Meditation Magic

Flying Birds Eye View

I love meditating and indulge myself daily in this liberating experience. This discipline has made a remarkable improvement in the area of my spiritual, mental, and physical strength.

I journey through my body, from the top of my head and on to the soles of my feet, using a homespun mantra of thanksgiving for the perfect health of every component in this precious body of mine.

From here, taking sound advice from my unofficial distance mentor, Eckart Tolle (‘The Power of Now.’) Who says that we should never chase the thoughts coming into our minds, but rather observe them, without becoming involved, I enter my meditative state.

“Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment.” – Alan Watts

My aim, with no pre-planned strategy in mind, is to silently drift, as clouds do ahead of the winds, in a yoga pose seated on the floor. I have no idea if the pose is essential to a deeper meditation or not, but at the very least, it does wonders for my posture.

More recently, in my meditation, I have taken to ‘flying’ in my body, sometimes only thirty or forty meters above the ground. Because I am invisible to the naked eye, I can observe, unnoticed by humans, animals, and birdlife, as they go about their daily activities. At other times I soar above the clouds and see the curvature of the earth below. I am grateful that I have sufficient ‘pictures’ in my mind to achieve all this. It’s so peaceful, relaxing, and above all – calming. I am slowly learning the art of ‘being.’

For me there are no rules, except to gain maximum from Eckart’s teaching, I steer myself into the now moment and discipline myself to remaining there.

Aaah, sweet bliss, I love this time, first thing in my day.

Sapientiam Quaerere

wisdom 2How many of us are looking for something?

Wealth, health, longevity, better looks, more knowledge, better employment, more successful business. These and countless others are on most of our shopping lists.

Have we any idea the extensive lists of motivation, training, coaching, education and self-help that’s out there, waiting for us to collect our share and drop into our shopping basket?

To say nothing of all the books, magazines, videos and such that are all offering:

Bigger, better, best….

But there are no offers out there to teach wisdom.

Ah yes there are those spiritual denizen’s who will lead you to the bible where resides much wisdom and in fact the only guide as to where wisdom is found.

But wisdom cannot be taught and whilst we can be wisely taught, we cannot Wisdombe taught wisdom.

Looking at history, we can come up with many names of people who were wise beyond their peers; just to name a few of these:  Mahatma Gandhi, Aristotle, Socrates, Solomon, Jesus of Nazareth, Gautama Buddha, Florence Nightingale, Ben Franklin, Albert Einstein, Nelson Mandela.

I doubt that any of these had graduate certificates on wisdom, yet they were, by any standards, wise.

The simple fact is that wisdom can only be found.

Where the is wisdom found?

Wisdom is found in our innermost being, where those that search for it, find it, listen to it and apply what it tells them to do in their lives. 

There’s more…. A person who is wise attracts others; those who desire what the wise person has. These begin to seek and because the law says, “Seek and you will find” – they find it.

Imagine a world with only a quarter of its population filled with wise people….

Wisdom calls aloud in the street. She utters her voice in the public squares. She calls at the head of noisy places. At the entrance of the city gates, she utters her words: How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity? How long will mockers delight themselves in mockery, and fools hate knowledge?”

I’ve been to paradise, but I’ve never been to me.

I promised that my next article would be about the “things my father taught me”

But recently I had a life changing experience, which I would like to share with you today. The title of this article is from a Randy Crawford song… Which resonates with me currently.

  • Adventure in preparing inexpensive simple, different-from-the-usual-meal, table settings.
  • Adventure in having a completely different-from-the-usual attitude to your partner and your meal.
  • As a cherry-on-the-top, some different-from-the-usual wine, of a taste that you would both enjoy.
  • Soft background music is optional.

Take our idea and make it your own. It will improve your marriage, lifestyle and as a big plus – your health as well!
