How To Soar!

Even when the air currents are ascending, no bird can soar except by outstretched wings.  - The Urantia Papers

who are we?

This quote is inspiring on two fronts!

1) That there is a Universal (or Life) current which we can attach ourselves to, which will take us to wherever we need to go.

2) And that we must make the minimum effort required to participate in that Universal program!

To connect with this Life source meditation helps tremendously. Meditation Tip #2: Sit down (at least thrice a day or when you need to feel the calm), close your eyes and take 3 deep breaths. The breaths should be long drawn, held for a few seconds and then exhaled slowly. This relaxes the body and starts to relax the mind. Breathe naturally now. Put your full attention on your breath. Watch and experience the breath as it goes in/out. You might lose track and get lost in a thought. Notice this too. And then put your attention back on the breath. Practice for 5 minutes!

How To Meditate…

Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It's a way of entering into the quiet that's already there—buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day. - Neale Donald Walsch

definition

There are numerous definitions of meditation. One popular idea is that thoughts must cease for us to enter a meditative state. Certainly that could be classified as meditation; however meditation is also:

* Discovering and resting in the peace that resides within us

* Making direct contact with God

stillness

This peace that is nestled just under our stream of thoughts can be experienced. The trick is to be in a state of non-judgmental and relaxed awareness. That means we just sit and be. We become relaxed in body and mind. We stay alert, i.e. not fall asleep and maintain awareness of all that goes on inside us, without manufacturing new thoughts about any of it. Once we experience this peace it’s a great opportunity to:

* Pray and make direct contact with God

* Seek inspiration, which appears in the form of sudden thoughts and ideas

* Do creative thinking and planning
