“From meditation springs wisdom.” -The Buddha
“Meditation is a way for nourishing and blossoming the divinity within you.” ~Amit Ray
What is Meditation?
Meditation is simply directing your attention with a state of awareness. Through a wide range of techniques, we can silence the mind and increase our capacity for peace. Meditation can help you to find out more about yourself. As we become more open, we leave the ego state behind and experience a sense of being connected to everything. It’s a place where we stop seeking and just allow a state of awareness.
DAILY MEDITATION by Christopher Titmuss
Let us be still for a few moments
Without moving even our little finger
So that a hush descends upon us.
There would be no place to go,
Nor to come from,
For we would have arrived in this extraordinary moment
There would be a stillness and silence,
That would fill all of our senses,
Where all things would find their rest.
Everything would then be together in a deep connection.
Putting an end to ‘us and them’, this against that.
We would not move in these brief moments
For that would disturb this palpable presence;
There would be nothing to be said nor done
For life would embrace us in this wondrous meeting
And take us into its arms as a loving friend.
