Communion with All - Meditation

Caring and sharing my time and energy gives me joy - not later, but right in the process. I feel in communion with all.

When I think about caring for people I empathize with them in those moments. I feel as they are feeling and act for them as I would act for myself - at those times I don't feel separate from them at all.

As an example, think about something you want - then imagine yourself inside that object - the desire is then fulfilled. You and the object are one, in communion.

Since the Divine, (or other name you use), is within everything and everyone, perhaps I'm feeling joy, because I'm aligning in my small way as God does with all.

Here is a meditation practice to feel the joy of communion

Pick a quiet spot where you will be undisturbed and sit up straight on your cushion or chair. If you are facing your meditation table light a candle to remind yourself that the flame is an energy that feels warm while giving light.

Fold your hands in your lap or rest them palms up or palms down on your thighs. Close your eyes.

Begin even and regular breathing in a pattern such as counts 1, 2 breathe in; counts 3, 4 breathe out; counts 1, 2 breathe in and continue on feeling your body relax while your mind stays alert. After a minute, continue the breathing pattern, but stop the conscious counting.

Turn your thoughts to a situation in your life where you have been able to help out someone in real need. How did you feel while helping out? Did your problems seem to melt away for the time being?

Were you concentrating on the task at hand and "being there" for someone? Did you feel increased energy to get done what was needed to help in the moment? Did you feel a spark of joy, a communion with the situation and those around you?

If you answer yes to these questions you can again feel this joy and communion - where your own wants and desires slip away for the time being - by helping out our world family, one-to-one, in little acts of caring all during the day.

Finish your meditation by taking a deep breath, stretching out, and going on with the knowledge that the experiences of joy - communion - are open for you whenever you think kind and caring thoughts, and follow through with helpful actions.
