Meditation - Your Route
By Kenny Lindsay
A few years ago if someone had asked me whether
or not I would consider using meditation as part of my daily routine I would
have laughed. Who was I to need meditation? After all I had TV Programmes to
watch, Playstations to play, Music to listen to, Magazines to read, Friends to
chatter with and everything else under the sun. I didn't need meditation. Or so
I thought. At that time I looked upon meditation as something cranky, something
that perhaps took place at a commune or some other barren location. No, I live
in the modern world with loads of gadgets and gizmos, why on earth would I even
consider trying something as ludicrous as closing my eyes and just relaxing.
Well, that was my previous viewpoint and one that I held until I reached a point
when things weren't going to well in my life and I needed a solution.
At this point in time I had begun to ask some
serious questions about my life. I had entered the phase that I now like to call
" The Searching Phase". I started to read some Personal
Development books and listened to a couple of tapes. These showed me techniques
and solutions that I could implement in my life to get it going in the direction
that I wanted it to. However, there was still an absence of peace. It was not
until my mum gave me a Meditation CD that I began to feel a sense of peace and
happiness about my life.
I can still remember my first meditation. I
started listening to the soothing music and imagined the glorious white light
filling my body and radiating peace and healing. I felt a numbness, a sort of
immunity to any bad feelings and a magical tingling feel all over my skin. I was
no longer attached to the material world and its limitations and felt at one
with my spirit. I experienced more relaxation, sense of belonging and peace in
my soul than in any other time in my life.
If for any reason at all you are experiencing
stress, anxiety, worry, fear, over-whelment you must meditate. This is the cure,
the path, the way to peace. When you start your life will change in ways beyond
what you could possibly have imagined.
