Meditation and mindfulness techniques

Choosing the right meditation techniques

meditacion_en_grupoWhen properly chosen by a spiritual master, a person’s mantra incorporates that moment when the individual soul parted from the universal soul and became individualized. That very action, that very motion, created a sound. So the mantra that is given to a person incorporates the very first impulse of an individual being since he was individuated, his present state of evolution, and the full range of that which he can attain.

Meditation gives the mind the quietude to push aside that whole universe which is the mind, and allow a greater force to come through. For this the heart, the core of one’s personality, is the vehicle or the entrance. This process starts at the level of the mind, which consciously makes the initial effort, which requires discipline, until the mind goes to a deeper level. That conscious mind must ignore the repositories of all the samskaras which are in the subsconscious, so as to create a direct path to the superconscious, the finest level of relativity, which is the truest reflection of the light. When this level is reached the reflection shines through to the conscious mind, and enlivens the conscious mind. When the conscious mind is enlivened by such reflection, it gradually draws the true light of the spirit to it. Then the conscious mind too can experience the unfolded spirit, which is forever unfolded at the finest superconscious level.

Things at their subtle levels are more powerful. As we go to the deeper recesses of the mind and gather greater force and power, we use this strength to overcome the conditioning of the mind.

When you stand by the seashore the sea seems so rough, with the waves high and turbulent; but in an airplane a mile or two up . . . the sea seems quiet. Like that, when we begin to expand our awareness through meditation practices our daily problems fall into perspective.

Meditation is the easy way of cleaning oneself of samskaras, the impressions that have gathered in the ego itself.

Meditating is like performing an operation, using an anesthetic so that it doesn’t hurt to cleanse oneself. But if the operation was performed without using an anesthetic the cut would be very, very painful.

You look at this flower now. After some months of proper meditation, if you see the same flower, it will assume a different quality for you. It will be a means of providing you with far greater joy, appreciation, and beauty than would have been perceived before. Therefore the saying, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” There are many simple sayings and injunctions that we hear, of which we do not understand the true depth or the true worth.
