Meditation My Way
7/1/2004 8:13:12 PM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

By Request!



I sit in a straight back comfortable chair



I go through relaxing my body from head to toe



If you don't know the method try: holding your arms

down towards floor, shaking your hands loosely...turning

your feet in circles in then out a few times, then

making circles with your head a few times finishing by letting your chin drop to your chest. Then start your breathing and mantra, until you've achieved silence.





When I've settled in a comfortable position



I begin my breathing and mantra



I inhale deeply through my nose to the count of 7



I hold my breath to the count of 7



then exhale it through my mouth to the count of ten

pushing it all the way out



I say my mantra while holding breath in between inhale and exhale



I repeat this process until I have achieved a meditative state having reached meditation I become silent



Sometimes I just remain silent until I feel a completeness



Other times I receive messages which I've shared in my poetry or articles



I have learned to silence the mind through practice. Starting with one minute, and working minutes incrementally, until I achieved my goal which is at least 15 minutes. I do mostly 15 to 20, but if rushed even 10

is good. It is something that must be desired just like anything you wish to do such as diet, learning a sport, hobbies etc. Keep your mantra simple so it flows and you don't stumble over it. try something like "My spirit is being renewed"



To make my mind a blank I began by picturing a blackboard.

Then with chalk I wrote some things on the board or drew some images. Then I'd erase them until the board was completely clean and black. This was my mind and I knew I couldn't put anything in it unless I picked up the chalk and put it on the board, but my hand was now relaxed and unable to so so. This is what I told my mind each time I began my session, until it became habit.



Meditation is a healing energy for your entire body, mind heart and soul! It should be done on a daily basis. Set the 10 or 15 minutes aside with the thought in mind that you are improving your life. You will be!



Through silence one tries to arrive at a

profound understanding of human existence.

In the Soto and Rinzai Zen sects there is

a focus to reach the place of silence within

ourselves.



Interestingly, they teach just as Jesus did

to leave everything behind even family

and go into yourself only. To the Buddist

Nirvana means emptiness.



In Soto and Rinzai Zen sects they teach:

"Kill your Buddha, kill your Patriarchs, kill your

parents - take away all of that, and you will begin

to liberate yourself." Of course it's a metaphor that

Christians call "dying to self" not actually killing

yourself. (for those who don't know the teaching.)



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~All is Silence~



I am the epitome of a bear in hiberbnation

As such I call on the substance of creation

Weightless, thoughtless, waiting to be filled

I know from experience to put away my will



The benefits of achieving silence if understood

Will always give results that are for the good

Silence happens when you are non-existent

Only afterwards do the fruits become evident



It takes much determination to shut all things out

To enter into this state and learn what it's about

It never is too easy for those who live a worldly life

Yet, it's worth every effort to get rid of all the strife



In time you will adapt to your surroundings of quietude

You'll come to love the peace with which you are imbued

The feeling of lightness when you have left yourself behind

Is like no other, achieving that which elevates the mind



etw~
