Meditation Notes – Misc Mindfulness

Mindfulness Mediation can be broken down to two different styles that we know of.  There are probably a zillion more, but we are only going with two.

The first would be the Medical/Business, which is using the Meditation to control pain (Medical) and in business to relieve stress or clear you mind.  We have to admit using Mindfulness Meditation to control pain, once mastered, would be awesome.  We have read some articles where cancer patients have learned to control the intense pain with mediation (Scale of 1-10  20).  In business, from what we understand, Google employees have a Meditation Guru and they use the meditation to relieve stress and anxiety by breathing out the tenseness and relaxing.  This is good for the employee and boosts creativity in the work place.

The second is what we learned at The Insight Meditation Center in Redwood City, CA which is a Buddhist version for the mind, body, and spirit.  We also use this style when using Reiki Energy for healing.  Here when you are meditating and a thought comes into your mind and refuses to go away, you go deeper and determine what is causing the thought, then either work on the issue immediately or consider working on it at a later date.  An example would be you initially felt anger and when you went deep you found it came from a bullying incident when you were a child or from an event in the past.  This form of meditation is used to help yourself to clear out the crap you have collected throughout your life.  In Reiki cold energy is various part of the body is caused from specific emotions or past experiences.

So past experiences is what we are using Meditation to get rid of.  Think about it.  A a memory is an illusion.  So if you are getting angry from someone slapping you when you where a child, then you are living in an illusion. There is nothing you can do to stop the slap all these years later and the pain of the slap goes on because you are keeping it alive by thinking about it and reacting to it.  Just like when we quit smoking, when an urge from the past surfaced and we normally would go have a smoke, instead we recognized the urge, we talked to the urge by saying “You can hang around, but we choose not to smoke and will continue on by meditation.” The next time the urge came along we did not get an inkling to go have a smoke, we just noticed the urge and continued on.

So we are using meditation to move to “Live in the moment” because the past and the future are illusions and our only reality is in the now.  If you apply this to other people you will find that judgments go away. If you are judging someone based on a past experience then you are judging them on an illusion. Everything is in a state of change, in every moment, always, and in all ways so nothing is as it was.  People talk about peace of mind, or bliss, this is the way to get there.  It’s not easy, but the when you get there you will be grateful and thanks everyone you met along the way for helping you.

So here is this weeks meditation CONNECT TO THE SOURCE

We have nothing to add at this time except to thank all of you for stopping by and we send you many blessings.  Namaste
