Meditation Group

We try to meditate together at 9PM Pacific Time on Thursday nights for 15 minutes, but you can use the meditation at any time.

Theme for October 28--November 28, 2014
: The Energy of the Very Small

Meditation usually concerns coming to a quiet place, then entering disciplined contemplation, usually involving something that is vibrant with energy. But energy is everywhere. It emerges out of the way we address the world around us, not out of the thoughts we form, the symbols we contemplate or the rituals we perform.

This month, we engage in the practice of noticing the very small and finding the energy in this noticing. The play of sunlight on a spoon on the breakfast table reveals an astonishing purity of light. The busy movement of an ant or the buzzing about of a fly proves to contain a whole universe of meaning as these ancient creatures go about the business that they have been carrying out for hundreds of millions of years. The sound of a footfall at the door brings forth the whole energy of the person who is there, and with them all people who have ever been, steps taken and untaken, onward into the great unknown.

Find the very small in your life, and give it all the attention you can, keeping back only that which is necessary to maintain bodily sensation.

I would like the meditations to continue. (I did not submit my email, I didn't see why that was necessary. If it is then I will do so.)

From Whitley's .....Finding Ourselves in Laughter....."A dog lives for love, wanting nothing but his food, his work and the affection of his master. Similarly, God will go anywhere for love."

SO THE REASON FOR POSTING THIS IS BECAUSE I RECEIVED THE FOLLOWING VIDEO FROM A FRIEND YESTERDAY, ON THE 7th.....AND IS SYNCHRONISTIC.

You'll love this one. (From a friend).

Melting our Assumptions:

This meditation was very strange. I evoked thoughts of my wife’s cousin who died just over 2 years ago in late 2010. I had memories of good times. Then began talking about how much I loved her, we loved her, and how we all miss her and how I see so much of her in her girls every time that I see them. I felt a brief connection with something that I saw and felt at the same time with my eyes closed. I felt a strange tug literally go down the right side of my body through my head then out my right hip bone as if a string of being connected with me. All I saw was a white string like force rush through my body. It felt very natural which was odd. Then at one point my body began to spin on itself in a circular motion in a counterclockwise motion. I then felt as in a previous meditation a string like almost electric charged wormlike hair just seem to grow out of my forehead in the center just below my hairline. It felt as though I was connected somehow to something. But that something I couldn’t sense. It felt as if the energy was growing out of my forehead. I then spun forward awake. I saw it was 10:12 on my phone and went back into meditation. I began talking to my wife’s cousin again. I loved her; we all love her and miss her. Then I explained even though she left us unexpectedly that I prayed that she was happy and should be happy because her girls love her and miss her. I said I missed her and wished she was still here with us but then it clicked that we are all here together (after reading The Key) we just need to learn to make that connection and be at one with everything and not be afraid of what we discover in the unknowncountry!

Whitley and everyone.....I wanted to see my mom in this meditation, so when I closed my eyes she was there. I LOVED HER VERY MUCH. When she appeared, it came to me that I could ask a question. I asked her to share something new.....My brain/mind heard, "The eye will soon be able perceive a new color in the spectrum of colors." (All humankind will be able to do this).

As hard as I try not too, words just slip in sometimes when I am meditating, even when I am NOT asking a question.

As I was coming out of this meditation another thought entered my mind. HOWEVER, there is a real possibility that the following was stuck in my thoughts because of the interview that William Henry had with Anthony Peake. I did listen to it today BUT wanted to include the following anyway. (I know this is sort of silly but then again it feels important to include all thoughts when they enter in).

"Luke Skywalker, get out of the control room."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skywalker

May have to sit this one out.

Edit: I've decided to try for someone who I may have known, oh say in another life maybe, and work with that.

"we choose someone we loved in life, who is now departed..."

What if we have no one like that, someone who has died?

I think that meditation outside of group time is starting to become effective as well. Or it might be that doing a meditation on a good strong vibe according to your day is just as helpful, I dunno. In any case, its been good.

Laid out my Marsellies Tarot deck that is mentioned in the back of The Path. I stared and contemplated the JUSTICE card. Started my meditation warm up at 11:45 EST and ultimately went to 12:45 am , but I was clearly missing some time. Everytime I get into the zone to meditate at the beginning of the 'session' my large Maine coon cat will jump up on my chest. No matter where he is in the house, he comes when I get like 15 minutes into the session. At first I thought this to be a lark, but this is the third occurance & frankly he creates more chatter in my mind. The dog doesn't budge. Anyone else have astral cat issues? Is he tuned in to whats going on? I wonder.

I've had both my Maine Coon cat and my Lab /Australian Shepard mix howl or jump on me to prevent the OOB states or higher states of consciousness and wondered if it was related to "contact" experiences. Once I awoke in a paralyzed state aware that there were "others" walking around the bedroom and they made the mistake of trying to pick up the cat. She cleaned something's clock in a hurry. Furniture got knocked over and I heard a lot of movement and a clicking chirping sounds and squeaks of excited activity, it sounded something like a dolphin. It lasted less than a minute, but from that time on all the pets were out cold for 5 minutes or more after I regained the ability to move after a "visit".

The courage and strength to make the effort without fear:
And in the end
The love you take
Is equal to the love you make.

Meditated on Engaging The Tarot Teacher last night. I would think these next two weeks should be powerful. I am still feeling it from last night....

Whitley, and everyone.....This meditation, at least for me, was one of the best, I was able to go deeper tonight. However, the following was not expected. As much as I was trying to stay in the silence, this song (music and all came to mind). I looked up the lyrics after the meditation and these are the words that spoke to me.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axb2sHpGwHQ

[Right!
Come, oh, come, come, come.]

He roller-coaster, he got early warning
He got muddy water, he one mojo filter
He say "One and one and one is three"
Got to be good-looking cos he's so hard to see
Come together right now over me

Oh
Come together
Yeah come together
Yeah come together
Yeah come together
Yeah come together
Yeah come together
Yeah come together
Yeah oh
Come together
Yeah come together

The meditations, especially during the weekly Thursday evenings, have been very powerful. There is a warmth that accompanies the effort while directing my attention. It is like a harmony, like when a three part harmony sounds so well blended. These group efforts are very worthwhile. I am so glad Whitley suggested this idea.

During this past week's meditation, I brought my sensation to the silence around me. I surprisingly found a calm, still silence. Surrenduring myself to this silence, I began to obtain glimpses of this deep vastness from which all seems possible. I felt that my analytic brain, trying to analyze the experience prevented me from immersing deeper in this meditation. However, I gained a new sense of joy in the experiences that fill my life. From the silence, from this potential, all being exists and it is truly wonderful, all of it. There is really only love there, here and everywhere.

For me the meditation was very powerful. I don't sense the presence of others directly, but doing the mediation during the group time is far more energetic for me, so I am sure that our collective effort is working. I experienced the silence itself as something alive, conscious, everywhere and absolutely still, an observer to the universe of motion in which we live. The question 'why am I here?' gained new life for me, new mystery and new meaning. So to everybody who was out there struggling along with me, THANK YOU!

Before I started the meditation I just thought the phrase: Why am I here? Once I started, it was just mostly dark silence then would hear the word “Love” unexpectedly at different times. Saw visuals of liquid type color forms swirling and moving around in fascinating 3d type designs that were geometric but morphed around into liquid form as unfamiliar faces morphing in and out of liquid form, body chills throughout. Visuals were very alive and wormlike. Just mostly dark this time and quiet in the beginning and middle portion other than the visuals described and the one word that was heard. Then towards the end kept hearing “I want to hear the Universe, speak to me, I’m listening." Before opening my eyes I heard "Remember who you are" in soft soothing tone. I was extremely relaxed afterwards but very awake.

Ray, I had nearly the same experience as you on Jan 3. I am in Wisconsin. When asking the question, why am I here?, it was at first just random flashes back and forth and long silence. Then very clearly: "You are here to love." It rang in my head like a bell over and over, and I smiled in the dark. I now understand that we are here to create the only NEW energy in the universe: love. All else was there at the beginning, our souls, our carbon, our motion forward. But all of us in this meditation group are creators of the only element that is created new and never diminishes or dies. Love.

Melanie, That is so great to hear. Even though distance is between us and this group, it's good to know that we are all experiencing something unique together and that is truly amazing. When I read your post I got goosebumps because it confirms to me even more that what we are experiencing is real!

Well, I feel reasonably sure this dream experience is related to the meditation…..

I did the meditation, and then went to bed. I prayed for a dream, showing me wisdom and truth. Here is a synopsis of what I dreamed during the night.

I am in a shopping mall with many store fronts and many choices. None were bad choices, simply a quantum choice that would take me down a specific road.

Now with a male co-worker that I used to work with (both of us now retired) and we are putting multi colored food nuggets into bags to be distributed to the needy/hungry; there are other people working with us as well.

I am observing a gray alien, procreating with a human female, seemingly all consensual/no fear.

In a different house now where my good friend grew up and we have wonderful childhood memories here. I (HEAR) a piano and two teen voices coming from the kitchen. THE VOICES WERE SOOO SWEET. I have been in the bathroom putting on makeup but then walk out to see who is singing. The voices are coming from my two great nephews (not aware they have any exceptional musical talents). This is what they are singing, over and over. The melody is beautiful.

GIVE, GIVE, GIVE HIM A CHANCE,
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE AT A GLANCE.

Thank you Whitley..I needed a good laugh.

Whitley, I want to share this and am NOT saying it is true for everyone but it does resonate for me.....

"Where is this silence? Is it in my body or my brain, in memory or in mind?"

When going into meditation and if it is a deep meditation, there is a stirring/tingle in the PINEAL as well as the PITUITARY. It feels like a pendulum moving slowly between the two energy centers, then the movement stops bringing silence. As I thought about this it occurred to me that thought might also be stored here, the kind of thought that is really us and not what we want the world to believe we are; the thoughts that make up our REAL self.

"And we come, through this exploration, to a new question: where am I not only in space, but in time? We end by opening the door to the long shadow that stretches behind us, the true time of our soul."

EARLIER today I decided to go into meditation and sort of observe myself at the same time. I was fortunate in that I was able to go pretty deep (not always possible for me) BUT in spite of it all there was still a little voice I could not control and was not able to continue. I wrote down the words phonetically, took a walk in the park to clear my mind, came home then tried to unravel what I had written down.....The words sounded like..... TORAH KAL GLOW.....This is one of the first websites that came up and the one that made the most sense.

Chapter 8

2 When you kindle the lamps: Spiritually, lighting the lamps of the menorah means igniting our own souls and the souls of others, as King Solomon says, "The lamp of God is the soul of man." The flame of a candle constantly flickers upwards, as if yearning to leave the wick behind and ascend to the heavens. The soul shares this nature, constantly striving to break out of the boundaries imposed on it by the body and the physical world and reconnect with its spiritual source.

At times, however, this nature recedes and becomes dormant. The soul is so blinded by its surroundings that it forgets its natural thirst for Divinity. This is why the lamps must be kindled. They must be reminded of their innate desire to ascend.

The seven lamps signify the seven basic types of souls, each having its particular path in accomplishing God's purposes based on one of the seven basic emotions. Just as the seven lamps are all part of one candelabrum, all the diverse types of Jews form one collective body. Still, because our Divine mission is the purpose of our existence, our separate paths in achieving it make us separate "lamps"; what we do defines who we are.

However, there is a deeper level of the soul, where it has intrinsic value beyond its Divine mission. At this level, the soul is an end in itself rather than merely a means to an end, and there is therefore no differentiation of souls based on the differences in the way they achieve their Divine mission. The Torah therefore first refers to the lamps in general, rather than to a specific number, for the elevation it requires us to seek is intended to reach the level where we are all one.

During my meditation on the 29th of November, I had a hard time concentrating on the silence too. I had good sensation of my body but when I tried to quiet everything else down as I had done the previous week, the silence wasn't there. I wasn't aware of any words in particular. Instead of fighting it, I just sensed my body and imagined the group working together and felt the connectedness of the group.

Carollee, maybe the work you had done earlier on the 29th was present in the group because the work done during meditation is really timeless and at some deep level we are all one?

Just liek to say something down to earth here:

Why can't this message board put the most recent comments at the top instead of at the end?
The first post is from August the 14th 2012!!!

During this meditation there were soft voices chattering all around me BUT from the moment I closed my eyes this song kept playing though my mind.

Leaving oneself behind is the beginning of meditation. We are named so early that we never get the chance to experience the simple mystery of being. That's why detaching from our names can be so useful. Beneath the name, there is a rich and original presence, full of mystery and humor and question. False self seeks. Real self is already there.

There is a previous meditation here on site about group meditation. It involved purple light, if that should jog the memory. Incredibly the date of that meditation is 2005. Seven years ago!

Its a must listen.

Both the 7th and the 14th are Wednesdays, not Thursdays.

Thinking about this, a few things come to mind. One, I have the attention span of a gerbil. I really ought to try studying and memorizing the intention before I start. Overkill? But I would be honoring the aim of all this and taking it seriously an all, and because, you know, gerbil.

Another thing, this was discussed at chat the other day, why is it that the meditation should happen at a specific time. Is it to strengthen a beginner's efforts, is it a placebo technique? It certainly makes me anxious to meet the start deadline - and in effect builds up a certain nervous energy, helpful to the effort now that I think about it. Is this attracting attention which is what that flume of awareness was - an eye sweeping onto my effort watching me flutter in surprise? and being very nice about it too, by not pronouncing - as I would probably question my sanity if I had actually heard something.

I don't expect an answer about this. I'm just wondering.
