Diving Deeply Into Meditation
Meditation is a process of getting closer and closer to our Source, regardless of the religion we practice, or with no religious beliefs.
The more we meditate, the deeper we sink toward our roots that go inward, and radiate further than the physical and mental realms into the unseen spiritual.
It takes time to adjust to sitting in meditation. Our body may just be used to being still when we are sleeping. And now we are asking it to remain still while our mind is fully consciously aware and awake to all around.
It is a phenomena in deep meditation that we may hear what goes on around, such as a plane flying overhead, but we donít move or flinch. Iíve found after many years of meditating that my body rests fully very quickly when I sit to meditate.
Completing a meditation is like getting up from a nap, except the mind is fully awake during meditation, and in the physical quietude may have come up with some resolves to outer problems, or creative ideas to put into form.
Deep meditation is a gift you enjoy and that keeps giving back through the expansion of your mindís abilities to surf successfully in the world.
Time spent quietly in meditation may relax you enough to realize that you really do know how to resolve a problem. While running around ruminating on it you were covering the space in your mind that had the solution all along.
When you first begin meditation practice, resolve to sit still for one minute. Add a minute to each of your following sessions till youíve reached ten minutes or more. You may find that you relish this time of peace and quiet, overwhelmed in the joy that seeps into your consciousness from your internal roots in spirit.
Physical roots are dense bundles to hold the plants upright, but the unseen roots of spirit are strong and radiant lines of bliss. Meditation leads us along these lifelines of nourishment to our eternal Source in Spirit.
