Special a soul who attains contentment which is the fruit of the seed of speciality.
Well into the New Year January 8 already.. I’ve been reflecting on gratitude followed with prayer, fasting, meditation.
It’s definitely evolved into one of the most enlightening experiences of my life. So of course I want to share some of my experiences on this amazingly insightful journey of meditation.
Let your attention rest on the flow of your breath. Listen to it, follow it, but make no judgments on it. The goal is to allow the thoughts/voices in your mind to gradually fade away to an extremely peaceful state of mind.
Silence your mind. Once you’ve trained your mind to focus on just one thing at a time, the next step is focus on nothing at all, essentially “clearing” your mind. This requires tremendous discipline but it is the pinnacle of meditation. After focusing on a single point as described in the previous step, you can either cast it away, or observe it impartially and let it come and then go, without labeling it as “good” or “bad”. Take the same approach to any thoughts which return to your mind until silence perseveres. Wiki.com
I’ve been so profoundly moved during the silence I’ve only ever attained through meditation, I will continue to share little gifts and my experience and maybe at one point dedicate an entire page, for now it’s a gift of awareness.
Namaste, Happy 2013 .. May your blessings be many and Green ☼
