Sacredness of Being--Meditation
The breathe is a sacred connection to living in our bodies. Without breathe we die. Rene Decartes, the philosopher said, "I think therefore I am." He concluded when we question our existence, this requires thinking and thus, thinking proves our existence. We are our thoughts. DeCartes is known for being a philosopher but his foundation was mathematics and science. Through mathematics he was able to develop innovations in the subject of philosophy. As we know not all math is linear and follows in a straight line. My understanding is that advance math requires intuition and hunches. Intuition receives new ideas, and thoughts gives the ideas a foundation to build. In recent times, science recognizes the fluidity of our thoughts, and the neo-plasticity of our brains. Brains do many tasks including helping the reasoning logical thoughts and the intuitive inspirations interconnect for successful communicative interactions.. We need both sides of our brains to achieve the best solutions.
Mindfulness Mediation teaches us that our thoughts are not us. This makes sense to me because based on my own observations in meditation thoughts have a lower vibration than our divine spirit. Thoughts only rest on our energetic bodies but are not the whole of us.
Yes, our behavior is an outward sign of our thoughts but to accept this is all of us, creates a limited belief of who and what we are as people. The mind does create our reality but it is maya, or an illusion, based on our limited thought patterns. Some of my generation sought to expand their mind through LSD, and other hallucinative drugs. They wanted to do more than think about life, they wanted to connect with the vibration of the expansion of the universe. Some felt they succeeded in this and others did not. From my observations of infants I believe we are born with the expansive understanding of the universe. We know the essence of our spirit. We know the connective love of unity. It is in our memory files.
Below is a simple meditation. Please do and comment below. I am interested in your thoughts and experiences.
Meditation-- Breathe and listen to your breath, now think the word LOVE. Your breath is a reminder of a human existence. The word love is a reminder of our divine connection. .
Yes, this is a being of oneness and sacred awareness, a joyous living though meditation. Meditate for 2-30 minutes. Our divine connection is smiling with love.
Often my focus has been on Divine Feminine for both men and women. Today the mediation focus is about Divine Masculine. Divine Masculine is found in all of us. Divine Masculine is the helper for all of us to stay focused on our own inner truths and our sacred path. This meditation is about connecting ourselves to our action steps.
1. Drink some water.
2. If possible go outside and sit on the ground. If not possible sit in a comfortable chair with your feet flat on the ground.Be gentle with yourself! have a piece of paper and pen if you are so inclined.
3. Focus on the words Divine Masculine. I am not going to suggest what this might bring to your conscious mind. Rather, I encourage you to notice what these words are opening in your being.
4. If you feel your divine masculine wants you to share, please do.
What is feeling meditation? It is the idea that we connect with our feelings as part of our meditation practice. This type of meditation is very good for all people, yes even people that block their emotions from personal awareness. How do you do this? Ideally, sit outside under a tree or near water. Inside the home works too.
Sit with the idea of listening to your breathe, now bring your breathe to the core of your body and now slowly exhale. After a few minute passes, check in with your body, what emotion or emotions want your focus? Sometimes, they are contradictory. I am feeling joy and sadness at the same time. It is all part of the process, keep feeling and keep breathing. Remember emotions are not bottomless pit, they are a spring well of emotions. It would be so helpful to share your experience with this exercise. Life is a co-creative connection, right?
Sometimes when I have read about meditation the message is to detach from your feelings. What feelings, all feelings, or just the "bad" feelings? Whom has decided that feelings are not part of someone's meditation practice? Also, is it the intellectual feelings or is it the heart centered feelings. More later.
