While at the time that I'm writing this post we haven't added anything to the Meditations page yet, I can reassure everyone that's coming up, and for several reasons.
Meditation is key for many spiritual paths, and our path is no exception. Bishop Tom has said numerous times that meditation is the number one practice that will cause transformation in our lives.
I've always marveled over just how many methods of meditation exist- and recently, while reading Adventure in Meditation, I encountered a very different realization of how similar some methods of meditation are!
Not every method is appropriate for every person, and not every kind of meditation is oriented toward the same end goal.
That's okay. If you understand the different kinds of meditation and what they unlock, it all makes a lot more sense.
For some people, attempting to clear their mind and simply sit with awareness is virtually impossible, and they shouldn't attempt to do that- it's very unlikely that such a meditation style will do much for them aside from stressing them out.
What might be appropriate for such a person is a guided meditation or a set of specific visualizations that are conducive to relaxation.
For some people (and I myself am in this category), a beneficial meditation is one that energizes our emotional body and heals old traumas. It's a kind of energy therapy, if you will.
If at first you don't succeed, and you continue trying and don't succeed, I highly recommend trying a different kind of meditation.
We'll revisit this topic later. Perhaps some of our other members will have thoughts to share.
