Purposeful Meditation

Updated on March 24, 2014

Purposeful Meditation will lead to acknowledgement of your true self. Only then can you experience the bliss and divine within you.

The difficulty of meditation correlates with the degree of following:

1. Degree of self (ego) recognition
2. Degree of attachment to the past and future
3. Degree of attachment to suffering
4. Degree of likes and dislikes to the materialistic world

Guide towards gradually developing meaningful meditation sessions:

1. Sit still for short periods of time and increase gradually
2. Count breathes initially - this helps to keep the ego-centered mind away
3. Notice the energy created within
4. Realize the inner peace that emanates outward
5. This inner peace will radiate outward in unexplainable ways to interactions and form around (to acquaintances, strangers, and objects around you).

Inner Peace will bring you to understand the truth

1. A recognition of being in the present keeps your mind from agonizing over the past and future.
2. Materialistic wealth will start to bring less aliveness and satisfaction as this inner peace.
3. The inner peace will start to prevail over you outside of the mediation period and the mediation place ( may it be a temple, mosque, church, etc).
4. From this inner peace will emerge an internal intelligence (intuition is a form of this intelligence).
5. This level of intelligence is diminished by the level of unconsciousness.
6. All beings are capable of understanding this highest level of intelligence.

This inner intelligence guides every part of our life and has a given directed path. Any resistance to this path causes suffering. The act of surrendering allows for one to be in tune with the path. This is where the phrase "dying into the river of existence" comes from. The ego unites with the unmanifest and letting go of control occurs spontaneously as one surrenders.

Open yourself up to the divine

Only when you break yourself down (void of hang-ups, stresses, imperfections, desires/wants, resistance), will the truth come through you. Only then can it shine and reveal itself. It appears only when the little self must disappears- either through suffering or mediators. Often times at death, one looses their sense of self and then the light can easily come through.

If you are not the driver of this life, steering the wheel, then realize that this life is to be enjoyed and accept it. You don't know where it's going to lead. Follow that inner inclination.

      I love meditation - I used to think you had to do it for hours but now I do short bursts of around ten minutes and it's so refreshing. Voted up and beautiful.
