Meditation


Interviewed by Eden Kozlowski, Meditation Editor on ATH

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Eden: I’m going to give a quick background on you and then go into some questions. From my perspective, Sri Sri’s message is very simple… it is about bridging the gaps. The gaps that are created by our perceived differences stemming from pride, nationalism, religion which create war, famine, poverty and lack. So, these deep holes move us away from the concept that our differences are to be cherished as we are each so unique…. and, oddly enough in that uniqueness, discovering that we are also so much the same and connected. Connected in ways that the human mind has trouble grasping. However, in the quiet of meditation, we can find that calm and that deep understanding that… at the end of the day… we all want the same thing… peace and happiness. In a Huffington Post article titled Food for the Soul, Sri Sri calls it our “original nature...”

 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: In 2009 Forbes ranked Sri Sri Ravi Shankar number five when calculating the seven most powerful people in India. From my perspective... he is simply an amazing person whose mission is to propagate meditation and the happiness that blossoms from the practice. AND, I got to talk to him from my basement while my kids, cat and dog were all upstairs! Isn't life just magical?! AND, apologizing now to Sri Sri for cutting him off several times within the delicate pauses... ugg, but is what it is, right?

 

 

Meditation 


by Anne Sture Tucker

I don’t know about you – but my meditation practice went down the drain as we got into summer with the kids being home, guests arriving, dog sitting, trips away from home and things going on all the time.

Meditation is one of those things that is as important to me as brushing my teeth. It is where I reconnect with myself, find balance, tune in to my core, listen to the songs of my soul and come home...

 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Anne is right... when you can't sit down for a meditation, opening yourself up to being mindful in the moment is the same... yet different but the same. It is so easy yet complex... but easy. Ok, I could continue to go round and round. Hope my point is made.

 

Meditation


by Chakra: Vortex of Light

After you have grounded and centered yourself and are in a comfortable position, close your eyes and picture yourself. You can do this a number of ways. You can remember an actual photograph that has been taken of you and see it in your mind's eye. You can look at yourself in the mirror before beginning this meditation and recall the image of yourself. You can visualize yourself floating up and out of your body and then look down at it.

 

Editor’s note: Chakras are defined as wheels or vortexes of energy. There are seven primary chakras that flow through a human’s energetic system. It is through these seven energy centers that it is believed that vitality pulses energizing many of our physical, emotional and mental states. There is a wide literature on chakra models, philosophy and lore that underpin many philosophical systems and spiritual energy practices, religious observance and personal discipline.


"You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."

Meditation


by Leonard Jacobson

Being present is immensely worthwhile. It opens you into the truth of life. It opens you into peace, love, truth and Oneness. It releases you from the pain of the past and anxiety about the future. It empowers you to be yourself and express yourself fully...

 

Editor's Note from J. Stewart Dixon: Here's a quick simple list of suggestions from Leonard Jacobson that will help with your own awakening process. I really like the first suggestion.  Awakening does not require perfection.  Awakening invites us to embrace and love our IMperfections....our shadow...our wounds...our limitations.  It all gets absorbed in loving presence...

 

Meditation


by Joan Kaplan, MA, LMT

Self expression, in any form you feel moved to be creative, is healing, liberating, and brings you closer to the core of who you are. The form in which you choose to express yourself is not so important...

 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: How do you connect to your inner voice?

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Interesting analogy about thoughts.

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Short and sweet. I am working right now on "being nothing."

 

Meditation


by Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche

Visualize that you are surrounded by all sentient beings, with your mother seated to your left and your father to your right. In front of you, visualize an enemy; someone who dislikes you or wishes you harm. Behind you, place your dearest friend; the person to whom you are most attached. To the side, visualize a stranger; someone for whom your feelings are neutral.

 

Editor’s Notes: A great line to ponder from this meditation...”An enemy is my greatest need, the source of all beings’ enlightenment, including my own.” Now, go read it all!

 


 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Here's something a little different for the meditation page. Have you heard about ASMR videos? Allure magazine calls them "one of the strangest things on the Internet." ASMR stands for autonomous sensory meridian response and describes a positive tingling feeling that some experience in their bodies in response to sounds and experiences. Another group has named the sensation the attention induced head orgasm – that should get your attention! Per Wikipedia there is no concrete science behind ASMR, they speak of its cult-like following, and that it is a possible relief for insomnia and anxiety.

Some even compare the experience to meditation which is why I checked it out. So, see what you think. GentleWhispering, featured here, is apparently the most popular ASMR channel on YouTube. Here she is folding clothes (note... she does fold her underwear - they say these video's aren't meant to be sexual but they all seem to have a hint of sensuality). And, most of the ASMR presenters seem to be women.

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Gosh, just listen... please. Take two minutes to simply connect with yourself and the perfection that is you!
