Meditation for success: Let’s meditate together

I have already talked about meditation package. I will be posting many meditation routines over the next several weeks. You can pick the ones that you like and try it out. As mentioned before, meditation practices should reflect in your real life. There must be palpable change in how you live. If there is no change or effect then you ought to change your meditation routine. But, please give it a fair chance.

Are you ready?

Patanjali starts his book by saying, “Now, the discipline of yoga.” He presumes that you are ready before you indulge in Patanjali yoga sutra. Any one cannot express it any better. You ought to be ready for meditation before you go further into meditation. Your mind must be ready. “Why should I meditate” is not a question any more. You must have some basic concepts about meditation so that you can proceed with confidence. It will be good if you have practiced thought management exercises which include dropping and parking of thoughts They will help you get further and deeper in meditation.

Place of meditation

Any place for meditation is better that no place. It is always better to have a designated place for meditation. It is even better if the place is away from living room, bedroom, kitchen etc. The vibrations matter in meditation. However, I commonly practice meditation sitting in a chair when flying. It is a great time to spend time with you. It also gives the elevation (height) which was only possible at one time by going high up in the Himalayas in olden days. Gravity pulls downwards; Grace is a force that moves upwards.

It is also desirable to have a non-conducting surface to sit on.

Time

Any time for meditation is better than no time  It is desirable to do meditation at same time and at same place if at all possible. Soon it becomes possible that the time and place waits for you. Things fall into place easily when you arrive ath the place and at that particular place. Meditation becomes easier to happen.

 

The optimum time is dawn or dusk. Life in nature is transitioning and you can be part of the change. The nature around you is waking up at dawn; birds are chirping, sun is rising in the east and grass is feeling fresher. You become connected to your surrounding. This rising and changing energy becomes available to you.

Posture:

There are different positions for different meditations. A sufi will dance for meditation and a Zen monk will instruct you to look at a wall. However, I describe here a common energy saving posture that can be used for most meditations.

Sitting with feet close together, straight back and straight neck. You can take help of back support or support against a wall. Hands should be placed on each other with thumb joining together at the tip. I prefer to gently close the eyes; some like to keep it half open (just be able to see tip of the nose). Effect of gravity is least in this comfortable position when back and neck is straight. Have a comfortable cushion to sit on if possible so that you can be comfortable for an hour so and not be bothered by pressure changes to your nerves leading to numbness or tingling.

However, meditation can be done sitting on a chair especially if sitting with feet together is difficult or impractical. You can close your eyes and be away in office or airplane seat while you have some time for yourself.  

 

Group:

 

Meditation in a group has a unique effect. It is as if many forces are trying to move upwards in one direction. Every one is practicing individually. Each person is alone. Yet, there is inter-connectedness between each person meditating together.

Not much is known about meditating together in a social network setting. I have a feeling that inter-connectedness can be developed between meditating persons situated in different locations. That is one reason, I say, “Let us meditate together.”


It is your journey

 

Meditation is an adventure. It is a journey to nowhere, yet you pass through many unknown and strange experiences. I always remember, invite and pray to God, entity or energy to be with me when I get into this journey. “Be with me and guide me” is what I say. You can do what suits you.

I would like you to read the disclaimer @ before you embark on any of the techniques described here. It is your decision to proceed.

 


Sankalp

Sankalp means “I resolve to” or I promise to. You determine for yourself what you are going to do and see that it is completed. It is a means to get things done (GTD). You say to yourself, “I will meditate today for half an hour.” Then you meditate for half an hour. Mind does not say, “it has been 25 minutes, let us stop today. I will do 35 minutes tomorrow.”

I invite you all to take a sankalp, “I will meditate every day at xxx time and xxx place for the month of December.” You can find an excuse to do so. December is a month of Gita Jayanti and we shall make December as Gita Jayanti month. December is also a month of Christmas. Energy of Jesus is available in December. What can be a better month.


What to expect

This is a difficult one. No one wants to raise your expectations too high.. Yet I would like to say to you, “Do not sell yourself too cheap and do not set your expectations too low.” Your time is valuable. You are going to carve out half an hour to one-hour daily of this valuable time. Stress relief and reduced tension is not enough value out of this time and should not be the ultimate goal. This would happen because if is a bye product of meditation. You will be more peaceful. That is a given. If it does not happen, change your meditation or go and do something else.

Let us strive to get much more out of the time spent. Many institutions have chronological courses that are like our colleges and schools. You do a primary level and then you go for an advanced level. I am not saying that they are wrong. However, this is against the grain and foundation of meditation. The effects of meditation are not linear. They can be totally unpredictable. I will leave it at that here.

Timing of these effects is also important. You may not have any effects during meditation. You may feel sudden peace energy shower on you while you are driving or just walking. The rays of sun are drenching your body, sand on the beach is touching your feet and wallah, there is this heavy energy showering your whole existence. You pause, close your eyes and thank some one out there (God), feel full of gratitude and move on. You are sleeping and suddenly have this dream that is a dream of your astral body. You are able to fly. You can control your flight and move around at a level above the ground. One day you (astral body) are able to get out of your physical body and look at yourself in surprise. This can go on through to multiple levels. This may not happen the first day you meditate….but then who knows.

All this has to reflect in real life. Meditation should and will bring success. It is not just for esoteric experiences.


Caution:

Make sure you do not think negative during or around your meditation times. You may be connected to unknown corners of this universe and what you think may materialize. It is great responsibility on your part to make sure that you take meditation very seriously. It is not a casual phenomenon. Just do not try to meditate if you are not ready. There are many other things you can do with your time.

Here is one set of three meditation routines that complement each other….

I will be posting this shortly so that you have time to get ready.
