Meditation: The Means and the End

April 13, 2010


Like prayer, meditation enables you to communicate with God, but in a much deeper way. Meditation quiets the mind, calms the senses, opens the heart, and prepares you to receive divine consciousness.

Meditation is the art of suspending verbal and symbolic thinking for a time, somewhat as a courteous audience will stop talking when a concert is about to begin.
Alan Watts


Sitting to meditate is a physical expression of your (more…)

Is Our Reality God’s Picture Show?

In Vibrational Medicine, Dr. Richard Gerber describes all matter as “frozen light,” light which has been slowed down and become solid. This light, the light of divine consciousness, can be compared to the light emanating from a movie projector.


As moving pictures are sustained 
by a beam of light coming from the projection booth of a movie house,

Paramahansa Yogananda

The forms projected on the screen appear separate from one another; but try to grab an object from the screen and you discover that, just as all of creation is but a single divine thought, the lifelike reality on the screen is produced by a single beam of light.

Indeed, evidence suggests that these masters have walked the Earth and continue to do so to this day. Their lives serve as both proof and inspiration that all things are possible when you wholeheartedly give your life to God.

Uniting with divine consciousness necessitates the death of the ego; the notion that these selfless saints would flaunt their abilities is unthinkable. Holiness and humility walk hand in hand.

Eckhart Tolle made another important point on page 87 of his powerful book, The Power of Now:

Never personalize Christ. Don’t make Christ into a form identity. Avatars, divine mothers, enlightened masters, the very few that are real, are not special as persons. Without a false self to uphold, defend, and feed, they are (more…)
