12 Simple Tips for Meditation

Just like dreams are created through our conscious and subconscious energy, our life is also a product of our conscious or unconscious energy. Meditation is a non-religious, spiritual science of awakening inner consciousness. 

We all create our reality through our consciousness, although not everyone realizes this fact. For humanity to awaken into a more conscious state meditation should be an essential daily practice for every person. This will enable us to make more conscious choices for better wellbeing, peace, joy and love so that we improve every aspect of life.

Anyone can meditate with these simple tips:
1. You may begin practice of meditation at a quiet place where you are not disturbed

2. Close your eyes gently and look within in a relaxed and alert posture

3. Observe your sensations, feelings and mental thoughts without judging them

4. Breathe in and breathe out naturally and observe your breath

5. Observe yourself, who is feeling, who is thinking, who is breathing

6. As your thoughts reduce slowly find silent space in your mind for inner peace

7. Witness yourself as your inner consciousness beyond body and mind

8. Spend time with your inner self, begin with 30 min to one hour daily

9. For establishing routine you may choose the same time everyday if it works for you

10. Some people find it easier to meditate on a light stomach

11. With practice you can meditate anywhere at anytime by being aware of inner self

12. Special techniques, chants, music, clothing, mats, mudras, aromas, gurus or décor are not always necessary although they help to induce a meditative state sometimes

Six Ways How Meditation Can Save the World

Meditation is a daily essential practice of inner stillness and peace that can illuminate our consciousness. Our life just like our dreams, is a manifestation of our conscious or subconscious mind. When we meditate we transform the unconscious into pure consciousness and become more aware of how we are creating our universe from within. If this subject was an adequate part of our learning at home or schools, we would certainly see the following changes in our world:

  1. Consumerism to Creativity: Totally dependent on things outside for fulfillment, we saw how mindless consumerism including unhealthy food and lifestyles eroded the natural resources of our planet. What if people found peace and contentment within themselves and enjoyed the beauty of nature instead of destroying it for selfish short-term gains? Through meditation we have more mindfulness where we resonate with the vibration of creator consciousness. Through a love of nature we enjoy the universe with inner balance instead of splurging on artificial things to fulfill hollow lives. We start creating more beauty, joy and abundance instead of being mere victims of consumerism.earth1
  2. Disease to Well-being: Stress and strain of living a busy life along with pollution has affected most of us to some or the other degree in the modern world. Diseases such as cancer, heart attacks, obesity, diabetes, asthma, allergies and many associated illnesses have gripped individuals who believe that hospitals and medications are the solutions to the problem. Truth is that the root cause of the issues we are facing are in our own lifestyle and daily practices. When we meditate and return to nature, we start manifesting healthier lives and choose the right places to live in, the right foods to eat, the right sleep schedules and intuitive living and holistic healing to prevent diseases and create more permanent wellness from deep within.yoga1
  3. Crime to Compassion: Harming others is impossible when we learn to be kind from within instead of only through outer rules imposed from authorities. When we begin to discover our inner self through meditation and peacefulness, we automatically become more kind and compassionate towards ourselves and this reflects in the way we treat others. We enjoy gentleness and loving energy instead of negative thoughts. We no longer indulge in overthinking, leave alone plotting, scheming or hurting others.kind
  4. Corruption to Truth: Even in what used to be spiritual countries once upon a time, we have witnessed the heights of bribery, lawlessness, dishonesty and corruption. This is because our true inner spirituality and inner truth were replaced by outer religion, outer rituals and rites, without an understanding of the inner laws or ethics that are the core of our own awakened heart. With an inner awakening through meditation we can rediscover our own inner truth within our spirit. We become a witness to ourselves and are honest and sincere even when no-one else is looking by becoming more mature and responsible towards ourselves.eyes
  5. Addictions to Freedom: It is not only drugs and alcohol that are addictive but also gadgets, wi-fi, foods, media, movies, cosmetics, thoughts and people. Not all the things we are used to are good for us. Through meditation and inner awakening we discover the universe is indeed within us and we need not depend on anything from outside to set us free or provide us any thrill or joy. We discover the source of true joy and happiness from the depths of our spirit. We begin to liberate our soul from all the burdens and chains that weighed us down.meditate
  6. Violence to Peace: Anger and violence are products of an unfulfilled spirit that seeks vengeance or domination. Use of power to rule over others has been a part of society only because people have not yet discovered that ‘others’ is illusion and all of us are actually One. We discover a loving connection with the universe through meditation to be at peace instead of judging, condemning, avenging or destroying ourselves. Imagine if everyone learnt meditation and discovered their inner treasures of peace and love how different the world would be!dove-2967593_960_720

Six Ways To Being Our Authentic Self

In ordinary life we come across many people, each one wearing many masks. We all put-on our smiles and suppress our tears because ‘someone might be watching’. We refuse to feel our own emotions and barely know ourselves leave alone our neighbours or ‘friends’. Here are some ways we can drop the act and get closer to being who we actually are.

1. Spending Time With Ourself: Imagine you are alone, without your mobiles, laptops and in a place where there are no shops, restaurants or cinema halls to entertain you constantly. How long until you die of boredom? If we cannot be with ourself for even a few minutes, how can we get to know the ‘real self’? We need to truly enjoy getting to know ourself first before we can develop authentic relationships with others. Real happiness begins in the silent space of our own heart.alone1

2. Expressing Emotions Naturally: How often do people focus on being ‘polite’ and outwardly nice while holding on to unexpressed grudges and allowing misunderstandings to grow all the more. Instead if we could say what we feel with truthful kindness and without fear or hesitation, we could resolve whatever was bothering us mutually and get it out of the way early-on. Because we refrain from healthy self expression our bottled up emotions turn into ticking time-bombs that might erupt later causing much damage to ourselves and others. By allowing natural self-expression we return to our childlike self again.natural.jpg

3. Loving Our Natural Body: Do we judge ourself by our appearences and strive to be a perfect supermodel? Behind all the make-up and designer labels we might have a really beautiful person whom nobody really knows. Our natural skin and body-type is enhanced through healthy food, a happier life and a balance of physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing. Our disabilities, wounds or scars only enhance our inner beauty because they reveal our inner strength. We need to love our real face and inner beauty once again along with our natural body. body

4. Discovering Our Natural Abilities: Society, family, educators…all have their own expectations of what we should do in our life. Our careers, hobbies and talents are constantly shaped through role-models, media, parents or peers. The result – disregard for our actual self, missing out on our true life purpose and not being able to develop our inner talents or skills. By spending time with our authentic self and falling in love with who we are, we can give energy to ourself once again, regardless of our age or life situation. talent

5. Reducing Fake Interactions: A lot of us spend more time with people who might not even care about us at all, just because we expect them to help us in business or for the sake of networking. Social media becomes a place where everyone is shouting for attention, whether for likes on selfies or birthday wishes. Instead if we had even one true friend, a pet or our own self to have a truly heartfelt relationship with, we would not need thousands of false friends to exchange small-talk with. Instead of selfies and artificial greetings we could focus on self realization and deeper interactions built on love, trust and empathy. cat-2439124_960_720

6. Celebrating Ourselves: Throughout the world we have seen celebrity worship. Cinestars, television hosts, religious figures, bestselling authors..famous personalities have occupied the minds and hearts of people who are often victims of consumerism, branding and mass marketing. By loving our authentic self we can now allow attention to return to our true inner hero. We can celebrate our unique individual traits and also those of others around us. Instead of ignoring the real life talents of people who actually make a difference to our life we can honour ourselves and each other as real stars and reach out to each other more genuinely.people-2567915_960_720

FAQs On Spirituality and Self

There are many different points of views across different spiritual traditions regarding all of life, death and beyond, especially about the Self. Here are some ways to discover our inner truth based on self-introspection and deciding what feels right to you.

1. SELF CONCEPT: Is Spirituality about being Selfish or Self-centred (focusing on yourself and immediate needs) or is it about being Selfless and being a Martyr (sacrificing yourself for others)?

While some religions in the past have glorified selflessness and giving up your life for welfare of others, a few modern spiritual leaders have introduced the idea of being selfish and self-centered by putting yourself first and above all. Finding the balance between these two extreme views can feel hard to most of us.

However, the concept of Self or our True Self is all inclusive, in the sense that we care for ourself, as well as others when needed and as far as possible, while being aware that our inner consciousness can indeed expand and include in its welfare, ourself, our close family and mates, as well as our expanded universe or all that is as we learn, grow and evolve spiritually. As we learn more in our soul’s journey our idea about who we are can transform from personal or limited physicality to universal consciousness. This is however easier to appreciate intelectually than to experience holistically and most of us are still learning to heal ourself and our near ones while parallelly working on planetary and universal healing.

2. WORLD CONCEPT: Is Spirituality about being Otherworldly and disconnected from earth to the point of letting go of all things, or is it about being Worldly wise and focusing on law of attraction to have as much pleasure, wealth or success as possible?

A lot of people have wondered if our world is illusion and if there is another world which is more ‘true’ than this one over here. As such countless people believed in heaven, other-worlds, faerylands, higher dimensions where we are directly in touch wih Truth. On the opposite spectrum are people who believe in the world alone, and that whatever we have to experience happens on earth itself and because we live only once, we have to achieve as much success, fame, prosperity, enjoyment or pleasure as we can before we die. Both point of views can be hard to reconcile for most of us.

At the same time there is a new wave of realization that describes this world as well as other-worlds, as a direct manifestation of our own choices and consciousness levels. We create our universe, our heaven or hell, our life or afterlife and our next level of reality according to this point of view, and not necessarily consciously as our subconscious patterns are likely to be overwhelming. The more we meditate the more we connect with the Source of all there is and become conscious to willingly manifest or attract all our realities both worldly and other-worldly with awareness.

3. SENSITIVITY: Is Spirituality about losing all your sensitivity and being totally unaffected by anything or anyone, or is it about being super-sensitive and getting affected by everything and everyone to the point you cannot take it?

On one hand spiritual meditators say that they are detached from the world and from all thoughts, and connected with deep inner peace and bliss only, and on the other hand we have empaths and healers who can feel, sense and channel energies of people next to them or very far away, or of the planet or other beings, even if it hurts. Many of us try to walk the fine line between being detached from others and being connected with others at an emotional and heart level.

A new perscpective is that we are deeply interconnected with all beings as we are One with all and even as we feel like we are separate souls, we are all part of the One Soul or True Self. Therefore while we can feel intense emotions of others, channel energies and be able to see and feel the situations of other people, past, present or future and even other beings, we can also heal them and ourself simultaneously. As we feel the pain and suffering of others we also have the power to heal the pain and as we send healing so does a part of us receive it because the universe is within. The peace and bliss experienced as a result is the real key to liberation, instead of through detaching from everyone and being unconcerned about others.

4. YOGA: Is Spiritual Meditation about breathing techniques and exercises of the body or is it about concentration and mind?

Some spiritual churches and communities advocate concentrating or’meditating upon’ special holy words or specific images as the way to develop spiritually. Others believe in guided meditation or creative visualization for healing and manifesting a desired life, regardless of religion. At the same time there is a belief that meditation is about breathing exercises or focusing upon breath through ‘Pranayama’ , or observing our physical postures, physical exercises or ‘Hatha Yoga’ which is generally equated with Yoga, or ‘Raja yoga’ which is focused on ‘third-eye’ awakening.

The ‘inner’ view of meditation as a way of self-realization and being aware of ‘Who I Am’, or ‘I Am’ consciousness is quite different. In this point of view meditation is not about focusing on anything outside, such as words, music, images, physical sensations, mudras, eye gazing, postures, exercises, energy work or breath.  Those are various other yogas, whereas meditation is about observing your True Self ‘Within’, not limited to your physicality, mind or breath, but an ‘inner consciousness ‘ which is beyond body and mind. It is a receptive state of openness through which truth can be channeled or realized without making our mind focus on a specific object or activity. If we do begin with focusing on breath, physical action or mental activity or any specific visualization we have to let go of that and focus on simply ‘being with ourself.’

5. GOD: Is Spirituality about relating with a separate being called God above, or is it about being nice and cordial to everyone and living in harmony with outside world?

The traditional ‘theistic’ ideology that there is superior being called ‘God’ who is all-powerful beyond us, and above all of creation has dominated for millenia. We are taught by these systems that spirituality is all about devotional worship of ‘God’ and that belief in ‘God’ will lead us to heaven. We are asked to relate less with the world and more with ‘God’. On the other hand we have also been taught that we must be good to others and live our life in harmony with other people so that we have a good relationship with the world. Atheistic views on the other hand are solely ‘world’ focused with no idea about God or any superior invisible being.

The new understanding of God as not a deity to be worshipped but our True Self to be realized as our own Higher Consciousness, a Higher State of Being that is within all of us Right Now is emerging through Self Realization. The basis of this rationality is that we have all emerged from the same One and therefore contain the essence or energy within and never separate from the Source. In this sense, we need not die to be with God ‘above’ in ‘heaven’ or because God within us here and now, embodied and living as all of us and awaiting realization and awakening. We can be of loving service to the universe until our last breath and therefore unite with God while alive in whichever way we can by knowing Who We Are and Being One with Our True Self.

6. STRESS: Is spirituality about avoiding stress and responsibilities by closing our eyes or is it about taking a lot of stress and solving problems with our physical or mental efforts?

The belief that spirituality is about closing our eyes and isolating ourself from the world like an ascetic or monk is an age-old one. Some people even develop a latent anger or hate towards the world and avoid any responsibility whatsoever for their own family, society, or other creatures in an attempt to be spiritually higher or ‘holier’. At the other end of the spectrum, we have people who are highly stressed out trying to live for others, serving their families at the expense of their own health, working hard for serving corporate machinery and striving through our physical efforts or mental work to solve problems. Are they the real spiritual heroes who work out there and keep our systems going?

Spirituality as inner work, which is not stressful but a state of relaxed self-awareness and inner-transformation is now in practice. We try to neither isolate ourself through cutting off from family, friends and society and being ‘superior’, or get overworked in striving for the good of others while being stressed and drained ourself. Through our inner peace and inner joy, we discover why we are here in the world, we discover our inner source of unconditional love and kindness which is not something to ‘expect’ from the world, but to ‘accept’ within your heart to share, expand and grow in loving consciousness all our life. As we share our own inner treasure of love, peace and joy, we can relax, destress and be aware that we manifest our universe and that all beings are interconnected through our inner-self.

Who Are You In The Matrix?

Do we live in a simulation? This question is obsolete for three reasons:

  1. Ancient philosophers all over the world already said the world, our entire universe is ‘maya’ or an illusion
  2. Modern scientists and technologists have recently started to agree that the chances we are not in a simulation are too little
  3. Modern spiritual practitioners including this author have literally seen reality manifest through their mind, people, situations and world events

It is 100% true that we live in a ‘Matrix’ of energy being constantly crafted through all the stuff in our mind. It is just like being strapped in a virtual reality system that practically generates all your life experiences right out of your conscious and subconscious thoughts, beliefs and expectations. The more we gain consciousness through meditation, and free ourselves from the slavery of our unconscious mental programming that we absorbed through the world, the sooner we awaken.

The Matrix is everywhere, wherever our mind is….. even right now!

While we are in the Matrix, which means the world is a projection or hologram around us, which of the characters of the Matrix movie do you relate with the most:

  1. The Seeker: A bit like Neo who always felt there was something not real about his world, and spent night and night researching the truth, we might be yearning for the answers and who knows even connect with the Source of this reality to save the world, much like The One. After-all the world is a creation of our mind and the more we practice the more miracles we can manifest.neo
  2. The Supporter: Many of us are akin to Trinity and others in the team of the Resistance, to provide love and support to spiritual seekers and help them in discovering their powers as their family members, partners, friends and colleagues who work alongside each other as one celestial familiy.trinitymatrix
  3. The Guide: The way Morpheus sought various ‘potentials’ and guided Neo out of the Matrix by showing him his ‘real self’ and getting him unplugged out of the conditioned or programmed reality, we could be guides for those who are yet to awaken, and those who make that choice (the red pill), provided we have been awakened ourselves.Morpheus-Matrix
  4. The Deceiver: Just like Cypher who knows too well that we are in the Matrix, but chooses to keep entertaining himself in the false reality even after being freed, we could fool ourselves with fame, fortune, worldly success and pleasures of the senses only to once again forget who we are. Unfortunately many spiritual masters have been doing just that, using the Matrix to fulfil endless personal desires. cypher
  5. The Agent: Like Agent Smith and his team of controllers some of us try their best to keep people absorbed in their routine lives or enslavement to worldly goals and expectations, whether through fear based systems of religion and politics or the false glamour of media and outer beauty. Matrix-agents-h1ladyinred
  6. The Architect: Much like the sophisticated Architect in the movie, a few people actually design control systems of corporate, political or religious nature to prevent inner freedom, so much so that even seekers such as Neo find themselves in a conundrum. architect
  7. A Program: Such as the Merovingian or the Twins who are designed to carry our certain repeated patterns of behavior, MOST people are simply repeating whatever they have learnt to generate certain outputs in society and in their personal lives, sometimes appearing to lead rich and successful lives, and at other times aspiring to achieve more in the Matrix of worldly projections.merovingian
  8. The Oracle: Like the old Oracle program, who is designed to be intuitive so as to predict the mind of humans, there are several seers, psychics and prophets who reveal the past, present or future and guide seekers or programs alike, and yet remain very much a part of the Matrix mother program.oracle (1)
  9. The Machine: The AI machines that literally draw all the life force or energy out of people to keep themselves alive, our machinery of social, economic and religious systems feeds on human resources to control the planet and land through our own mind. You may have been part of this machination. machine

So now that you know what the Matrix is and what role you have been unconsciously or consciously fulfilling, what is your choice? Do you want to be free of the conditioned mind and discover who you really are? And what will you do when you discover your true self?

Positive Movie: Samadhi (Part1 – Maya, The Illusion of the Self)

We all love movies but there are only a few that have managed to enlighten and draw attention, not to the outer world of crime, glamour and superstition that we are so used to in commercial cinema, but to the inner world of the Self.

For the beginner on the path of self-realization, this is one movie we highly recommend. Even for many of us on the spiritual path, who believe we have achieved spiritual success, this film helps in discovering true spirituality which is not about spiritual style but discovering the essence of our inner self.

Samadhi Part 1 (Maya the Illusion of the Self) is the first installment of a series of films exploring Samadhi. You can purchase a high definition copy of the film for download to your computer here: http://www.innerworldsmovie.com/index… Samadhi Part 2 “It’s Not What You Think” will be coming soon.

There are aspects in this film that rely on your understanding of concepts such as the primordial spiral, the logos, akasha, kundalini which can be found in the film “Inner Worlds Outer Worlds”. This can be watched for free at www.innerworldsmovie.com

Meanwhile you can watch the free youtube version of this entire first part of Samadhi here:

Who is God in ‘Particular’?

In response to Daily Prompt: Particular

 

Particle physics may not always be able to explain our reality, because the light through which we see the world outside can be proven to be a particle if our experiment aims at proving so, or a wave if our experiment is aimed at establishing the wave theory.

Is there a ‘God Particle’ out there in the gigantic CERN experimental laboratories that may explain to us the entire story of creation?

We are made of particles. Or are we in-fact light?

Or is God a ‘Particular’ person like one of us, just much more powerful…who has simulated this entire reality of our existence here in the world through his brilliant intelligent technology as witnessed by us in the perfect design of nature?

snail-1626756_960_720

Religion can, just like the experiments of science, be contradictory at times when it attempts to define God as ‘a particular person out there in heaven’, and at the same time say that ‘God is LOVE’, because while a person seems to be of ‘particular’ form, Love is an energy we all have within us, and unlimited.

Perhaps we need to take a cue from science and realize that the way we see something, even God, is the way it will appear to us, filtered through our own level of consciousness.

Those of us who attempt to see God as an outside being that is having an absolute and unquestionable power over their reality will end up meeting more people and reading more texts that will constantly strengthen their own particular point of view time and again. Their realities will continue to be something that is not within their own creative influence but only dependent on the benevolence of this ‘particular’ being they worship. Just like experimenters in science who try to observe something with their outer eyes, they bring their own observer bias, and create their own ‘particular’ limitations based on their own ‘particular’ beliefs. Trapped in that point of view, human beings might wait for some kind of a higher power to awaken us and heal the world…waiting forever without actually being the change we seek.

When we drop all our beliefs altogether and allow ourselves to experience who we are, then alone do we start unfolding the many spirals that hide our own truth within.

crown-2852117_960_720.jpg

Meditation simply means to ‘go within‘. Looking at anything from the outside can only be like dreaming a dream and looking for the dreamer among all the characters in our own dream.

Can any ‘other’ person in our dream ever be the creator of our own dream?

One who meditates knows that he or she can never be absolutely sure that the world he or she is living in is not just like a dream. Ask yourself if science can ever find a particle that is not a wave at the core. Are we living in a hologram or matrix linked deeply with our mind? Let the arrow of awareness point back to yourself. Observe yourself.

By asking ‘Who am I?’ the dreamer realizes himself as the dreamer or the creator of this entire play around the Self.

We can for ourselves see our entire reality shifting and changing in accordance with our own thoughts, our own emotional states and our own subconscious fears or hopes. We will be able to influence our life experiences, and not just in small or insignificant ways. By transforming our own deepest fears to LOVE, we will see how everything in our life becomes more and more beautiful and loving. We do not need a scientific experiment to establish this as true. Those who meditate and discover their inner source of endless love can see it for themselves. This miraculous dream called life is for each individual, created by nothing else but their own inner vibrations.

Those who seek God outside as someone in ‘particular’ who is beyond them, do not see God as their own inner energy. Through their fear or disbelief in their own magical power of creation, they may never be able to find the magic within themselves. Afraid of a ‘demon’ or ‘devil’ who has the power of magic, how sure can they be who ‘God’ even is? Any ‘being’ may appear to us or seem to speak to us from the outside and say ‘I am God’ and dictate any kind of texts that we take as the absolute word of God. We can see for ourselves whether various religious scriptures have been able to enlighten humankind or create biases, judgments and fear of eternal condemnation.

bible.jpg

Have we all been fooled by centuries and centuries of blindness to look for a light outside when all this time the light has always been within?

Those who do look within can begin to awaken now.

 

Six Positive Benefits of Meditation and How To Practice It

Meditation is a non-religion specific, personal practice of conscious awareness in any given moment. The benefits of meditating are numerous and not limited to the following:

  1. INNER PEACE: Meditation helps us experience our own inner peace by helping us calm down and apply common sense in daily situations. Those who are peaceful from within are less likely to be restless and agitated. Inner peace reduces need for violence, crime, anger, sexual frustration or mindless imitation of celebrities or media figures. We might be focused on images and stories of violence, crime, terror, fear, drama and anger through the numerous best-selling books, blockbuster movies and plays enacted for entertainment. People and situations around us can make us upset and worried about our life or future. Meditation helps us look beyond this outer world and notice how we are absorbing energy from outside so that we can detach and choose something much more meaningful through inner awareness.
  2. SELF-CONTENTMENT: Meditation reduces need to depend on anything or anyone from the outside for happiness by helping us find inner contentment. Inner peace reduces unhealthy habits, reduces stress and therefore eliminates need for smoking, drugs or drinking as an escape or dependency. The danger of young children, teens and adults falling into the bottomless pits of negativity or addiction has been constantly around us. Sometimes people look for relationships for love and find themselves in abusive or unhappy situations instead. Fortunately we all have our inner wisdom that prevents us from taking a fall and helps us find our way back to our personal well-being through meditation.
  3. PERSONAL CONSCIENCE: Meditation develops our own innate consciousness instead of merely following any outer doctrine. Meditation improves natural intuition and helps people have inner feeling of right or wrong instead of merely following rules for the sake of rules. People naturally become heart-centered, compassionate and kind through meditation and learn how to live in balance with others and nature. Countless religions and their commandments have been ineffective in creating a peaceful and healthy world so far. Laws and enforcement have been struggling too. What we truly need is a method through which people can be aware of ethics and truth for themselves instead of having to drill it into them through laws or religion. Meditation awakens our own awareness by guiding us to the inner light.
  4. RIGHT DISCERNMENT: Meditation reduces needs for mindless consumerism preventing us from being victims of overspending or wasting our time and resources on unuseful activities. In our daily life we are constantly bombarded with information from various sources, such as media and retail outlets, vying for our attention through glamour, convenient availability and popularity. It is easy to get lost in the world by chasing our numerous desires that are not necessarily in our best interests but meant to keep us busy in diverting our resources towards unnecessary purposes that merely help those brands or celebrities become more popular and wealthy often at the expense of really important causes that deserve more attention.
  5. HIGHEST POTENTIAL: Meditation helps people experience the power of positive thinking by calming stress waves in the mind and helping them achieve better results in all areas of life. Meditation improves memory and absorption of right knowledge through better concentration. Meditation brings our innovation, creativity and our best inner talents. People who meditate regularly have been found to have life-changing experiences of greater health, success, emotional well-being, healthy relationships and joyful existence. We all deserve abundance and good-fortune regardless of religion, birth, country or background. No matter what our situations of circumstances have been so far, meditation can bring us into the ‘here and now’ of present moment awareness that frees us from past limitations of future worry by showing us our true and unlimited potential.
  6. TRUTHFUL AWAKENING: While science focuses on helping us gain awareness about the world outside us and religion talks about a creator outside us, meditation helps us observe our own inner-world by helping us observe our-self.  We can observe our body, our physical activities, our mental processes, our emotional states and finally learn that who we are is beyond all this. We learn to observe the one who is breathing, the one who is thinking, the one who is observing…and experience who we are. Slowly we begin to see how the ‘outer world’ observed by science and our senses is merely projecting through our mental thoughts, our unconscious inner-talk and inner emotional states. We can clearly notice synchronicity between our thoughts and our realities and witness how we have manifested or attracted various situations ourself. We can even change our reality at our will and finally be at peace with our-self and one with our creator self which is within us.bible

HOW-TO MEDITATE:

  • Meditation does not require any special skills. religious belief, special clothing, accessories or props.

thoth.jpg

True meditation is:

  • Non-religion specific and non-denominational
  • Based on a common universal value of inner peace
  • Not limited to any brand or ‘system’ of meditation
  • Simple and not technically focused
  • Easy to achieve – simply pay attention to yourself at any time or place
  • Brings life-changing awakening of consciousness in daily practice
  • Helps us be intuitively aware from within to make our own positive choices
  • Helps us be incharge of our own emotional and mental states in routine life
  • Prevents dependency on or blame on outside things, people or situations
  • Leads us towards a healthier and happier world created through our own choices

know

There are numerous ‘brands’ and ‘systems’ of meditation being promoted all over the world, however my suggestion is to keep it simple. No special ‘type of meditation’ or ‘particular spiritual system’ or ‘tradition specific initiation’ is needed in order to practice meditation.
