"He who is persistent will realize God. So try your best to make meditation a regular experience in your life."
Meditation is a practice of becoming still (mentally, physically and emotionally). When we do this we turn within to discover an inner world that is vast and real.
Meditation allows us to slow down our habitual thinking so we can begin to see patterns of creation. More importantly, it allows us to tap into the brilliance of God/Life within us. Right within us is so much inspiration, intuition, power and presence, but we must go within to build a relationship with it. This is scary for many because the first thing they will see is how messed up their thinking is, and how crazy their monkey mind is. That's when most people retreat and run for cover. That's just the initial entry and it calms down pretty quickly if you stay with it, relax, and enjoy the moments of silence.
Meditation cannot be mastered quickly. It is a practice that calls us to years of work. Like going to the gym consistently and seeing results in a few months, this is also true for meditation. You will experience more energy, peace, freedom of thought and clarity. It is said that for as vast as the outside, physical world and cosmos is . . . the inner world is even greater. We think this is pretty cool!
