Question 127:About meditation

Question 127: Why is meditation important in the Gospel of Oneness?

Our five senses keep us enthralled by all the dualistic experiences in this world. There is so much to see, to taste, to hear, to touch, to smell in this world that these sense experiences keep us busy in living outer directed lives.

We also have the sense of intuition that goes beyond what our five senses can detect. It is this sense that can connect us to transcendental experiences, including the amazing experience of Oneness with all that is.

We don’t have to be in a meditation mode to experience oneness, but if we set aside some quiet time every day, even for 15 minutes, we can quiet the sense telephones and get in touch with something beyond the outer shows of this world.

Many methods and teachers of meditation are available. Yes, some teachers have ulterior motives, and some have methods that may not work for you, but that doesn’t mean meditation is not a highly beneficial practice.

The simplest method of meditation is to stretch and exercise gently before sitting down in a comfortable posture with your spine as straight as possible. Then follow your breath as it goes in and out. Your breathing will slow down and so will your heart rate. Your eyes can be closed or half open with your gaze directed slightly upward. Focus on love and gratitude, and let your body relax. The more you do this the easier it will become. If it becomes a habit so much the better.

Of course if you already are or want to be a deep practitioner of meditation, then it would be a good idea to find a highly qualified teacher who can guide you when you have difficulties. Maybe you have such a teacher who has overcome his or her ego and can guide you wisely. If so, I’m sure you are very grateful.

To summarize, if you look at the state of the world in this year (2017) how many people do you see in politics and religion who are lost in duality? How many do you see talking about this gospel of oneness? So engaging in meditation is very important in order to help this world.

through meditation, the Higher Self is experienced. – Bhagavad Gita
