Morya's Comments on the Importance of Meditation and Stillness
Good morning, everyone. God bless you. Thank you for being with us today. In about an hour and twenty minutes we have Boyd Badten's class on stillness. And normally the masters will have me share afterwards some concepts that will highlight and illuminate what has been shared. Today beloved El Morya shared a few concepts with me earlier to hopefully inspire some of you who may not have registered for this class to do so. And even if it's too late for you to register for the live class, you can consider taking the class later.
Morya says that meditation helps us to take the temperature and understand the temperament of the world around us and the world within us. We have been adjured to do this in the morning when we awaken in order to feel what it is that is acting in the world and to look at the weather around and within us. This is so that we can meet the day with great harmony and peace in our hearts, with great loving intention in our souls and spirits, and then move through our day with great spiritual aplomb and the brooding beneficence that illumines and feeds everything that we place our consciousness upon with love and light.
He says that meditation is a type of spiritual shower that we take within stillness. It helps to recondition our senses to experience the sublime world, the supernatural world. We have so much outer stimuli in this world that our inner soul senses have become jarred and marred and irritated. They require a gentle and serene massage in order that freedom may reign within us—the freedom to share what we must with the world and to have the Divine share with us the truths of our higher consciousness so that we can literally pray, sing, dance and play with light, with God's virtues, with God's essences.
Meditation brings the Divine into the center of our being through the sacred portal that is created in the mystical, magical and miraculous experience of silence. Silence allows us to hear the divine voice within us and to feel the divine impulses of ESP, extrasensory perception, within. So if you desire to develop your higher faculties, your soul faculties and then your Buddhic faculties, your Atmic faculties, your solar and your cosmic faculties, meditation really is a must.
For most people, prayer is a beseeching or a request of the Divine to invest its graces and energies within their world, often for the purpose of healing, of accomplishing something or of helping people. And this is all well and good. Meditation is a means of precipitating the time for us to accept and allow these graces, these blessings to bestow their miracle light deep within us.
So prayer and meditation are like two sides of the same coin and both are essential. Sometimes we are in more of the beseeching mode than the accepting mode, so we have to learn how to be receptive through stillness and acquiesce to the will of God through surrender, which can be facilitated and magnified by stillness.
Meditation soothes the overstimulated neural network within us that is activated by what we experience in life through our five outer senses. Meditation mollifies those sensory cells and the experiences that we have through them so that they can begin to feed more on solar light, divine light, the mystical regions of cosmic space rather than human emotion, human reactivity and human thought and feeling.
When we meditate deeply, reverently and in the sacred space of love and light, we access what the nine choirs of angels are willing to grace us with of their quintessences, which flow from the altar of God. In meditation, these divine beings, these angels, do come around us and feed us light and divine energy through our higher solar cells and the quintessences of our Presence.
Meditation is how we are able to enter the peaceable kingdom, the regions, avenues, streets of the Holy City, where we can experience so much divine joy and the inner harmony of peace that only comes when we commune with the Prince of Peace in that mystical city of light within ourselves. We will begin to have those deeper communions with Spirit, those deeper communications with Spirit, and we can very conscientiously and consciously collaborate with the community of the Holy Spirit that exists in the higher world and at subtler levels of our world, because when we are still and in the Great Silence, we see, hear, feel, taste, touch, smell and experience through those extrasensory perceptors and receptors within us.
Many try to experience higher states of awareness by taking drugs. Now ayahuasca is a big deal and there is so much marijuana everywhere in the United States. This really is a cop-out for avoiding the deeper possibility of experiencing God and divine light within in the most natural and beautiful way, without recourse to the jarring stimuli of drugs, which may heighten us for a while, may push us into another world. Yet what happens after a while? We can't get there through our own inner effort. We are reliant upon that drug and outer stimuli to get us there. This is not self-mastery; this is not the way of the higher initiates.
When we consider the divine avenues that we can walk upon and the streets of light that we can amble upon in order to commune with the divine world, we will take heart in knowing that we can move effortlessly and wondrously upon these avenues and streets with God and with our ascended-master friends and benefactors at our side. And they will lead us when we obey their injunctions; when we listen to the inner voice; and when we are true to ourselves by abiding in the sacred space of light within our hearts and our higher minds as we meditate, pray and are fulfilled in that light and within those essences that are beautiful, holy, pure and undefiled.
There is much transpiring in the world now of inharmony through a very concerted and planned effort to create division and strife. And we can actually help to transmute, abate and eradicate some of this by mastering ourselves through the science and art of stillness through a higher meditation practice. If we truly desire to manifest peace within the world, we begin within ourselves. And that peace has to be an actuality, a reality, rather than something that we talk about or even pray about, yet have not fully experienced through stillness and silence.
So if you desire to make the biggest impact on the world, in addition to the dynamic decrees and prayers that we give you can fuel your soul through stillness, which you can truly abide within and reverently know and realize by practicing daily. You can engage in that sacred time before you go to work and sometimes after work or after your final meal of the day or other evening activity, which can prepare you to retire to bed for the night. And know that God is there within the meditation. The light is there at the center of the circle that you create around yourself through stillness—the sphere of light that abides to guard, protect and seal you in that inviolate divine energy when you invoke it to safeguard your time of stillness.
It is important, El Morya says, to surround yourself with light when you begin your meditation and possibly invoke that Diamond-Crystal Tube of Light or a sphere of light around you—blue fire, white fire. So invoke that light around you to seal and protect your experience so that it may be very holy and wondrous.
I'm looking forward to what Boyd will share about how we can go deeper, based on his years of meditation, so that we have a greater understanding of the dynamics and levels of the path of initiation inside of us through the practice of stillness and meditation. The path of initiation is one that we walk, whether we know it or not. And I believe that those who take the time to meditate and enter the Great Silence through stillness are more aware of the initiations that are coming, those that are already here and those that we have had; because they are sensitive to what is transpiring all around them and the flow of energy, and they have the mindfulness that is required to meet those initiations and to pass those tests.
So being mindful is part and parcel of having self-mastery. When we are mindful through stillness, we can make the right choices. When we are always scurrying about, hurrying here and there, and not breathing deeply instead of keeping calm, gently assessing what is next and considering what is at play, we often misqualify energy or do things that we later regret. So sometimes slowing down is very important.
I was talking to somebody yesterday who had an accident at home and broke a bunch of ribs and had a lung puncture from just tripping over a ball—a tennis ball that the cat plays with—and falling forward onto the tub, hitting his chest area and cracking all these ribs. This person was out for over a month, couldn't work. What he said was that everything slowed down, and he realized that this was a message for him to slow down. This person has been very, very active in his work and is a dynamo of energy, nonstop, the energizer bunny type. For some of you who have experienced this type of thing, you know that it is a message from the universe to go within, abide in stillness and get the message. And sometimes it takes a little bit of a stretch of a situation like this to get the message across.
So I pray that all of you, through the harmonization of the light of consciousness within you, will be able to be much more perceptive, receptive and careful in everything that you do, in the way that you comport yourselves and move through life, the way that you communicate, speak with others and grace the world with your field of love and joy—and that the harmony that you express will truly co-create the new divine world that we are all working together to precipitate.
So thank you for listening. Thank you, ________ and __________and all of those in Dallas area, ________and company, for your love and your light. God bless you and have a wonderful day. See you in about an hour.
