Meditation Self Realization?
Maybe you are wondering if the time you spend in meditation will lead to, or open the door to self realization. It is a good question, because it is so important in our journey on earth to make the time to achieve our full human potential.
Meditation clears debris from our thinking; takes us from self-centeredness to self-giving. And, it is when our heart is expanding that we grow into our full human nature which is really part of our divine nature.
Meditation is an inner journey that has an outer result. We learn more about our expansive nature while meditating and the possibilities to create good, by refining our mind and doing kind works in the world.
When we are fully whole in a caring, kind sense we are realizing our self, our transcendent nature, our godly nature. We could say we are self realized in those moments.
Meditation does even more beyond self realization, though. After sitting still in the quiet and keeping appreciation in our mind repeatedly, we begin to feel uplifted into a more elevated state.
Then our battery is recharged, our body is enlivened by the eternal, internal energy flowing through us that meditation generates.
We are feeling a taste of what the Divine may feel in loving all of us so fully, that we have been given the natural world for a lifetime of use in order to grow and become divinely inspired beings.
Meditation when done with sincerity can lead to self realization. It is a blessing that is our eternal reward to enjoy. And, we can achieve this fulfillment through sincerity of intention, loving thoughts, a quiet time in mind, combined with good and kind actions in the world.
Stick with your goal of self realization through meditation, and then when the special moment comes that God enters your life and fills you with bliss, youll know that God Realization, the uppermost goal has dawned.
Come to me in heart and soul
Fill me with your love
Keep me safe and ever close
From your throne in heaven above.
