Meditation is an urgent need of the soul, as food, drink and rest is for the body. Meditation aligns your body, your mind and your soul into the large, eternal entity you are. It heals mental, physical and soul imbalances, without you having to “do” anything.
I sit in a comfortable position on a chair, my lower back supported by the back rest, my legs standing on the ground, my hands resting in each other, thumbs touching, in a quiet spot. Start with 15 minutes. I close my eyes and concentrate on my breath, walking away from my thoughts. If thoughts arise, patiently walk away from them without emotion. Without getting angry at them – or yourself. Just walk away, breath. I am a quietly burning candle, simple and pure energy. At some point you will no longer feel your body. You will not try to concentrate your breath any longer in an awkward calm breathing, but the air breathes YOU, you are being “breathed” by the eternal entity that is underlying your physical form. You are now on the tractor beam, being drawn into nothingness and it feels great and peaceful. Everything is just RIGHT. At some point you become aware of not only being transported by a tractor beam but you ARE the tractor beam. You are the mover and the moved. This is the perfect place to be. Stay there as long as you like. Something in you will tell you when its time to return.
Meditation nourishes me and connects me with my self. It reassures me that I am on my path. That my path is mine alone and cannot be compared to anyone else’s. My awareness is mine alone and cannot be compared to anyone else’s. The teacher is inside of me. Once I have connected to this knowing inside myself, everyone and everything is my teacher. They are all extensions of the teacher inside me and my ego no longer gets in my way.
