    Meditation helps me to become more grounded in

    the moment. I can slow down and see past disappointments and future worries as just mind activity. These thoughts are like passing clouds and meditation has helped me to acknowledge this. When the clouds part, there is just "now" and that is always an opportunity. I love...

    Resuming Meditation

    I want to resume practicing meditation daily. A year back I used to meditate daily, sometimes twice a day. Then it got to a point where I became afraid and stopped. The 'inner demon' I am talking about, that is. I guess that's a hurdle every meditation practitioner has to face...

    One day i was meditating,

    my whole consciousness shifted to a point. I felt like shrinking and falling back into my heart, lost body consciousness altogether. Just a silent awareness was left to perceive. An oceanic joy broke into my awareness. After that i have felt that extreme ecstasy even when i m...

    Let Your Mind Wonder

    Meditation is diffferent for everybody. Some use it as an escape from reality others to strengthen themselves. How you choose to use it is up to you. Meditation to me is a way to get away from all the negative things that are going on in my life and think of the positive things...

    A Nun's Schedule

    A yogini (female yogi), a monastic at the organization created by Paramahansa Yogananda to spread Kriya, was asked about her schedule. I don't have notes, so this is from memory: "I get up at four to meditate.  I join the other monastics at seven for meditation which ends with...

    When Meditation Makes You Stop Breathing

    I have already seen it mentioned on EP that meditation can result in the cessation of the breath. It is the natural result of the relaxation needed to experience That Beingness Within, and when breath is stopped through the practice of Kriya it has nothing to do with leaving the...

    I meditated for the first time today.

    I meditated for 20 minutes, and when I was finished I felt very calm and focused. I am also noticing background noises a lot, I can hear the clock ticking and little faint noises in the background that I never use to pay attention too. I look forward to doing it again tomorrow.
