 Meditation, an essential step

 « Suppose I am trying to understand what I do not know. But I will only be able to understand the unknown by keeping silent myself, by no longer responding to this intellect which speaks incessantly and disturbs everything.
 It is therefore in this sense that we must work on ourselves. For receive the impressions corresponding to other levels of life. »
(Jeanne Guesné, 'The Great Passage')magnifying glassAuthorContributions by Jeanne Guesné on the theme of:

The WAY , LOVE , LIFE or DEATH

 « The practice of silence is passive. To receive one must be silent, and the mind must be dumb (it cannot stop functioning but the consciousness must not take part in it). »
[ R. Bernard, Grand Master of the Rose Croix ]

 « Concentrate, empty your mind, withdraw from yourself, and wait. Concentration is difficult but it is essential. »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

 « You have to stop thinking, because 'thoughts are the clouds that hide the sun'. »
 (Barbara Contou-Carrère, Past Life Regressions)

 A process that must be understood

In the stress of our cities, meditation is increasingly sought after; to relax, empty ourselves, forget worries...
But understood in this way, it comes down to mentally withdrawing into oneself; whereas the true purpose of meditation is on the contrary to open our mind.

 « Most meditators meditate for themselves alone, for their own advancement. Becoming over the years sort of machines for visualizing or manufacturing emptiness, just as there are beings in churches or temples who are machines for reciting prayers.

 However, I announce it to you: none of you can rise by leaving behind him the mass of his brothers in sleep or suffering.

 The purpose of meditation is to put you in touch with your Essence. He who works only for his own liberation and apes Love, has not understood the function of life on this Earth. It is so easy to close your heart, to build yourself a little ivory tower, when a discipline gives the feeling of "working on yourself".

 I denounce here a trap that easily leads to apathy and selfishness. »
(D. Meurois and A. Givaudan, 'Par l’esprit du Soleil')magnifying glassAuthorContributions by Anne Givaudan on the theme of:

The WAY , LOVE , LIFE , HEALTH or DEATH

 « You have to take moments of silence and solitude to immerse yourself in yourself. One should not, however, then listen to one's own self. The effect would be just the opposite of what is to be achieved. On the contrary, we must allow the echo of the nature that surrounds us to resonate within us. »

« Prayer speaks to God, meditation listens to him. »

[a reading by Edgar Cayce]

Meditate, yes but why?

* *
«The practice of meditation, whatever it is, is absolutely necessary for humans. It must bring light to the depths of the being. Its effect is to reduce the boundary between the physical body and the etheric body☆ Excerpt from the page: "The beyond" :

The astral body

 (or spiritual body or etheric body)

  « The spiritual body is the exact replica of the physical body, because it develops in symbiosis, first in the embryo, then in the child, then the adolescent.

 (...) At our death, while the physical body will crumble into dust, our spiritual body will continue its existence. Despite its somewhat ethereal appearance in photographs, the soul is not something totally immaterial. It retains a certain consistency. »
[ Alain Joseph Bellet (medium) ]

.

 The development of inner light through meditation is absolutely necessary for your evolution. It is impossible for humans to find any other way to bring about, progress and maintain this inner light. »
[a reading by Edgar Cayce]

 « The practice of meditation is vital in the world in which we live. You have to know how to settle down, and silence the invading din of our mind. »
[ Dr. JJ Charbonier ]

« Human hustle and bustle
blocks all the escapes towards the beyond. »

[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

 « Learn, reflect, meditate. By strengthening, by expanding your consciousness, you decrease your dependence on the environment. You will certainly remain subject to it, but you will be free. »
[ "To those who seek" ]

 « The laborious side of your lives, always in search of material profits or human advantages, alters this supra-sensitive state in which one must be in order to receive the light of the beyond.

 (...) The agitation creates waves within you. How do you want me to land on these eddies? »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

 « After watching him die, and seeing what was essential to him at the end of his life, I seriously reconsidered my schedule. »
 (Mitch Albom, "The Old Man Who Taught Me About Life")

 « Make a date each day to spend some alone time. Take time to communicate with your angels.

« Purify your schedule. »

 When you are continually active, there is no time to think about the purpose of your life, your true self, and God. Yet nothing is more important than fulfilling the sacred mission for which you were born! Make it a priority to spend time alone in nature, in order to listen to your true self. »
[Doreen Virtue, "Communicating with Angels"]


 Find God within yourself

« Where there is no longer time or space, God is. »

[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

 « Meditation consists of closing ourselves off from the outside world, from daily reality and listening to our inner universe.

 « (...) By definition, whenever we listen to the creative force within us, we meditate. »
(J. Van Praagh, 'Dialogues with the Beyond')magnifying glassAuthorContributions by James Van Praagh on the subject of:

The WAY , LIFE or DEATH

 « The man who constantly pursues new sensations, who constantly seeks to "distract himself", cannot find the way to the science of the mind.

  Meditation is the path which leads man to the vision of the eternal indestructible center of his being. And it is by her alone that he can achieve this. This core of being, which is of an eternal nature, goes through successive incarnations.

  In these moments of isolation, do we provide for a "higher life". Little by little, this other life influences everyday life. The serenity of these exceptional moments extends over the whole of existence. The whole being becomes more peaceful, it depends less and less on the eddies and external circumstances which come to disturb the soul on all sides if the human being, instead of regulating this life, lets himself be governed by it.

  Because every man carries within him, alongside his everyday personality, a superior man☆ Excerpt from the page: "Taking-back-control" :

Every being is connected to their inner Self,
which is connected to God.

 Our inner being

 « In you there are two characters, one terrestrial, stuck to matter, mired in its heaviness, and the other celestial, letting itself be carried by the light. The moment you conceive your two poles, you become greedy for unity and begin your quest for purity. But that's also where the trouble begins! In the innocence of unconsciousness you found a certain tranquility, operating in the same patterns for generations, fit to taste the pleasures of the flesh.
 However, as soon as your consciousness opens to greater lucidity, your thirst for clarity comes up against the shadows.
 In the grip of an existential despair, your mind then plays monumental tricks on you. You become the prey of grief, terrible doubts, loneliness and your impatience.
 We are with you more than ever in these wanderings. Because then we recognize in you the flame, the inner fire.

 Then begins an interior dialogue between your soul, which has already recognized us, and us who are your servants, your companions on the way. At your side, ready to support you in the difficult passages, smiling at your stammerings as a child of light.

 In your heart of hearts, ego of earth and soul of light manifest themselves to each other and show themselves in turn. There is no point in adjusting them with a master's hand, there is no point in wishing for their fruitful friendship. Their role is not to oust each other. Thus you grow, by making in you the union of your part of incarnated man and your part of brilliance of light. It is there, in the balanced axis between these two aspects of yourself, that you touch that you touch the new dimension that allows you to Over-Live (among earthly torments). Then your personality of light irrigates your being incarnated in matter for a happy birth: that of the new Man in you, an incarnated reflection of the Father Creator. »
[ Brigitte Quéro, "Spiritual Messages"]
following...
. This superior man remains hidden until he is awakened. And each one can only awaken this superior man in him by himself. As long as this higher man is not awakened, the possibilities of acquiring supersensible knowledge which sleeps in every man remain hidden.

  This superior man then becomes the inner master; he who with a sure hand directs the conduct of the outer man. As long as the latter led the boat, the inner man was his slave and obviously could not be strengthened. Because, as long as an intervention from outside can irritate me, I am not my master. I must develop in myself the ability to allow impressions from the outside world to come to me only in the way that I myself have determined.
  The essential thing is not to achieve this mastery in a given time, but to strive for it with perseverance. »
[ Rudolf Steiner ]

How to meditate?

_ _

 « According to Cayce, the first step in all meditation and prayer is the voluntary and controlled opening of the chakras (the glandular centers); that is to say, you have to put yourself in a state of light trance in order to cause a change in vibrational level. »
[ Dorothée Koechlin, "L'univers d'Edgar Cayce" ]

 « It is important to adopt a place of reflection that is always the same. It is also preferable to have specific times for meditation. »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

However
 « A practice by itself is never apt to open the heart. It is the state of consciousness that operates the transformation.
 I know that you who listen to me, you are looking for the Source...
 The answer, friend, does not reside in the "how to do" but in the "how to be." »
(D. Meurois and A. Givaudan, 'Par l’esprit du Soleil')magnifying glassAuthorContributions by Anne Givaudan on the theme of:

The WAY , LOVE , LIFE , HEALTH or DEATH

 « A lot of people get hit on by gurus who tell them, 'I'm going to teach you meditation (transcendental, fundamental, horizontal, etc.). These poor "pigeons", to be fashionable, embark with the guru who, under the pretext of teaching them these marvelous oriental techniques, relieves them of their money.

 There are a thousand and a thousand forms of meditation that we know well. Nature lovers who go on long hikes, sea lovers who listen to the wind sing in the sails, music lovers who meditate during their favorite concerto... all these people, in fact, meditate. »
[ Dorothée Koechlin, "L'univers d'Edgar Cayce" ]

 « Meditation helps to hear the messages of the angels, but it is not the only way. By connecting with nature, you slow down your emotions and thoughts. Make a habit of appreciating every bit of nature – a cloud, a tree, the chirping of a bird – you will experience a wonderful relief. Spend time in nature. A hike, a snack in a park or at the edge of a stream and you re-establish your links with Mother Nature and your guardian angels.

 Another way is to take two or three deep breaths, hold your breath for five to ten seconds, and then exhale slowly. Imagine yourself inspiring relaxation, joy, peace. Exhale stress, tension and worries. The spirit world communicates with us through our breath. Breathing (deeply) is in essence, the way to call Heaven. »
[Doreen Virtue, "Communicating with Angels"]

 « Scents promote meditation by helping to 'open' the glandular centers (or chakras ) during it. Cayce particularly recommends lavender whose specific action produces a calm favorable to the meditative state. »

The wonderment



 « When you look at a flower, there are two ways to see it. Observe its colors, its shape, nothing more; and then there is the other way, that of the angels, that which provokes the contemplative state. You contemplate the created, you admire it, and a kind of grace invades you; your level goes up; you fill yourself with bliss; you are fulfilled, because beauty has projected you into the highest part of yourself.
 Silence, recollection are the essential conditions for these touches of grace to spring up within you. »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

 « We must collect ourselves in front of all that is beautiful. »
[ Maguy Lebrun ]

 « Emotion is proportionate to the quality of the soul. »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

 « Wisdom begins in wonder. »
 (Socrates (470-399 BC))

 « Everything opens onto something larger than yourself. Everything becomes, road and window on something other than oneself. »
[ Saint-Exupéry ]

 « Rapture, there is nothing closer to heaven than those moments when your soul blossoms.

 Contemplation is a path. Work on creating harmony between you and the “All”. May your soul commune with the pulsations of nature. »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

 « Your faith is like the extreme tip of yourselves; sometimes it rises so high that it merges with the first degrees of the sky. These soaring escapes reach our flowerbeds. »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

 « A stripped spirit that soars can reach dizzying heights.

 Thought is capable of making breakthroughs towards the divine essence. Pray, meditate, expect nothing, hope for nothing, the peace of the angels will penetrate you.

 The state of "connected" meditation can suddenly invade the being. The real moves away, everything fades. Time no longer counts, the soul, out of life, has arrived at the “Holy of Holies”. This state cannot be provoked, it is the state of grace. »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

  Wonder and curiosity are two.
  The amazed are envoys.
  Look for them! They will teach you.

 - Books or men?

  It's the same thing.
  To him who seeks, the master is given.

  Around the one who knows how to marvel,
  marvels hatch.

Self-isolate



 « Phenomena, manifestations of quality can only occur at a certain level of solitude. »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

 « The walk on the mountain, and this voice that speaks and only speaks in silence. For the space of the mind, where it can open its wings, is silence. And he who returns, returns suckled by the gods. And always this honey will seem bitter. And every new and fertile word will sound bitter. No one has known a happy moult; if I elevate you, it's because I pull you out of your skin.

 I have always honored for man, like too forgotten gods, silence and slowness. »
[ Saint-Exupéry ]

 « Nature is a contact, a true thread that can connect to sources in the background.

 Your daydreams in nature can reach a rare quality. Is it not from the branch of a tree that a bird flies away?

 (...) Take refuge in nature. Alone, walk on bare ground. Flee the cities where the earth is imprisoned under the asphalt. Look for the alleys, the small roads, you will recharge yourself, without knowing it, with pure elements. Walk to find yourself.

 (...) The cry of the cricket, the song of the titmouse, the smell of the flowers, all will solicit your soul to raise it towards the peaks. »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

 « For the rough, silence is simply the absence of noise. For those who know how to listen, silence sings, because in it remains all the invisible, this invisible as populated as a drop of water, apparently empty.

 Convince yourself of this truth: solitude is essential to this state which can put you in communication with the supernatural. »

« Nature is, like you, an emanation of God. »
[ "To those who seek" ]

The trees,
the nature

_ _

T rees and flowers are part of the universal soul. By their very simplicity, they constitute a connection with the common Creator. To touch a tree by joining your heart to it... is to bring our spirit closer to its source.
**
 « Every flower is connected to paradise.
 (...) God gives himself to you through creation, so love the gardens, the flowers, the grass, the trees. »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

 « The trees have vibrations, and an infinity of waves emanate from these vegetable masses.

 The forest has its aura, and this aura is a sheet of ether where we like to rest; this is why the forest is inhabited.

 The hours of meditation under the trees are particularly beneficial, because the tree is a kind of magnet that captures the supernatural fluids, especially the fir tree.

 Primitive men had a special attachment to trees. Why was justice dispensed in the shade of certain trees? The man, instinctively, placed himself in the celestial currents. Near the trees, a superior clairvoyance is given to man. »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

 « Sometimes trees give us messages to help us get through the trials of life. »
[ Michèle Decker, "Life on the Other Side" ]

 « The tree is the complete expression of the generosity of mother earth. Besides, he alone is almost a mother for humans. It can feed it, protect it from the sun, from the cold, die in the fire to warm it, brighten its heart with its flowers and the changing color of its leaves, whistle in the wind.

 The day the trees disappear from the planet, humans will also disappear, for lack of being able to breathe. When you are near a tree, say hello to it mentally, thank it for existing, and tell it that without its presence the planet would be less beautiful.

 Embrace a tree like a brother. Also lean your forehead on it to better blend into it.

 The human, overwhelmed by the weight of life and having lost his joy of living, can come to a tree and ask it to relieve his problems. In addition, a powerful generator of energy, the tree knows how to impress the physical body with a good push towards healing. »
