With morning I arose to Cynthia’s heart song dance — uniquely different every time. I feel happy and alive today. Good. Secure. From this “Heart Song Dance” I realize movement is improvement. And sound and movement are good ways to change moods, physical structure of ones body…even ones emotional and mental state.
For instance, you now have some experience with how to meditate, even if you don’t feel like you’re very good at it yet. You may know the time of day that works best for you, and you may even have a favorite spot.
There are two disciplines, one mental and one physical. They have both been developed over a period of about 2500 years. One originated in India, the other in China. We have all encountered these disciplines but not many of us understand them. Our views are confused and hide their true nature. Our confusion arises from the presentation in the buddhist meditation baltimore media mainly in films. But we do know them, we just need to learn how to use and understand them correctly.
Eventually I came across a meditation teacher who encouraged me to believe in nothing, rather I was encouraged to find out for myself. He introduced me to other enlightened teachers and I was actively urged to ask as many questions as I liked. I was told that by using certain meditation techniques, that I would eventually discover Enlightenment. Not in the ‘next life’, but in this lifetime. So, I began following their advice, and in a short period of time I began to discover more about myself than I had discovered in the whole of my previous lifetime.
Outside of Huxley at night there could be a fire in the wood burning fireplace. A world renowned Schooner Operator could be playing classical guitar alone. While at the other end of the deck a couple of people are sipping tea or coffee. Others coming up from the baths refreshed and ready for sleep. Couple of raccoons vibrating calmly nearby as a mystical lady tells you to fear not. Their scent uniquely pungent still to my memory. Sounds of nature flourish. Sparks from the crackling fire fly up into the gentle breeze of the cool crisp evening toward the star filled universe surrounding us. Stratus clouds intermingle with silhouettes of tree branches.
The sub-conscious is incredibly powerful, and meditation is the doorway through which you can enter your sub-conscious and communicate with your sub-conscious.
There are no requirements, or rules. There is no wrong or right. You don’t even need to buy anything. You don’t need more than 15 minutes a day. It’s a gift that you can give yourself, and you don’t need anyone’s approval or credit card number. You can meditate anytime, anywhere, and any place.
