The Universal State
There were many others present in my meditation today. Immanuel approached me from within the understood center of my mind, and we sat together and 'talked.' He spoke to me about the process of making a meaningful life for oneself, and that through meditation and the experience of God's Presence, the spiritual meaning that rejuvenates one in all ways is known. This is already understood within my own center, but the reminder to look through the Spiritual eye within, and accept all loving expressions was the point. It is in this acceptance of success - this rejuvination from within meditation - that expands the mind to the universal state.
Still the Chatter 'in Your Head'
The point of having a memory is so that one may learn for himself who he is. It may not always seem that this is what memory is for, but overall it is a perceptual construct - a room in the mansion of one's mind - that should serve the Highest Form. Through meditation one sees his own mind (and sometimes memories), and with focus may also see the Presence of the Highest Spiritual Known. Upon arrival (realization), only kindness, love, and a Divine understanding may be present. Overall, if God serves up memories, they will be wonderful, peaceful, and loving.
If 'you' are still mired in the ego, and have not practiced one-pointed focus to still the chatter 'in your head,' then the kindest recourse is to muster some curiousity and begin. In this way, memories are allowed to do their job, which is to reveal a part of your story for examination, re-consideration, or appreciation. Staying positive is the Highest recourse when a memory arrives.
Devote Time to the Spirit of the Endeavor
Maintenance of a meditative practice is not only about creating the private, silent time to be with God's Mind and in His Presence. It is a daily reminder of what is bottom-line-important, and that is the relationship you have with inner peace and joy. To meditate is to establish a daily time for love, kindness, and the experience of joy within oneself. Other feelings may be present, but I have found that time devoted to the Spirit of the endeavor, results in the deep desire to dwell directly in one's Greatest Love. Eventually, a state-of-universal-consciousness is achieved, and time is more meaningful, as it is now informed from beyond the outermost physical mind.
Use the Master's Tool
Overall, to make a meaningful life, meditation is the master's tool. By electing to sit in one-pointed focus, through a point between the eyebrows, in a relaxed gaze of about 6 inches in front of you, the whole mind expands to 380 degrees and beyond. The 'Sixth Sense' is now present, alongside peace and joy, and the experience transmutes all understanding to a transparency insightful of all that is Love. At this point, all 'you' have to do is look.
