Re: [Meditation Society of America] From E mail - Help Needed
- Meditation takes practice.But when a memory arises, try just identifying it.... "This is a memory"... and let it go. Memories and thoughts arise all the time. Try not to let them take over your thinking.TS
- Meditation can, and has for many
people, taken the "sting" our of bad
memories. The mind will not let
us entirely forget bad memories,
but the meditative state enables
us to quiet the internal chatter
that keeps recalling the bad
As we experience the calm, restful
state of meditation, we begin to
accept the memories, and spend
less time "wrestling with reality".
If the bad memories involve guilt
or shame or your part, then you
might find a spiritual model that
will take you to deep meditation.
The experience of deep meditation
can bring "forgiveness" and a sense
of restoration to wholeness. Then
the bad memories are seen as
truly in the past, and not a part of
who we are in the "now". And life
will once again seem worthwhile
and become an enjoyable gift
- even blissful.
