The Enlightening Secrets to Meditation
How to Discover Your Natural State of Bliss
“You need not leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. You need not even listen, simply wait. You need not even wait, just learn to become quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked. It has no other choice. It will roll in ecstasy at your feet.” ~Franz Kafka
If there was only one purpose for having a meditation practice daily, it would be this. To transcend the drama and illusions created by the mind and deeply realize that WHAT you are is the all-powerful, unconditionally loving, omniscient God Source behind it all! This understanding would be the end of your suffering on Earth forever.
Before you begin to become a devoted spiritual aspirant on the path to enlightenment, meditating religiously every day, it’s important to know that there are three types of meditation. Real mediation, mind meditation and the divine meeting of the two. In the realm of mind meditation, you are engaging the mind to focus on a mantra, a sacred image, a guru, an enlightened thought or some idea that you think is going to help you transcend the mind.
Now the realm of real meditation might be hard for you to imagine because you are not engaging the mind at all. It is not about focusing or concentrating on anything, yet rather relaxing into this NOW experience of life that is free from the mind. It is about letting go of this mind-habit, relinquishing attachment to all thinking and exploring the deeper silence and stillness of the mind. When there is perfect inner stillness there will be tremendous clarity that reveals the powerful divinity within you and all around you.
The third type of meditation is the most mysterious one of all. This is the edge between the mind and no mind, where the worlds meet and dissolve into each other as one. If you can find this edge and ride it, you will move into a space of transcending your ego, or all identifications you have about who/what you are. It is the most tricky and challenging space to arrive in, as the mind will constantly try to pull you back into thinking. Yet, if you can play around this edge, devote your practice to letting yourself merge with it, you’ll find it truly is the state of real bliss or Nirvana (the extinguishing of the mind/ego).
Once the mind stops its perpetual search for more and begins to simply relax being fully present to what is, then everything becomes very clear and blissful. Quiet your mind chatter and you will master THIS moment. Master this very moment and you’ll uncover the sacred purpose of your entire life.
A completely unfocused quiet mind is able to relax and receive its desires a thousand 1000 times easier than a rigidly focused tense mind. Why is this? Focus creates a tension, the mind is consumed with the past tense and the future tense. It cannot fully be in the present moment where all the power, energy and life source is found.
Whatever it is you most crave to experience in this lifetime, it is easily found through mastering the mind, teaching and training how to remain one-pointed, focused in one single direction. The untrained mind moves always from one thought to the next, never realizing that it is focusing on each thought bringing it into manifestation. We are manifesting machines, so whatever we focus on is what we manifest.
If we can learn how to be still, empty, silent and unfocused for even a few minutes a day, we will find a deep harmony with the Universal Source and discover how joyful and easy it is for your desires to manifest themselves through you.
Maybe it’s more happiness, money, success, love, and or health that you desire. Whatever it is that you want, a calm centered meditative mind is always more effective and efficient in manifesting your desires than an incessant chatterbox. Meditation is that bridge to bringing our very dreams and desires into physical form. It’s the link we’ve been missing our entire lives. It is the gateway to an eternal river of inner-bliss that naturally unfolds successfulness in everything we do.
Like taming a wild animal, our mind can get crazier and wilder when with any attempt to control it. However, the more frequent we sit and find quietness inside, the more your mind will discover the freedom to play, laugh with life, enjoy the play of duality and transcend all suffering. Only with a calm centered mind and body, we can explore any unknown and are metaphysically opening up the greatest manifesting channels of energy in the Universe.
Learning how to meditate is the secret to perfect mental, emotional and physical health and wealth. It is imperative that you practice connecting with the spiritual being that you truly are if you want total freedom from suffering. Spiritual connections are what awakens us to a higher state of consciousness. Meditation opens up our natural manifesting powers, increases our feelings of self-appreciation, self-approval, and self-love. It perpetuates this wonderful healing experience that will allow you to attract more of the most positive loving experiences that you desire in your life.
Meditation is an effortless state of being. Not doing anything we stop the mental chatter and ego struggle to be more, have more and do more to be happy. In this peaceful awareness, our own energy naturally becomes a lesson for ourselves as well for others who want to live a powerful loving and more conscious life.
If you are constantly struggling with life, you are probably not meditating daily. You are most like attached to your mind (ego), stuck like superglue to the thoughts flowing through you. By unconsciously experiencing the effects of each thought coming through, you are perpetuating suffering. Stop this mind!
Meditating for 30 minutes a day will clear out the “cobwebs” created by the mind, empowering you to be the commander of your ship. In a meditative experience, you can easily find the route to enjoy sailing towards the destination of your dreams! Meditation also enables you to be at total peace with life in the midst of the worst possible life situations. Even after a few moments of reaching complete stillness in the mind, we can really relax about our life, knowing we are totally free beings and a new sense of power and certainty arises inside.

Enlightenment is a process of peeling back the layers of yourself that are resisting being one with your Infinite Nature. It is an opening of your Divine Essence, to your Universal Being. When you do, there is a deep stillness…and at the very center of this, you’ll find a radical spiritual experience. Your Enlightenment is not far away, it is available right now. It is at the innermost core of your being. Nothing you need to do to achieve it, except relax…really relax. And rest deeply in the quiet peaceful still center at the heart of your being. ~Jafree Ozwald
