“Meditation is not just a practice. Meditation is a natural state. It’s an actual channel in our consciousness, a bandwidth of tranquility, energy and joy that reveals itself when we learn to pay attention. Once you discover how to tune yourself to the meditation bandwidth, it will empower your life from within.” –Sally Kempton
It’s hard to fight an enemy who has outposts inside your head. – Sally Kempton
More on this as i research further but for now i would like to open your consideration to a possibility that God broadcasts to our minds every moment of every day on ‘The Meditation Bandwidth’ while each of us mostly receive and transmit on our own unique wavelength, Channel 7 say?
Do we just tune in to the bandwidth to grab the headlines? to get the whole editorial? or not at all, we just pretend we do to others? (and perhaps to ourselves?)
Can we fine tune our transmitting and receiving so that our frequency is 100% within the bandwidth 100% of the time (maintain a perfect meditative state on the God bandwidth)?
How much of our time would we require to develop such a level of perfect harmony with God’s Mind/Will?
Is it necessary that we do? Or is it OK if we spend most of our mind time solely within our own ‘channel’ providing we don’t do ‘nasty’ things to others?
What, if any, is a satisfactory mix of ‘us’/Him in terms of our mind’s frequency ‘tuning in’, that we are prepared to dedicate ourselves to fully working to achieve??
Do we, in our need to care for our family’s/self ever, or most often, consciously choose to place such activities ‘above’ that which we choose to ‘give over in ourselves’ to Him and His daily broadcast?
Should we learn how to be in a constant meditative state of prayer so that He is Always our first thought/priority??
(I believe He Did!)
While many may feel that prayer is their ‘contact’ with God (and indeed for some it can be) I believe it would be extremely impractical for most of us to stay in ‘prayer mode’ all day, every day. I do see a difference between what most of us think of as prayer and meditative prayer or a meditative state – a meditative state can be maintained while we engage in any and all activities – but only by those who have dedicated themselves to the ‘perfecction’ of achieving and understanding this fully.
( No – I do not claim to be one who has done so! However, I should like to reach such a stage one day.)
