Meditation Tips for the Day: Day 3

Posted: Updated:

There's a saying that the eyes are the window to the soul. When you speak with someone, you actually speak to the soul. Inside of every soul are experiences of past, present, and even the future. Have you ever spoken with someone, and in looking into their eyes you were actually trying to understand at a deeper level what they really mean or are trying to convey to you? It is a story that is emerging from behind their eyes. This has happened many times for me. Where I catch myself more tuning into the "vibe" rather than the words.

So, when we choose to meditate, it is the energy, the soul, the light that is behind the eyes that chooses to meditate. Meditation is not just emptying the mind, it is letting go of wasteful and negative thoughts. For example, I am going to share with you the thought that once again, "I am a pure and peaceful soul." Now, ask yourself, do you believe it? Do you want to believe it? Do you accept it? If you allow your mind to practice to remember this as your real reality, then eventually you will wake up one day and you will always be in the awareness that "I am pure and I am peaceful." Remember, this series of meditation will emphasize on awareness and the simplest form of thought so that a natural experience can emerge. Om shanti.
