Innovative meditation in Yoga for Senior citizens

Watch nature and enjoy.
Observe people and absorb.
Concentrate the mind to analyse and realise change:
Analyse the change in body and mind since childhood,
Realise change is everywhere; change is inevitable; embrace change in joy and bliss.

About the Innovative meditation in Yoga, I have refered the text books on ‘Meditations’ and ‘Sure Ways to Self-Realization’ by Swami Satyananda Saraswati of Bihar School of Yoga.

There are two types of meditation: passive and active. Active meditation is that which occurs when one performs one`s daily duties, when one walks, talks, eats and so on. This in fact is the aim of yoga, to allow one to meditate while being involved in worldly activities. It does not mean that the activities will not be done, or not done with enthusiasm. In fact the work or external activities will be performed with more efficiency and energy. Active meditation can be developed by performing the passive traditional meditional practices. Successful passive meditation will automatically lead to active meditation.
