A Nature Meditation

Written by Robert Elias Najemy

Continued from page 1

If we do not become enamored byrepparttar sensation of light, byrepparttar 131357 bliss of this energy which charges through our system, then we may sink a little deeper intorepparttar 131358 vast nothingness from whichrepparttar 131359 spring of life flows.

Here there is not even energy; no body, no mind, no light, no sound - absolute nothingness - total vacuum - only tremendous potential unmanifest Divine Consciousness, from which all life and material creation flows.


The sound of chirping birds greets you as you slowly float torepparttar 131360 surface. The branches dancing inrepparttar 131361 wind wave «hello». The sounds of insects buzzing and water splashing salute you with a «welcome back friend, you are part of us now».

It takes a while to remember where you are. You were only gone 20 minutes, but it seems you have been in this spot all your life. The mind is clear, refreshed and inrepparttar 131362 present.

There is nothing to do but take off your clothes and go swimming.

Have you ever been to this quiet stream inrepparttar 131363 countryside?

Most everyone has - either to a stream, river, mountain, sea, or forest. And how well and rejuvenated we feel when we return. Somehow everything is more alive, more harmonious.

It may not take long, however, to discharge all that energy and clarity. Once again we become upset, nervous and bored.

Can we go torepparttar 131364 stream every day? It certainly would be nice, and life would be much less complicated. Of course for most of us it is completely impractical in terms of time, money and availability of such places - especially to those of us who live inrepparttar 131365 city.

Well, Mother Nature has a secret for us. We don?t have to go anywhere at all. The stream of life, that place of peace and source of strength, knowledge and harmony - lies right inside every one of us.

What is meditation? It is nothing more than visiting this stream on a daily basis. Simply it isrepparttar 131366 sinking dance into our sea of consciousness, releasingrepparttar 131367 submerged stresses and coming torepparttar 131368 point of inner stillness where there is no object of consciousness - but consciousness itself.

Done regularly, this inward dance leaves us fresh, more alert, relaxed, creative, healthy, and more in tune with ourselves and our environment.

The truth of these statements has been proved both subjectively and objectively through experimentation. Studies have been made on meditators and non-meditators overrepparttar 131369 years with respect to blood pressure, pulse and reaction time as well as with states of fulfillment and creativity expressed subjectively byrepparttar 131370 participants.

Hundreds of thousands of people today in all walks of life are finding that no matter what their goals, motivations, responsibilities or problems may be, they are able to act more clearly, more efficiently and more successfully withrepparttar 131371 aid of regular meditation.

Ultimately,repparttar 131372 only way to know if meditation will be useful for you is to give it a try. To spend some time each day inrepparttar 131373 «dance ofrepparttar 131374 soul».

5. Employrepparttar power of positive quitting.

Most of us view quitting as something negative, but it's not. 'Winners never quit,' we're told, when, in reality, winners quit allrepparttar 131355 time: choosing to stop doing things that aren't creatingrepparttar 131356 results they desire.

When you quit allrepparttar 131357 things that aren't working for you... When you quit tolerating allrepparttar 131358 negative things that hold you back... You'll create a positive 'charge' in your life as well as well creatingrepparttar 131359 space in your life for more positive experiences.

6. Charge into your future! As you recreate this positive force in your life, take big, massive leaps into your future. Be imaginative, bold, and brave! The results may surprise you.

7. Use everything.

You are blessed with a particular set of skills and talents that NO ONE else has. Use every skill and talent to live your life as joyfully and abundantly as possible. Leave this life as Erma Bombeck wished to: 'When I stand before God atrepparttar 131360 end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, 'I used everything you gave me.''
