An prolonged and uninterrupted concentration on a individual objective, with this objective being the only idea in your head, may be a near definition of meditation. If you can practice this for more 5 minutes with one exclusive object in your mind and ALL your concentration being aimed continuously on it particular object, then you may have attained a good novices level of meditation-practice. How easy or how difficult it can become to do this, depends on the object you concentrate on. If you keep God in your mind it shall become quite easy, as God is Passion, peace, harmony, tranquility, wellness and all the potent positive aspects you may conceive of.
Why do people contemplate?
Daily life may often cause lots of turmoil in your mind and emotions. Stress with your job, your family and political or economical situation of your surroundings of your life may cause lots of anxiety, fears, emotions and thoughts, acting like a storm inside you. Mankind on earth has most often forgotten to live according to spiritual laws and Divine principles of God's creation. So they are sometimes creating Karma several times each day almost on a continuous basis.
Another grounds for meditation is an advanced spiritual proficiency. Extended meditation by completely concentrating on an object, until becoming one with the object of meditation leads to the awareness about the object. This principle is named Samyama. It is a technique that may be used to get an answer about important spiritual questions, or find solutions for important situations of your life. But as a novice you may practice thousands of hours of meditation before you should become one with the aim of meditation. What is slowing down your success? Your anxieties, your expectations about the answer, your desires, preoccupation - your ego.
So in place of exercising originally of your spiritual path Samyama, you would get much better results if you start persistently working on your spiritual advancement by resolving all your ego, your wishes,... in the fire of Divine Passion. If once all your personality has been filled with the Divinity of your soul - made to the image of God - then you may need only minutes or seconds to reach knowledge about an object, since one with God, you may have easy access of all the knowledge you truly need. Intuition is the sophisticated method of accomplishing knowledge about important objects in God's creation. You simply look at something and you may instantly know what might be significant for the moment.

Meditation methods change your focus on God or Love.
Some spiritual traditions exercise meditation by concentrating on vacuum. This is rather unmanageable, because there is absolutely no void in the total creation. So these person utilizing successfully this strategy often are hanging between two centers of awareness, i.e. between physical and astral body, being neither in physical nor in astral body. Or between astral and causal body, again being neither in astral nor in causal body. You may somehow compare it to the gear of a car. The normal process is to move from one center up to the following higher until you are one with God-consciousness. Like switching in a machine from 1st gear to 2nd and 3rd up to the highest one when accelerating. Like in a automobile before switching to the next higher gear, a driver usually speeds to a certain speed before switching to the next gear. A similar rule works in meditation. Before you can move from one center of awareness to the next higher one, you may definitely need to increase the vibration of your present consciousness and all its pertaining parts in your spiritual body and its aura. This point is difficult if ever to be attained when concentrating on emptiness, besides the basic fact that there is absolutely no vacancy in the least, so you may waste some time to look for something in-existing. How can you proceed from one point to another when there is no orientation course, no thrust that keeps you occupation a constant way with all your spiritual practice session.
Meditation methods with Mantras.
Others are meditating by making use of a large variety of Mantras, or by using the icon of a Guru or divinity to concentrate on. Some Mantras are associated with deities, others with "metaphysical gifts". When you concentrate on Mantras, deities or Gurus, it may cause the result of you becoming one with the object of your concentration. Contemplation as a result of extended concentration is leading to Samyama - becoming one with the target of concentration. If this is what you are practicing, you may realize one day that you have accomplished your destination, being in heavenly Worlds and universes - far away from God. That is the reason why in many Holy scriptures there is a warning - you should never have other deities beside me. Striving for unity with any deity may lead to this achievement, but this can and may lead to being far away from the source of all sources for a long time before you may see how far you are from your intended goal.
Kriya Yoga is about God and Love
|Learn Kriya Yoga to feel God's Love|
The best meditation technique always is to focus on God.
Since the only genuine spiritual goal can be unity with Supreme Being, the Infinite, the Source of all sources, it should be your true and honest intention to have only God in mind when meditating. God is the Source of all sources, the Infinite beyond any creation and manifestation, thus God has the highest vibration of all. Everything is made of and by God. But any deity is a manifestation, like a highly evolved soul. God, the Infinite source of Divine Love in your mind keeps you speeding up steadily, while refilling your psyche with Divine peace and Passion over and over, dissolving in Divine Love anything else in your aura and mind. When you truly start to see the principle of Samyama, then you definitely may realize why it is critical to concentrate on Supreme Being and nothing else.
