The Secret to Meditation

Updated: Jan 4

The heart is the key to #meditation. I refer to this as Heartfulness Meditation. It is the secret to life because paradoxically, it is the last place people look to find the answer to the greatest mystery of life, “Who Am I?” The secret to life is hidden in the heart behind the veils and walls of our own creation, the pains and suffering of believing in a life of separation. The heart is the beginning and the end of our journey of #Awakening and #Self-Realization. The heart is the ‘Be All and Get All’ of life. Heart Is #Love. Heart is #Contentment. Heart is #Fulfillment. Heart is #Connection. Heart is #Truth. Heart is #Oneness. There is only ONE Heart!

Heart-based meditation is the practice of connecting with ‘All That Is’ within you. Everything is contained in the heart. Everything we're looking for is in the heart. The answer to all of our questions are in the heart. The answer to the one question that is the Alpha and the Omega of spirituality, “Who am I?”, is in the feeling nature and portal that we call the heart.

What is mindfulness? Why would anyone want mindfulness? Let us look at the meaning of the root words and these two thoughts that we keep injecting into the meditation practice. Mind and Fullness are the two intentions created in a Mindfulness practice. Is not the purpose of meditation to still the mind? “Be still and know that I am God!”

Let us not travel the road of filling the mind with thoughts. That is not the objective of meditation. This leads, ultimately, to a struggle for control of the thoughts and deeper still, the #Mind itself. And who is this struggle with? This struggle is between two competing facets of the ego. First is the personality, that which has a name and is a compilation of all the beliefs and experience of a life in physical form. That which we call I. It is also referred to as the pseudo-soul, or the 3rd dimensional counterpart of the infinite Soul. And then there is the ego, that voice that is always speaking in your head and identifying with things that it is not and taking ownership of thoughts and action as if it was the doer. It is constantly judging events and looking for the safest alternative. The #ego’s primary job is self-preservation.
