Meditation seems such a natural fit with secular spirituality. And what is "secular" spirituality? I describe it as the goodness of spirit that runs through us all; not dependent on a particular, or any religious belief.
Secular meditation can be practiced without interfering with one's belief system, as it is a way get in touch with those qualities beyond thoughts and thinking.
We say a human is composed of body, mind, spirit. In meditation all aspects are encompassed:
- The body sits still.
- The mind occupies itself with a sound or thought or prayer.
- And in the stillness of body and occupied mind, spirit begins to usher forth in enlivening feelings of joy.
Meditating regularly is like the result of practicing an instrument - the delight comes after time.
And what delight meditation can give. Goodness of spirit emerges, energizing body and mind, bringing forth creativity and the energy to follow through on inspiration.
