Meditation – inner peace
April 3, 2007
Last night, I mediated for nearly half an hour. There are a few issues that I need to calm down and let the intuition come and tell me what should be the next course of action. Logical reasonings are just not enough for matters of the heart and soul. Only your own spirit and intuition can tell you what to do because they are part of you.
I think I have improved on meditation because I couldn’t go a half an hour one without giving up. Today is the longest one ever meditated, wow, it feels good if you know it. Before you can meditate all day long, you must first practice by sitting quietly — to get the idea. Try to sit every day at the same time, once in the morning and once at night. Sit for about 15 minutes to begin with, longer if you prefer but not too long. This is the only way to go about. Most people are can’t keep still for more than 10 minutes!
Try to extend the periods of concentration and reduce the time spent lost in thoughts. As you learn to do this, eventually you will be able to maintain this bright awareness for the entire meditation period with few thoughts arising. Then you will be able to take this bright awareness out into the world and remain in a constant state of meditation, using thought only when necessary.
Thanks Maria Duval for the guidance.
