MEDITATION The key value of meditation is its ability to give you a break from that non-stop monologue originating in your head by that “ego” basic operating system. Many people have expressed negative ideas about the ego. We want to dispel those ideas right away. The ego can be a trusted assistant and adviser but too many people allow their ego’s to convince them the voice of the character they have created is supposed to be in charge. Calling it the basic operating system of your bio-computer brain is a very accurate analogy. The only reason that it should not be allowed to be fully in charge of your life is that it only has access to what you have already experienced to define reality. It really is not capable of “thinking out of the box”. The reality of the ego is totally “object” based – everything that it believes is from “out there”. It is the expression of the “collective unconscious” using the term coined by Carl Jung. It does not have any access to higher “non-object” based consciousness where you are tapping into the cloud network of the non-physical energy domain.
Meditation allows you to temporarily move the ego voice to the background and allow a connection with your higher self. This is the source of all inspiration and access to your powers of intentional creation – your true creative power. There will actually be changes in your brain electrical pathways every time you meditate. Studies have proven increases in brain synchrony and reductions in emotional distress as a result of even short periods of meditation. It is advisable to become a daily mediator as the effects are cumulative.
Find a comfortable spot where you can sit quietly without being disturbed for 15-20 minutes. Ideally connect a set of headphones to the audio out connection on this device and then listen to this segment from one of Oprah and Deepak Chopra’s excellent 21 Day Meditation Series…
