is based on:
• The object (the inner Self),
• The Mantra,
• The seating posture in which we are able to sit in comfort for a
long period of nntime,
• Natural, steady breathing.
These four aspects interact with each other and allow us to meditate
easily and effortlessly.
Meditating on the Self is easy and effortless and can be practised
by anyone of any age. The more we long for meditation, the more
we wish for the inner awakening and the direct contact with the
universally conscious energy, the closer we get to them.
The more regularly we meditate, the sooner and more frequently
we experience the universally conscious energy, and the more
continuously we regenerate physically and psychologically.
The person who meditates regularly and whilst doing so transcends
will ultimately discover that our Self is not encased in only
one, but in four layers. One after the other, he would then consciously
experience each of these four layers until he has reached the
aim; his Self.
The energetic body is practically the residence of the universally
conscious energy, the form of the Self in us. Those who observe
this form in themselves will also see it in others. Those who
delve into this energy will know that ‘they are a part
of the universally conscious energy’ (religiously: God).
This state is the climax of meditation. In this state all limits
disappear and the feeling of individuality melts away. We experience
the universally conscious viewpoint, allowing us to observe the
world without contradictions and differences. Instead of seeing
differences between man and woman, east and west, big and small,
good and bad, past and future, we understand that the whole universe
is an extension of the universally conscious energy. We recognise
that everything is a moving form of the consciousness and that
everything ascends from and then sinks back into the universally
conscious energy, just as the waves of the ocean rise and sink
back into the ocean.
In order to reach this state, we meditate.
As soon as we have reached this state, we no longer need to close
our eyes when we sit down to meditate. Consequently, wherever
we look, we see universally conscious energy. Consequently, whatever
we hear, we hear universally conscious energy. In this state
we experience uninterrupted bliss.
