Meditation - A Process Of Cleansing, Dialogue And Joining (Part 2) 

Meditation can be defined as a process of cleansing, a process of dialogue and a process of joining. Today we take up:

Dialogue
 

In Greek, the word meditation is translated as dialogismos, from which comes the English word dialogue. Meditation is a dialogue with oneself, with the true self; a very necessary process for developing self-knowledge and accumulating inner strength. 

The basis of spiritual dialogue with oneself is introspection. Introspection is the ability to examine and change oneself, as one wants to or should do. Without a consistent re-evaluation of our attitudes and thought models, negative habits easily dominate our consciousness. A healthy dialogue with our inner selves means that we interact positively with others, without being trapped or lost in ourselves. Introspection involves being an observer: observing and not reacting to situations or people with negative emotions such as anger, hate, fear, resentment and jealousy. Being detached observers helps us conserve our inner energy and keeps us spiritually, mentally and emotionally healthy.

Message for the day

To be free from the burden of responsibility is to fulfill the responsibility well. 

Expression: When I am responsile for something or people expect me to be answerable for something, I tend to feel heavy because of these responsibilities. With the such a feeling of having a burden, I'm not able to fulfill my responsibilities to the best of my ability. 

Experience: Whatever responsibilities are given to me are according to my capabilities. When I remind myself of this I'll be able to be light and give my best to fulfill all my responsibilities.

Thought of the day 29/10/2014

See yourself as incapable and you won't know where to start.  
See yourself as awkward and you'll get nervous.  
How you see yourself is very important because it affects how you project yourself.  And as a result, it creates your reality.

So change how you choose to see yourself.  See yourself as confident and you tap into courage.  See yourself as capable and you'll make the best use of opportunities.

How do you choose to see yourself?

Meditation - A Process Of Cleansing, Dialogue And Joining (Part 1) 

Meditation can be defined as a process of cleansing, a process of dialogue and a process of joining. Today we take up:

Cleansing
 

Meditation is a useful method to help human beings redirect their life positively and healthily, and to achieve inner stability. The word meditation comes from the Latin word mederi, which means cure. Curing the inner self is not a matter of taking medicines, but it involves re-establishing the balance through knowing oneself, having the correct attitudes and making the correct use of mental and emotional energy. 

In meditation, we learn to observe our inner self and recover the resources that can cleanse (heal) and harmonize us: peace, love, truth, wisdom, purity and happiness. Through concentrated thought we learn to let these positive and pure energies manifest (show) themselves in our conscience and in our day-to-day actions. 

(To be continued tomorrow….) 

Message for the day

Trust comes when there is mutual respect. 

Expression: It is normally experienced that it is difficult to trust people around me. I do want to but the negative experiences do not let me do so. I add up to this negative experience with each incident that happens, which further breaks my trust for people. 

Experience: The only way to trust and gain people's trust is by having respect for them. Respect makes me look at the specialities in everyone and I am able to relate to these specialities. The more I look at the positive aspect in others, the more I am able to encourage others to use these specialities and relate to my own specialities too. This is the only way that trust comes.

Thought of the day 28/10/2014

There is a crown of light on those who are carefree. 
If you are worrying about anything you carry the baskets of burden on your head. 
Which do you prefer? Do you prefer the basket or the crown of light?
