Meditation

Commentary by Peter Shepherd
Meditation
“Quieten the mind and the soul will speak.” ~ Ma Jaya Sati Bagavati
We're a combination of the human animal (an advanced body-mind) and an incarnate spirit, connected through its nature to universal consciousness or God, therefore a resource of tremendous knowing. Often the spirit is out of the picture in our consciousness, submerged by thoughts and feelings, but we can become more mindful and aware of this dimension of our being, and meditation is one of the best methods to achieve this spiritual growth.
“You need not leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. You need not even listen, just learn to become quiet, still, and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked.” ~ Franz Kafka
Nothing esoteric about meditation. Just be there and observe your breath and thoughts and the present moment. Observe your body and mind as though at a distance, without any attachment. Just realize you are not those things you are observing - and at the same time, know you are everything that you are observing. Oneness - being nothing and everything - is an enlightened state. You don't have to be an Indian guru nor sit in a temple. And you don't have to have an intellectual explanation.
“Let us not look back in anger, nor forward in fear, but around in awareness.” ~ James Thurber
Another take on being in the moment, with a quiet mind. Meditation sessions help, but the best meditation is when you practice being mindful as you go about your daily life, with all the buttons that presses. And it's not to suppress your responses, it's simply to recognize and accept what actually is, without resistance, and let those fears and resentments just float on down the river of time and out of your life. Replace them with appreciation of the imnnumerable gifts that the present offers us. Real-life meditation. Authentic prayer.
“True meditation is about being fully present with everything that is - including discomfort and challenges. It is not an escape from life.” ~ Craig Hamilton
It's rare to be fully awake, mindful and conscious through all the peaks and troughs of life, but meditation can help to develop that capacity.
“Meditation is to be aware of every thought and of every feeling, never to say it is right or wrong but just to watch it.” ~ Krishnamurti
Let judgment go, life isn't an exam.

The Many Benefits of Meditation ~ by Owen K. Waters

The hustle and bustle of today's fast-paced world almost makes you want to cry out, "Where can I find some peace and quiet?" Meditation has become a very popular answer to the need for balance in today's fast-moving society. Meditation was designed primarily for spiritual development, rather than mental or physical benefits. However, by nourishing the spiritual self, its benefits are then reflected throughout the human mind and body. Continues
