Meditation is a period of silence. It can be a form of prayer, but not one of thanksgiving or petition. It is allowing. Allowing yourself to return to the respite and peace of your Creator. Allowing your Creator to fill you with truth. It is a conscious choice to have no thought for a period of time. It is resting in the light of your own divinity.
It is no longer necessary to chant or sit in an upright lotus position, although it is perfectly find to do so. When we define meditation as a certain pose or a certain tone, we limit the expansion of our meditation. We limit our ability to spend a quiet moment in meditation as we have put conditions on what a meditation should be based on others opinions. Sure, these beliefs did serve us at one time, but the energies available to us now are powerful and the conditions for meditation have changed.
The goal of meditation is simply to rest in the quiet awareness of oneness. "I and the Creator are one." This quiet awareness can be done while sitting in the car, finding a quiet place during a coffee break, relaxing on the beach with others around, sitting in your kitchen drinking coffee, etc. The point is, take a moment or two or fifteen minutes of your day and stop all thought. Receive a "download". We must be alone with our Creator and experience allowing. Allowing ourselves to return our consciousness to the place where we realize our divinity. There, we will find our true selves.
We must experience aloneness to discover who we truly are. We must learn to act from an intuitive level, not an emotional one. This must start from within and cut the cords to others. Withdraw your energy streams from all outside influence.
Find a quiet place. Take 5 deep breaths (in with your nose, out with your mouth).
- Concentrate on the feeling of your right hand
- Listen to a soft tone in the background of your space
- concentrate on your breathing
- concentrate on the feeling of your forehead
- whispering out loud or silently, "allow"
In each moment of your day, begin to bring yourself inward. Live in the moment. Stop thinking of tomorrow or yesterday. Be mindful of the experience with all of your senses. Be like a child eating ice cream, their focus never leaves the moment and they thoroughly love each spoonful. This is mindfulness, living and enjoying the moment, savoring its tastes, smells and sensations. This is a form of meditation, oneness in the happenings of the moment.
Eventually, meditation will become easy. Eventually, meditation will no longer be necessary for you will live it in every moment of your day. You will learn to never disconnect with "Oneness." Do not make it difficult, it's not.
The ultimate goal of meditation is to become a conveyer of love and light, heart centered soul centered harmony. This is your true self.
Thank you for spending your time here,
we wish you moments of joy, all day.
