Meditation will be our topic this morning. Our purpose will be to show you that you can do this as well as anyone else can.
Simplify, please, your perceptions of what meditation is. You have
read and heard descriptions of meditational experiences told by others.
They tell of things which amaze you, and because none of these things
seem to happen to you when you close your eyes, you believe that you
cannot meditate and you cease trying in disappointment.
Dear ones, you have lives to live. People, your children and
spouses, depend upon you. You have not spent a lifetime in developing
this skill, and do not have the time to do so. That is alright. It is
understood. If this does not fit, and you are an accomplished
meditator, we applaud you. But the overwhelming majority of you will
not be cave dwelling hermits nor lifelong meditators. So let us dispel
your misgivings and give you a chance to use this magnificent tool to
move yourselves forward from wherever you are.
And that phrase is key, my friends, wherever you are. It is
impossible to begin a journey from anywhere else than wherever you are.
So here is a new goal we propose you adopt. “I will meditate each
day.” It is very simple. It is where to start.
You will learn more, just as you have in every other area of your
life. You may indeed find yourself at some time having those marvelous
visions and experiences. That this may happen is not important. What
is important is for you to find, in your hearts, peace and freedom to
know yourselves for who you truly are. And of those two things, we
emphasize peace. It is very hard to achieve that in your world. And
when you are able to feel that, you do, in fact, share it with all
others, whether you know it or whether you do not.
Now, since you are reading or listening to this message on an
electronic device of some sort, we tell you that it is perfectly fine
for you to use the thousands and thousands of meditational sound tracks
and videos to guide and help you in this process. Your mission, should
you choose to accept it, is to spend time each day with you and only
you. We add a little humor to lighten this up. It should be light. We
are offering you a release and a relief, not a new chore. You should
feel, “Ah, now I can meditate for a bit.”, not “Now I have to meditate.”
Peace and self-discovery, make those the only considerations and you
will have done wonders for yourselves. Make this first step and we
promise you that in very short order you will miss it on the days when
you need to skip it. And, by the way, do not beat yourselves up over
Love yourselves as we love you and we will speak again soon. Good day.
