Deep Meditation

"Prayer is when the mind is one-pointed and man talks to Infinity. Meditation is when the mind becomes totally clean and receptive, and Infinity talks to the man."
⁃ Yogi Bhajan

"There is a myth that when you sit down you should be able to quiet your mind. The mind generates thousands of thoughts per second. When you sit quietly and turn the focus inward, you become very aware of what is going on in the background of your mind. Distractions are the rule. Just keep going back to the mantra or other points of focus. Do not evaluate or react to the extraneous thoughts. Have patience with yourself." (via 3HO.org)

"Meditation can frequently be blissful or very cozy as the meditative mind establishes a place of elevated consciousness. Sometimes meditation can be downright miserable. Meditation is a cleansing process. You may find yourself observing some very unpleasant, ugly thoughts while you’re meditating. The important thing is, keep up! The meditations are doing their job. You’re cleaning out and getting rid of negativity that has been covering up the divine light inside you." (via 3HO.org)

Ready for deep meditative experience? Join me in class this weekend for a kundalini yoga kriya designed to prepare you for meditation by purifying the blood, expanding the lung capacity, stimulating the thyroid and parathyroid, and enlarging the upper magnetic field. This is excellent practice for all but especially for those who want to learn deep meditation.
