What is meditation?
Each individual meditation is a new journey or pilgrimage.
Such journeys have been tested & signposted by mystics from all spiritual traditions & spiritual teachers throughout time.
Where does the journey take me?
Meditation is an activity that allows me to experience my inner world.
There is a very big difference between my outer world & my inner world !
One is the ‘grasping’ (Lord Buddha) world of the 5 senses, the egoic defences & the personality - all of which create suffering.
The inner world (also known as heaven) is the place of stillness, peace, bliss, knowing & a place that feels like a real home.Meditation allows me to turn within, it turns the volume down on my personality & allows me to feel the fine & subtle energy of the essence.
Master Choa Kok Sui, founder of Pranic Healing & author of over 19 books on the subject, provides a map for the journey.He provides a map & a list of 5 requirements or foundations for a spiritual journey.
This map & list of requirements allows the traveller to be safe, grounded & steady & to be both spiritual & practical!
These requirements are:
1. Respect for the Divine
2. Techniques for physical purification & inner purification
3. Meditation techniques to ensure a balanced growth
4. A recommended list of books to study
5. Service & tithing
Meditation creates an inner charge (yin energy) & this needs to be balanced & expressed as service & tithing (yang energy).
