The term, meditative state of mind, can refer to several ideas. When someone is sitting quietly and appears to be reflecting we could say they look meditative. Also, when we are sitting in meditation and slip into that quiet place of stillness, we are in a meditative state of mind.
An advantage of nurturing our meditative state is that it is the quietest, while at the same time creative state, where we can draw on new or deeper ideas. Going into a meditative state layer by layer uncovers more information that we can bring out for usefulness in our projects.
A meditative state gives us an expanded view of life and circumstances that we may not see in the regular waking state. We have heard about the different mental states we all have, such as, waking, deep sleep, dreaming, unconscious, super-conscious.
Meditation is our state of consciousness where we are physically at rest, while mentally awake.
Not being bothered with physical, mental, and emotional issues gives us the space to zoom in like a rocket launched into inner space, a place where there are no boundaries to our thinking.
By spending time in meditation we become adept at going deeply within at a moment's notice. For example, I lived at Yogaville, Virginia, for a year. After meditating regularly in the LOTUS, Light of Truth Universal Shrine, even as I would start to sit in meditation pose I would enter the inner light where we all abide without limitation as spiritual brothers and sisters. It was joyful that my time in meditation paid off in being able to commune spiritually with expanded consciousness so easily.
In summary, take time to develop your meditative state to creatively solve problems, and also enjoy the feeling of communion in your spiritual state with others on the planet now, and those who have gone beyond.
We come from expansive spirit
We live in spirit even while in physical form
We return to expansive spirit without physical form
And in a meditative state
We can be conscious while in all forms.
