Beginning to Meditate ?
Lesson 6 - "Signposts"
Along the Way
Supreme Soul is the
ultimate goal in merging with soul, the realization of the Self in its
totality. How does one know that one has experienced such an experience if
you cannot speak of it, if it is beyond the mind, thought, cause, time and
space? And yet one does know and vibrantly knows. There are various
signposts. One is that one could go into Supreme Soul as ignorant person
and come out wise. Another, the urgency, the goal, the quest is over. He
loses something--the desire for Self Realization. Another signpost is that
the Self, the very core of existence, is always his point of reference. He
relates to the exterior world only as an adult relates to the children's
toys. Supreme Soul is to be sought for, worked for and finally attained.
But a lot of work must be done first.
Choose a time for your
meditation. Sit up so straight and strong and dynamic that you feel you
are at that very moment the center of the universe. Regulate your breath
so precisely that awareness flows freely out of the realm of thought into
the perceptive areas of the mind. Then begin meditating on the two forces,
odic and actinic. Be like the spaceman high above the surface of the Earth
looking at the odic forces of the cities. Look then, too, at the odic
forces, the magnetic forces that motivate your life within yourself and
between people and you and things. Feel the actinic force flooding out
from the central source of energy itself. And then turn awareness in upon
itself. Simply be aware of being aware. Sit in dynamic bliss.
And while coming out of
this meditation, feel the power of the spine, vibrant energy flooding out
through the nerve system, the hands, the arms, the legs, the head. Enter
back into life joyfully, joyously.
