Make Way for the Lord through Meditation
Meditation opens the inner doorway that lets us enter into the supreme realms of bliss and joy, it makes way for us to be with the Lord.
Breath plays an important role in meditation. With regular even breathing the body and mind become calm. Breath is the secret to harmonizing us body, mind, emotion.
For example, if we feel any of the negative emotions such as jealousy, greed, anger, we can temper them out with a round of even breathing: such as, breathe in counts 1, 2; breathe out counts 3, 4; breathe in counts 1, 2, and continue this pattern for a full minute, or until feeling calm and centered.
And when worn out physically or out of breath, gradually bring ragged breathing back to normal by consciously beginning the even regular pattern just described.
Just a side note: I find it interesting that we can't see the air we breathe but it is so necessary to life. I'd like to also say that is how I feel about spiritual energy: we can't see yet the goodness that exudes from spiritual kindness uplifts wherever it lands.
The Lord in great kindness lets us in to the inner chambers of our soul and the heavenly realms when we prepare ourselves in the stillness of meditation combined with a positive outlook and our thoughts of appreciation.
We make way for the Lord and enjoy the flowing spiritual blessings in deep meditation that then rushes outward through our positive and helpful actions in our life.
Every time we lend a helping hand we are extending the hand of our Lord to the needy. When we look into the face of neediness and give of ourselves we are living a life of joy in spirit.
Giving where there is need balances out the flowing waters of humanity. It calms the destructive crashing waves of poverty, helplessness and restores order to our human family, bit by bit, as each of us act on the energized prodding of spirit.
Grow in the limitless of spirit into the presence of the Lord
Make way for the Lord through acts of kindness and charity
Help restore harmony to humanity
Through loving kindness
Enjoy the blessings of feeling one with the ever-present Lord.
