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

an imperative

No matter how life is going for us there’s an essential need to connect with ‘All That Is’. God provides the strength we need to live through tough times as well the perspective we need when things are going really well. Let’s not forget what’s most important. Let’s attempt to connect daily…

prayer –> stillness = connection

God speaks to us, he does so constantly. Prayer allows us to make that connection. Immediately after our mental effort to speak to the Father Of All in prayer, we should relax and just sit in still receptivity. This is the most powerful way to connect with divinity and ultimate reality. God sustains us all…
