Meditation

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.

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.

 



SILENCE

Silence is our real nature. What we are fundamentally is only silence. Silence is free from beginning and end. It was before the beginning of all things. It is causeless. Its greatness lies in the fact that it simply is.

In silence all objects have their homeground. It is the light that gives objects their shape and form. All movement, all activity is harmonized by silence.

Silence has no opposite in noise. It is beyond positive and negative. Silence dissolves all objects. It is not related to any counterpart which belongs to the mind. Silence has nothing to do with mind. It cannot be defined but it can be felt directly because it is our nearness. Silence is freedom without restriction of centre. It is our wholeness, neither inside nor outside the body. Silence is joyful not pleasurable. It is not psychological. It is feeling without a feeler. Silence needs no intermediary.

Silence is Holy. It is healing. There is no fear in silence. Silence is autonomous like love and beauty. It is untouched by time. Silence is meditation, free from and intention,free from anyone who meditates. Silence is the absence of oneself; or rather, silence is the absence of the absence.

Sound which comes from silence is music. All activity is creative when it comes from silence. It is constantly a new beginning. Silence precedes speech and poetry and music and all art. Silence is the homeground of all creative activity; what is truly creative is the word, is truth. Silence is the Word. Silence is Truth.

The one established in silence lives in constant offering, in prayer without asking, in thankfulness, in continual love. (Peter Harrison)
