Generally when starting to meditate the mind is very busy and tries to pull us away with many internal and external distractions. Using an anchor like a sacred word, the breath, or even a scripture can help us to quiet the mind and stay in the present moment. After about 10 minutes the mind tends to slow down and you are able to keep your awareness more readily in the here and now. Sometimes during this state you drip off into pure presence. I like to say this is the pure presence of God. During this time, it may feel like you are in bliss, but this is often fleeting. This is what finding your own meditating stage means.
