Get ready for an adventure through inner space. That's what it is like passing through the outer rooms of meditation, and walking out into the beautiful gardens, bright with sunshine; unlimited sky.
When sitting down in meditation at the beginning you could be mostly preoccupied with feeling comfortable and carefully commandeering your mind to a mantra or even breathing.
There comes a time that you pass through these preliminaries and out into the open vastness within your mind. In a way it is like learning to play the piano, carefully following the written musical notations. The day comes when you can set aside the aid of the music book, and play by heart. And that is a joyful experience that I've had.
All the preparations and beginning stages of meditation lead to the experience within, that is more open and vast than looking out into the physical world.
The secret to opening and walking through the inner doorway into your expansive self is to practice regular meditation, allowing yourself to go deeper over time.
Set fear of the unknown aside. Let your mind travel the inner corridor into the unlimited experience within. You will not pass away, you will, rather, pass into a place that always has the answers you need for living a life in harmony. Harmony within yourself, harmony in relations with others and the world.
Go to this place of harmony in deep meditation and draw from the ever-flowing river of peace and knowledge to bring balance into your life. Always within we can find the answers we need to pressing questions. Take the time to walk through the inner doorway in meditation.
