MEDITATION IS FOR EVERYONE. 


WE ARE BORN WITH THE ABILITY TO BE IN MEDITATIVE AWARENESS, LOOK AT A NEW BORN BABY.

MEDITATION IS A RETURN TO THAT NATURAL STATE OF PEACE AND JOY


Meditation is learning to still the mind and overcome the obstacles that cover your essential nature of peace.

Meditiation is a tool for living and can help everyday problems and health concerns, its depth is limitless. Meditation can be life changing - my first book Hidden Path charters my faltering steps and my second book Sowing Seeds builds on what I learnt. Meditation is life changing and life enchancing if you allow it to be. It requires no special place or cost and is available to anyone. It encompasses all religions, focusing on the source and Oneness of all. Get started now with my breath awareness audio.

MEDITATION HAS BEEN PRACTICED AROUND THE WORLD FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS.

IT HAS BEEN TRIED AND TESTED BY THE ANCIENT RSIS, SEERS AND MYSTICS.

ORIGINALLY IT WAS AN ORAL TRADITION, THEN 3,000 YEARS AGO WAS WRITTEN DOWN.

THESE ANCIENT TEXTS EXIST TODAY AND STILL REMAIN AS RELEVANT.

SANSKRIT IS A BEAUTIFUL MEDIUM TO EXPLORE THEM WITH.

Ten clearly observable effects of meditation

 

1.   Good physical health and quick recovery in the case of illness.

 

2.  A sense of renunciation of useless things.


3.  A proper sense of proportion in life.


4.  Strengthening of the faculties of experience.


5.  Forgiveness which depends on not letting the mind get excited. 

     (From this kindness and compassion increase naturally into Universal Love).


6.  Loss of sense of separation


7.  Freedom from greed, envy and malice.


8.  Freedom from fear.

 

9.  Increase of self-confidence.

 

10. Gloominess diminishes.  You see the bright side of things.

 

These are the symptoms of bright meditation and these are the qualities that are most difficult to obtain in any other way. 

But with this they come naturally as hunger is naturally satisfied just from eating.

 

If one of these effects is observable, then the initiate is enjoying good meditation.
