What is meditation? It sounds complicated or mysterious but it is very simple. Sit quietly and think about nothing. Much like when our mouths stop moving, the mind starts working, and when the mind is silenced, we can connect with source energy.
An infinite ocean
Stretching to eternity
And no end
Waves ripple up
Surrounded by others
They are individuals
But inseparable from the whole
It's hard to imagine
That one wave
Could hate another
But sometimes they do
Until they return
To their source
And they remember
Who they are
With each other
No matter what happens, everything is perfect. I'm surrounded by overwhelming love and everything I ever wanted. As I feed my baby girl, she grasps my fingers and our eyes lock. I see her now and I've seen the distant future. The eyes I looked into 40 years from now are the same ones that sparkle back at me today. They are entangled with her smile and nose and cheeks. Together, they melt my heart and show me the love of spirit that created us all.
When my baby boy runs up to me and grabs my legs and looks up at me and smiles from a place of pure joy, I know that all is right in my world. Any wrongs of the day dissolve, unable to withstand the power of his love for me, my love for him, and our love of life itself.
I believe it when they say only love is real. None of us can live here forever but our consciousness cannot dissolve. When we leave here we leave all things behind except love. We will not take our possessions, nor will we take our hatred or grievances. Instead the memory of our true selves returns in a flood, washing away our earthly duality. We will once again know we are all connected as a part of the infinite whole.
When someone does something that seems to make you feel bad, the feeling isn't caused by their actions. The bad feeling is the difference between you and your higher self. The higher self sees the bigger picture and understands why the other person behaved that way.
Are you comfortable saying this? "Things are always working out for me." If not, then start thinking that sentence every time something DOES work out for you. Start with simple things like green traffic lights, good parking spots, or coins found on the ground. The more you think it and believe it, the more it will become reality for you.
What you say AND think can affect your health. Are you one of those people who say, "With all these big temperature changes outside, we're all going to get sick!" It isn't the weather that makes you sick, but rather your beliefs.
The next time you notice you are really happy with your life right now, take a moment to think about this statement: All the "bad" things that have happened in your life had to happen for you the reach this moment. So don't be so upset about the bad things now because you will need them later.
