Meditation for Developing an Open Mind
We continuously create our reality by our choices, moment to moment, maintaining harmony by following our conscience and acting for the highest good. An open mind allows us to see many options.
The reward for continually upgrading our conscience, by keeping an open mind, is that we become more conscious of our harmonious, self-effulgent nature.
We are being courageous in living according to our conscience when it would be easy to hide from others what we are doing. It is easier to slide down the hill of life, maintaining or digressing in our current state of consciousness, than to follow the hard climb up the path of what we know is right.
Choose a quiet place to sit and begin even and regular breathing such as 2 counts to breathe in and 2 counts to breathe out. Keep up this even rhythm throughout your meditation without actually doing the counting.
After reflection write out any new insights in your journal for contemplation at a later time and for future review.
Before finishing your meditation say a prayer of appreciation for the people in your life and extend those thoughts to your community and the world. As we learn more about the universe we see we are all cogs in the wheel of a fantastic creation, stretching out almost endlessly.
