Daily Shorty | 7/6/14

Another Example of the Meditation Process....

So, here is the process that, if we were in your physical shoes, we would utilize:
 Every day, for 10 or 15 minutes, and not for much more time than that,
 we would sit quietly by ourselves in some pleasant place where we would not
 be interrupted—maybe under a tree, maybe in our vehicle,
maybe in the bathroom or garden...

We would do our best to shut down our physical senses.
In other words, we would draw the curtains if the light was too bright;
we would close our eyes; we would choose a quiet place.

We would be aware of breathing air into our lungs,
and we would be conscious of breathing out. We would concentrate on long breaths
 in and long breaths out. We would breathe air in, and when we thought it
was all our lungs would comfortably hold, we would softly bring still more air in.
And then, at a place of full expansion of our lungs, we would take a long,
slow, delicious moment to let the air out.

Our intention would be nothing more than being in this moment
and being consciously aware of our breathing, nothing to do other than breathe—
not fixing breakfast, not combing hair, not wondering how someone is doing,
not thinking about yesterday, not worrying about tomorrow,
 not focusing on anything in this moment except air in and air out.

This is a state of allowing where, for just a few moments, you stop running the show.
You stop trying to make anything happen.
This is the time when you are saying to your Source Energy, to your Inner Being,
to your GOD (or whatever you want to call it): Here I am, in a state of allowing.
I’m allowing Source Energy to flow purely through me.
Fifteen minutes of effort will change your life because it will allow the Energy
that is natural to you to flow.
You will feel better in the moment, and you will feel more energized when you come out of it.


"Meditation is the dissolution of thoughts in Eternal awareness or Pure consciousness without objectification, knowing without thinking, merging finitude in infinity." ~Voltaire
