A morning meditation practice for me is essential to having a balanced, self-love and service filled day. I need to start the day in a place of awareness of who I really am, which is a being of light and unconditional love. I am an integral part of the eternal, infinite ONE, ALL. Although I have unique qualities, strengths and weaknesses that make me the special energy that I am, it is for and of this one, all that I am. Meditation quiets my mind so that I can experience on every level, with every cell that I am perfect and an important part of the plan for humanity. When I start each day grounded in this truth all that I am able to perceive is the indescribable beauty that is everywhere because it is within me. It is, without a doubt, always within me and within every living, breathing being, but without the exposure to the knowledge from my meditation practice, that reality is easily forgotten.
I believe that being human and living life one day at a time is the most powerful spiritual experience that we have. Waking up every morning, going to the bathroom, giving body fluids and foods, moving body around, going to work or play (hopefully being of service), participating in our relationships with family and friends, doing what makes us happy, cleaning and caring for body, laying down for sleep- everything we fit into our days is all a part of this Earth school experience.
The deeper part of our selves' natural state is to be in joy whether our personalities needs and expectation are met or not. Because whether or not we think our tiny ideas and desires are fulfilled to the personality’s standards or preference, they are always exactly what the soul requires, without exception, every single time. This changes my response every single event, large and small, that happens on a daily basis that I am in the energy field of. Every experience then, can only be or mean unconditional love and growth. Tendencies towards anger, judgment or sadness disappear in the light of the truth.
In the light of my understanding that every single second of every moment is for my ultimate growth and purpose, these petty feelings have no strength, no power at all. So all of this begs the question- "How can I stay close to this truth at all times? In every moment and every interaction?" My answer for today is to start with your morning meditation, it’s a wonderful place to begin. I think we have a much better chance of sustaining these frequencies when we start in this place. It’s like the law of inertia which states that something in motion remains in motion. Give the pure positive energy that is always pulsating within the core of who you are, the center stage of your day, let it be the foundation for each beginning, or start point, let it carry you, let it show you throughout the day how love and loved you are.
