal, we are moving towards our infinity.
In this guide we will look at a mediation that can hold our hand on our quest for our personal infinity. It requires practice and dedication, and cannot be achieved overnight, but it is also a relaxing and beneficial meditation in its own right.

How to do this Meditation
This simple meditation to clear the mind, open the lungs and bring about the experience of infinity can last anywhere from 12 minutes to 31 minutes, but shouldn’t last any longer.
Start by finding a quiet space where you will be comfortable and won’t get disturbed.
Posture: Sit on the floor in Easy Pose, or a similar cross-legged position that you find comfortable, and sit up straight with an elongated spine. Eyes are focussing on the tip of the nose.
Mudra: Bring the hands to just in front of the chest with the palms facing the sky with the little fingers running parallel to the diaphragm. The back of the right hand is resting on the palm of the left. Point the thumbs away from the body.
Mantra: Inhale deeply, filling the lungs and pushing the diaphragm down deeply. As you exhale totally, chant the following mantra: Sat Naam Sat Naam Sat Naam Sat Naam Sat Naam Sat Naam Whaa-hay Guroo.
After chanting the mantra three times on the exhale, take another deep inhalation and repeat. Keep this going for as long as you feel comfortable, focussing the mind totally on the breath and the powerful mantra.
To Finish: Take some time to breathe deeply and come back into the room, allowing your mind to slowly become aware of your surroundings, before getting on with your day with a renewed sense of clarity and relaxation.
When we strive to experience our own infinity it brings a whole host of other positive side-effects to our lives, making it the perfect practice for a few minutes each day, working towards the goal of complete self-actualization and Nirvana.
