Keep the Procedure Simple

September 29, 2013

Remembering that the purpose of meditation practice is to allow unfoldment of superconscious states, we are wise to adhere to the basics and avoid preoccupation with matters which cannot be supportive of our highest aspirations. Meditation is practiced to facilitate relaxation, calmness, and spiritual awakening. Anything we think or do that contributes to stress, mental confusion, emotional conflict, or illusions of any kind, is not in our best interest and should be renounced. Just as anxiety about results should be avoided when meditating, so there should be no anxiety about results after meditation. It is all right to be aware of the fact that the most recent meditation session was enjoyable and beneficial, or to be aware that improvement in practice is needed, but it is not helpful to overly analyze meditation experiences. Also not recommended is discussion with others about one’s meditation experiences. Our inner growth is a personal matter and our growing relationship with the Infinite is subtle and intimate, and neither should be taken lightly or subjected to the opinions of others who do not apprehend our intentions.

Speak this positive affirmation:

Calm, centered and peaceful, I meditate every day as spiritual duty without expectation of results.

Have a good day . . . and a great life!
