Medition Tips!

3 Comments

Meditation tips:

A straight-back chair is a good idea because it is easier to stay alert and awake.
Keep the  back straight and chin up.
Relax the jaw,
Smile
Go through your passages word-for-word  and as slow as you can.
Gently close your eyes.
When the mind wanders, gently bring it back to your passage.  Try not to get irritated when the mind wanders. You might think of mind as an unruly pet.
Try not to analyze each word of your  passages or think about its meaning.  That will happen automatically without personal effort.

Mantras:

Jesus, Jesus
Rama, Rama
Om  mani padma hum.
Hail Mary, full of grace; the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of they womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Passages not in “God makes the river flow.”

Rest in natural great peace, this exhausted mind, beaten helpless by karma and neurotic thought like the relentless fury of the pounding waves in the infinite ocean of samsara.

Breathing in I calm my body breathing out I smile, dwelling in the present moment, I know this is a wonderful moment.

I have practiced meditation for 21 years. I have two sons, great friends and our meditation group is the best. I almost forgot to mention My dog Rocky. He enjoys meditation also. Bud

  1. Bud, an interesting article from the University of Cambridge. A lot of potential looms on the horizon for education. Would like to seee such a program initiated in the U.S.A.

  2. When I first started meditating, one time i felt this cold thing on my nose. It was my dog. She was nose to nose w/ me. Someone said it was because she could feel my energy. i think she was just being nosy
