   This is the third part of a three part online course in Basic Meditation

   The course is devided into three sections. Section one deals with what
meditation is and how it plays a part in the lives of those who use it.
Section two will go into the techniques and tools of meditation. Section three
gives suggestions on how to use what you've learned, in everyday life. A list
of books for further reading on the subject, will be given at the end of
section three.

   This material may be reproduced and distributed only if the header, by
line, and BBS info remain part of any such reproduction.


   In this third and final section we will discuss some ways in which you may
use what you've learned, in your daily life.

   The most obvious use of the techniques you have learned, is relaxation.
During the course of the day, many of us have moments when the pressure
becomes almost to much. When this happens, we often can't deal with other
people or projects the way we should. The breathing exercises you learned in
section two can help at these times.

   It doesn't require alot of time or absolute quiet as does your meditation
practice. All that is required is about five minutes and relative privacy. At
these times, begin doing your rhythmic breathing and visualize a place which
is calm and refreshing. This simple and quick exercise, can work wonders to
help you regain control in a hectic situation.

   Another way in which meditation is used is in the development of psychic
powers. There are several books on the subject, listed at the end of this
section. Most of those who teach about the use and development of these
abilities, agree that meditation is necessary to any such study. Again the
reason for this is that meditation allows you to reach an altered state of
conciousness. In this altered state your mind is more open to such phenomenon
as telepathy. If you should decide to persue studies in this direction, please
seek the help of someone trained in these areas.

   One final use I will suggest is visualization. Meditation can be used as a
tool for problem solving. While in a meditative state of mind, you have the
ability to take any situation and manipulate it. By that I mean you can
mentally play the out the situation using several different solutions. Then,
you can pick the one which seems to best solve the problem. While the use of
meditation can help you deal with problem solving more effectively, it is not
infallible. All it can do is allow you to think more clearly and concisely
about the problem at hand.

   Well that concludes this study on meditation. I hope you have gained
something usefull from this course. It has been by no means, a full
explanation of the subject. There is much more to learn than could be covered
in this short series and It is my hope that you will want to continue your
studies into this fascinating and usefull skill.

   More studies of this type will be developed in the near future. The New
Atlantis BBS will continue to post these studies as an ongoing service to it's
users. Please feel free to leave suggestions on the BBS about subjects you
would like to see covered.
