Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
We all have a morning ritual. We wake up in our own way, some begin thinking about the day ahead. Schedules, appointments, meetings, kids, family, all part of our daily lives. Before you start your day, consider taking a few moment to have a conversation with God, in your own way. The ancient Essenes taught that prayer was the feeling. Feel it from your heart and then sit quietly and listen. Feel the gratitude and appreciation for the opportunity to serve and quietly reflect your intention for the day; radiate love and compassion to all you meet. Visualize your day.
Imagination and visualization are a great tools. Mainstream has defined imagination as” the faculty or action of forming new ideas, or images or concepts of external objects not present to the senses. The ability of the mind to be creative or resourceful.”
Imagination is our ability to understand the mind, and is not limited to our physical body. When we awaken, we begin to understand, feel and recognize all the subtle energetic rhythms of the life around us; moving within our energetic field. It takes time and awareness.
Meditation Warriors is a group that was created with the intention of positively changing our world. The group provides encouragement for a daily meditation practice. Meditation can be standing, walking, sitting, and laying down. It is a about changing the way we think, a new way of thinking and how we see the world. Practicing mindfulness during the day is being aware of your thoughts, feelings and actions with your focus on what you are doing. Moving meditation, like qigong or tai chi is helpful for cultivating energy throughout the body. Lying meditation can be done before you rise and before you go to sleep at night and even when you wake up during the night. Sitting meditation for just 5 to 20 minutes a day with the right intentions sends positive vibrations into the world. There is no right or wrong way to meditate. The Kirtan Kriya method may be of some assistance for those with the real unruly mind.
We are not of different races, but one race, the human race, with a divine power within each of us. United we are one and could positively change our world!
If there is to be peace in the world, There must be peace in the nations. If there is to be peace in the nations, There must be peace in the cities. If there is to be peace in the cities, There must be peace between neighbors. If there is to be peace between neighbors, There must be peace in the home. If there is to be peace in the home, There must be peace in the heart. chinese philosopher – Lao Tzu
