The society that we live in today does not teach us enough about how to understand ourselves from within. Because of this, most people do not understand who they truly are, which are spiritual beings. Instead, they believe that their bodies are their true identities. By believing that they are physical beings, they lose touch with the loving energy (soul) within them and the loving Source that focused them into existence. This causes confusion and traps them in the illusion (the physical reality) that was designed to help them spiritually evolve. In other words, their spirits are nearly asleep and they are only awake at the physical level.
Meditation helps calm the mind
To understand who we are and why we are here, we need to reduce the distraction of illusions that are created by our conscious minds. This is where meditation becomes very important because it helps reduce distractions, bringing our bodies and minds to a finer state of equilibrium. At this level, disturbance is very minimal and our consciousness is in a state of bliss, spaceless and timeless. It is a state that is similar to the consciousness state of the Creator.
This state can be referred to as pure potentiality, creativity, eternity, fulfillment, peace, joy, happiness, bliss and infinite possibilities. If we can perfect this technique and transcend to a higher level of consciousness, we will increase the power of creation within us. All we have to do is use the power of imagination and thought, and we can create our own reality. Since we are nowhere near this level, it is impossible for us to fully use this pure potential energy of creation, but that does not mean that we should not try.
Meditation can help you achieve a higher state of consciousness
Perfecting meditation takes time, commitment and patience, but learning this technique can help you achieve a higher level of consciousness. Meditation can also help you find your true purpose in life because it strengthens the connection between your body and soul. Your soul is a fragment of the One Infinite Creator and is a reflection of every other soul. Even though each soul is united through the consciousness of the Creator, it is unique from every other soul because of free will and self-awareness. This is why you have your own unique personalities. Your soul also holds the knowledge and wisdom from your past lives. By strengthening the connection between your body and soul, it will be easier for you to access your past knowledge.
Meditation is one of the cheapest and most effective ways to heal your body. It is effective because it reduces stress and heals the body at the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. Certain scientists found out that when people meditate, their health improves due to increased telomerase activity.
Below is a paragraph extracted from my book Staradigm about meditation.
Meditation helps you control your feelings and reduces distractions, making it easier to find inner peace. Most of us are not happy because we become too attached to external things, such as money and other necessities. When we do not have these necessities, our moods become unstable and we become depressed. Meditation helps to free you from these attachments by gradually allowing you to reach a state of mental equilibrium. In this state of balance, you will be able to control your feelings regardless of the circumstances. You will be able to feel Creation’s love within you and this love will allow you to feel the connection to all things. The love of Creation is beyond what you can comprehend in your current state of evolution. It is a state of balance, harmony, joy and ecstasy that no words can describe.
Meditation is one of the best ways to help you find true happiness and love. Many people live their lives trying to find true happiness and love, but instead they will end up finding pain and sorrow. The main reasons for this are because they are searching in the wrong places and they lack the understanding of love. You cannot find true happiness and love from external things until you first find it inside yourself.
The happiness and love within you is real, infinite and unconditional. The happiness and love you find from external things are usually temporary. Once you reconnect yourself to this infinite source of loving energy, all the answers to many of your personal questions will start to surface. Once this happens, you can start relying more on external things to help fulfill your emotions and needs; just be smart about it.
