The Essential Secrets to Meditation, Mastering the Material World and Transcending Suffering
“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
The secrets to mastering the material world and transcending suffering are within you. It’s all about bringing more awareness to your inner world. Learning how to quiet the mind (meditate) is the essential foundation to self-mastery and a profound inner peace.
When you quiet the mind, you become free from its grasp on you, and can “control” it. This illusion of control is a wonderful one, in that we truly discover a place of deep peace, power, and creativity inside.
The mind can never totally be controlled, nor would we want to always be in control of it. That’s way to much work and wouldn’t allow you to really enjoy your life. Mind mastery happens when you drop the mind… completely. When you are free from the clutches of your thoughts and can welcome any experience that comes your way.
Letting go of the mind doesn’t mean you don’t think thoughts again, it just means you are not “buying into” their dramatic stories. This allows you to step into a life of bliss where the manifestation of your every single desire becomes very simple and easy.
Meditation is the key in that it enables you to step away from the mind enough to be able to hold it on what you want, instead of what you don’t want. When you are focused on what you want for long enough periods of time, with plenty of emotion behind it, you can attract ANY experience into your life.
You’ll be more centered in times of chaos, more able to manifest what you want physically, and more healthy emotionally, mentally and physically! The devotion to yourself and constant self-love will be well worth it for years to come!
When you become the master of your mind, you will automatically and naturally master your life. There’s nothing you do to actually “meditate”. If you cannot focus your mind to be present for a few minutes that is OK. It just means you have experience in being unfocused. So practice being unfocused and simply sit with it. Being unfocused and experience your own divine presence. This is the doorway to enlightenment and what transcending suffering is all about.
Practice being with what is, and letting everything be as it is. This will train and tame the mind to truly obey you. The mind tends to rebel, wander and be restless and thinks it needs more structure or control to attain all the egos goals. Yet, mind mastery is just the opposite. When you let go of control and surrender to the infinite source of the soul that you are, you master THIS moment.
There are basically two kinds of meditation, the traditional and the non-traditional. Traditional meditation techniques would include the repetition of an affirmation such as chanting a mantra, or perhaps following your breath, gazing into a candle flame etc. These are done for the sole purpose of training the mind to remain more in the present moment. These techniques use a fixed experience inside or outside the body, such as a thought or idea, to center and still the mind.
With the non-traditional approach, anything and everything you do can become a meditation. Walking to the bus stop, making dinner, washing your clothes, eating, etc. Just try witnessing the sensation of air passing in and out of your nostrils. In any experience, you can learn how to calm the mind. These everyday experiences become meditative when you bring a mindfulness and a fullness of your being into your experience.
The big question now is how much consciousness and presence can you have while you’re washing the dishes? Feeling the warm water run across your hands, the sound of scrubbing the pot, this too can be your ticket to transcending suffering, mastering the material world and entering meditation.

The 3 Meditation Secrets to Finding Real Bliss
#1 Learn How to Relax your Entire Body. Bliss is found through letting go of all tension hiding inside the hardened mental cracks and emotional crevices inside you. Practice sitting comfortably in a chair or on the floor, and breathe deeply for 5-10 minutes. Imagine you are releasing every single good or bad experience that arises in your body. Just release everything until you can imagine your body is filled with relaxing healing energy from head to toe. Relax your spine, yet keep it straight, vertical yet balanced like a stack of golden coins. Relax your anus, let go of any holding on the most subtle levels. Let your jaw fall so that your teeth separate, and your hands rest comfortably wherever they may fall. Just let go of everything and see what shows up in your experience.
#2 Sit very still and dissolve into the silent space inside. Do not move, yet do not try not to move. Simply be quiet, solitary and still. This is the easiest thing to do when the ego/mind is not in charge of your life, and the hardest thing when the ego/mind is running the show. It may help to pretend that you are a stone statue that just happens to breathe on its own. Don’t do anything. Learning how to be perfectly still without any movement of mind will happen on its own accord. When all your attention is resting inside, when the mind is pulled into yourself, into the “vertical center”, the body will follow. Imagine a pillar of light that flows through your spine, from the top of your head to the base of your spine and allow your mind to relax in here. Eventually, the mind will slow down and all the mental chatter will stop. Your life is a practice of patience and surrender. When thoughts arise, just watch them come in and release them as easily as they came. Notice the thoughts freely without getting caught and lost in their story. Whatever distractions that may arise, just let them rise, and return to being ‘unfocused’. Follow the source of pure presence in you. Simply be empty, completely empty, quiet and free. Your natural state of unbounded divine consciousness will find you when you are doing absolutely nothing, being purely nothing, and as still and quiet as a mountain.
#3 Honor your own Divine Presence. Bow down to the divine God being that exists everywhere, inside every atom in the Universe, including you. Experiencing your own sacred presence is not about entertaining more lofty ideas about how amazing you are, its simply humbly recognizing the truth that you are the Source of God itself. This recognition will calm the mind. If you need to focus on something, focus on being unfocused. With a 100% unfocused mind, you naturally fall into experiencing your own divinity. Be patient with this process as taming your mind is similar to training a drunk monkey on LSD. Don’t expect any results from your meditation practice. It may take 7 days to 7 months to 7 years to notice any major shifts depending on what level of spiritual attainment your soul is seeking. If you have been meditating for years with a mantra, and still do not feel you’re not spiritually evolving, then you need to drop your mantra and simply be silent. As long as you are using the mind to transcend the mind, you will be unable to drop into the God presence inside you. The mind is too small to handle infinite divinity. Just try to relax about everything and surrender into being present and completely still. The divine awareness will come to you.
