What would it feel like to be deeply connected to the source of this amazing universe?
The connection that I’m talking about is a tangible, visceral experience.
It’s accessible to each and every person on this planet.
Yes! You can actually experience it.
Notice the faces of the meditators. What’s happening here is an inner experience of quantum proportions.
You may have already read about the dynamic qualities of meditation or you’ve experienced it. Although these meditators look serene and quiet, something profound is happening inside.
The inner experience is not limited by physical laws of locality, time or space.
So when you enter within, you have the chance to encounter the more infinite, wisdom-filled and expanded aspects of you.
Why does this matter to you?
…because in meditation, your inner perception shifts and when that happens, you and the your world shift too.
And any inner changes and dreams you’ve hoped for can start to manifest.
What’s really going on when you meditate?
If the inner experience of meditation is so dynamic, then:
- Why then are these people sitting so still?
- What’s going on inside of them?
- How can they find the connection to the Source of meditation, to the quantum field which is alive with infinite possibility and empowering expansion?
The answer lies in what we’ve learned from a master of meditation, Patanjali. He lived in India many centuries ago and today he is considered the father of Yoga (which means “union”, which certainly implies connection, right?):
“Yoga is the stilling of the thought waves of the mind.”
The Great Sage, Patanjali
How can you do this?
When you take even a minute or two and focus your attention on your breath, the thought waves can slow down.
Keep in mind that the the energy of your breath animates your being. Your life force is being carried in your breath through your whole body.
Focus on the breath, the energy of it, its natural movement and the sound that it makes as it comes in and out.
As you focus your mind on your breath, notice any shifts in your body, mind or emotions.
Try it right now for a few breaths and notice the effects.
As you allow the mind to slow down, you are creating a cascade effect of physiological, mental and emotional responses.
Focusing the mind is the secret to connection to your source of true wisdom, inner strength and genuine happiness.
When can this happen for you?
It’s extraordinary that you have at your disposal, always present, a tool to rejuvenate and connect to the source of your life, of your world.
It’s like knowing that whenever you are thirsty, there’s a pristine, nourishing spring-fed well available for you to drink from.
When you feel connected to the universe and to all living things, how does that shift your inner perception? What are the actions and choices that you naturally want to bring into your daily life?
I’d love to hear your answer in the comments below.
You may already meditate…no matter if this is your first exposure to meditation, if you did the exercise of focusing on the breath, you just meditated too.
Share how your experience of stilling the mind and connecting to the universe (and all living things) impacts your life and the world around you.
