15010Meditation is Universal
- Jul 29, 2006Hello All,
I was meditating yesterday and had yet another
experience, afterwords I was inspired to write this.
It occurred to me how naturally universal Meditation
is, in particular, the experience. It was seen in
cultures worldwide. It is seen in almost every major
religion including the Roman Catholic Church and
Universally it is seen as a way to get closer to
God, reguardless of what you believe God is. The
experiences are the same. Meditation and it's
effects, is one of the few universal experiences.
When you eat fish, what you taste is different from
what your neighbor tastes. When you see a cloud, you
may see a different image from that of your son. When
you hear a song, you may consider it unnerving while
your teacher finds it relaxing. When you smell a
perfume you may find it beautiful while your boss may
hate it. When you wear a sweater it may feel itchy to
you and warm to your partner. Every singal sense we
have is subjective to the individual.
It is also difficult to find the Universality in
experiences. You may enjoy rollercoasters while
others are terrified. Some enjoy basketball while
others find it rough. The same goes for professions
as we each have our individual purposes.
Meditation may be one of the few Universals. For
the experienced, the experience of Meditation is
almost always the same. This is not true for almost
any other experience a person can have.
Being it is so Universal, and considered
spiritual Meditation can help us in a time of
conflict. Conflict in the world is escalating on
personal and global scales. It is a shame, but a
major part of this conflict is religion. 1 of the few
things all can agree on is this meditation experience.
I ask you, can this not be used? We have all
found that meditation can be a tool for us, a way to
help us controll our minds. It is a tool for good.
Should religions around recognize this... all would
have 1 thing to agree on. In fact, almost all already
agree on this but do not realize it. Do agreements
I ask you, if you were to go to respective
churches to ask these questions... what is the good
that could be accomplished. If it were to spread
through religions... how much good would it do on a
personal and global level? This is the power of the
trade we have learned or are learning. Treat it with
the respect of an atomic bomb... for like an atomic
bomb it's effects could spread through the world.
