There is a “biggest” purpose for meditation. It isn’t just about stress relief and stilling the mind–although that is immensely beneficial. Meditation is also a way to listen, to feel, sense, and be present with the greater part of you that extends beyond the physical realm, the part of you that is more than meets the eye, and the part of you that is ultimately interested in you being all that you can be.
As we get in touch with that, with the rest of who we are, we become the Healer, the Leader, the Visionary. We become the one in our family dynamic that holds the space for Love to prevail. We become the one in our workplace that senses there is a solution even when it looks like the squeeze is on, or there is pressure about a project or timing on something. We become the one who allows grace to flow, because it flows through us, not just to us.
As we allow ourselves to sit in a meditative way, we train the mind to be the true authentic servant to the heart. We begin to participate in a feeling recipe, a sensing tone, a communication, a collaboration with our inner wisdom and personal power, our ability to love unconditionally, our ability to speak our truth in all situations.
You get to be the visionary that you are, to grasp and catalyze the infinite possibilities that zoom through your mind every day, as “how I would love my life to be, how I would love my life to go.” As we begin to integrate, we not only combine those aspects of our whole being, we couple them with the fact that we are made of God-source energy, we are made of the very essence that nature is made of. There is nothing that we are not. As we begin to allow all of that truth to come together, we begin to sense and feel ourselves differently in the world than we did before.
